It’s no surprise, then, that the Bruins wasted no time in congratulating David Ortiz on his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

*Speaking of the Flyers, what will Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher say today as his hockey team is in the midst of a franchise-worst 13-game losing streak? Is there anything to say? (Philly Hockey now)

* What a sneaky play by Buffalo Sabers backup goaltender Aaron Dell, who knocked out the Ottawa Senators’ best player, Drake Batherson, as he spun at high speed behind the net. Now Batherson is out with a long-term ankle injury and the Senators will be without their All-Star caliber player. Good to hear that Dell is going to face some extra discipline because it’s not the first time it’s done something like this. Just a dirty game from a goaltender who will never have to answer for his actions on the ice.
