Podcasts: Beantown Banter Ep. 9: The injuries won’t stop for the Bruins

We are back this week with a spirited discussion from the friendly confines of Warren Towers, hence the lesser quality of the audio. Patrick runs through the laundry list of injuries for the Bruins and how the team has faired lately. We then discuss the continued inconsistency of the Celtics, look for reasons as to why, and preview the coming week. After, we get into what we can expect from the Patriots coming out of the bye week and some news around the NFL, and we wrap up Boston sports talk with some points on the Red Sox and Steve Pearce. We close out the show with some all over the place discussion on the Alex Smith and Caris LeVert injuries as well as other national and miscellaneous points.
