Note: The Red Sox have moved Saturday’s game time to accommodate the Boston Bruins Stanley Cup parade.
The game will start at 7 p.m.  instead of  1  p.m.  Pre-game action on WTIC NewsTalk 1080 is 6:30.

BOSTON (AP) _ The route is set for the Bruins’ victory parade.

The Stanley Cup champions will board duck boats for the parade that will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the TD Garden.

The parade will proceed down Causeway Street and turn left on Staniford Street, then turn left on Cambridge Street, right on Tremont, and right on Boylston before ending in Copley Square.

City officials said Thursday that traffic will be shut down on the parade route starting at 9 a.m. and parking restrictions will be in effect.

Officials are strongly urging parade-goers to use public transportation. The MBTA says it will offer bus and subway service comparable to a weekday rush hour throughout Saturday.

The T will also offer a special $10 round trip ticket on commuter rail.
