Thomas to start for Bruins in NJ
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters Saturday that Tim Thomas, who is coming off a shutout in his season debut last Sunday, will be the starting goaltender when the Bruins take on the Devils on Saturday night.

 

Thomas, 36, made 29 saves against the Coyotes in the 3-0 victory in Prague, his 18th career shutout. Tuukka Rask, meanwhile, allowed four goals in the team’s season-opening 5-2 loss.

 

The game will be the Bruins first since returning from Prague, where they picked up two points in the two-game set with Phoenix. The Devils, on the other hand, have just three points in five games and lost on Friday night to the Avalanche.

Yanks comeback win caps ALCS Game 1

The Yankees used a five-run eighth to post a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the host Rangers Friday night in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.

Texas built a 5-0 lead with a three-run first (all of which came on a three-run blast by Josh Hamilton) and two more runs in the fourth. That was more than enough early for Rangers' starter C.J. Wilson, who took a 5-1 lead into the eighth. But Wilson and a collection of Texas relievers gave it all back in the eighth when the Yankees sent 10 men to the plate and took the lead for good. Robinson Cano had three hits and two RBI for New York, which also got two RBI from Alex Rodriguez and two hits each from Derek Jeter and Marques Thames.

Dustin Moseley (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to pick up the win, while Darren O'Day (0-1) was one of a parade of Texas relievers in the eighth inning that couldn't stop the Yankees' onslaught. Mariano Rivera pitched a scoreless ninth...

The Celtics built a 101-73 lead after three quarters, but the Raptors outscored the C's reserves, 39-16 in the fourth quarter.

 

In his longest outing of the preseason, Von Wafer scored 14 points and made three of his four 3-point attempts. Nate Robinson led all scorers with 22 points. Paul Pierce and Shaquille O'Neal sat the game out, while Delonte West and Stephen Lasme didn't make the trip. West is dealing with back issues, while Lasme, a native of Gabon, stayed home to avoid any visa issues.

 

The game was relatively calm until the third quarter when Glen Davis fouled out and was assessed a technical foul. Toronto's Reggie Evans, Jarrett Jack and Marcus Banks also...
