Saturday Links from Len

Here’s a very abbreviated version of Saturday links. There will be much more tomorrow.

The Celtics beat the Nets JV team at the Fleet Center last night. Steve Bulpett and Shira Springer have game stories. The win moved the Celtics into the eighth and last playoff slot in the East as the season winds down. Mark Murphy tells us about Brandon Hunter who has been the invisible man in Boston.

The big local story these days is the Bruins. The Canadiens are in town and Michael Holley is ready. Stephen Harris has a look at how the B’s will try to neutralize the speed of the Habs. Is there anyone else out there who sees the irony in many Boston fans claiming they don’t want to get on the Bruins bandwagon because they don’t want to be let down again? The irony is that most of these people are Red Sox fans. Maybe there is some law out there saying that only one local team can break your heart. The teams in the East are very even. The Bruins could lose in the first round. But this team also has the talent to take it to another level. Have fun with this.

It’s a big day of sports today. CBS-4 has NCAA Regional Finals with UConn-Alabama at 4:40 pm followed by Oklahoma St-Saint Josephs at 7:05 pm. NESN has preseason baseball with Phillies-Sox at 1 pm. NESN has the Canadiens at Bruins game at pm. If you prefer NCAA Hockey, Ch 56 has BC-Niagra at noon. NESN has Michigan-UNH at 4 pm. Get your remotes ready.
