Red Sox, Bruins Games Postponed Due To Manhunt For Bombings Suspect
BOSTON (CBS) — With the ongoing manhunt for the remaining Boston bombing suspect in the city and surrounding area, the Bruins’ and Red Sox’ games scheduled for Friday night in the city have been postponed.
The Red Sox made the official announcement without giving any make-up date on Friday afternoon around 3 p.m. Minutes later, the Boston Police Department announced via Twitter that the Bruins would be postponed as well.
The NHL announced that the Bruins-Penguins game is tentatively scheduled for Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in Boston, though that obviously depends on the ongoing situation in the area. An official decision on when the game will be played will be made no later than 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.
The Penguins had been scheduled to host the Sabres on Saturday night, but that Penguins-Sabres game has been moved to Tuesday.
Earlier on Friday, the Bruins and Penguins both canceled their morning skate at the TD Garden, and the Bruins’ official Twitter account said further updates would be provided “when appropriate.”
The Bruins were also supposed to begin selling playoff tickets at 11 a.m. on Friday, but that sale has been postponed until Monday due to the events.
The Penguins and the Royals, the respective opponents of the Bruins and Red Sox, are both in the city.
The Bruins already postponed one game this week on Monday, the day of the marathon bombings.
More information on the manhunt can be found on CBS Boston.
