Rask starting, Lucic, Ference out for B's
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters prior to Saturday's game against the Penguins that Tuukka Rask will start for the B's. Rask's last start came against the Penguins, as he earned a win in the Bruins' 4-2 come-from-behind victory in Pittsburgh on Monday.

 

Milan Lucic will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury, while Andrew Ference will miss his first game of the season due to an upper-body injury. Ference, who played in the team's first 43 games, left Thursday's 7-5 victory over Philadelphia after the second period. Rookie Matt Bartkowski, who was called up from Providence on an emergency basis Friday, is expected to play in his place. 

 

Bartkowski made his NHL debut on Monday in Pittsburgh, posting a minus-1 in 9:53 of ice time. He was filling in for Adam McQuaid and was returned to Providence the following day.

Cromartie: 'I can say what the hell I want'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie was asked by WEEI.com on Friday about the possibility that he could be fined by the NFL for his comments about Tom Brady. Many in the media are suggesting that a fine is in order for Cromartie, who told the New York Daily News on Tuesday that he "hates" Brady and used several expletives to describe the New England quarterback.

 

"I really don't care," Cromartie said Friday. "I'm not going to take anything back about what I said. It's my opinion and it's how I feel. I don't like [Brady]. That's how I feel. Go back to the First Amendment — I can say what the hell I want to say. Go to that. If you have a problem with me, oh, well, go read the First Amendment. If you don't like it, take the First Amendment out."

Shaq 'agrees' with Doc calling him old

Shaquille O'Neal played a season-high 35 minutes, scoring 23 points on 10-of-12 shooting, leading the Celtics to a 99-94 win over Charlotte Friday night at TD Garden. After the game, O'Neal said he wasn't motivated by Rivers pre-game jab that the 38-year-old center is day-to-day because "he's old as hell."

 

"I would agree," O'Neal said without hesitation. "I've been around a long time. I knew that whatever happened I was going to be ready. I’ve been in foul trouble and haven’t really played a lot of minutes so there was really no excuse for me to be tired. I just came out and got a few more touches tonight and just did what I do.”

 

O'Neal added that he's on the Celtics to do whatever the team needs, especially while Kevin Garnett, Kendrick Perkins and Jermaine O'Neal are out of the lineup. "I’m here to do whatever Doc asks me to do," O'Neal added.

Epstein discusses Sox SS situation

Speaking after the Hot Stove Cool Music roundtable, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein said that as things stand, Marco Scutaro will be the shortstop for the 2011 Red Sox. That said, he also suggested that Jed Lowrie will be an important contributor, and that his performance will help to dictate his role and how much he plays at short.

 

"We have two really talented shortstops on the roster at different phases of their career, and they’ll both end up helping this club win," Epstein said. "How it shakes out in terms of playing time will be up to [manager Terry Francona] — and, ultimately, the players will determine their own roles. If we're a better team with one guy playing two-thirds of the time and the other guy playing one-third of the time and moving around, that's what we'll be. If it looks like we'll be a better team with a more traditional arrangement or a time share, that's what we'll do. Players, ultimately, make those...

3 for 30: Shaq, Rondo power C's to 30th win

Rajon Rondo fell just four rebounds shy of another triple-double while Shaquille O'Neal scored a game-high 23 points as the Celtics held off the Charlotte Bobcats, 99-94, Friday night at TD Garden. The Celtics were very effective from long distance, draining 8-of-19 from beyond the arc. 

 

Rondo's 3-pointer with five minutes left put the Celtics up 11, 87-76, and the C's coasted home from there. The Celtics guard finished with 18 points and 13 assists. O'Neal's 23 points came in a season-high 35 minutes and were the most since Nov. 24 when he scored a season-best 25 against New Jersey. Ray Allen finished with 19 and hit back-to-back threes in the fourth to help the Celtics pull away. 

 

The Celtics joined the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat as 30-game winners, improving to 30-9 on the season and 2-1 on their six-game homestand. They are off until Monday night when they host Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic in...
