It may have been a loud crowd at last night's Bruins playoff game, but thankfully, they were also well-behaved. A sold out Affinity Place saw people packed shoulder to shoulder in the standing room only area.
"We did have some extra staff on hand," explained Police Chief, Paul Ladouceur, "just because of the numbers. We don't generally see those types of crowds but absolutely no problems at all. It was a good crowd and well behaved. So no issues from a policing standpoint."
"I think when people are out to see a game, they're not out to cause any problems, they're there for the game. Obviously, a number of people were there for the memorial portion as well. It was great to see that many people turn out to these games."
As well, Ladouceur noted that there were no impaired drivers last night which he was pleased to see and hopes will become a trend.
"We're going to do it all again tonight and we'll see how tonight pans out but like I said, good crowds and no problems from a policing standpoint."
