Milbury on D&H: Lucic has lost his edge

Mike Milbury, who provides NHL analysis for NESN, NBC and Hockey Night in Canada, made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday. With the Bruins struggling, Milbury was asked what the team needs to do to turn things around.

 

"I haven't seen the intense forecheck, except when they get desperate," he said. "That's not a good thing. You want to get on the forecheck. You want to get in and create some havoc. And when you're doing that, that means physical play. And if you've been watching the Bruins for the last five or six games, you're not seeing a ton of that. And I'm not talking about fighting. I'm talking about in-fast, pressure forechecking, intimidating not only with your bodychecking, but with your speed and intensity to cut down the time the defenseman has to move the puck. They're sort of blah. … The Bruins have to play at a far higher pace to be successful."

'Perfect' Brady earns AFC POTW honor

Tom Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week by the National Football League for his "perfect" performance in the Patriots' 45-24 win over the Lions on Thanksgiving Day. It is the 16th time in Brady's career that he has received the AFC Offensive Player of the Week honor.

 

Brady finished 21-of-27 for 341 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a perfect passer rating of 158.3, the second time in his career that he has finished a game with the highest possible passer rating. He also had a perfect rating on Oct. 21, 2007, at Miami. He is the third player in NFL history to have more than one game with a perfect rating (minimum of 20 attempts), joining Peyton Manning (3) and Kurt Warner (3).

 

Brady threw two touchdown passes to both Wes Welker and Deion Branch, including a season-long 79-yard touchdown pass to Branch in the third quarter. Brady increased his 2010 touchdown total to 23, a...

Mashup: Giants' Rolle blasts NY fans

A couple of stories out of New York highlight Wednesday's look at news from the web. First off, Giants safety Antrel Rolle is not happy with New York fans who booed the team before its comeback Sunday against the Jaguars. Rolle, who signed with the Giants in the offseason after five years with the Cardinals, didn't like the reaction from the home crowd when New York fell behind 17-6 in the first half. The Giants came back to win the game 24-20 and improve to 7-4. "You don't boo your team," Rolle said. "I don't care what happens. You don't boo your team."

 

Meanwhile, the Nets and Knicks have been at odds since the Nets started moving ahead with their plans to relocate to Brooklyn. The Knicks did not take well to a billboard ad the Nets displayed near Madison Square Garden, responding with an enormous Amar'e Stoudemire ad in Brooklyn. More recently, the Knicks produced an ad that taunted the Nets, saying: "Hey Nets, You...

Beltre rejects Red Sox arbitration offer

As expected, the Red Sox confirmed that free agent third baseman Adrian Beltre is turning down the team's offer of salary arbitration. Beltre had already declined a $10 million player option with the Sox for the 2011 season after having a tremendous season in Boston (.321 with a .919 OPS, 28 homers, 102 RBI) while playing on a one-year contract.

 

Beltre reportedly received a five-year, $64 million offer from the A's earlier this offseason. There are reports that he is seeking a five-year, $90 million payout, using a deal signed by Angels outfielder Torii Hunter a few years ago as his model.

 

If Beltre, a Type A free agent, should sign with a club other than the Sox, Boston would receive two draft picks in return. The Sox have already secured two picks from the Tigers, who signed Type A free agent Victor Martinez, and they could receive another compensatory draft pick for the departure of Type B free agent Felipe Lopez,...

Rondo, Celtics cruise past Cavaliers

Rajon Rondo scored a season-high 23 points while also dishing out 11 assists to lead the Celtics to a convincing 106-87 victory in Cleveland over the Cavaliers. Five other Celtics also reached double digits, as Boston shot 50.6 percent from the field while holding the Cavs to a meager 39.0 percent.

 

The Celtics actually trailed, 23-21, after the first quarter, but a dominant second quarter put the game away. The C's outscored their opponents 35-22, cruising to victory. Aside from Rondo, who played 38 minutes, no other member of the Celtics was on the floor for more than 33 minutes.
