🏈Patriots: Yesterday, the Tempe, Arizona police department honored Pats OT Justin Herron as a hero after he helped stop an attempted sexual assault over the weekend. Herron and another bystander intervened after a man attacked a 71-year-old woman in a park.

  • “All I could do was just rush myself over there to make sure I could help the victim and make sure I could comfort her and be the best person I can be,” Herron said. Patriot proud.

🏒Hockey: After two games were postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, the Bruins will return to the ice tonight, taking on the New York Islanders at 7 p.m. ET. Ironically, it’ll also be the Commonwealth’s first game with fans since March 2020, as the Garden is set to host a 12 percent capacity crowd, about 2,100 fans. Be like Tuukka, wear a mask.

  • Right before the playoffs were suspended in early February, the Pride had scored 13 (!!!) goals in two games to earn a spot in the semis. Here’s to picking up right where they left off.
