Bruins coming to Providence

PROVIDENCE, RI – The Stanley-cup winning Boston Bruins have accepted an invitation to do a victory lap in the city of Providence.

Mayor Angel Taveras says a date for the celebration hasn't been firmed up yet but he anticipates some sort of party towards the end of September.

"It'll happen," he says. "It's just a question of when and with who. But it'll happen."

What kind of celebration do you envision? I ask.

"I envision a happy celebration," he says. "I envision a mayoral picture with the cup. And perhaps other people will get to take pictures too!"

Right now members of the team are taking turns displaying the Cup in their hometowns.
