Podcasts: Beantown Banter Ep. 22 – Potential everywhere!

Brady and Patrick are back this week to take you through a quiet week overall for Boston sports, aside from the Bruins. Apologies for the sketchy audio, but we’ll be back in our normal studio next week. We look at the David Pastrnak injury, the Bruins’ and Tuukka Rask’s hot streak, and the outlook on the Trade Deadline next Monday. We then look at the Celtics’ wins last week and upcoming schedule to go along with the activities at All-Star Weekend. Then, we get into some Red Sox and Patriots notes before finishing up with the Manny Machado signing and the NHL Trade Deadline. The next few weeks are FULL of potential.

22:45 The Celtics strung two wins together before the break without Kyrie. Is this team really better without him? Also a look at the events of All-Star Weekend
