Late date: Panthers strike down B's

Tomas Kopecky scored with 2:32 left in the third period to break a scoreless tie as the Panthers beat the Bruins, 2-0, Thursday night at TD Garden. Jose Theodore stopped all 40 shots to hand the Bruins their second straight loss, the first time Boston has lost consecutive games since dropping a home-and-home series with the Canadiens Oct. 27-29. 

The Bruins had their chances in the opening period, outshooting the Panthers, 9-1, to open the game. In addition, they hit three posts in the first 10 minutes as Jose Theodore kept Boston off the board. 

The Bruins also had their chances on the power play but could not convert, missing on all four chances.

NBA blocks Paul trade to Lakers

Barely three hours after the reported parameters of a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers in exchange for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, the NBA has stopped the deal from happening.

The Hornets are owned by the NBA and according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, other owners were "irate" at their Board of Governors meeting that the team could trade Paul. The league said in a statement that, "The league office declined to make the trade for basketball reasons."

Several other national reporters also indicated that the deal is off. The Celtics were in the running for Paul, reportedly offering a package that revolved around Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green and draft picks.

Lockout over: NBA ratifies new CBA

The NBA lockout is finally officially over. After approval from the players union, the NBA's Board of Governors ratified the 10-year agreement by a vote of 25-5. Training camps will open on Friday as expected and the moratorium on signing free agents will be lifted at 2 p.m.

The salary cap will be set at $58.044 million with a luxury tax level of $70.307 million. The Celtics are expected to be over the tax line, which would limit them to using the smaller mid-level exception -- a three-year deal starting at $3 million per season -- in free agency.

B's sign Hamilton to entry level deal
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Thursday that they have signed defenseman Dougie Hamilton to an entry-level contract.

Hamilton, who is currently playing for the Niagara IceDogs, has 11 goals and 30 assists for 41 points this season and was named Defenseman of the Month for October. The 18-year-old will remain in the OHL this season, but figures to make a push for an NHL job next training camp. 

The Bruins chose Hamilton ninth overall in June's draft, selecting him with a pick acquired in 2009's trade with the Maple Leafs that sent Phil Kessel to Toronto. Hamilton was invited to Team Canada' selection camp for the World Junior Championships.
