random report from someone on hfboards bruins website that said a Garden employee said that the game tonight will be cancelled.

It should be, for safety and out of respect

http://vine.co/v/bFdt5uwg6JZ video of one of the explosions.

Horrible stuff!! Though I am amazed with the guy who just keeps on running like it didn't phase him or anything.

I hope it turns out ot be an accident rather than deliberately planned but slim to no chance of that.

My thoughts are with anyone who was hurt or killed because of this and their families.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Have a friend who ran the race. Heard about the explosion but wasn't able to hear from him for about 30 minutes. Facebook update revealed he is okay, but there is massive panic right now. Nobody knows where to go or where is safe.

VERY GRAPHIC

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

So because they poked fun at the riots, an event where many systematically destroyed their own city over a hockey game, you then think it is okay for you to make fun of an attack upon their city? Really?

People taking shots at Boston because of the riot and us losing the cup?

Why am I not surprised.

What, and because they cracked a few jokes about a bunch of drunken idiots burning their city over a hockey game makes it perfectly justifiable to make light of the death and dismemberment of innocent bystanders.

Weren't you the one who just laughed at a Dr. Recchi joke....Or maybe my sarcasm detector is broken. This is a really scary time for the people of Boston and I wish everyone their safety.

I'm hearing two others (undetonated) - library and Mandarin (?) Hotel. Evacuated both locations.

Thoughts are with the people in Boston...what a horrific twist to what should be a festive event. Horrible.
