Krejci in regulation, then Wheeler: B's win
By: DJ Bean

Blake Wheeler scored the only goal of the shootout, and Tim Thomas improved to 17-4-3 as the Bruins defeated the Panthers, 3-2, on Monday night in Florida.

 

David Krejci provided the Bruins with two goals, beating Scott Clemmensen on a rebound in the second period and finishing with a goal on a backhand shot in the third. Michael Ryder received assists on both goals, while Wheeler and Zdeno Chara each had a helper. 

 

David Booth and Mike Santorelli had goals for the Panthers in the second period. Santorelli's was reviewed to determine if his stick was above crossbar height when he redirected a Michael Frolik shot from the point. 

 

The Bruins moved into first in the Northeast division with the win and will face the Lightning in Tampa on Tuesday night.

Belichick: 'Don't need to risk any injuries'

Making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick explained his approach toward playing certain players in the regular-season finale against Miami Sunday. 

 

The Pats have already clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC heading into the playoffs, have nothing to gain by beating the Dolphins, and still have the memory of Wes Welker injuring his knee in the final game of the 2009 regular season.

 

"I think the answer to that question is a complicated one, but in the end it comes down to a very simple formula and that's we'll do what's best for the football team," said Belichick when asked by the show's co-hosts, Fred Smerlas and Steve DeOssie, regarding his strategy heading into Sunday's game at Gillette Stadium. "We'll take the entire football team into consideration, but each individual player and his situation is a little bit different depending what the depth is at that...

Shaq fined $35K for criticizing officiating

Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal has been fined $35,000 by the NBA for criticizing the referee Bob Delaney following his team's 86-78 loss to the Magic in Orlando on Christmas Day. Following the Celts' loss, O'Neal was quoted as saying, "“We have two premier big men out there.  He is pushing, I’m pushing. Let us play. I guess they [fans] come out to see No. 26 [Delaney] play. He was a great player out there today. They paid all that money to see No. 26 come play. My thing is, if you’re going to call it, call it the same way every time. Don’t pick and choose who you are going to call it against.”

Wilfork on D&H: 'We gave what we had'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made his weekly Patriots Monday appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday morning with guest hosts Mike Mutnansky and Chris Price.

 

Wilfork acknowledged that the flu had left him and some other Patriots in bad shape for Sunday's 34-3 win over the Bills. "It had a couple of us pretty messed up," Wilfork said, adding: "We fought through it. We knew how important this game was to us. The last thing we wanted to do was let down some of our teammates. I think we gave what we had to give."

 

Wilfork was asked how he will prepare the young players for their first postseason, now that the Patriots have clinched the top seed in the AFC. "Every game is like a championship game," he said. "Whatever you can think about from Little League to college, whatever it may be when you played championship football, this is what it's going to be about. The games...
