Boston: The first cut is the deepest

🏒College hockey: No. 1 Northeastern women’s hockey won their fourth (!!!) consecutive Hockey East title with a dominant 6–2 victory over No. 9 Providence on Saturday. Did someone say dynasty?

🏒Bruins: After netting five goals in their big win over the Washington Capitals on Friday, the B’s couldn’t find the back of the net yesterday, losing 1–0 in a snoozefest against the New Jersey Devils. Womp womp.

  • Speaking of the Caps, the NHL did the right thing (for once) and suspended Tom Wilson for seven games following his dirty hit on the B’s Brandon Carlo. Luckily, Carlo is “feeling better” but his return date is still TBD.
  • The Bruins will return to the ice tomorrow for a 7 p.m. ET tilt with the New York Islanders, the current East Division leaders. Queue up some Big Sean, because it’s time to bounce back.

⚾️Red Sox: They say the first cut is the deepest, but this one still stings. After his fellow outfielder (and dance partner) Andrew Benintendi was traded to the Kansas City Royals last month, Jackie Bradley Jr. is also on his way out, signing with the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday. We’ll miss you, JBJ!
