Slap Shots: Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics

By Zach Baru

Get ready, TD Garden, March Madness is right around the corner (East Regional, March 22-24).

A Green Monster in spring training?  How can you not like Jet Blue Park, the new Red Sox facility in Fort Myers.

It’s not a new Nickerson Field, but it’s New Balance Field.  The name of the 2013 facility that will give BU athletics an alternative to Nickerson.

Number of the week: 5,093 (UMass-Lowell hockey attendance February 10 vs. Merrimack).

Watching the Bruins on NBC Sports Network only reminds me of how much better NESN broadcasts are.

Welcome back to New England, American Hockey League All-Star Game, January 28 in Providence.

Arena football season is approaching, but until the AFL finds ownership in Boston, this major market will continue to be without a franchise.

What to watch for this summer: A possible exhibition match between Liverpool and AS Roma at Fenway.

It's getting a little embarrassing how many suites are left vacant at each Bruins home game.

As the NBA trade deadline nears, what direction will Danny Ainge decide to go with this team?

In tribute to Garry Brown.
