Saturday is another big day on the Boston sports scene — and another one that will require you stay up late.
The Boston Bruins will play the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 5 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, and NESN has you covered before and after the big game. The Bruins lead the series 3-1 and have a change to put the Leafs away once and for all at TD Garden.
The scorching-hot Boston Red Sox, meanwhile, will play the Oakland Athletics in Game 2 of their three-game series, and you can watch every pitch on NESN. Left-hander Chris Sale will toe the rubber for the Sox, who look to extend their MLB-best record to 18-2.
Bruins-Leafs pregame programming will air on NESN, while postgame coverage will air on NESNplus. Full Red Sox-A’s coverage can be seen on NESN.
