It’s Marathon Monday, but all that seems to matter right now is the Boston Bruins as they try to repeat as Stanley Cup champions. They are tied with the Washington Capitals 1-1 in their opening round series, with Game 3 Monday night in DC.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox‘ bats have come alive against the Tampa Bay Rays. But they’ll have to keep that going without center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who is out at least six weeks with a shoulder injury. How much will Ellsbury’s absence hurt the offense?
