Boston preparing for possible Stanley Cup win
Question of the Day
BOSTON (AP) - The city of Boston is taking extra precautions as it prepares for possible Stanley Cup celebrations.
The Boston Bruins are in Vancouver on Wednesday to take on the Canucks in the seventh and deciding game of the NHL's championship series.
Even though the team is on the road, police are deploying hundreds of extra officers to patrol the streets around TD Garden and Fenway Park, neighborhoods with dozens of sports bars where fans tend to congregate.
The city is also banning on-street parking in those same areas.
The Bruins also decided against holding a fans viewing party in the TD Garden because of potential problems.
NFL, NBA and World Series championship celebrations in the city in the past seven years have resulted in three deaths and widespread vandalism.
