Mike Milbury of NESN, NBC Sports and Hockey Night in Canada made his weekly appearance on Dale & Holley on Wednesday, discussing all things Bruins and his feelings on the NHL All-Star Game.
Milbury was quite direct in speaking about Patrice Bergeron's first career hat trick, which he scored in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Senators. Blake Wheeler appeared to have scored what was ruled Bergeron's second goal, and Milbury wasn't happy with how it was credited.
"The guys that do the scoring have the responsibility to get it right. They have to do everything to get it right. Do they fudge a little on [an assist] once in a while? I bet they do, and I think that's OK, but they've got to be honest and true to it," Milbury said. "Somebody's got to tell me there's a different angle that showed Bergeron scoring the goal, because I watched it several times, and pretty clearly, Blake Wheeler with a...
Chris Mortensen of ESPN joined the Dale & Holley show Wednesday to talk about the Patriots-Jets playoff matchup and the confident chatter coming from the Jets camp, specifically from coach Rex Ryan and cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
Asked if he had ever seen a coach and players more willing to speak their minds than this edition of the Jets, Mortensen said, "No. Never. … Right now, you've got so many stories going on, it's hard to, like, OK, let me roll my sleeves and spend a lot of time wondering if there's a discussion that's going on behind the scenes saying, 'Let's really chatter, yap it up this week,' in a way just to re-energize the team after the butt-whupping they took the last time they were in New England. Because if they take another one, you know, whatever. What's the difference? I've never seen anything like it. I really haven't.
"Listen, when your coach is out there doing it — and...
FOXBORO -- The powerful blizzard that crippled New England on Wednesday didn't keep the Patriots from making practice on Wednesday. As a matter of fact, every single player was on hand, according to coach Bill Belichick.
"They're all here," Belichick said. "We have some experienced northeastern drivers, here."
Many players, coaches and staff stayed at the Renaissance Hotel next to Gillette Stadium to avoid having to commute to the Foxboro through the storm. Last year, linebackers Adalius Thomas, Gary Guyton and Derrick Burgess were late for a Wednesday morning meeting in December because of hazardous driving conditions. They reported to work and were subsequently sent home for not taking the weather into consideration and being tardy.

FOXBORO -- Not surpisingly, Bill Belichick did not not give the Jets any ammunition Wednesday morning when asked to respond to the inflammatory remarks of defensive back Antonio Cromartie and defensive lineman Shaun Ellis. On Tuesday, Ellis said Tom Brady taunted the Jets sideline after a score while Cromartie said that Brady was "an ass----" and followed up by adding "[expletive] him."
"That's all out of our control," Belichick said tersely. "Our job is to get ready to play."
Belichick did admit that he felt there was a line that could be crossed when taking a shot at an opposing player like the Jets did with Brady on Tuesday. "I'm sure there is," Belichick said. "I don't know what it is. My mind is on the New York Jets on Sunday at 4:30. That's what in my mind right now."

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shrugged Wednesday when he was informed of the comments from Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
On Tuesday, Cromartie called Brady an “ass----” and added, “[Expletive] him.”
“I’ve been called worse. I’m sure there’s a long list of people who feel the same,” said Brady, who said that Cromartie is a good player.
“Not everybody has great things to say about our team,” he added. “That’s the way it’s always been.”
Jets coach Rex Ryan also took issue with some of Brady’s body language early in the week, hinting that he taunts and points at opponents after a big play. Cromartie and Shaun Ellis piled on Tuesday.
“He was taunting us,” Ellis said of Brady, He was. ... It wasn’t too much. It’s just his body language and things like that. When they scored, he...
