Dem. Lynch: Banner questions loyalty to Bruins

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Stephen Lynch is crying foul over a banner that was being flown over downtown Boston hours before a hockey match-up between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens.

The banner which was trailed behind an airplane Wednesday said "Steve Lynch says: Go Habs! And Go Canadian Dirty Oil."

The "Habs" is the nickname for the Canadiens.

The banner was the work of environmental activists backed by California billionaire Thomas Steyer, who has called on Lynch to renounce his support for the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would run from western Canada to Texas.

Lynch said the banner questions his loyalty to the Bruins.

Lynch's campaign said he's not only a longtime Bruins fan, but sponsored legislation creating the Boston Bruins license plates that help raise money for youth hockey in Massachusetts.
