The Boston Bruins didn’t play yesterday (thankfully) but they did practice to get ready for tonight’s tilt at the Garden against the Washington Capitals. Yesterday the organization announced a whole bunch of schedule changes to make up for games that either were missed due to the Covid Holiday Special or games that had to be moved around due to Canadian provincial attendance rules. Since the players will not be going to the Olympics they have plenty of time to make up these games.

Ty Anderson has a breakdown of the rescheduling if you want to take a look.
Down in Washington, The US House of Representatives did a thing that we can all be happy about: the voted to award Willie O’Ree the Congressional Gold Medal.
Another historic honor for Willie O’Ree!
Congratulations to Willie for being awarded the U.S. Congressional Gold Medal, recognizing his trailblazing impact across hockey and society.
