Woodhead leaves with head injury

FOXBORO -- Danny Woodhead suffered a head injury in the first quarter of Sunday's season finale against the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium. 

 

After running for a 19-yard gain on the Patriots' first scoring drive, he ran the ball up the middle on the Patriots' second series and fumbled. The Dolphins recovered for the Patriots' first turnover since Nov. 7, snapping New England's NFL-record streak of seven games without a turnover. Woodhead apparently suffered his head injury on the carry with just under nine minutes left in the first quarter and was ruled as questionable to return.

Pats inactives: Welker, Branch out

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker will not have another season-ending injury in the regular-season finale as the Patriots receiver has been deactivated for today's game against the Dolphins. Welker suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee in the season finale in Houston last year. Deion Branch is also inactive for the game, meaning Tom Brady and Brian Hoyer will be without the team's top two wide receivers.

 

Welker appeared on the practice report on Friday and was listed as limited but not injury-related while Branch has a sore knee but has been in the starting lineup ever since coming over from Seattle in an October trade. On the defensive side, LB Tully Banta-Cain (with a groin injury) is out as are defensive lineman Mike Wright and Brandon Deaderick. Fillling out the inactive list are TE Aaron Hernandez, OL Dan Connolly, DL Mike Wright and DL Ron Brace. 

 

For the Dolphins, Anthony Fasano and OL Lydon Murtha - both...

Julien on Rask: We needed bigger saves
By: DJ Bean

 Tuukka Rask, making his first start since Dec. 15, was pulled from the game after allowing three goals on 16 shots in the first period. The B's led, 4-3, at the time, and went on to lose, 7-6, to the Sabres in a shootout. 

 

Following the game, coach Claude Julien defended the decision in his post-game interview on NESN. 

 

"We felt that we needed some bigger saves," Julien said. "He hasn't played in a while, but still, we needed to win this hockey game, so we thought it was important to make that change."

 

Rask, who did not factor into the decision, is 2-7-1 this season. For more on the Bruins, visit the team page at weei.com/bruins.

Bruins defeated by Sabres in shootout
By: DJ Bean

In a game that could appropriately be summarized as a "shootout," the Bruins fell, 7-6, to the Sabres Saturday in a shootout. 

 

After Drew Stafford and Michael Ryder each scored in the first round of the shootout, Thomas Vanek and Tyler Seguin followed their teammates' leads. Tyler Ennis then beat Tim Thomas, who came on in relief of Tuukka Rask in the second period, before Zdeno Chara missed. 

 

The Bruins relinquished three leads and Stafford had his second hat trick vs. the B's this season. Sabres' netminder Ryan Miller allowed six goals on 40 shots, marking the third time in four games he's allowed at least four goals. 

 

The Bruins got first period goals from Andrew Ference, Dennis Seidenberg, Brad Marchand, and Zdeno Chara, but Tuukkka Rask allowed three goals on 16 shots and was pulled following the period. After Thomas relinquished the lead, the Bruins faced a 5-4 deficit...

Rask pulled after a period
By: DJ Bean

All eyes were on Tuukka Rask Saturday as he made his first start over two weeks, but his return to the net was short-lived as Claude Julien pulled the 23-year-old after one period. 

 

Rask allowed three goals in the first period on 16 shots. The Bruins held a 4-3 lead at the end of the period, and the Sabres tied it up when Drew Stafford beat Tim Thomas with a wrist shot at 6:17. 

 

With Thomas back in goal, he is now playing in his eighth straight game. Rask is 2-7-1 this season.
