    Worcester Hockey With A Heart

    Hockey with a heart scores big

    WORCESTER-- An unlikely collection of players from television, film, politics and public safety battled back from an early deficit to tie a team of former Stanley Cup champs and other Bruins alumni in yesterday's Celebrity Hat Trick hockey game.
    Well, sort of.
    The game, which raised money for the Leary Firefighters Foundation, featured several beloved Bruins greats and a Hollywood All-Star Team comprising, among others, actors Tim Robbins and Rick Moranis, Sen. John F. Kerry and actor and comedian Denis Leary.
    The event also featured some inventive rules and a last-second goal by the Celebrity All-Stars that appeared to have been hand-delivered past the unsuspecting goalie while the rest of the players waited for a face-off in the right circle.
    Mr. Leary, a Worcester native, established the foundation after the December 1999 Worcester Cold Storage Co. warehouse fire that claimed the lives of six firefighters. Among those killed was Mr. Leary's cousin, Jeremiah M. Lucey. The Leary Firefighters Foundation provides money to fire departments for equipment, technology and training.
    Steve Tyler, lead singer for the rock group Aerosmith, gave a high-octane rendition of the national anthem, inflicting more casualties to the lyrics than the British could manage at Fort McHenry.
    Before the game, an honor guard of firefighters hoisted to the rafters a white banner with the names of the six fallen Worcester firefighters and a firefighter logo into which was incorporated the names of Rescue 1, Ladder 2 and Engine 3, their respective units.
