    Both the Boston Red Sox and the Bruins were scheduled to play games tonight in Boston, but those are postponed as the city is shut down amid a manhunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday.

    The manhunt comes just days after an emotional night at the TD Garden, where thousands of fans chimed in on the National Anthem before the Bruins vs. Sabers game.

    There was another powerful moment later as players from both teams gave the fans a salute with their hockey sticks.

    As a testament to the fans, the video on the scoreboard above center ice on that Wednesday night game said "We are Boston, We are Strong."

    It also comes days after the New York Yankees, and teams around the country, honored Boston by playing Neil Diamond's “Sweet Caroline,” a sort of Fenway Park anthem during Red Sox games.  

    Diamond responded to the Yankees by Tweeting words of thanks.
