MBTA Officer Dic Donohue Waves ‘Boston Strong’ Flag Before Game 3
The wounded transit officer waved a giant flag at game three of the Eastern Conference Finals.
MBTA Transit Police Officer Dic Donohue had the honor of waving a giant flag before the Bruins game against the Penguins on Wednesday night in front of thousands of fans and supporters.
The officerâ€™s wife, Kim, made the announcement about Donohue being picked to go out on the ice and wave a â€śBoston Strongâ€ť flag for fans before Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden.
â€śIt has been a long [six] weeks with a lot of ups and downs, and it is finally time for Dic to have some fun and get out of a hospital setting, even if for only one night,â€ť Donohueâ€™s wife wrote on the Facebook page prior to the game. â€śI am so unbelievably proud of my husband and couldnâ€™t be happier that he gets to show his true [Boston] pride! Sean, the first wave of that flag will be for you.â€ť
This morning, she posted photos of her husband, who was injured in Aprilâ€™s shootout with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, along with the words â€śBoston Strong,â€ť and nothing more.
The Bruins beat the Penguins in double overtime, putting them in a 3-0 lead in the series and one win away from competing for the Stanley Cup. Game 4 is set for Friday night at the Garden.
