Red-hot Rask to start vs. Coyotes
By: DJ Bean

It seems the Bruins will ride the hot hand and give Wednesday's start to Tuukka Rask.

Rask, who has picked up shutouts in his last two starts, was first off the ice at Wednesday's morning skate, suggesting he'll be between the pipes against the Coyotes. The Finnish netminder's shutout streak is currently at 155:10, as he did not allow a goal on Dec. 10 when he played the third period in relief of Tim Thomas against Columbus.

Rask is 7-4-1 this season with a 1.66 goals against average and a league-best .944 save percentage.

Thomas last played last Monday against the Canadiens and should get the start Saturday against the Stars.

Pats practice: Brady, Mankins, Vollmer miss

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady was not at the media portion of Patriots practice on Wednesday as the team began preparations for their season finale against the Bills this Sunday at Gillette Stadium. 

Brady was hit in his non-throwing shoulder late in the win over the Dolphins on Christmas Eve and was spotted with a wrap on it after the game. Also missing from practice in sweats and shells on the upper grass fields were Logan Mankins and Sebastian Vollmer. Mankins injured his left knee in the first quarter of Saturday's win over the Dolphins. Mankins moved from left guard and started at left tackle, taking the place of Matt Light, who was a late scratch Saturday with a sore right foot.

Vollmer injured his right foot in the win over the Eagles on Nov. 27 and hasn't practiced or played since. 

Brady spoke to the media on Wednesday and did a sit-down with ESPN's Chris Berman in visitor's locker room. All indications are that Brady will be...

Gammons on M&M: Crawford 'lost himself'

MLB Network analyst Peter Gammons joined the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about the Red Sox and offseason news from around baseball, as well as promote his Hot Stove Cool Music charity concert, which takes place Jan. 14.

The Red Sox have not been very active in the past two months, despite having some holes to fill. Gammons said it's not a major concern due to the fact that the competition also has been quiet.

"I think that there's still stuff they need to do," he said. "The good thing is that the Yankees haven't done anything. Toronto really hasn't. And Tampa will end up trading either Wade Davis or [Jeff] Niemann to get a young bat somewhere along the line, maybe with the Angels. But at the same time, I don't think that the division is better than it was last year. So, that probably helps them, and it gives them time to see what there is out there that they can add.

Brady named AFC Offensive Player of Week

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Wednesday was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season. Brady completed 27-of-46 passes for 304 yards and a touchdown and rushed for two 1-yard TDs Saturday, leading the Patriots back from a 17-0 halftime deficit to a 27-24 victory over the Dolphins.

Brady, the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November, previously won weekly honors for his 517-yard passing performance in a Week 1 win over the Dolphins and a 423-yard effort the following week vs. the Chargers. It's the 20th such honor of his career.

Brady needs 103 yards in Sunday's game against the Bills to join Drew Brees and Dan Marino as the only players in NFL history to pass for 5,000 yards in a season.

Mashup: Experimental treatment for A-Rod?

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez recently traveled to Germany for experimental therapy on his right knee, according to a New York Post report. Rodriguez received a recommendation from Lakers star Kobe Bryant before getting Orthokine, which involves taking blood from a patient's arm and spinning it in a centrifuge before injecting it into the injured area.

The Yankees checked with the league office before giving their approval for the procedure, which has yet to be proven as a long-term fix. Bryant reportedly had it done on his right knee last summer and again on his left ankle in October.

“These guys like it, they say it works and they are looking for any potential edge,” said Dr. Jonathan Glashow, co-chief of sports medicine at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital. “It’s not an absolute thing. While it appears a lot of guys get relief from it, the jury is still out in terms of it really being critically studied.”
