Khokhlachev, Ferlin among latest Bruins cuts
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced another round of cuts Thursday evening, with Alexander Khokhlachev the biggest name among those headed to Providence.

Also released from camp were Brian Ferlin, Anton Blidh, Chris Breen, Brandon DeFazio, Ben Sexton and Tommy Cross. Breen, DeFazio and Sexton were previously cut from camp but recalled for Wednesday’s preseason game against the Rangers. Cross must first clear waivers before he can be assigned to Providence.

Khokhlachev’s assignment to Providence is the latest step in what’s been a frustrating tenure with the Bruins. After being chosen early in the second round of the 2011 draft (40th overall), the Russian center has performed well in the AHL but has underwhelmed in pro camps. Clearly a skilled player who figures to be an...

Chara won't play in Friday's preseason finale
By: DJ Bean

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara skated by himself again prior to Thursday’€™s practice as he continues to rehab an upper-body injury injury suffered in last Thursday’€™s preseason game against the Rangers. He did not practice afterwards and will not play in Friday’s preseason finale against the Capitals.

Chara was on the ice for at least 15 minutes, working with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides. He worked mostly on retrieving pucks, catching passes and stick handling. It does not appear Chara is ready to shoot the puck, as he abstained from shooting aside from an occasional lazy wrist shot.

Asked at Thursday’s media day availability whether he could shoot yet, Chara would only reply, “I skated today.”

Sabathia denies feud with Bradley

File this under Mystifying Feuds: CC Sabathia vs. Jackie Bradley Jr.

When the Red Sox played the Yankees in New York earlier this summer, the YES Network ran a fascinating montage of Sabathia basically losing his mind every time Bradley finished an at-bat — gesturing at him, swearing at him, and in one instance, drilling him before mockingly asking, “Are you OK?” as he took first base.

As competitive as Sabathia is, it certainly looks like there’s something more there, so what is it?

“I don’t know,” Bradley told recently....

Brady, Gostkowski pick up AFC monthly awards

The Patriots have started the season a perfect 3-0 and have had plenty of standout performances.

For their starts to the year, Tom Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September, while Stephen Gostkowski was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for September as well.

Brady has started the season 96-for-133 (72 percent) passing for 1,112 yards with nine touchdowns and zero interceptions. He threw career touchdown pass No. 400 in Sunday’s win over the Jaguars. It was Brady’s eighth career AFC Player of the Month award, tied with Peyton Manning for the most ever.

Gostkowski has gone 7-for-7 on field goal attempts this season, while connecting on all seven of his extra points. In the win Sunday, he became the NFL’s all-time leader for...

Bart Scott: 'Nothing tough about Tom Brady'

Former NFL linebacker and current CBS football analyst Bart Scott was on CBS Sports Radio Wednesday night and the toughness of NFL quarterbacks came up.

Scott took this subject into a way to rip Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when compared to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

“I respect Ben. Ben is a guy who can come sit at a table with any group on that team,” Scott said. “He can go sit with the d-linemen, ‘What up Ben?’ He’s like one of us. He had a defensive mentality. He has a tough guy mentality. There’s nothing tough about...
