Comeback blowout: Bruins beat Penguins
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins scored five unanswered goals in the third period, propelling them to an impressive 7-4 road victory over the Penguins on Wednesday. 

 

With the Bruins trailing, 4-2, after two periods, Nathan Horton and Zdeno Chara scored within 15 seconds of one another. Shawn Thornton, who had just one goal last season, scored his third of the year to give the B's their first lead of the game, and Blake Wheeler scored one of the more impressive goals of the season, taking a Mark Recchi pass in front of the net and beating Pittsburgh goalie Brent Johnson as he was losing his balance. Milan Lucic added an empty netter to seal the deal. 

 

Tim Thomas allowed four goals on the night, the most he has allowed on the season. With the victory, he improved to 8-0-0 on the season, the best start ever for a Bruins goalie. 

 

It was the B's first time visiting Pittsburgh since March 7, the day that Matt...

Moss: 'I'm not here to start trouble'

Randy Moss met with the media on Wednesday for the first time as a member of the Tennessee Titans. The Titans claimed the wide receiver off of waivers last week after he was released by the Vikings.

 

"I'm going to give y'all maybe two, not more than three questions," said Moss, who told reporters after his final game with the Vikings that he wasn't going to answer any questions for the rest of the season. "I've been through a lot in the last couple of weeks. Like I said, I've got these broad shoulders; I can carry a lot of weight."

 

Moss was asked what the Titans should expect from him on a snap-to-snap basis. He then asked the reporter what he expected from Moss. When the reporter said that he didn't know, Moss responded, "I don't know what to expect neither, next question."

 

When pressed about his time in Minnesota, Moss was quick to shift the focus back to the...
