Victory parade will shut down several city streets on Saturday

The route is set for the Bruins’ victory parade.

The Stanley Cup champions will board duck boats for the parade that will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday at the TD Garden.

The parade will proceed down Causeway Street and turn left on Staniford Street, then turn left on Cambridge Street, right on Tremont and right on Boylston before ending in Copley Square.

City officials said Thursday that traffic will be shut down on the parade route starting at 9 a.m., and parking restrictions will be in effect.

Officials are strongly urging parade-goers to use public transportation. The MBTA says it will offer bus and subway service comparable to a weekday rush hour throughout Saturday. The T will also offer a special $10 round trip ticket on commuter rail.

The Red Sox have pushed back the start time of their Saturday home game with the Milwaukee Brewers to avoid a conflict with the parade. The game at Fenway Park will be played at 7:10 p.m. instead of 1:10 p.m.

Five men arrested after big game appear in Boston Municipal Court

Five men arrested during celebrations of the Bruins’ Stanley Cup championship have appeared in Boston Municipal Court.

Police say one man encouraged a crowd near TD Garden to turn on police and dared officers to arrest him. Authorities say that when at first they didn’t, he shouted obscenities, took off his shirt and threw his belt at the officers. He was arrested on charges including inciting a riot and disorderly conduct. Bail was set at $500.

Three men have been charged with malicious destruction of property. They’re accused of smashing mirrors on parked cars. They were released Thursday on personal recognizance. A fifth man was arraigned for assault and battery after allegedly shoving a police officer.

Two other arrests were reported. Police say most revelers behaved responsibly.
