Kelly days away from returning to B's lineup
By: DJ Bean

Chris Kelly skated for the fourth consecutive day on Thursday as he nears a return from a broken tibia suffered on March 11 against the Senators, but Thursday marked the first time he skated with his teammates.

Kelly participated fully in the Bruins’ morning skate, and though he will not play Thursday against the Devils, Claude Julien said that his return to the lineup is right around the corner.

“I think it’s just a matter of probably days now vs. a week that hopefully he’ll be back,” Julien said.

The coach added that Kelly will travel with the team to Montreal this weekend for Saturday’s game, though it’s too early to tell whether Kelly will...

Jagr on B's: 'At the end, it's going to be great'

New Bruins superstar Jaromir Jagr, acquired in a Tuesday trade with the Dallas Stars, says he’s not a young kid anymore but he’s very happy to be with the Bruins.

At 41, Jagr figures to re-energize a team that again has aspirations of lifting Lord Stanley’s Cup in June.

So, it’s no surprise to find Jagr hasn’t given serious thought to retirement.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I love to play. If I feel healthy and I feel like I can play on some kind of good level, I want to keep playing, if I can get an opportunity to play. I’m not going to saying anything [like] I’m retiring because I’m not ready for it. I love the game too much, so if I’m not good for the NHL, I’m going to go and play in the Czech League or somewhere else but I still love the game and like everybody else, if you love something, you just don’t want to...

Seguin to center Jagr and Marchand
By: DJ Bean

When the Bruins acquired Jaromir Jagr, it seemed a question of whether he would play on Boston’s first line or third line. As it turns out, Patrice Bergeron‘s concussion had a big say in the matter, as Jagr took part in his first morning skate with the Bruins on the second line, with Tyler Seguin at center.

The lines in morning skate were as follows:

Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Nathan Horton Brad Marchand – Tyler Seguin – Jaromir Jagr Jay Pandolfo – Rich Peverley – Kaspars Daugavins Daniel Paille – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton

Though Seguin was drafted as a center after playing mostly center in the OHL, he has primarily been a right wing in his time in the NHL. With Bergeron out, he’ll be given more responsibility initially, although the Bruins have lots of players capable of playing center on their roster (...

Rivers on D&C: Jeff Green 'starting to take off'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning and talked about the final month of the regular season, the Mike Rice controversy at Rutgers, and how he almost played for Bobby Knight at Indiana.

The Celtics clinched a playoff berth Wednesday with a 98-93 victory over the Pistons. Jeff Green scored 34 points and hit a key 3-pointer in the final minute, continuing his resurgence after sitting out last season following heart surgery.

“He missed a year last year. You just don’t walk back on the court and play well, especially with the injury that he had,” Rivers said. “I just think it took some time. This is the next phase of his career, and he’s starting to take off.”
