All the big names are showing up at Tame the Tigers to support the Jimmy Fund, including comedian Lenny Clarke. Lenny covers everything under the sun with the boys including the Bruins, Sox and the current comedy landscape.
Who has the edge going into Game 7? No one, according to the Toronto Star's Damien Cox. He has it at a 50/50 split going into the final game of the series. Cox also says the opinion of Phil Kessel in the Leafs' dressing room is much higher than it has been in the media in recent years.
The Bruins had to stay over in Toronto an extra night, but CSNNE's Mike Giardi doesn't think it will make too much of a difference for Game 7. Things that will matter? The goalies as usual, and the Bergeron line getting going.

♦ Bulls coach Tom Thibodeauwas fined $35,000 by the NBA on Sunday, following his comments about the officiating after Friday night’s Game 3 loss to the Heat.
In the first half of the game, Bulls forward Nazr Mohammed was ejected after shoving LeBron James. The Bulls accused James of embellishing when he fell to the floor. Said Thibodeau: “I just saw a guy basically flop.” Thibodeau also said Chicago wasn’t “going to get calls” from the officials.
James insisted he wasn’t going to be rattled by the Bulls’ accusations.
“When you’re comfortable with who you are as a player and as a person, nothing really bothers you,” he said. “I don’t need to flop. I play an aggressive game. I don’t flop. I’ve never been one of those guys.”
Game 4 is Monday night in Chicago, where the shorthanded Bulls will attempt to even the series. Luol Deng, who is recovering after suffering complications from a spinal tap. is not expected to play, as he said he did not respond well to attempts to practice over the weekend after leaving the hospital. Kirk Hinrich and Derrick Rose are expected to remain on the sideline as well.
♦ Joba Chamberlain feuded with a Yankees teammate over the weekend — and no, it wasn’t Kevin Youkilis. Surprisingly, it was respected reliever Mariano Rivera.
Rivera was giving an interview in the dugout before Saturday night’s game in Kansas City — where, one year ago, he blew out his knee shagging fly balls and was lost for the season. Chamberlain, meanwhile, was standing next to the dugout and yelling to his family in the stands. After losing his train of thought, Rivera said to Chamberlain: “Joba! Yo! Bro! Shhh.”
Chamberlain responded that he was talking to his family, something he doesn’t do as often as Rivera speaks to the media. Later, Chamberlain warned Rivera in front of the press: “Don’t ever shush me again. … Seriously. Don’t ever shush me again. I don’t get to see my family very often.”
Yankees manager Joe Girardi said later that teammates shouldn’t disrespect each other. “When you look at situations that happen, if people could do things differently, sometimes they would do it differently,” he said.
However, Chamberlain, while admitting it was his fault, insisted it wasn’t a big deal and said: “I wouldn’t change it, I wouldn’t change anything I do in life.” He said there was no need to apologize, although he apparently did in private.
Rivera, on the other hand, apologized to reporters Sunday, saying: “These are not things that we need to bring in front of you guys or anybody. But it happened. … This is in-house and we keep it like that.”
♦ Former Lions wide receiver Titus Young, arrested twice in one day last Sunday, made it three times in a week when he was nabbed late Friday in San Clemente, Calif., for allegedly breaking into a home. Young also fought with deputies after a foot chase.
Young was charged with attempted burglary, assaulting a police office and resisting arrest.
The 23-year-old was drafted in 2011 but released in February after a decline in production and disputes with teammates.
