BOSTON The Bruins were the first Boston team to play at home after the bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon, and they were happy to give the city something else to think about.

Now that they're in the Stanley Cup finals, the Bruins are hoping that their success can contribute to the healing process.

Bruins coach Claude Julien says everybody is looking for something to smile about, and it might as well be his team. But he knows that winning a championship won't fix the people that were hurt in the April 15 attacks.

Three people were killed and hundreds more wounded when two bombs exploded at the marathon finish line. Most Boston sporting events were canceled that week as the focus turned to a city-wide manhunt.
