-- The Red Sox closed out their championship tour of other Boston sports teams on Monday night, as the World Series winners were honored by the Bruins in a pregame ceremony.  

The only members of the organization in attendance were John Henry, Sam Kennedy and Joe Kelly.

The Bruins’ celebration for the Red Sox included a postseason highlight reel before they welcomed Henry, Kennedy, Kelly and the trophy, fresh off its trip to Puerto Rico, onto the ice.

And Kelly had the honor of performing the ceremonial puck drop.

The Red Sox brought the trophy to a Celtics game last Thursday and the Patriots game on Sunday and now the victory lap is complete.

-- Ludacris and Migos are among a group of Atlanta rappers set to perform at a pre-Super Bowl concert in January, it was announced on Monday.

Lil Yachty and Lil Baby, or “Ludacris and Friends,” will also perform at the EA Sports Bowl at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta ahead of the Big Game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Many were disappointed by the lack of musical artists from Atlanta performing in Super Bowl celebrations after Maroon 5 was picked to play the halftime show.

The EA Sports Show is part of the three-day Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest, which will run from Jan. 31 to Feb. 2.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “It is nice not to play at night, absolutely. The night games kill you. They get you the next day, and really it takes you a couple of days to get by them.” -- Bill Belichick, on the Patriots not having to play any more night games this season
