Currently both the Bruins and Patriots have players who have very similar last names. Of these players two are done for the year and one is dealing with concussion issues. Hopefully, the remaining players can avoid the injury bug because one is our leading point scorer for the Patriots. On the Bruins we have Carl Soderberg (concussion) and Dennis Seidenberg (torn ACL and MCL) who have similar sounding names. Matt Bartkowksi, defenseman for the Bruins, has a name similar to Patriots' standouts Rob Gronkowski (torn ACL and MCL) and Stephen Gostkowski.
Some other fun names from both the past and present:
Ronnie Lippett and Andre Tippett from the Patriots' first Superbowl Run
Pete Peeters, former Bruins' goalie
Esposito, Rico Petrocelli, Nomar Garciaparra, Rajon Rondo, Coco Crisp, Varitek, Saltalamacchia, Tuukka Rask, Mirabelli, Tully Banta-Cain, Tedy Bruschi, Youk and Yaz.
I'm sure I've omitted a few obvious ones, so make a comment about any that I've missed.
