Welcome to Friday, folks!

NHL All-Star Weekend is here, and while it’s not exactly the most riveting event on the sports calendar, it’s something to watch.

Sky has you covered with a Public Skate for all of tonight’s festivities, so come on back later today to share your takes.

Also on the calendar: the Winter Olympics, which got off to a bit of a rough start hockey-wise.

Former Bruin David Krejci tested positive for COVID-19 when he got to the Games, though there’s a report that it may end up being a false positive.

U.S. hockey star Brianna Decker will miss the rest of the games after suffering a gnarly leg injury in a win over Finland.

Elsewhere, Fluto Shinzawa noted in The Athletic that an NHL source told him that the Bruins’ need for a number-two center is “so obvious.”

That’ll help keep prices down at the deadline, at least!

Today’s discussion topic

Let’s argue about number-two centers! Claude Giroux might cost less. JT Miller might be a longer-term fix.

Who would you prefer?
