Now that the lockout is over and the Bruins are returning to stateside, a lot of fun or otherwise interesting tales of their European adventures are coming to light.
Such as the fact that Johnny Boychuk's team, EC Red Bull Salzburg, only gave its players Red Bull to drink. No water. No Gatorade. Just fucking gross Red Bull.
It may be a while before Johnny Boychuk drinks a Red Bull. There wasnt water or Gatorade – only Red Bull – in Salzburg Red Bulls locker room

Makes sense that there'd be Red Bull in the locker room since it's the main sponsor, but no water or Gatorade? Seriously? How do you not drop dead on the ice?
Also, is there anything scarier than Johnny Boychuk coked up on Red Bull? Does his slapshots turn the puck into pure energy upon release?
Meanwhile, Chara is jealous his team wasn't sponsored by Coca-Cola.
Also, we learned — thanks to Deadspin and some really mouthy cleaners — that Tyler Seguin had a dirty apartment. Like a really dirty apartment. Or as the rest of us call it — being a 20 y/o bachelor.
Apparently this is news because no 20-year-old male who's living on his own for the first time has ever had a dirty apartment. Ever. Never happens. We're all super clean neat freaks from the moment we live the nest and go out into the world on our own.
We feel bad that Seguin tipped these guys $200 and then they went and talked about how dirty he is. Jerks.
We did love this line though:
Blick said the hockey player was "not versed in appliances" and as a result tried to wash his clothes in the dryer.
