BOSTON (AP) — A man has been stabbed in the leg in Boston near the playoff game between the Boston Bruins and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Police say the 26-year-old man was stabbed shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday on Portland Street, which is a short distance away from the hockey arena at TD Garden.

A group of recently graduated traffic officers applied a tourniquet to his upper leg to stop the bleeding until he was transported to a local hospital.
