Yesterday Charlie Baker, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, announced the commencement of Phase 2 or “Cautious” phase of reopening the state amid the coronavirus outbreak. About a week or so ago, the catchphrase went from “Stay at Home” to “Safer at Home”. With Phase 2, retail shopping with some limitations, outdoor dining with social distancing, and more outdoor activities are available to the public. So that’s great.
Phase 2 in Mass also coincides with Phase 2 of the NHL in which small groups of no more 6 players can participate in organized practices. We know the ice is down at Warrior. However, we have no idea of the Bruins have started these practices since the press are not allowed to attend. And the players aren’t talking about it either.
Most of the Bruins players are not super posty on the socials. From what I can tell, Brandon Carlo may still be back in Colorado enjoying the lake and…that’s about it. Mum’s the word.
So, hopefully some players can get back to training and skating and such. Until they talk about it publicly, we’ll never know if they’re doing it.
