NBC Sports NHL analyst Pierre McGuire made his weekly appearance Thursday on Middays with MFB in advance of Thursday night’s Bruins matchup against the Islanders.

Here are the highlights from Thursday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– A nun who won the Italian version of “The Voice” released her debut album, and it includes a remake of Madonna’s 1984 hit “Like a Virgin.”

Sister Cristina Scuccia, a 26-year-old from Sicily, has received some criticism from the Catholic media, although she claims she interpreted it as “a song about the ability of love to renew people, to redeem them from their past.”

“Out of all the songs, would this be the one?” Fauria wondered, adding: “So, run out and buy that and see if your priest thinks it’s OK.”

– On the heels of his memorable prank phone call to a Buffalo radio station last week, Fauria tried calling a Chicago station for Part 2 of “Christian from Foxboro.” Unlike last week, when he appeared on air for about 10 minutes (over two segments), this time Fauria was not as well-received, as he was cut off after complaining that he was on hold for too long and that the hosts were putting him to sleep.

Two more attempts to get back on the air ended in failure.

“So when you said [they] were putting [you] to sleep, they wanted to hang up because they didn’t want their listeners to think that they were really putting people to sleep?” Merloni asked.

“A little sensitive,” Benz noted.

“They did not want to play around,” Fauria said.

Added Benz: “When you first called the station did you notice that you sounded like a bizarre combination of Danny Picard and ‘Lou from Chicago.’ It’s amazing how you hybrid yourself like that.”

Said Fauria: “I can’t help it.”

Jarret Payton, son of NFL legend Walter Payton, joins MFB to breakdown the troubles in the Bears locker room, the team's struggles at home, and the upcoming match up against the Patriots.
Jackie MacMullan joins MFB for the first time this season. She discusses the rejection of NBA lottery reform, Rajon Rondo, and the Celtics chances this season.
Will this incident affect the Patriots chances of signing Revis in the off-season.

After spending his first 15 seasons in the NBA with the Celtics, Paul Pierce will now be playing for his second team in as many years.

When the Nets didn’t re-sign him this past offseason, Pierce signed with the Washington Wizards. Planning on re-signing with the Nets, things started to go the other direction when coach Jason Kidd took the same job with the Milwaukee Bucks.

“I definitely didn’t see all that coming,” Pierce told reporters following a morning shootaround at the Garden before a preseason game with the Knicks on Wednesday, per the NY Daily News. “I think it all started probably with Jason leaving, it’s kind of like a domino from there. I was a little disappointed, because I thought I was going to come back there and Jason was one of the main reasons I came to Brooklyn, him and Kevin [Garnett].”

Pierce, 37, said he didn’t see any of this coming.

“It just happened so fast,” Pierce said. “I had a chance to talk to [Kidd] and he has his reasons, the way things went down. But like I said, the business ‘€” you’ve got to understand the business aspect of it. He moved on. The Nets moved on and people went their different directions. You see that a lot in this business.”

“I understand it’s a business,” he added. “I was a little surprised, but you’ve got to be ready for the business side of it and understand that part. So it didn’t shock me. No hard feelings, I understand their situation, they understand mine, and both parties moved on.”

Former Ravens running back Ray Rice will be appealing his indefinite suspension from the NFL, and according to an Associated Press report, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will be forced to testify.

The Commissioner was unsure he would actually testify, saying he would leave the decision to Judge Jones.

“We will continue to respect Judge Jones’ confidentiality order regarding this proceeding,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in an email to the AP.

NFL lawyers have argued Goodell shouldn’t have to testify and instead there should be testimony from Jeff Pash, the NFL’s general counsel, and Adolpho Birch, the NFL’s vice president for labor policy — both of whom were present when Rice met with Goodell to hear his side of the story from Rice’s incident when he hit his then-fiancee in an elevator.

Goodell originally suspended the running back for two games, but then after the video was released publicly the suspension was then made indefinite. Goodell has said Rice’s description was “ambiguous,” while Rice’s side has said he gave exact details.

The AP also says the hearing will be held Nov. 5 and 6.
