Make Way For Ducklings Sculptures Missing 1 Patriots Jersey

BOSTON (CBS) – A new scandal began brewing on Saturday in Patriots Nation. Well, sort of.

It appears someone has gone afowl of the famous “Make Way for Ducklings” statues at the Public Garden.

On Friday, all of the ducklings were decked out in New England Patriots gear, ahead of Sunday’s AFC Championship.

But on Saturday, the mother duck was missing her shirt and hat.

Luckily, her ducklings still have their Patriots jerseys.

So far, there is no word on where the mother duck’s gear might have gone.

The famous “Make Way for Ducklings” statues turned 30 years old last year.

The sculpture representing the characters in Robert McCloskey’s classic children’s book were made by Nancy Schon of Newton in 1987.

Pastrnak Has 2 Goals, Bruins Top Habs For 3rd Time In 8 Days

MONTREAL (AP) — David Pastrnak scored twice and set up another goal to help the Boston Bruins beat Montreal 4-1 on Saturday night, their third win in eight days against the Canadiens.

Torey Krug had a goal and two assists and Riley Nash added an empty-netter for Boston, which is 12-0-4 in its past 16 games.

Max Pacioretty scored for Montreal, which ended a stretch of five games in eight days since their midseason break at 1-2-2. The Canadiens were coming off a 3-1 win Friday night in Washington.

Pacioretty got his seventh goal in seven games 11:29 into the second period. Paul Byron lost the puck, stripped it back from Charlie McAvoy from behind and then slipped a backhand pass to Pacioretty on a 2-on-1.

Pastrnak beat goalie Carey Price with a quick shot along the ice that caught the goaltender’s left skate and went in at 14:09.

Krug was allowed to walk in from the blue line, take a feed from Pastrnak and beat Price over the right shoulder at 15:56.

The Bruins looked to have another goal on a power play at 11:00 of the third period, but a video review showed the play was offside.

Pastrnak got one that counted, his 20th of the season, at 17:03 when Jordie Benn couldn’t handle a puck in front of Price and the Czech forward swept in to put it in the net.

NOTES: The Bruins won in a shootout last Saturday in Montreal before winning 4-1 at home on Wednesday against their longtime rivals. … A moment of silence was held before the game for sports writer Red Fisher, who covered the Canadiens from 1955 to 2012. Fisher died Friday at 91.

While out playing with her owner, Niko ran to catch a ball on the Charles River near the Eliot Bridge, just before 4 p.m. Saturday.

Then, the energetic dog fell through ice.

A video that captured the rescue shows firefighters using a rope to safely pull Niko, laying on the board, to land.

State Police also responded to the scene, and gave Niko and her unidentified owner a ride to their van.

Niko appeared to be fine, and headed to the veterinarian for a checkup after the incident.

Armed Forces Network Won’t Show NFL Playoffs Due To Government Shutdown

BOSTON (CBS) – The government shutdown may prevent thousands of American soldiers overseas from watching the AFC and NFC Championship games on Sunday.

The AFN, or American Forces Network, posted a message on its TV network saying it was going dark due to the shutdown.

That’s really bad timing for soldiers, according to Wilmington veterans agent Lou Cimaglia.

Cimaglia served in Desert Storm back in 1991 and remembers how crucial it was to be able to enjoy a big football game while far away from home.

“And if you get down time, and you get to watch a live event such as an NFC, AFC playoff game, it’s huge,” he said. “It may be two or three in the morning their time. I remember watching the Super Bowl in 1991 when I was over in Kuwait. So yeah, it’s huge.”

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy tweeted that the NFL “is working on alternatives for service members, in the event Armed Forces Network is not operational before the start of tomorrow’s championship games.”

Cimaglia is hoping something can be done to get those games to the troops, giving them a taste of home.

“Getting all their news, information and everything on one network if you will. If that goes down, it could, it would seriously affect morale,” he said.
