Following Friday's manhunt for the Boston marathon bombing suspect and the postponement of sporting events, the Red Sox will play the Kansas City Royals Saturday afternoon and the Boston Bruins will play the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Red Sox and Bruins were ready to return to action after a daylong, successful manhunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings brought the city, and major sports along with it, to a standstill.
The Bruins face the Pittsburgh Penguins, also on Saturday afternoon, in a meeting of two of the top four teams in the Eastern Conference. The game had been postponed from Friday night. The Penguins' scheduled home game against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night was rescheduled for Tuesday night.
Both the Red Sox and Bruins said on their websites that they expected their games on Saturday would be played.
