The New England Revolution took down the Columbus Crew 3-1 at Gillette Stadium this weekend, setting up a showdown against the New York Red Bulls in two weeks in the Eastern Conference finals. Perhaps they were buoyed by their honorary captains — Boston Bruins players Kevan Miller, Reilly Smith and Matt Fraser — who showed off some deft ball-juggling skills on the sideline.

With the weekend off, Miller, Smith, and Fraser hung out on the sideline before the game, and had a fun little game of keep-it-up.
Based on these six seconds, I’d say Fraser’s juggling skills are pretty deft for a guy who spends most of his time in skates. Smith could use some work, but hey, maybe six seconds later he did a bicycle kick over the sideline wall. Who knows?
Then again, this video of Bruins players hanging out says that the guys juggle soccer balls back and forth before most games, and guess who Brad Marchand calls out (using some friendly expletives) for being terrible? Reilly “Smitty” Smith. Looks like he’s getting a bit of a reputation.
