NHL lockout felt beyond Bruins’ ice

Parking lots and even youth leagues are losing out

As the National Hockey League lockout slogs on with no resolution in sight, bars and restaurants around TD Garden keep losing revenue — as much as $1 million for every Bruins game that’s canceled, according to the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau.

But the business impact of the Bruins’ forced hiatus — all league games have been canceled through Jan. 14 — extends beyond the restaurant industry and Causeway Street. From the lots where fans park their cars on game nights to youth leagues where their children play and the shops where they buy equipment and memorabilia, the NHL’s third work stoppage in 19 seasons is taking a toll that mounts with each passing day.
