Mayo on D&C: Expect suspension this week

Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show early Friday morning for his weekly appearance and spent much of the conversation discussing the head-hits controversy. Mayo said the team watched the league's video on how to avoid such hits.

 

"We have seen it," he said. "We didn't really learn anything new. We knew not to launch, not to lead with your head, things like that."

 

However, Mayo did admit it can be difficult to avoid contact with the head. "It's kind of hard hitting a moving target when you're running full speed and he's running full speed," he said. "You've kind of got to aim a little lower now."

 

Mayo predicted a player somewhere will draw the ire of the league office this weekend. "I think so," he said. "I think it will take a little time to adjust to the new rules. I think we'll get a suspension this week...

Julien: Fans can see B's 'identity'

The Bruins showed what they hope will be their true identity on Thursday night in their 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals in the home opener. Coach Claude Julien referenced his team's newfound spirit and said he hopes the team plays the same way on the road as they do at home. 

 

"I think it was really important," Julien said. "To come out here and play our game, not trying to change our game because we're at home. From the reaction of the fans, I think they really enjoyed the way we played tonight. I think it's important we build an identity and we stick to it, whether we're on the road or at home. That's just playing hard.

 

"Our forecheck has to be good. Our transition game through the neutral zone is better this year so we just have to keep reminding ourselves that those are the things that give us success."

 

The Bruins will try to make it five straight and 2-0 at home...

Home nice: B's, Thomas sweep Caps

Michael Ryder and Nathan Horton scored power play goals and Tim Thomas was spectacular in net, stopping 38-of-39 shots, as the Bruins beat the Washington Capitals, 4-1, Thursday night in Boston's home opener at TD Garden. Since dropping their first game of the season in Prague, the Bruins have won four straight.

 

Ryder scored with just over 27 seconds left in the first period to snap Boston's 0-for-11 on the power play and ignite the Bruins. Rookie Jordan Caron took a pass from Patrice Bergeron two minutes into the second period and scored his second of the season. 

 

Horton tallied his team-leading fourth goal of the season when his slap shot rang off the pads of Semyon Varlamov and dribbled into the net on the power play to make it 3-0 Bruins. 

 

Thomas' only mistake was trying to clear a wobbly puck with just over 10 minutes left in the third. It wound up on the stick of Jason Chimera, who...
