Former NFL GM and current CBS pregame analyst Charley Casserly reported Sunday that Tom Brady and Randy Moss "had to be separated" in the locker room following an altercation a week before the wideout was dealt to the Minnesota Vikings.
"The week before Moss was traded, Tom Brady and Randy Moss went toe-to-toe and had to be separated," Casserly told Greg Gumbel. "One of Brady's problems with Moss was his behavior as a Patriot. One of the things overheard was Brady telling Moss, 'You've got to cut your beard.' And Moss counters, 'You've got to get your hair cut. You look like a girl.'"
Brady commented on Moss and the trade in an interview on "Patriots All Access" last week.
"Randy really knows how I feel about him,” Brady said. "I love him as a guy, as a person, as a player. He did a lot of great things for this team. At the same time, I think...
PRAGUE -- The newcomers made most of the offensive noise, but it was an old face in Tim Thomas who was the story as the Bruins picked up their first win of the season, a 3-0 shutout over the Coyotes at the O2 Arena in Prague.
Thomas made 20 saves on the night and recorded both his first win of the season and his 18th career shutout. The Bruins defense appeared to take its 2010-11 form after a sloppy showing on Saturday. The team heads back to Boston with two points through two games and will have five days of rest before returning to the ice against the Devils on Saturday.
Former third overall pick Nathan Horton picked up two more points in the game, including his third goal of the season. Rookie Tyler Seguin took a pass from Michael Ryder in the third period and converted it into a breakaway goal, the first of his NHL career.

An Associated Press report suggests that the takeover of Liverpool by the ownership of the Boston Red Sox will not happen if the Premier League club is forced into bankruptcy protection.
Should insolvency occur before a deal is struck with New England Sports Ventures, Liverpool would be hit with a nine-point penalty by the Premier League. That would drop Liverpool -- already off to its worst start in more than half a century -- down to English soccer's second tier and the NESV group would remove itself from any deal.
Liverpool could avoid bankruptcy if three of the club's board members are able next week to persuade a London court to force current owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett to sign off on the $476 million sale to NESV.
According to the AP report, Hicks and Gillett will claim in...
In an interview with Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network, Patriots coach Bill Belichick once again gave his thoughts on the trade that sent Randy Moss to the Minnesota Vikings. Lombardi asked Belichick why he felt he needed to deal the wide receiver during the regular season.
“Well, it was a combination of things – part of it was Randy, part of it was our football team, part of it the opportunity to make the trade," said Belichick. "In the end we put it all together in the pot and felt like it was the best thing to do for our team. It was a tough decision and he’s meant a lot to this team but in the end we felt like it was the thing to do."
Lombardi asked Belichick if his relationship with Moss had turned sour this season -- as some reports have suggested -- but the Patriots head coach dismissed that notion, just as he had done during his press conference last Thursday.
PRAGUE -- A night after the Bruins lost their season-opening game in Prague to the Coyotes, 5-2, Claude Julien said that Tim Thomas would be starting in goal for Boston on Sunday. Tuukka Rask allowed four goals to Phoenix in Saturday's losing effort, though one came from a flukey bounce off the boards and another came on a breakaway caused by a Daniel Paille. Julien indicated that the team's plan was to start Thomas in the second game anyway barring an overwhelming effort from Rask.
Additionally, Mark Recchi stated prior to the game that he would be playing on the third line, which is centered by second overall pick Tyler Seguin. Recchi had played on Patrice Bergeron's line, which at one point included Seguin, throughout camp. Rookie Jordan Caron, another former member of the second line in preseason, will return to skating with Bergeron after being scratched in the opener. Blake Wheeler will remain the second line's other wing.
