PHOTOS: Boston Bruins To Welcome Stanley Cup Home In Style

The Boston Bruins bring the Stanley Cup home on Thursday night as they open the season at TD Garden Arena. The Bruins downed the Vancouver Canucks in a thrilling seven-game series last season, taking care of business in the final game of the series to capture the cup.

And on Thursday night, as the Bruins open the season with a matchup against the Philadelphia Flyers, the pregame will have a heavy dose of the Stanley Cup.

Here's the scene outside TD Garden ahead of Thursday night's season-opener.
