I was wondering if there was a policy somewhere about photography and camera's at the arena? I remember security checking with their bosses whether certain lenses were small enough to be brought in. I don't have anything big but was wondering what the minimum was?

I have been able to sneak my 80-400mm lens in, along with the contents of my school bag. Of course, maybe they will be stricter this year, who knows, and I don't know what the minimum is, but you definitely have a shot at getting your lens in, I would say.

The last I remember it was no "professional" lenses. It doesn't define what "professional" means. I take it to mean anything longer than 300mm. I can see one have a really tough time getting in with a Nikon 70-200 F 2.8. (I used Nikon because those are the lenses I'm familiar with.) Yankee Stadium has a no video camera policy, even though most DSLR's nowadays have video capability they'll allow them in. They didn't even look at my 70-300 lens.

This is from the Prudential Center web site:

Small, non-professional still cameras may be brought into the Prudential Center. Please note that for certain events cameras may not be allowed into the arena. Video, audio, and professional camera and recording devices are prohibited. Fans may not reproduce any film, digital, video or audio recording for commercial purposes without the express written consent of the Prudential Center. They don't define "small" B )

I'm sure "small and non-professional lenses" is written purposely vague. This is probably done so they can really tell you whatever they want that night and not have anybody go "HA! It says I can do this!". They also are probably a little less strict when it's not a big game, as compared to them maybe being stricter on a more important night, i.e. Marty hitting 500 wins a couple years ago or maybe the Nieds retirement night this year.
