While the manhunt for the second suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in the Boston Marathon bombings continues, the city of Boston and surrounding areas remain on lock down. Because of the lock down, the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins have decided to postpone their games, which were scheduled for Friday night.
According to the Associated Press:
BREAKING: Boston Bruins and Red Sox games scheduled for Friday night postponed because of manhunt.

It is the right move and one that had to be made.
At a time like this, everyone in the area needs to do what they can to be safe and stay out of danger. For fans to gather in one highly populated area for something as trivial as a sporting event in a time like this would be a major mistake.
Kudos to the Red Sox and Bruins for making the right call.
Early on Friday morning, Tsarnaev’s older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was shot and killed by police officers during a chase. Dzhokhar remains at large.
