MONTREAL — Torey Krug will likely be in the lineup Thursday against the Canadiens, Bruins coach Claude Julien said Thursday morning.
Krug, who missed Tuesday’s practice with an unspecified injury, was one of seven defensemen to take the ice for a morning skate. The session included everybody but Adam McQuaid, who did not travel with the team. Julien said after the skate that Krug would be a game-time decision, but that he would in all likelihood be in the lineup.
“I think he looked pretty good there this morning, so he will be game-time, but I’d be extremely surprised if he didn’t play,” Julien said.
For what it’s worth, Krug had clear skate protectors over his feet for Thursday’s session, which he usually does not wear. That could be...
According to a major league source, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with relief pitcher Edward Mujica for what Yahoo! Sports is reporting is a two-year, $9.5 million deal. The completion of the deal is pending a physical
Mujica has the capability to pitch in a late-inning role, having served as the Cardinals’ closer for much of the 2013 season before losing the job to Trevor Rosenthal. The 29-year-old did battle second-half injuries, dealing with a groin injury.
“My groin was bothering me, but I was trying to keep going, trying to help the team win. But you know, it [didn't] happen,” he told reporters during the World Series.
The righty had turned in stellar first half for the Cardinals in ’13, making the National League All-Star team. During that stretch he limited batters to a .188 batting average, striking out 25 and walking just one in collecting 26 saves.
FOXBORO — Linebacker Brandon Spikes returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday for what was likely a “maintenance” rest day.
The hard-hitting run-stopping linebacker was on Wednesday’s injury report for a “non-injury related” issue, though he has been dealing with a sore knee for several weeks, as indicated on previous injury reports.
Three other players were absent, including Alfonzo Dennard, who left the team to deal with a court appearance in Nebraska.

Everybody can just pump the brakes on Rajon Rondo‘s imminent return.
After conflicting reports over the past week about whether or not Rondo has been cleared to return to practice 10 months after surgery to repair the ACL in his right knee, The Boston Globe’s Baxter Holmes is reporting that the Celtics point guard is not scheduled for a checkup with famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews for another two weeks. As a result, while Rondo has participated in limited practice work, he has reportedly not been cleared for full contact.
FOXBORO — Alfonzo Dennard was not at Patriots practice on Thursday. Instead, he was headed for a court appearance in Nebraska.
A probation sentencing in Lancaster District Court is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET while a DUI sentencing is scheduled for Friday at the same time, also at Lancaster County Court.
However. Dennard’s lawyer, Alan Stoler, told the Boston Herald Wednesday that Dennard filed a request for a continuance to delay the DUI sentencing until after the NFL season.
Stoler is hoping Dennard’s compliance with his probation terms would be enough to convince the judge to grant the continuance. Stoler told the Herald that Dennard has completed more than 65 hours of probation work since September and could finish the remainder of his 100...
