Happens quite a bit in Boston which is mainly media-driven. As soon as a team in the other sports (Celts/Pats/Sox) finishes their season/isn't in first place/loses in playoffs, the local media immediately switch their full coverage to the team that is. Then you get a lot of people who usually never talk hockey at the water cooler suddenly talking hockey as it has taken over the media.
Regarding gear, everyone here has a piece of Bruins gear in the closet. Boston remembered it's a hockey town a couple years ago and the black and yellow looks best on everyone.
