FRIDAY’S BROADCAST HIGHLIGHTS:
NBA: Boston at Minnesota, 8 p.m. (NBCSB)
NHL: Boston at Calgary, 9 p.m. (NESN)

AROUND THE WEB: 

-- Antonio Brown was working out on Instagram Live on Wednesday, as he usually is, and was cracked in the head with part of his exercise equipment. 

And he mocked himself for the incident, saying the machine “hit harder than Vontaze Burfict.”

And it's good to see this isn't going to affect his rap career and lyric-writing abilities at all. 

-- Rob Gronkowski and Camille Kostek celebrated Kostek’s 28th birthday in New York this week and Kostek posted a heartfelt message to Gronkowski on Instagram. 

28 already feels so joyful, full of love and GREAT -- Grateful to celebrate heading into another year on earth to learn, grow, dance, travel, connect to more people, work, spread kindness and cheer, to meet new people, try new things, and get closer to the people I love ❤️ Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who took the time to send love my way making my birthday feel extra special. I see you, I feel the love and I am beyond grateful for all of you in my life ✨

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "He was amazing at picking up things the right way. These guys here, the guys that we have, they’re so good at every little thing. Any little hiccup they’ll find it. But you can put me on any detector you want, I’ll volunteer it. That never happened here." -- J.D. Martinez, on Alex Cora and MLB’s investigation of the Red Sox in the sign-stealing scandal
