Julien: Let league handle 'blindside' hit
By: DJ Bean

Though the Bruins had plenty to smile about after their 8-1 blowout of the Canucks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals, their concerns were with the guy who's made a Boston career out of smiling. Nathan Horton had to watch the final two periods of the game from Mass General Hospital after taking a blindside hit to the head from Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome and leaving the game on a stretcher.

"I think what I would  call it is it was a blindside hit that we've talked about taking out of the game," Julien said when asked if he felt the hit on Horton was dirty. "[Horton] made the pass. It was late. [Rome] came from the blindside. Whether it's through the motion of the hit, it appeared he left his feet a little bit.

"Again, that's my view on it. I'm not going to comment more than that. I'll say what I always say: let the league take care of it.  We're trying to clean that out.  Let's see where they go with that....

Julien: 'I'm not accepting' taunting by Bruins

Speaking after his team's 8-1 win over Vancouver in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals at the TD Garden Monday night, Bruins coach Claude Julien said he was disappointed in some of his team's actions toward the Canucks. Julien admonished his team for participating in such actions as the ones exhibited by Mark Recchi to Vancouver's Ryan Kesler, and Milan Lucic toward Alex Burrows, both of which involved taunting with their finger.

"They've been told that I don't want any of that stuff," Julien said. "You know, like I said, you got to live by your words. It was disappointing for me to see that happen after what I said this morning. But part of is my fault for not bringing it up to the guys. They did it. Emotions got the better of them. I'm going to stand here and say I'm not accepting it. The guys have been told.

"I don't want that stuff in our game. I think we have to be better than that. Emotions are running high. It was a very...

Malhotra: 'I thought it was a very clean hit'

Speaking to the media following Game 3, Canucks center Manny Malhotra defended teammate Aaron Rome's hit on Nathan Horton. The hit, which Claude Julien deemed to be blindside forced Horton to hit the ice head-first in the first period and leave the game on a stretcher. 

"I thought it was a very clean hit", said Malhotra.  "Just the timing was maybe a fraction off but all in all you see those hits on a daily basis throughout the league."

Malhotra returned to the Canucks lineup in Game 2, nearly 12 weeks after suffering a major eye injury when he was struck by a puck during on March 16th.

Sweet revenge: B's clobber Canucks

The Bruins responded to a late, devastating late hit on Nathan Horton with a four-goal second-period explosion and manhandled the Canucks, 8-1, Monday night in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals. Game 4 is set for Wednesday night in Boston before the series returns to Vancouver for Game 5. Tim Thomas stopped 40-of-41 shots in another brillant playoff performance. 

Just over five minutes into the game, Horton skated into the offensive zone on his second shift of the night and was leveled by a late hit from the blindside by Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome. The Bruins top-line forward was laid out on the ice for several minutes and examined by Bruins medical staff before a stretcher came on the ice to take him off. Horton was taken to Mass General and had movement in all extremities but is expected to stay there for further evaluation. Rome was given a game misconduct. 

The two teams played a scoreless tie in the first, with the Bruins managing...

Sox use second pick on HS catcher Swihart

The Red Sox used their second pick of the first round -- the No. 26 overall selection -- to take high school catcher Blake Swihart out of Cleveland High School in Rancho Rio, N.M. Swihart is a switch-hitter whose athleticism suggests the potential to stay behind the plate; certainly, he is the highest-ceiling catching prospect whom the Sox have selected under general manager Theo Epstein.

Swihart, who has a scholarship commitment to the University of Texas, was the leading hitter on the Under-18 Team USA squad last summer, hitting .448 with a .492 OBP and .845 slugging mark for the select group of prep talents. For more on Swihart, visit the Full Count blog.
