BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Celtics and Bruins will be able to open the TD Garden to a limited number of fans starting March 22. The Red Sox could play in front of more than 4,500 fans at Fenway Park on opening day. Gov. Charlie Baker announced that Massachusetts was moving to Phase IV of the coronavirus reopening plan, which will allow large indoor and outdoor arenas and ballparks to admit up to 12% of capacity. The Bruins were scheduled to play in front of fans for the first time on Friday night, when they will play the New York Rangers in Madison Square Garden in front of 10% capacity, or about 1,800 fans. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy says he would like that to happen all over.
