MIAMI GARDENS, Fla.

  FOXBORO -- There's been a lot of talk this week about the great "unknown" of Week 1 in the NFL.

Inexcusable. That's the only way to characterize the effort put forth by the Bruins in the most important game of their season.
Mike Petraglia
05/13/2014 - 9:23pm
The message doesn't need to be spoken. It needs to be delivered. They need to beat their hated rivals in Game 7 or their 54-win, 117-point Presidents' Trophy season will have been a failure and a colossal waste.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Jake Peavy firmly believes he still has a lot of good pitches left in his right arm. That's a funny thing to say about a pitcher who is still in his prime, albeit perhaps past his physical peak.
Mike Petraglia
02/25/2014 - 4:30pm
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Don't worry about Jackie Bradley Jr.

There was never a kindler, gentler or more loyal man than Dick Kelley. At least, none I have ever met in my 21 years of covering Boston sports. The man was pure gold to me.
Mike Petraglia
02/10/2014 - 2:46pm
Enough with the games. Danny Ainge, the man charged with presiding over the most successful franchise in Boston sports, will be busy listening to offers for valuable pieces on his roster over the next week, leading up to the NBA trade deadline of Feb. 20.

NEW YORK -- Just think of it -- Richard Sherman talking everyone up in Foxboro. It's just what the Patriots need. The perfect blend of swagger, confidence and skill in the secondary.
