Toronto men accused of tearing Boston Bruins mural
BOSTON (AP) — Some Toronto Maple Leafs fans are apparently still having trouble handling their team’s playoff collapse against the Bruins last spring.
Management at The Greatest Bar in Boston say a group of men from Toronto celebrating a bachelor party tore down a section of a mural commemorating the Bruins comeback from a late 4-1 deficit for a 5-4 overtime win May 13.
Manager Jimmy Ferola tells the Boston Herald between eight and 11 men showed up on a party bus Saturday night and as they left, tore the 20-foot-long, computer-generated montage on a wall between the second and third floors.
Owner Bill Fairweather estimates damage at $1,000 and wants those responsible to pay.
The vandalism was caught on video surveillance and authorities know which bus the men were on.
