About a week ago while watching Sportscentre, TSN’s Darren Dutchyshen disagreed with the NHL’s plan to have the Boston Bruins play the Ottawa Senators this evening. He recommended that the game be cancelled rather than rescheduled because of the traumatic events in Boston this month.
In the NBA, a game between the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers was cancelled, and the game would have had seeding implications if played. However the NBA thought it was in their best interest, just to cancel the game.
However, I am very pleased to see that the game between Ottawa and Boston is played tonight. The Bruins will win the Northeast Division with a win, and the Senators will move from eighth to seventh with a victory. Not to mention, but the game has huge implications for thousands of hockey pools across the globe.
