Boston Bruins Parade 2011 Live: Marc Savard Participating In Saturday's Event

According to NHL rules, Marc Savard didn't play enough games with the Boston Bruins in the 2011 season to get his name engraved on the Stanley Cup, but that's not going to stop him from participating in Saturday's 2011 Stanley Cup victory parade through the streets of the city.

General manager Peter Chiarelli said that Savard, who couldn't even attend most Bruins playoff games in person due to severe concussion symptoms that still bother him, will be in Boston and will be on a float for the parade, which begins at TD Garden at 11 a.m. and winds through the streets for about two hours. 

Chiarelli and the Bruins will also petition the NHL to have Savard, as well as oft-injured defenseman Steven Kampfer, get a spot on the Cup regardless of their injury status. The NHL usually accepts such petitions.
