Kyle Draper has the headlines and highlights for Wednesday, May 8, 2013 on CSNNE.com's SportsNet Central Update.

The Bruins weren't in action on Tuesday, but fresh off their 5-2 win on Monday, they are preparing to go up 3-1 in the series with another win Wednesday night. The B's top line of David Krejci, Nathan Horton, and Milan Lucic have been one of the most dominating lines of the playoffs so far, and with them on point, it'll be tough to beat them.

The Red Sox played the second game of their series against the Twins, but the bats - or gloves - didn't show up. Boston loses, 6-1. That's not all they lost though. Both Will Middlebrooks and David Ross left the game after colliding in foul ground territory. The Sox are hopeful that the injuries are minor and DL stints will be avoided. A DL stint wasn't avoided for Sox closer Joel Hanrahan on Tuesday, as a right forearm strain will sideline him for a while.
