Lucky turn: B's beat Flyers in shootout

Tim Thomas stopped Danny Briere while David Krejci, Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron all scored in the shootout to lift the Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Flyers in a thrilling St. Patrick's Day matinee at TD Garden. The Bruins gained two points and have 85 on the season, putting them momentarily a point ahead of Ottawa for the Northeast Division lead. 

Showing a sense of urgency from the opening drop, the Bruins came out hard against the Flyers. They recorded the first five shots of the game, including the first goal, a score by Chris Kelly on the rebound of a Benoit Pouliot shot at 6:23 to put the Bruins up, 1-0. It was the first time the Bruins had scored first since March 3 against the Islanders - a span of seven games. 

Thomas, who has struggled of late, then made a pair of momentum-saving stops, turning away Eric Wellwood on a short-handed slap shot after an Andrew Ference giveaway in the neutral zone. Moments later, with Jaromir...

Red Sox release Carlos Silva

The Red Sox announced that they have released right-hander Carlos Silva. Silva, who signed a minor league deal this winter that included the possibility of a $1 million salary if he was added to the big league roster, was diagnosed early in spring training with shoulder inflammation and was unable to throw for the last several weeks.

The 32-year-old had not pitched in the majors since 2010, in no small part due to shoulder woes. However, he showed enough stuff in workouts for the Sox this winter that the team was willing to sign him to a largely risk-free contract, with the idea that he could compete for a spot at the back of the rotation.

However, that scenario never materialized since Silva could not take the mound. The right-hander owns a career 70-70 record and 4.68 ERA.

Williams and Terrell Vinson (10 points) hit 3-pointers toward the end of the spurt that made the score 72-64 inside the final minute.

Report: Pats close to deal with Lloyd

According to a report in The Boston Globe, the Patriots are close to a deal with free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd.

Lloyd led the NFL with 1,448 receiving yards in 2010 for the Broncos but was traded to the Rams in October 2011 after failing to reach agreement on a long-term deal with the Broncos. He caught 51 passes for 683 yards and four touchdowns in his 11 games with St. Louis.

If Lloyd does in fact sign with the Patriots, it would reunite him with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who was his head coach in Denver and offensive coordinator last season in St. Louis. Lloyd has suggested recently that he was interested in playing for the Patriots and...

Pierce: Ankle 'should be fine'

SACRAMENTO -- Paul Pierce left the Celtics 120-95 loss to the Kings game late in the fourth quarter with what the team called a mild ankle sprain. Pierce said he stepped on the foot of Kings' guard Marcus Thornton and "tweaked it."

"It’s a little sore, just twisted it a bit at the end," Pierce said. "Should be fine though."

Asked if he would be able to play on Saturday night against the Nuggets, Pierce said, "We’ll see how it feels. It’s just a little tweak. Hopefully it doesn’t swell up on the plane ride."

Pierce played 35 minutes against the Kings on Friday, scoring 19 while making 5-of-15 shots from the floor and converting all nine of his free throw attempts. He added three rebounds and two assists. He is averaging a team-high 18.4 points per night, and has played in all but two of the Celtics' games this year.
