BOSTON (WWLP) - The Bruins quest for the Stanley Cup continues Wednesday night in Boston where hockey fever is fueling the city.
Two months ago today, Boston was on edge as police chased and captured the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
22News was outside the TD Garden where the Bruins are helping in the healing process.
After the 9/11 attacks it was baseball in New York that gave people a few hours to take their minds off the attacks. The Yankees lost in the World Series that year, but helped rally the city together.
Boston Strong has been the rallying cry here since the Marathon bombings. The Bruins, now two wins away from a Stanley Cup, has helped give this city something to cheer for after a long two months.
Normally in the middle of June, the first place Red Sox would be on everyone's mind, but the Bruins have stolen the hearts of the fans.
Even in a lockout shortened season, the Bruins have become the team to see in Boston.
Boston is two wins away from its 2nd Stanley cup title in three years. The Bruins won the pivotal Game 3 on Monday night, and stole home ice advantage away from the Chicago Blackhawks. Boston has a 2-1 lead in the best of seven series.
