Brady and Patrick are back this week to take you through all the happenings of this week in and around the Boston sports landscape. We touch on the Bruins’ struggles and our worries with the team. Next, we get into the Celtics and how it’s the same old story all season; the Red Sox are struggling, but Xander Bogaerts has a new deal. We get into the Patriots already losing Greg Schiano, and there are new pass interference rules in the NFL. For national news, we hit on the Final Four, the Frozen Four, some BU Hockey news, the CWHL folding, and some news around golf and Tiger Woods.

0:00 The Bruins have sort of struggled lately, are we worried? The importance of health.

22:35 It’s the same old, same old with the Celtics. Will they get it together in the playoffs?

26:39 The Red Sox have not had a great start; are we worried? Thoughts on the batting order. Xander Bogaerts’ new contract and its implications . . . Mookie Betts.

42:23 Greg Schiano mysteriously stepped down from defensive coordinator for the Patriots before the season even started. New pass interference rules. We reflect on the coming and going of Rob Gronkowski.

51:24 We’re down to the Final Four and the Frozen Four – our thoughts.

58:14 The BU Men’s Hockey team is writing the latest chapter in the Book of Exodus.

1:01:20 The CWHL is folding. Why it’s bad for women’s hockey (duh) and what can happen.

1:05:05 Golf season is back! Sadly, Tiger blew it this weekend, but good news: Kevin Kisner won. We’re (Tiger’s) on to Augusta.
