Bard asks for help finding missing friend

Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard asked reporters prior to his team's game with the Tigers in Detroit to publish the Facebook page that had been set up to assist the search of Matt Hill, a close friend of Bard who has been missing since Tuesday. 

Hill, who was a groomsman in Bard's wedding, was last seen in the Washington, D.C., area Tuesday morning near the home of a student from George Washington University the 26-year-old was mentoring.

Bard asked that anybody with information call the D.C. Metro Police at 202-730-1903. Police are still searching for Hill's 1996 black Honda CX car, which has a D.C. license plate of DT-2747. Hill is 6-foot-2, 185 pounds and last communicated with Bard via text Monday.

The Facebook page assisting in the search is www.facebook.com/findmatthill.

Lineup: Crawford dropped to seventh

 Despite his hot-hitting of late, Carl Crawford has been dropped to seventh in the Red Sox lineup in the Sox' meeting with the Tigers Saturday night at Comerica Park with left-hander Andy Oliver on the mound. Crawford, who is 9-for-12 in his last three games, is hitting just .115 (7-for-61) against lefties. Also of note is that Mike Cameron gets the starts in right field, with J.D. Drew still nursing an injured hamstring. The Sox' lineup is as follows:

Jacoby Ellsbury CF

Dustin Pedroia 2B

Adrian Gonzalez 1B

Kevin Youkilis 3B

David Ortiz DH

Jed Lowrie SS

Carl Crawford LF

Mike Cameron RF

Jarrod Saltalamacchia C

Clay Buchholz P

Source: Horton fined $2,500
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli revealed Saturday that forward Nathan Horton was fined by the league for squirting Tampa fans and then throwing a water bottle into the crowd following Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

"You know that’s an unfortunate incident. I didn’t really focus on it and I didn’t talk to Nathan about it," Chiarelli said. "He has been fined, so that issue has been resolved."

While Chiarelli did not reveal how much Horton had to fork over, a source told WEEI.com Saturday that the fine was for $2,500, which is the same amount defenseman Andrew Ference paid after giving the middle finger to Montreal fans in Game 4 of the quarterfinals. There was no hearing with the league prior to the disciplinary action, suggesting the winger was not in any danger of being suspended, as Rangers coach John Tortorella was for hitting a fan with a bottle in 2009.

Recchi: 'This is what I came back for'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins assistant captain Mark Recchi made his decision to return for a 22nd season in the NHL last summer, electing to re-up with the B's after the team was eliminated in the second round by the Flyers. Now that his team is in the Stanley Cup finals, the two-time Cup winner said after Friday's Eastern Conference-clinching victory over the Lightning that this is what he had in mind when he decided to return.

"This is what I play for, to get this opportunity one more time, and probably my last time is pretty special," Recchi said. "WIth this group of guys, right from Day 1 in training camp we put a lot of belief in each other, a lot of trust, and a lot of working together. I'm going to end my career at some point and say this is one of the better groups I played with. I'm proud to play with them regardless of what happens."

At 43 years of age, Recchi may very well be in his last season, as he said late in the regular season that...

Thomas: 'It's been a long time for Boston'

Tim Thomas has waited his whole career to get to this point and now the Bruins goalie will have the chance to play on hockey's biggest stage and play for the most famous trophy in all of North American sports. Thomas stopped all 24 shots Friday night, posting his second shutout of the playoffs and third career in the postseason, in Boston's 1-0 win that sends them to the Stanley Cup finals starting Wednesday in Vancouver. 

"This is a great moment," Thomas said. "There's no doubt about it. When's the last time Boston's been to the Stanley Cup finals? Twenty-one years. It's been a long time for Boston, it's been a long journey for me to get here. Now, you want to take advantage of this opportunity. There's more work to be done. Unfortunately, that's the way it is. You can't ever be too happy for too long until you're the last man standing.

"They had to earn. We pressured them, offensively. The only reason it was a 1-0 game...
