The Bruins are back from Vancouver with the Stanley Cup in town, and Mayor Menino announced this morning that the city would toss a championship parade Saturday morning at 11.
The parade will begin at the TD Garden and end at Copley Square. The exact route is to be finalized later today, but the Boston Business Journal points out that the Celtics' 2008 parade began and ended at similar locations, and took a route that turned onto Cambridge Street, then onto Tremont, before turning right onto Boylston Street and ending at Copley.
The Bruins are Stanley Cup champions for the first time since 1972 by virtue of their dominant 4-0, Game 7 win over the Vancouver Canucks. And while the late-night streets were relatively quiet in Boston, violent riots broke out in Vancouver after watching the Canucks fail to win their first Cup in franchise history. The front page of this morning's Vancouver Province seems almost like it was taken in a war zone. Sad.
