Happy Friday, everyone!

Hope you are ALL having a great day thus far – yes, we know we’re posting a bit later than normal, but we wanted to make sure we provided you with something to read at the end of your lunch break or when you’re bored in the afternoon (and want to go home!).

As usual, have a wonderful rest of your day, smile, laugh, be happy, and have a great weekend!


The Boston Sports Scoreboard

  • The Boston Bruins return to the ice this evening when they visit the Calgary Flames for a 9 p.m. face-off. Boston is still the top team in the Eastern Conference with 88 points – can they make it to 90 this evening?
  • The Boston Celtics kick-off the second half of their 2019-20 season this evening, when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves at 8 p.m. Boston, is currently the third-best team in the Eastern Conference – they are behind the Milwaukee Bucks (first) and Toronto Raptors (second).
