As if the Boston Bruins didn't have enough motivation heading into the weekend, they received a classic Hulk Hogan rant to see them into Game 1 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. 

Via CBS Boston, Hogan stopped by 98.5 The Sports Hub’s "Toucher & Rich Show" on Friday and was asked to take on his legendary persona to deliver an epic speech for the Bruins faithful. 

A normal interview talking about his upcoming appearance at TNA Wrestling's Slammiversary XI on Sunday took another turn when the producer for Felger & Mazz, James Stewart, stopped by. 

One of the hosts then asked for Hogan to dig deep for a "Mean Gene riff." 

The legend didn't disappoint. Full audio of the rant can be found over at CBS Boston:

That's a no-brainer, brother. Let me tell you something, Mean Gene. The Boston Bruins, every time I used to sit in the old Boston Garden, brother, I could smell the stench of victory. 

It wasn't their jock strap I was smelling. I could smell the Boston Bruins. They had it in their blood. They were champions, and all I did was feed on that energy. And every time, Mean Gene, I would go out in the Boston Garden and tear the place down, brother. 

So, what you gonna do this year now that the Bruins are up and running, and they're gonna run wild on you, dude. 

There you have a classic rant with all the requisite "brothers" and "Mean Genes" peppered throughout. It's enough to make any wrestling fan a bit nostalgic. 

We will go ahead and forgive the slight stumble when he tries to clarify that he wasn't actually smelling jock straps. Hogan rights the ship and delivers something that will serve to get every Boston fan in the area good and amped for the Eastern Conference Final.

Pittsburgh fans, as we know, are already well prepared for the task at hand. As Yahoo! Sports spotted, there is a Pittsburgh bar banning all Boston beers for the duration of the series. 

Hogan chiming in with a classic speech brings the heat surrounding the upcoming clash to the ridiculous level we rather enjoy for these types of series. 

The only thing missing in this case was Mean Gean standing in awe of the Hulkster as he is bombarded him with a healthy display of "brothers."
