Bruins sign Hayes, Connolly to new deals
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins have signed right wings Jimmy Hayes and Brett Connolly to new contracts, the team announced Monday.

Hayes’€™ contract is a three-year deal with an average annual value of $2.3 million, while Connolly has agreed to a one-year contract with an AAV of $1.025 million.

With Hayes and Connolly signed, the Bruins have approximately ($66,410,667) committed to 20 players for next season.

While the Bruins owned both players’€™ rights as restricted free agents, both players will look to make a name for themselves in Boston next season after playing the bulk of their NHL careers elsewhere.

Connolly, acquired at the trade deadline from Tampa for a pair of second-round picks last season, played just five games for the Bruins after returning from a hand injury suffered in his first practice with the team. The 23-year-old had no goals, two assists and 10 penalty...

Former Celtics PF Bass to sign with Lakers

Former Celtic Brandon Bass will sign with the Lakers, the team announced Sunday.

The terms of the contract have not been revealed because they are dependent on other Lakers moves in free agency, specifically their reported trade with the Pacers for Roy Hibbert‘s $15.5 million expiring contract.

A 10-year NBA veteran, Brandon Bass posted 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds after playing all 82 games of the 2014-15 season. Bass also started all four Celtics playoff games.

He became expendable when the C’s agreed to a deal with free agent forward Amir Johnson. The...

Farm Report: Moncada continues hot streak
By: Ken Laird

A look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Sunday:

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (38-47): L, 4-1, at Syracuse (Nationals)

— LHP Henry Owens (Boston’s No. 2 prospect at MLB.com) had just one trouble inning, with less-than-perfect defense played behind him, but it was enough to saddle Owens with the loss and drop his record to 2-7 on the season while tarnishing his final line: 6 2/3 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 7 SO (102 pitches, 65 strikes).

In the third, a leadoff walk and double against Owens gave Syracuse a 1-0 lead. After a bunt single put two aboard, Owens induced back-to-back ground balls to third, the second of which probably could have been a double...

USA beats Japan to win Women's World Cup

In the 2011 Women’€™s World Cup final against Japan, the United States had a bunch of great chances early on but failed to take advantage of them. Those missed chances turned out to be costly, as the U.S. ended up losing that game on penalty kicks.

Four years later, the American women made sure they would have no such regrets. They scored four times in the game’€™s first 16 minutes and went on to beat Japan 5-2 to capture their third World Cup title and first since 1999.

Carli Lloyd was the star, as she scored three of the United States’€™ early goals to give her the first ever hat trick in a Women’€™s...
