That's champion, you know, with an 'o' Add to ...

Hey look, the Boston Bruins are back in the Bell Centre for the first time since winning the Stanley Cup.

And after a fine night's work in his hometown of Halifax on Sunday, the scourge of Habs' nation Brad Marchand is in the building.

Where Marchand goes, so does one of the more unfortunate misspellings in recent tattoo history.

As the pesky Marchand wrote himself here a couple of days ago, several of the Bruins got some body ink to commemorate their Cup triumph.

Except his read "2011 Stanley Cup champians".

After wandering back into the team's dressing room to show off the results - the tattoo is on his midsection - Marchand was apprised of the typo.

"We got them done in the arena, so I just went across the hall and he fixed it right away," smiled Marchand, who will not be in the lineup for Monday's preseason tilt.

Nor will the Bell Centre have the chance to boo Zdeno Chara or former Hab Benoit Pouliot, who both played Sunday.
