Boston Bruins Parade Not Yet Scheduled, Likely To Be Held Friday Or Saturday

The Boston Bruins are Stanley Cup Champions (just wanted to type that again). The Bruins beat the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup FInals Wednesday night, 4-0, led by a Tim Thomas shutout. That part you probably already know. What you don't yet know is when the championship parade through the streets of Boston will be held, and that's because no one knows. 

Thursday morning, members of Mayor Thomas Menino's office will meet to discuss a plan for the victory parade, and decide if it will be held on Friday or Saturday. 

One would think that after the city did not allow for a viewing party of Game 7 at TD Garden because of safety concerns, they would be inclined to hold the parade on Friday, with the assumption that a work day would keep the crowd size to a relatively containable number. 

Adding to the decision-making process: The Boston Red Sox are playing in Fenway Park at 1 p.m. ET.
