BOSTON – March went out and April’s moved in. The Boston Marathon is in the books. Last night, Boston’s two winter sports teams each played important playoff games that could determine their future and worthiness to play well into the Spring. You must be wondering how they did, right?
As we cover sports, we do so to allow fans a comfortable place to gather and enjoy their favorite teams from Boston. Fans seeking the basics, the scores, tonight’s game schedule, game time, tv coverage, and maybe some important facts and insights into the game.
In doing so, we avoid politics and any polarizing topics in the news.
Today might be an exception as we are covering last night’s two winter sports playoff games William Barr style.
With that in mind, here now, the news:
TORONTO – The Boston Bruins REDACTED the Toronto Maple Leafs last night by a score of REDACTED to REDACTED.Bruins forward David Pastrnak REDACTED twice and Brad Marchand added a REDACTED. The NHL Playoff series is now REDACTED and the pivotal Game 5 will be played in Boston on REDACTED.
Charlie McAvoy had a REDACTED and an assist, while veteran Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and their Swedish left-winger Joakim Nordstrom each REDACTED once for the Bruins.
Auston Matthews scored twice for REDACTED, and Zach Hyman and Travis Dermott each REDACTED once. Morgan Rielly REDACTED two REDACTED for Toronto.
Tuukka Rask made 38 REDACTED for Boston
Toronto’s goalkeeper REDACTED stopped REDACTED.
Over at the Garden, the story today reads:
BOSTON – With 50.8 seconds remaining, REDACTED hit a crucial REDACTED to allow his Boston Celtics to REDACTED and hold-off the Indiana Pacers by the score of REDACTED.
Indiana blew a REDACTED-point, fourth-quarter lead. However, the Pacers appeared primed to REDACTED this series when Wesley Matthews and Bojan Bogdanovic REDACTED for three 3-pointers in a REDACTED-second spurt, allowing Indiana to retake a REDACTED-to-REDACTED advantage with 2:16 to go.
From that 2:16 mark, the REDACTED didn’t REDACTED again.
“REDACTED,” said Coach REDACTED. “It was the most amazing thing I’d ever witnessed, especially when REDACTED.”

Is that the way you like your sports reporting?
While you can speculate or take the word of someone else – maybe on Twitter – who might’ve watched the game, you can’t rely on a trusted media outlet for the most important details of the two games involving your two teams.
Maybe there’s some game highlights, but they only cover the most acrobatic or athletics plays. They don’t show you the intricate details of how the games were played.
It can be explained in other areas, too.
Do you want to go to the movies? What’s your favorite?
Godfather? Godfather II? Casablanca?
You’ll only see the trailers.
Would you like to read your Bible?
Nope, you don’t get the whole book. How about one four-page letter by Saint Paul to the people of Corinth?
People like to complain and shout about “FAKE NEWS!” Well, how about NO NEWS?
That’s the way we’re headed.
