Thomas gets 5th shutout, B's top Philly
By: DJ Bean

It didn't advance them to the Eastern Conference finals, but the Bruins beat the Flyers, 3-0, in Philadelphia on Wednesday. Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin had goals in the first period, while Milan Lucic added an empty-netter to put the nail in the coffin. Tim Thomas turned in 41 saves for his league-leading fifth shutout of the season. 

 

The Bruins won in a rather flashy manner, receiving sprawling saves from Thomas and Tyler Seguin's latest eye-candy goal, a top-shelf tally on Flyers' goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. Thomas also stopped Flyers winger Scott Hartnell on a penalty shot in the second period. 

 

With five shutouts, Thomas tied his career high, which he had reached in each of the last two seasons. 

 

The Bruins will return to TD Garden on Thursday night, where they will face Steven Stamkos and the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Jackson, Paris lift BC over Indiana

Reggie Jackson scored a game-high 27 points and Boston College turned away Indiana, 88-76, Wednesday night at Conte Forum to remain undefeated in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

 

Biko Paris added 19 points for the Eagles (5-2), who never trailed in the game. BC led by 14 points at the half, 43-29. Indiana (6-1) chipped away in the second half and twice drew within a point. Both times, the Eagles answered with 3-pointers, first by freshman Danny Rubin (10 points) with 6:50 remaining, then by Paris with 5:24 remaining.

 

Center Josh Southern made a few nice plays down the stretch, including an assist to Paris on a back-door layup with 2:43 remaining that got the lead back to double figures at 75-64. He also found Rubin open for a 3-pointer with 2:05 left and grabbed an offensive rebound on a missed free throw with 1:38 left.

 

Both teams shot the ball well, with BC finishing at 52 percent and Indian just over 50...

Report: Sox to talk Beltre, Werth with Boras

According to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports (via twitter), the Red Sox will meet with agent Scott Boras on Thursday to discuss a pair of his clients, third baseman Adrian Beltre and outfielder Jayson Werth.

 

Werth and Beltre, along with outfielder Carl Crawford, are viewed as the three premier position players on the market this offseason. The Sox, Brown reported earlier on Wednesday, met with Crawford in Houston to discuss the team's interest in him.

 

Beltre declined the Sox' offer of salary arbitration on Tuesday in a formality, but he remains free to negotiate with any club, including the Sox. Likewise, Crawford (Rays) and Werth (Phillies) declined their teams' offer of arbitration, meaning that for the Sox to sign either outfielder, they would have to part with a first-round draft pick.

J. O'Neal may begin working out next week

The updates on injured center Jermaine O'Neal have been sporadic since he suffered a knee injury, but Doc Rivers said before Wednesday's game that O'Neal may start working out next week. "I talked to Jermaine today on the phone and he was hoping to work out next week," Rivers said. "That’s the first time I’ve heard that, so that’s a good sign." 

 

Rivers said earlier in the week that he would wait for trainer Eddie Lacerte to tell him when O'Neal was "a week away." That conversation hasn't happened yet, so don't expect a quick return to the court.

Pirates sign ex-Sox Andy Marte, Dusty Brown

According to a team press release, the Pittsburgh Pirates have signed a pair of players with ties to the Red Sox to minor league deals that include invitations to major league spring training.

 

Catcher Dusty Brown, who was taken by the Sox as a draft-and-follow in the 35th round of the 2000 draft and reached the major leagues with the Sox in 2009 and 2010, is in a new organization for the first time in his professional career. He was outrighted off the 40-man roster in October, and elected free agency before signing with Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old appeared in 13 big league games for the Sox, hitting .267 with a homer and three runs batted in. He also pitched in a game in 2009, recording a strikeout while allowing one run on two hits in an inning of work.
