Lineup: Reddick promoted, McDonald to DL

The Red Sox lineup features an unexpected member on Thursday, as outfielder Josh Reddick has joined the team from Triple-A Pawtucket. He will bat eighth and play right field. Reddick was putting up tremendous power numbers with the PawSox, having hit 12 homers in 44 games. He was hitting .248 with a .344 OBP, .527 slugging mark and .871 OPS in Triple-A this year.

Regarding the roster spot, Reddick replaces Darnell McDonald, who has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a quad injury.

Reddick entered the year saying that he felt more relaxed after the signing of Carl Crawford in the offseason. For more of his thoughts entering 2011, visit the Full Count blog.

Mashup: Bonds befriends beaten Giants fan

Controversial Giants legend Barry Bonds apparently has formed a bond with the family of Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was beaten after a game in Los Angeles. Bonds visited Stow in the hospital and wrote on his website: "I look forward to taking Bryan and his kids to a Giants game when he recovers." Bonds also indicated that he will be funding a college tuition fund for Stow's two children.

Meanwhile, former Bonds trainer Greg Anderson, a convicted felon who sat in jail rather than testify against his longtime friend, is a coach for a youth baseball team outside of San Francisco. Some parents aren't happy about this situation.

Read more about those stories and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Julien implies Boucher influenced refs
By: DJ Bean

TAMPA -- Bruins coach Claude Julien said he "disagreed" with the officiating in Wednesday's Game 6 loss to the Lightning. The Bruins had five power plays to the Lightning's four, but players and the coach took issue with some of the calls. What made matters worse in Julien's eyes were the fact that the calls came on the very day that Tampa coach Guy Boucher called referee Eric Furlatt "lopsided" in favor of the Bruins this postseason. Entering the game, Furlatt had called 24 penalties on the Lightning, as opposed to nine on the Bruins. 

 "What was more disappointing is probably the fact that I don't know if I agree with those calls," Julien said when asked about special teams. "Hopefully what was said today didn't have any impact on that, because if it did, I'd be really disappointed. You look back at those, and you get an opportunity to look back at them, and it's really, really tough to swallow."

Bergy: 'Could've been better on penalty kill'

TAMPA -- Despite the suggestion by Claude Julien that the officials may have been influenced by Lightning coach Guy Boucher, center Patrice Bergeron said the Bruins need to take some responsibility for surrendering three power play goals. 

"We have to stay disciplined against a team like them," Bergeron said. "Tonight, they did a good job on their power play but still, we could've been better on the power play. 

"Obviously, there were a couple after the whistle and a couple during the play. There were a couple of interference [calls] and we were just trying to make some room for our teammate but they were selling it good. At the same time, we have to make sure to stay out of the penalty box and stay disciplined. That's a key against them."

The Bruins had killed off 11 straight Tampa Bay power play chances before allowing three straight in second and third periods. The Bruins went 1-for-5 on the power play,...

Krecji: 'Still one win from Stanley Cup finals'

TAMPA -- After becoming the first Bruins player since Cam Neely to record a playoff hat trick, David Krejci said the disappointed Bruins can still take solace in the fact they have one game on home ice to win to get to the Stanley Cup finals. 

"It's tough, frustrating obviously, but that's why you work all season to get home ice advantage, and now we have it," Krejci said. "Game 7 in our building and in front of our fans, it's going to be exciting."

Krejci almost brought the Bruins back single-handedly from a 5-3 deficit late as he scored his third goal with 6:32 remaining in the third. His third goal not only matched Martin St. Louis with his NHL-leading 10th playoff goal, it gave him the first Boston playoff hat trick since Neely against the Canadiens on April 25, 1991. Krejci had several chances in the closing moments as the Bruins swarmed Dwayne Roloson but could not find the equalizer.
