Report: Pats agree to terms with WR Lloyd

The Patriots have reached an agreement with free agent wide receiver Brandon Lloyd on a contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. (UPDATE, 9:22 p.m.: Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network reports the deal is worth three years and $12 million.)

The 30-year-old Lloyd, who has averaged 74 catches a season the last two years, has been connected to the Patriots throughout the free agent process for several reasons, not the least of which included his well-known fondness for Josh McDaniels, the New England offensive coordinator who had worked with Lloyd in Denver and St. Louis.

Over the course of his nine-year career in the NFL, the Illinois product has caught 311 passes for 4,784 yards and 31 touchdowns. His best season came in 2010 when he pulled in 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11 touchdowns with the Broncos.

Lucky turn: B's beat Flyers in shootout

Tim Thomas stopped Danny Briere while David Krejci, Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron all scored in the shootout to lift the Bruins to a 3-2 win over the Flyers in a thrilling St. Patrick's Day matinee at TD Garden. The Bruins gained two points and have 85 on the season, putting them momentarily a point ahead of Ottawa for the Northeast Division lead. 

Showing a sense of urgency from the opening drop, the Bruins came out hard against the Flyers. They recorded the first five shots of the game, including the first goal, a score by Chris Kelly on the rebound of a Benoit Pouliot shot at 6:23 to put the Bruins up, 1-0. It was the first time the Bruins had scored first since March 3 against the Islanders - a span of seven games. 

Thomas, who has struggled of late, then made a pair of momentum-saving stops, turning away Eric Wellwood on a short-handed slap shot after an Andrew Ference giveaway in the neutral zone. Moments later, with Jaromir...
