The Red Sox were scheduled to open their regular season against the Cleveland Indians at Cleveland on Monday, but the game was postponed due to frigid temperatures until Tuesday at 1:10 p.m. in Cleveland. The Red Sox come into the regular season with a 14-18 record from spring training and exhibition games and several new additions to the team including left- handed pitcher David Price, who the Red Sox acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays. The 2016 season will also celebrate Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz’s final season before he retires from baseball. The Red Sox enter the regular season ranked third in the American League East behind the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays. After the season opener on Tuesday, the Red Sox will face the Cleveland Indians in Cleveland again on Wednesday at 6:10 p.m. and on Thursday at 6:10 p.m.
Boston Bruins (NHL)
Despite coming off a narrow 6-5 win against the St. Louis Blues on Friday, the Bruins lost to the Chicago Blackhawks 4-6 on Sunday. The Bruins nearly returned in the second from an early deficit, but Chicago’s defense fought hard to hold off the Bruins. Leading the Bruins in scoring was center Patrice Bergeron who scored two goals and had one assist. Sunday’s loss gives the Bruins a 41-30-8 season record making them fourth in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference and ninth overall in the Eastern Conference. With the regular season drawing to a close, the Bruins must win the rest of their games in order to have a chance at making the playoffs. The Bruins will play the Carolina Hurricanes at TD Garden on Thursday at 9 p.m.
Boston Celtics (NBA)
On Friday, the Celtics managed to accomplish the once impossible task of defeating the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena in San Francisco. The Warriors had been undefeated at home this season until the Celtics won 109-106. Following their win on Friday, the Celtics played the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Sunday in Los Angeles where they defeated the Lakers 107-100. Like he has done all season, Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas led the team in scoring. Thomas scored 26 points and had six assists throughout the game. The Celtics are ranked second in the Eastern Atlantic Conference behind the Toronto Raptors and have clinched a spot in the NBA playoffs. The Celtics will play again on Wednesday at TD Garden where they will face the New Orleans Pelicans at 7:30 p.m.
New England Revolution (MLS)
The Revolution increased their MLS standing to fourth overall on Friday when they defeated the New York Red Bulls 1-0 at Gillette Stadium. Though Revolution fans are thrilled about the Revolution’s first win of the season, this win did not come without a bit of controversy: Revolution standout midfielder Diego Fagundez kicked a goal in the 55th minute, but several New York players were slow to stop the goal because New York defender Kemar Lawrence had fallen on the ground due to an injury. The referee did not stop the game due to Lawrence’s injury and Fagundez’s goal counted as the only goal scored. The Revolution will play Toronto FC on Saturday, April 9 at 4 p.m. at Gillette Stadium.
