A skate at the Garden a family affair for Rooneys of Canton
Hockey is a common thread at the Rooney residence in Canton. So too is taking the ice at TD Garden. Chris Rooney, a junior forward at Providence College, laced up his skates for the first time at the Garden in the Hockey East semifinals. His older brother, Joe, played at the Garden for Boston College. And their father, Steve, also a Providence alum, played five seasons in the National Hockey League, winning a Stanley Cup with the Canadiens in 1986.
