Red Sox move up game start to avoid Stanley Cup conflict

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox will move up the start of Wednesday’s game against the Texas Rangers by more than three hours to 4:05 p.m. to minimize the conflict with Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The team said it was a courtesy for fans who also wanted to watch the Bruins will play the St. Louis Blues in the deciding game of the NHL championship series at 8:10 p.m.

The Texas-Boston game was supposed to begin at 7:10 p.m. The Red Sox also moved up their May 29 game by an hour to minimize the conflict with Game 2 of the Cup final.
