Participating in the unveiling event will be 351 fans, representative of the number of Massachusetts towns and cities. Of those, 150 were winners of the Lottery's Facebook contest who also were invited to watch the Bruins practice and have photos taken with the Stanley Cup.
Sales from the 2011 Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Champions Instant Ticket are expected to reach more than $60 million and generate more than $9.7 million in local aid revenues available for Massachusetts’ 351 cities and towns.

The new $5 instant game marks the third time Boston Bruins and Mass. State Lottery have partnered together. The two organizations first partnered on a $2 game that was released in October 2009, and again in September 2010, on a $5 game. That $5 game sold out of stores in June 2011, just two weeks after the Bruins clinched their first Stanley Cup Championship in 39 years.
The 2011-2012 Boston Bruins season is presented by the Massachusetts State Lottery.
