According to a tweet from SI's Jon Heyman, the trade that would have sent first baseman Adrian Gonzalez to the Red Sox is off. The 2 p.m. deadline for the sides to reach a contract extension passed without a deal being struck, with Heyman tweeting that the Red Sox "just could not reach [a] deal with [Gonzalez]."
A source reportedly told Heyman that Gonzalez' camp wanted an eight-year deal for the 28-year-old, while the Red Sox were more inclined to give a six-year deal. Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal noted in a tweet following the deadline that the Red Sox could still go through with the...

The Maple Leafs claimed a 3-2 shootout win over the Bruins, Saturday night in Toronto. Clinching the shootout for the Leafs was former Bruin Phil Kessel, whose shot on Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas was caught between the pads of the netminder, whose momentum carried him into the goal. Michael Ryder's attempt at extending the shootout failed when his bid clanged off the left post.
Thomas excelled for most of the game -- making 38 saves -- dropped to 13-2-2 on the season.
The Maple Leafs sent the game into overtime when Kris Versteeg swept in from the left side and scored a power-play goal with just 42 seconds left in regulation. The extra man for the Maple Leafs had been made possible because of a Patrice Bergeron holding penalty. Earlier in the third, Gregory Campbell broke deadlock with his third goal of the season, giving the Bruins a 2-1 advantage.
In overtime, Thomas made perhaps the save of the year...
Reggie Jackson and Joe Trapani scored 17 points each and Boston College held off UMass, 76-71, Saturday night in the Tip-Off Classic at Boston Garden.
Josh Southern added 16 points for BC, which improved to 6-2. Anthony Gurley had a game-high 22 points for UMass, which suffered its first loss in eight games this season.
BC never trailed in the game, although UMass cut an 11-point halftime deficit to two points and had multiple chances to tie the score or take the lead. UMass was last within a possession at 70-67 with just over a minute remaining. But Southern got free for a layup, and after a UMass miss, Trapani snuck free for another layup, and the game was out of reach.

According to FoxSports.com, the Red Sox' 72-hour window to negotiation a contract extension with Adrian Gonzalez, granted by the commissioner's office, expires at 2 p.m. Sunday. Multiple reports suggested that there were no issues within the physical administered by the Sox on Gonzalez, who is slated to make $6.3 million in 2011, the final year of his current deal. The Red Sox and Padres have agreed to the parameters to send the 28-year-old first baseman to the Sox in exchange for minor-leaguers pitcher Casey Kelly, first baseman Anthony Rizzo, and outfielder Reymond Fuentes. The deal would also send a player to be named later to San Diego.
