Good Wednesday morning to all, and welcome into yet another tremendous edition of the Daily Noontime! Here are some of the day’s headlines and news, enjoy.

* Without left-winger Brad Marchand in the line-up, the Boston Bruins managed to pick up an important win against the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday evening. Nathan Horton netted two of the team’s five goals, while Tuukka Rask recorded 29 saves between the pipes. The Bruins will enjoy a day of rest, and then welcome the Montreal Canadiens to the TD Garden on Thursday for a 7:00pm face-off.

* According to an article from ESPNBoston.com – Marchand expressed that he wasn’t happy to fork over $152,439.02. He also admitted that he was quite shocked that he was handed a five-game suspension, too.

* Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow told New England and Boston reporters that he admires Tom Brady, and certainly believes he can learn from him. Tebow was quoted for saying, “He’s been one of the best in the business and he’ll definitely go down as one of the best. My hat is off to him and his career and how great of a quarterback he’s been and good for him.”

* It’s been a few days since the Boston Celtics last played basketball, but on Wednesday, they’ll host the defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks, who have won four of their last five contests. The Celtics winning streak was snapped last week when the Indiana Pacers handed them an 87-74 victory.

* Despite an interesting 34 minutes, Harvard’s men’s basketball team somehow prevailed, as the Crimson defeated Monmouth, 70-61.
