The Bruins needed a third-period comeback to force overtime in what could have very will been an easy victory. That was the highlight of the night, as they then lost to the Flames in the eighth round of a shootout.
Patrice Bergeron scored the shootout’s first goal when he beat Karri Ramo in the seventh round, but Calgary scored in the seventh and eighth rounds to win the battle of eighth-place teams.
The Flames had no business being in the game, but through penalties and mistakes the B’s gave a third-period lead to a team they’d mostly dominated on the night.
Here are five things we learned on a frustrating night for the B’s:
JULIEN GOES BACK TO...
The Celtics backcourt just became a little less crowded.
The team announced on Twitter, prior to their trip to New Orleans Thursday, that Avery Bradley did not make the trip and would be out against the Pelicans Friday night when they open a three-game road trip.
Bradley will miss the contest with a sprained left elbow, suffered Wednesday night during the first quarter of their win over the Jazz. After briefly exiting to the locker room, he returned, donned a black arm sleeve and finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists. He played 36 minutes but still appeared to favor the left arm, as he did when he initially left late in the first quarter.
The Celtics announced Thursday afternoon on...
FORT MYERS, Fla. — There is a long way to go before the Red Sox Opening Day roster is decided upon, but there is one scenario that should be broached: Rusney Castillo possibly starting in the minor leagues.
It isn’t believed that Castillo’s left oblique strain will keep him out long enough to dent his chance at earning a spot in the Red Sox‘ outfield. (“I feel a lot better,” he told WEEI.com through translator Adrian Lorenzo, “especially compared to the other days.”)
Still, the presence of Mookie Betts in center field, Shane Victorino in right field and Allen Craig and Daniel Nava presenting value on the roster has led to the thought that the $72.5 million man might...
Back in my days at the Boston Herald, I wrote a piece about pitchers’ big league debuts. The subject came up again on Thursday, because the Red Sox open the spring against the Twins, who are managed by Hall of Famer Paul Molitor, who happens to be the first batter Farrell ever faced.
The Herald story is archived, so I can’t provide a link, but here’s a chunk of it dealing with Farrell and Molitor, who had a more memorable confrontation a few days later in that 1987 season, when Farrell ended Molitor’s 39-game hitting streak.
Farrell had just turned 25 when he was summoned from Triple A Nashville to Cleveland in August of 1987 for a spot start.
He arrived at the old...
Put all those “Shaqtin A Fool” parties on hold for now.
According to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, big man JaVale McGee will not be coming to Boston after all. Bulpett reported Thursday afternoon that his representative and the Celtics could not come to an agreement on a contract.
As a result, McGee remains a free agent center available for any team to scoop him up.
Earlier Thursday, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reported the Celtics and McGee were all but set on a deal that would land him in Boston as the...
