The region exploded in collective joy last night as the Bruins won their first championship in almost four decades with a dominating Game Seven victory over the Vancouver Canucks. Thousands of electrified fans rushed into city streets, leaping through the night and embracing strangers in a euphoric celebration.
Joyous throngs gathered near the TD Garden, where a largely peaceful crowd celebrated amid a massive police presence, some in riot gear. Police said that by 1 a.m., there were two arrests. Injuries were minimal, officials said.
