Mashup: Milbury sorry for blasting Crosby

NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury apologized Tuesday for calling Penguins star Sidney Crosby "a punk" and making a sarcastic reference to his concussion problems during an interview on a Philadelphia radio station Monday and. Milbury had criticized Crosby for instigating a late-game brawl in the Penguins' loss to the Flyers on Sunday.

"In hindsight, I realize what I said was inappropriate and wrong, and I want to apologize to the Penguins organization and their fans," Milbury said.

Crosby took issue with Milbury's accusation that he started the ill will Sunday by cross checking Brayden Schenn, who retaliated a few seconds later with a cross check to the back.

"I don't really know what he's looking for -- if he's looking for attention or what. I don't know what it is," Crosby said Tuesday before leading his team past the Bruins, 5-3. "I don't have much to say there. I don't where that came from, and you can...

Julien: 'Fingers crossed' for Boychuk

Bruins coach Claude Julien said the team will have to wait until at least Wednesday to have a better idea of the left leg injury sustained by Johnny Boychuk in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Penguins at TD Garden. 

With 13 minutes remaining in the third, Boychuk was in the offensive zone when he made a move down from the right point. He was met by Pittsburgh's Aaron Asham and their knees appeared to collide. Boychuk slumped immediately to the ice and didn't move for about two minutes while training and medical personnel tended to the Bruins defenseman. Boychuk needed assistance from teammates Chris Kelly and Brian Rolston to make it off the ice. 

"Those kind of injuries you have to let the night go by," Bruins coach Claude Julien said afterward. "Keeping our fingers crossed that it's not bad news. It's really all we can hope for." 

Boychuk limped out of the Garden under his own power. 

"He got...

Overpowered: Crosby (2g), Pens beat B's

James Neal and Sidney Crosby scored power-play goals 48 seconds apart late in the second period to lift the Penguins to a 5-3 win over the Bruins Tuesday night at TD Garden. The game itself meant little to the Bruins, who already clinched the Northeast Division title and the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference for the upcoming playoffs. 

The Bruins started backup Marty Turco in net and dressed Anton Khudobin as a backup for the first time. Tim Thomas did not dress for the first time this season. While the game meant little to the Bruins, the game was huge for the Penguins (104 points), who moved three points ahead of the Flyers for fourth place and the final home ice spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.  

The biggest loss for the Bruins came when defenseman Johnny Boychuk's left knee collided with Aaron Asham's knee with 13 minutes left in the third. Boychuk had to be helped off the ice by teammates Chris Kelly and Brian Rolston and...

Source: Bailey out approximately 4 months

A major league source familiar with the condition of Red Sox closer Andrew Bailey said that the reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb is likely to sideline the right-hander for approximately four months, "give or take." That estimate is consistent with the description offered by Dr. Christopher Geary, the chief of sports medicine at Tufts Medical Center.

Geary suggested that after the surgery, Bailey first will wear a hard immobilizing cast and then a brace. He estimated that with a typical recovery trajectory, the pitcher would be unlikely to start throwing until he is roughly three months removed from the surgery. With the need to rebuild arm strength and appear in rehab games, an August return seemed like a reasonable expectation.

"My inclination is it would be probably about three months before they let him go back to unlimited activity in terms of throwing and fielding off a mound," Geary...

Heat go to Anthony to slow KG in Game 4

In an effort to slow down Kevin Garnett in the post, the Heat made a change in their starting lineup prior to Game 4 with the Celtics. Joel Anthony replaces Ronny Turiaf at the center postition. 

Turiaf had started the first three games in the series but was very ineffective in slowing Garnett down, especially in Game 3, when Garnett had 24 points and 11 rebounds and was practically unstoppable in the post, leading the Celtics to a 58-46 advantage in the paint. Garnett was 10-of-16 from the field in just 34 minutes as the Celtics beat the Heat, 101-91, leading by as many as 24 before the Heat made a late charge. 

For more coverage of Game 4 from the Garden from the team of Paul Flannery, Mike Petraglia and Ryan Hadfield, visit the Celtics team page at and the Green Street blog.
