Krejci skates for first time since concussion
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center David Krejci, out since suffering a moderate concussion last Saturday against the Blues, skated with recovering teammate Marco Sturm on Saturday morning, according to the Boston Globe's Fluto Shinzawa.

 

Claude Julien said on Friday that Krejci had ridden the stationary bike, which at the time was the most energy-intensive activity he had done following the concussion.

 

“He’s progressing nicely, I would say,” Julien said Friday. “Right now he’s at the stage where he’s on the bike. If things go well then he continues to move forward if things don’t go well, then we pull him back.”

Trapani, BC rout St. Francis in opener

The Steve Donahue era at Boston College got off to a roaring start Friday night as the Eagles demolished St. Francis (N.Y.), 79-49, in front of a crowd of 3,740 at Conte Forum.

 

Joe Trapani led the BC attack with 20 points, while Reggie Jackson and Corey Raji contributed 17 apiece.

 

The Eagles put this one to bed early, holding St. Francis to just 1-of-20 shooting and two points through the game's first 13 minutes. At that point, BC led 24-2. It was 38-15 at the half and never in doubt from there on out.

Bard on Miller: 'All the tools are still there'

Speaking from his home in Mississippi, Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard said regarding his team's acquisition of Andrew Miller -- Bard's teammate at the University of North Carolina -- "I was obviously pretty excited about," having gotten a text from Miller just minutes after the 25-year-old heard of the trade t the Sox Friday night.

 

"I think he had been told at least a few days that the Red Sox were pretty interested in him and had been asking around trying to get background information," Bard said. "He didn't think it was going to go through that fast, from what I understood. But he definitely sounded excited."

 

Bard and Miller, who was dealt to the Sox from the Marlins for lefty reliever Dustin Richardson, both were first-round draft picks in the 2006 MLB June amateur draft. Miller went to the Detroit Tigers with the sixth overall selection, while Bard fell to the Red Sox at No. 28. Miller...

Carucci on Big Show: Uncertainty at top

NFL.com senior writer Vic Carucci joined The Big Show to talk about the slate of weekend games and whether any team can actually be called the best in the NFL. "Maybe the Steelers," Carucci said. "I change week to week."

 

Carucci chalked up part of the reason to teams going with younger players and he said the emphasis on coaching is greater than it's ever been because of so much inexperience. "The coaching is more imperative than ever to try and acclimate these guys," Carucci said. "That's another reason why special teams are so bad. You got players who don't have a clue, who have never seen special teams. That's a part of the entire league that's suffered badly."

 

Carucci thinks that this week's game between the Steelers and Patriots will help answer some of those questions, but he's not sold on New England's ability to put pressure on Ben Roethlisberger. Carucci also weighed in...
