For nearly 30 minutes Boston mayor Marty Walsh went back and forth with the Greg Hill Show regarding decisions that are being made involving the current pandemic.

For much of the interview both sides struck a contentious tone, with Mayor Walsh defending his stances when it comes to further limiting access to restaurants and gyms over the next three weeks.

But toward the conclusion of the debate came some news both sides could feel good about -- Walsh exhibiting some optimism when it comes to getting fans at TD Garden in the coming months.

"We've had some conversations," Walsh said when asked about the idea that the Bruins might play some game at Fenway Park. "The Bruins, I actually went over there the other day to take a tour of the Garden. They put some really great protocols in place for when we get fans back in the Garden. It's really amazing what they've done. I walked around. I was really impressed with it. I'm hoping we get fans back. Sports has been ...thank God for them. It's helped me a lot. Whether it's been football, or hockey or basketball playing. Baseball a little bit. I didn't watch much baseball this year. But basketball and hockey were pretty exciting to watch."

So, what is the timetable for a return for fans?

"They're trying to shoot for February or March," he said.
