Marchand 'questionable' for Thursday's game
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON — Brad Marchand was once again missing from the Bruins’ practice at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday. Following the skate, coach Claude Julien said the forward is “questionable” for Thursday night’s tilt against the Thrashers at TD Garden.

 

Marchand has been out since leaving Saturday’s game against the Capitals late in the second period. The team has not disclosed what the injury is, but Julien has said that it stemmed from a hit he took in the game. Daniel Paille has skated with the energy line in his absence.

 

In 31 games this season, Marchand has 12 points (4 G, 8 A) and a plus-5 rating. Three of his four goals have come on the penalty kill.

Julien: 'I hear' what's being said about me
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- On Wednesday, Bruins coach Claude Julien addressed the swirling speculation over whether his job in Boston is safe. Fans have called for the team to fire him, while media outlets have also raised the question of whether a coaching change could be in the works. 

 

"I don't let that get to me. I come in, I'm going to coach the same way, and I'm going to do what I do the best I can," Julien said after the team's practice at Ristuccia Arena. "It's as simple as that.

 

"It is what it is. Honestly, I just went out there today and yesterday very positive with the players and doing my job just like I would any other day. I hear what's going out there, but certainly not listening or reading, because that's certainly not helpful for me."

 

Julien is in his fourth season as head coach of the Bruins. He has led the team to three straight playoff appearances,...

Terrell Suggs: Brady not Pro Bowl worthy

FOXBORO — Tom Brady may be having one of his best seasons ever, but that's not good enough to even land a spot on one AFC player's Pro Bowl ballot. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs told Yahoo's Michael Silver he voted for Peyton Manning, Phillip Rivers and Ryan Fitzpatrick but not Brady for the game to be played Jan. 30 in Hawaii.

 

Brady and Suggs have a past of exchanging shots at one another. The two have had big battles in the last year, including the playoffs last January when the Ravens won, 33-14, and on Oct. 17, when the Patriots prevailed in overtime, 23-20. It was after the game in October that Suggs made fun of Brady's supermodel wife, Gisele, and Brady replied, "They talk a lot for only beating us once in nine years."

 

Asked if he was forgetting about Brady's prolific season in omitting the Patriots...

Jenks has bonuses for closing games

According to a major league source, Bobby Jenks’ contract — which is guaranteed to pay the reliever $6 million per season for the next two years — also includes some noteworthy bonuses. The 29-year-old can earn up to an additional $1 million by finishing games, specifically: $200,000 each for 30, 40, 50, 55 and 60 games completed.

 

(The last time the Red Sox issued such bonuses to free-agent relievers other than Papelbon were to Joel Pineiro and J.C. Romero, both of whom were considered candidates for the closing job when it appeared Papelbon might go into the starting rotation.)

 

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said Tuesday that the plan is for Jenks to be setting up closer Jonathan Papelbon for the 2011 season.

 

“We feel really lucky that Bobby wanted to pitch here and we were able to get someone of his caliber to join our bullpen and help Dan Bard set up for Pap,”...
