Looking ahead, there will be a few busy nights for Boston sports fans who are looking to keep an eye on their local teams. Monday night will feature Game 1 of the Celtics-Sixers, as well as Game 4 of Bruins-Hurricanes, as well as the final contest of a four-game set in New York between the Red Sox and Yankees.

The Bruins and Celtics could also be in action on Aug. 19, with Game 2 of Boston-Philadelphia and a possible Game 5 between Boston and Carolina. In addition, the Red Sox host the Phillies that night at Fenway as well.
