BSJ Weekend Briefing 02.18.21: Bruins falls to Devils, head to Tahoe; Celtics will play 2; Wentz and Pats

Good morning!

Your daily rundown of what's going on with the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins and Revolution, and what's about to happen...

  • Tough for the B's last night. They're in a weird spot right now. Butch doesn't seem real happy.
  • Celtics play tonight and Sunday. Can they get it turned around here?
  • Patriots weren't really in on Wentz. I wouldn't read too much into the compensation. It was a one-horse race.
  • Have a great weekend everyone. Have to run out. Things will be more back to normal next week.
  • We are working on the pop-up ad issue. It's an error.
