BOSTON (CBS) – While the Bruins look forward to being back on the ice next year, they are also looking at making a Bruins game better off the ice.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports.

The Bruins want to enhance the game-day experience of their fans and Charlie Jacobs says they’ve made a big step in that direction, signing a 75-year lease of the MBTA garage underneath North Station.

They envision mall-style retail shops, better parking and a second entrance and exit onto Legends Way and Causeway Street.

“As anybody who has attended a game or any event at the Garden, it can be very difficult to get out, and I personally have experienced it. It’s a grind,” said Charlie Jacobs, of the Bruins.

The Bruins’ Charlie Jacobs says they would combine that with the open parking area in front:

“Have them both combined, maybe do some enhancements to both properties, and when I say enhancements, I mean as we build up the front lot, maybe we do some bump-outs to this building to improve both game experience and the player environment, locker rooms, weight rooms, etc.” said Jacobs.

Specifics are not in place and Jacobs says this wouldn’t be reality until 2014 or 2015.
