Red Sox, Bruins postpone games

The Red Sox and Bruins postponed their games from last night.

The Bruins game with the Penguins has been tentatively rescheduled for tonight at 7:30 p.m. while the Red Sox are schedule to play at 1 p.m. today.

With Boston in lockdown last night, the status of those games is still tentative.

The Celtics opening round playoff game with the New York Knicks, at Madison Square Garden, will be played at 3 p.m. today on ABC (Ch. 5). The Knicks are expected to have a short ceremony before the game in honor of the victims from the Boston Marathon explosions.

Bills receiver sorry about Tweet

Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson tried to be funny earlier this month in a Twitter post when he asked North Korea to bomb Foxborough, Mass., home of the New England Patriots.

Johnson was roundly criticized immediately following the tweet. Then on Monday, his tweet became even more controversial after the Boston Marathon explosions and killing of the three spectators and the estimated 170 people that were injured.

He apologized earlier this week.

“No Twitter, no games, no jokes, none of that. But at the end of the day, I feel just how everybody else felt when they see those bombs go off.”

Cannons scrimmage still on tonight

The Boston Cannons are expected to complete their final weekend of training came with a scrimmage with the CroART Lacrosse All-Stars at Harvard Stadium tonight at 6 p.m.

The scrimmage is free to the public and will be used to raise money for The One Fund, to support the victims of the Boston Marathon explosions.

The Cannons are one of the favorites to win the Major League Lacrosse championship this year.

Former Masconomet Regional star, Craig Bunker, an All-American at Colby College, made the Cannons final 25-man roster and will be one of the faceoff guys in the scrimmage tonight.
