Happy Wednesday, everyone – hope you’re in a good mood like we are here at Noontime Sports!
Sure, it is a chilly day outside here in Boston, but the good news is a semi heatwave is on the way, which means we are another day closer to spring and no more snow – woo!
In the meantime, let’s get you caught up on some news for the day, as well as what happened last night in Boston sports.
As usual, have a great day, smile, be nice and plan something fun for later or this weekend!
The Boston Sports Scoreboard
- The Boston Bruins picked-up their 29th win last night by edging the Vegas Golden Knights by a score of 3-2. With the win, the Black and Gold have won two of their last three and three of their last six outings. Boston will be off until next Friday, January 31st due to the National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star Game this upcoming weekend.
- The Boston Celtics return to the hardwood this evening when they host the Memphis Grizzlies with tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The Celtics scored an exciting win on Monday, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers which should provide the Green and White with some serious momentum going forward.
