If you can’t get enough of the Boston Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup victory and all the ceremonies that come with it, then Versus should make you very happy on Wednesday. Versus will air a behind the scenes look at the Bruins’ banner-raising ceremony starting at 6:30 pm ET.

That rare special will lead into NHL Live and then Versus will begin exclusive coverage during Wednesday games as the Bruins visit the Carolina Hurricanes. (People hoping to catch 2011 playoff scoring champion David Krejci might be out of luck, though.)

A lot of people complained about the lengthy, bombastic ceremony during the Bruins’ home opener, but it’s hard to blame a team for going a little over the top when they waited so long to win another championship. Tomorrow’s feature won’t make those people feel any better, but it should be an interesting segment for most hockey fans – especially fans of the B’s.

    Went on a four day bender after the B’s won it. Because, let’s be real about it. It was a little miraculous and unexpected. Especially after the meltdown last year against the Flyers. I watched everything, I just don’t remember it. This may help.

    Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup Champions.

    Yeah. That’s just not getting old yet.
