Bruins In The Stanley Cup Finals Means Big Bucks For Local Business
BOSTON (CBS) – The Bruins Stanley Cup run has been a lot of fun for fans. It has also been good for business.
For starters, hotels are getting a bump.
“There are about 5,500 fans who are coming to the game, actually have tickets to the game who are coming from outside of the Boston area,” said Pat Moscaritolo, President of the Greater Boston Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
