Midday Recap 4/16: Boston, New York and New Jersey

This is how the Boston Marathon was supposed to end.  Instead, tears of joy turned into tears of sadness as two bombs exploded two blocks apart on Bolyston Avenue in Boston.  3 are dead, over a hundred injured, and questions as to why this happened still exist.  And we may not know the reason why for days and weeks to come.

Life in Boston will not be the same after this tragic event.

Our heartfelt sorrow and prayers goes out to the victims, as well as our heartfelt thanks to the countless emergency personnel who worked through the afternoon and into the night to ensure the safety of Bostonians.

Snowed Again
The Mets were snowed out in Denver.  Makeup is this afternoon, when the Mets will play two in Colorado, first at 3:10PM and again at 8:40PM.  They have not played since Saturday late afternoon, when they beat the Minnesota Twins on Matt Harvey's stellar performance.  The Mets will still send Dillon Gee out in the early game, and Aaron Laffey in the nightcap.

Deviled Ham
The New Jersey Devils playoff chances took a bad turn as they fell to the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0 last night.  With 6 games left in the regular season, the Devils sit in 11th, 6 points behind the Rangers for the last playoff spot.  Sunday's game against the Rangers could become a must-win for the Devils, dependent on how they handle the Flyers and Panthers this week.  The Flyers are coming out of a 7-3 win against the Montreal Canadiens on the road, aided by Hartnell's hat trick.

NBA Doubleheader
Two games on the NBA schedule today after the cancellation of the Boston/Indiana game (and with both teams cemented in the playoffs, they're not going to make it up).  Atlanta has not secured the 5-seed, and will fall into a tie with the Chicago Bulls with a loss.  The late game has the Los Angeles Clippers hosting the Portland Trailblazers.  The Clippers look to be locked into the 4-seed as Pacific Division champs, while the Trailblazers are on a 11-game losing skid.
