Happy Friday, everyone – we made it to the end of the work week!
Sure, it is cloudy outside our window, but luckily the snow (and slush) has disappeared. It’s going to be a rainy morning before it gets quite chilly this weekend, but next week should be a bit warmer – something to think about.
Anywho, have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and enjoy time with family and friends!
The Boston Sports Scoreboard
- The Boston Bruins will enjoy another off day before hosting the Phoenix Coyotes tomorrow afternoon at the TD Garden. Puck drop is scheduled for 3 p.m.
- The Boston Celtics return to the hardwood this evening to host the Atlanta Hawks at 7:30 p.m. Boston will not feature any new players in their line-up as they did not make a trade yesterday at the NBA Trade Deadline.
