Daily Noontime: Wednesday, March 4th, 2020

DNMar4th2020

It’s Wednesday, which means we’re going to work extra hard today (and tomorrow) for the weekend, right?

It is a WINDY day outside today, so make sure to hang onto your hat (and maybe your glasses, too). And make sure to look both ways before crossing the street, as well.

Alright, enough about the weather (and crossing streets). Let’s get into the Daily Noontime!

  • The Boston Bruins picked-up an important 2-1 win last night against the Tampa Bay Lightning. With the win, the Black and Gold improve to 42-13-12 overall – they also picked up two more points to bump their season total to 96 (wow!).
  • Boston will attempt to gain an additional two points tomorrow, Thursday, March 5th when they visit the Florida Panthers for a 7 p.m. face-off.
  • With their win last night over the Lightning, it appears as if the Bruins have the Atlantic Division locked up. Boston and Tampa Bay will meet again on Saturday, March 7th – it will be another game to watch, of course – and could see each other in the postseason.
  • The Brooklyn Nets scored 51 points in the fourth quarter and then outscored the Boston Celtics, 11-2, in overtime to secure a 129-20 win last night on Causeway Street. Jaylen Brown led the Green and White with 22 points while Kemba Walker chipped in 21 points.
  • Boston will be fine – don’t worry, Celtics fans! – but they will need everyone on their roster to feel better and get healthier as they head into the final weeks of the regular season. And one of those players is Jayson Tatum, who was sidelined last night with an illness.
  • A 15-pitch bullpen session on Sunday has resulted in Chris Sale sitting on the bench and waiting for Dr. James Andrews to review his MRI. Hopefully, we receive some positive news later today or this week about the Boston Red Sox pitcher, who was forced to end his season last summer with an elbow issue. Perhaps the Sox will need to acquire some free-agent pitchers to bolster its rotation?
  • The Lowell High School boy’s basketball team extended captured its 23-straight contest this season with a hard-fought win over Cambridge on Tuesday evening in the MIAA D1 North semifinals at Woburn High School. Jaceb McKenzie and Carlos Nunez scored 16 points, respectively, for the Red Raiders, who will now face Lynn English in Saturday’s D1 North Finals at the Tsongas Center.
  • Tufts University men’s lacrosse netted 25 goals for the ninth time in program history last night as the Jumbos rolled past Springfield College in a non-conference clash. Tufts, which improved to 2-0, received seven points from Mac Bredahl while Mason Pollack turned aside five shots.
  • Brandon Pavoni netted five goals while setting up three more tallies as the Anna Maria College men’s lacrosse team outlasted Nichols College on Tuesday for their second win of the 2020 season.
