B's game Wednesday will go on
The Boston Bruins game against the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday night is scheduled to be played, marking the first pro sports game in Boston since Monday’s bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
“The city informed us that there are no issues with playing,” Bruins president Cam Neely said on 98.5 The Sports Hub on Tuesday. “Obviously, there is going to be tight security in and around the building. We’re confident that we’re going to have the proper measures taken and security here. The city has informed us that they don’t see a need for us at this point to postpone another game.”
Face-off for the Bruins-Sabres game is 7:30 p.m. ET.
Meanwhile, the Bruins' postponed game against the Ottawa Senators, originally scheduled for Monday night, will now be played Sunday, April 28 at TD Garden (7 p.m.)
