Boston Sports SWEEP The Day…Because It’s Boston And We’re KING

I wrote a similar article to this one in February. Boston sports are just amazing. I know it, you know it, and your mother’s brother knows it too. Well, Boston sports came in clutch again yesterday as they swept the day. Why did they sweep the day? Well, because it’s Boston; DUH! Let’s go through the day’s events in order from least significant to most significant, shall we?

Red Sox Sweep The Rays

This one was the least significant because there were no playoff implications. But, it still was significant nonetheless. The Red Sox have gotten off to a less than stellar start on the season. It also didn’t look any brighter when the Red Sox went down to Tropicana Field (HORRIBLE ballpark by the way!) to take on the 1st place Rays. The Red Sox surprised a lot of people by winning the first two games on Friday and Saturday. They went for the sweep on Sunday and well…

they got it. The Red Sox completed the sweep by winning 4-3 in extra innings. This game was dominated by David Price.

Don’t look now, but Price seems to be finding his groove earlier that we had all anticipated.

It was good to see the Red Sox sweep a series against a very good opponent. They now come home for a 10 game home-stand. They start with 4 against the Detroit Tigers, then play 3 against the Rays again and wrap up with a 3 game series against the Oakland Athletics. But for now, let’s be happy with the Red Sox playing better now than they did a few weeks ago.

Boston Sports On The Day: 1 for 1.

Celtics Sweep The Pacers

The second Boston team to complete a sweep yesterday was the Celtics. The Celtics came into yesterday up 3-0 in the series against the Indiana Pacers. They wasted no time to eliminate the Pacers as they came away with a 110-106 victory. Gordon Hayward led the way with 20 points. Marcus Morris and Jayson Tatum chipped in 18 points a piece as well. Kyrie Irving was relatively quiet as he finished with 14 points. The Celtics looked like the team we all thought they would be during the regular season, in this series. Their defense looked much better and a different guy stepped up each game. Hayward is looking like himself again and also thinks this is just the beginning for the Celtics.

If this Celtics team shows up in the 2nd round, the Bucks are in for a tough series. The Celtics played competitively with the Bucks all season and now is the time to see if this Celtics team is for real. Will they be the team we saw against Indiana? Or, will they go back to being the disappointment we saw during the regular season? Only time will tell. But for now, let’s be happy that the Celtics didn’t mess around and took care of the Pacers as quickly as they possibly could.

Boston Sports On The Day: 2 for 2.

The Bruins Forced A Game 7

This was the most significant game in the city of Boston yesterday. The Bruins found themselves in a win or go home situation. Things started off suspenseful as Morgan Reilly got the Maple Leafs out to a 1-0 lead early in the 1st period. Brad Marchand responded with a beautiful wrist shot off a Patrice Bergeron faceoff win to tie the game at 1 all.

Torey Krug added another goal late in the first period, on the power play to put the Bruins up 2-1.

The Bruins got a bit of insurance from Jake DeBrusk in the 2nd period as he tipped home a beautiful pass from David Krejci.

Auston Matthews made things interesting as he scored early in the 3rd period to trim the deficit to 1. As the game went along, the Maple Leafs had plenty of chances to tie the game; but couldn’t convert. Brad Marchand finally put the nail in the coffin for game 6 as he scored an empty net goal to ultimately give the Bruins the game 6 win.

Good for the Bruins for going on the road and playing a good enough game to force game 7. It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t pretty, but it got the job done. Also, shout out to Tuukka Rask for 22 saves on 24 shot opportunities. He was a big part of the Bruins game 6 win.

Boston Sports On The Day: 3 for 3.

In Conclusion

Another great day for Boston Sports fans! The Red Sox are slowly coming back into form. The Celtics await for the second round (against the Bucks) to get started. The Bruins now play a game 7 at the TD Garden to try and advance to the 2nd round for a date with the Columbus Blue Jackets. If you aren’t a Boston sports fan, I truly feel sorry for you. All of our teams are always in playoff contention and give us something to watch, even on holidays.

Let’s keep this going, Boston! Tuesday night for the Bruins will be a roller coaster ride, so hold on tight.
