“Let’s go Bruins!”
“We got the cup!”
Familiar chants like these filled the streets of Boston this weekend.
A sea of black and gold packed the T early Saturday morning with Bruins fans from all over Massachusetts heading to downtown Boston for the Bruins championship parade.
With food stands, kids with their own Stanley Cup made out of buckets and aluminum foil, and die-hard hockey fans, the parade celebrated the title earned after 39 years of drought.
The Bruins players, family and friends began the parade from TD Garden, and nearly two hours later, ended up at Copley Square.
In the first duck boat, Captain Zdeno Chara held the Stanley Cup above his head. Nathan Horton, who suffered a severe concussion and subsequently missed the last four games of the playoffs, waved to the fans as well.
Since 2007, Boston saw the Red Sox, the Celtics, and the Bruins win national titles, and each time held traditional duck boat parades.
If you missed the coverage or if you just can’t get enough of the Bruins, watch this video of what I could see at Government Center this weekend.
