Bergeron skates, McQuaid in for Game 1
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron skated prior to the team's morning skate Saturday, marking the first time the team's postseason points leader has taken the ice since suffering a concussion in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals vs. the Flyers.

"He went out and just had a light skate this morning," coach Claude Julien said following the team's morning skate in anticipation of Game 1 of the conference finals vs. the Lightning. "That's where he's at now, just a light skate on his own.

"This is something that's just protocol, that he's going through the normal stuff," the coach added. "Today was a light skate on his own, and he just got off the ice when we went on. I don't think there's much more that we can give you except that it can go either way. We're certainly not going to comment on that kind of stuff and just hope that he keeps getting better."

Homers, Buchholz pave way for Red Sox win

NEW YORK -- Home runs by Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Youkilis, along with a fine pitching performance from starter Clay Buchholz, led the Red Sox to a 5-4 win over the Yankees in the teams' series-opener at Yankee Stadium Friday night.

Buchholz only allowed two runs on five hits in his seven innings, striking out seven and walking one while throwing 110 pitches. He was followed up by Daniel Bard and Jonathan Papelbon, who the eighth and ninth innings, respectively.

Papelbon allowed one run in the ninth when Curtis Granderson plated Derek Jeter with a two-out single, but the closer got Mark Teixeira to pop up to third to end the threat and the game. Bard also escaped a tight jam in the eighth, striking out Nick Swisher and inducing a ground out from Jorge Posada with runners on second and third.

The Sox jumped to a two-run lead in the fourth inning against Yankees starter Bartolo Colon thanks in part to Gonzalez' eighth homer of the season...
