The parade route has been set for the Boston Bruins' championship celebration, with the parade starting at 11 a.m. at TD Garden and ending at Copley Square in downtown Boston.
Originally, rumors indicated that the parade might take place on Friday, but Saturday worked out better for the players, according to Boston mayor Thomas Menino.
"This is the players' rally, not my rally," Menino said. "We wanted to do what the players wanted. They're the ones that brought the championship to Boston." (via WEEI)
Boston won its first Stanley Cup since 1972 on Wednesday night, defeating the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0, in Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final at Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
Tim Thomas was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy immediately after the game. The trophy honors the MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
