Seguin to center Jagr and Marchand
By: DJ Bean

When the Bruins acquired Jaromir Jagr, it seemed a question of whether he would play on Boston’s first line or third line. As it turns out, Patrice Bergeron‘s concussion had a big say in the matter, as Jagr took part in his first morning skate with the Bruins on the second line, with Tyler Seguin at center.

The lines in morning skate were as follows:

Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Nathan Horton Brad Marchand – Tyler Seguin – Jaromir Jagr Jay Pandolfo – Rich Peverley – Kaspars Daugavins Daniel Paille – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton

Though Seguin was drafted as a center after playing mostly center in the OHL, he has primarily been a right wing in his time in the NHL. With Bergeron out, he’ll be given more responsibility initially, although the Bruins have lots of players capable of playing center on their roster (...

Rivers on D&C: Jeff Green 'starting to take off'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning and talked about the final month of the regular season, the Mike Rice controversy at Rutgers, and how he almost played for Bobby Knight at Indiana.

The Celtics clinched a playoff berth Wednesday with a 98-93 victory over the Pistons. Jeff Green scored 34 points and hit a key 3-pointer in the final minute, continuing his resurgence after sitting out last season following heart surgery.

“He missed a year last year. You just don’t walk back on the court and play well, especially with the injury that he had,” Rivers said. “I just think it took some time. This is the next phase of his career, and he’s starting to take off.”

NFLPA docs show Pats have $10.2M in cap room

The Patriots have $10,299,937 in cap room as of Wednesday, according to NFLPA documents.

It’s important to remember that teams always want to leave some wiggle room under the cap to allow themselves some financial flexibility. In addition, the rookie contracts have to be figured into the mix as well. But when stacked up against the rest of the league, New England — which currently has 50 contracts on the books — is in better shape than other teams: The Patriots are one of 11 teams with at least $10 million in cap space, and all 32 teams have an average of $9,645.619.19 of cap room.

The team in best shape is Jaguars, who have $28,387,582 in cap space. (In all, there are five teams with more than $25 million in cap room: the Jags, Browns, Bengals, Eagles and Bucs.) Meanwhile, the Rams are on the other end of the spectrum with $506,053. As for the conference champs, the Ravens have $5,356,586 in cap room, while the Super...

Paul Pierce let word slip to WEEI’s Grande & Max after Wednesday’s win over the Pistons that the reason for his absence on Monday was to be on hand for the birth of his first son.
