Lucic will play after missing AM skate
By: DJ Bean

TAMPA -- Bruins forward Milan Lucic was not on the ice for Thursday's morning skate at St. Pete Times Forum, marking his second straight absence from a morning skate after getting hit on the right foot by a Tyler Seguin shot. Despite whatever discomfort Lucic may be feeling, coach Claude Julien confirmed after the skate that the team's regular-season leader in goals will be in the lineup Thursday night vs. the Lightning. 

"There's no issues," Julien said of Lucic. "He's going to be in tonight. During the playoffs, there's certain things you do, and you give guys time off for whatever reason. He's going to be in there, and there won't be any excuses to his game at all. … There's very minor issues when it comes to that." 

Mark Recchi did skate for the B's, marking the first time this postseason that the 43-year-old has not taken his option to have the morning off.

Julien: Bergeron 'getting real close' to return
By: DJ Bean

TAMPA -- Bruins center Patrice Bergeron (concussion) participated in the team's morning skate Thursday at St. Pete Times Forum, doing drills and taking faceoffs as the B's prepare for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals vs. the Lightning. 

Coach Claude Julien said that Bergeron is "feeling pretty good" and is "getting real close," but said that a decision on whether Bergeron is ready for game action will be made either Thursday or Friday.

"He's still day-to-day," Julien said. "Until I'm told that he's cleared -- he obviously had to skate this morning, and we had to see what's going on -- all of this is protocol stuff and everything else that goes with it. I don't want to elaborate more."

Julien said prior to Game 2 that if Bergeron skated in warmups, it would be an indication that he was playing. The coach offered the same message Thursday.

"If you see him out there in the warmup...

Stock on D&C: See how Seguin reacts
By: Anonymous

TSN and Hockey Night in Canada analyst and former Bruin P.J. Stock joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to preview Game 3 of the Bruins-Lightning Eastern Conference finals series.

Asked if he thought coach Claude Julien waited too long to insert 19 year-old Tyler Seguin into the lineup, Stock said he did not have a problem with the coach’s decision. “No, not at all, and you know what? He probably wouldn’t be in there without for [Patrice] Bergeron being injured,” Stock said. “I watched him play a lot during the year, and many times I thought he wasn’t ready.

“A lot of people are excited about his last two games, but 30 games ago were people saying the same thing? He was a frustrating player that was learning a lot of things. … I didn’t know if he was ready.”

Still, Stock was impressed with what he has seen from Seguin. “The last game in the second period he...

Shaq's mom thinks he may return

Speaking before an event in Louisiana, Shaquille O'Neal's mother Lucille said that her son may not be ready to retire yet.

“He went there to help them win a championship, and they didn’t do that this year,’’ his mother told the New Orleans Picayune. “It bothered him so much that he could not play. He felt like he let the Boston team down and the community down, so I could believe he’s going back to Boston. He’s not in a place to be traded or anything like that.’’

O'Neal has a player option on a contract for next season that would pay him the veterans minimum. There has been no definitive word on his plans, although most people within the Celtics organization expect him to retire.

Verducci: Crawford adjustment will take time

Tom Verducci from Sports Illustrated and the Major League Baseball Network joined Dennis & Callahan to talk about the season at the quarter-mark, the Yankees outlook and why pitchers have been ahead of the hitters. He was also asked about Carl Crawford, who has continued to struggle in his first season with the Red Sox.

"He may need an entire season to really get adjusted to Boston and playing in the environment," Verducci said. "Obviously the Red Sox hope it comes a lot quicker, but it is a cultural change. There's no doubt. Where you have to explain yourself after every 0-for-4 every night of the week, it's a difficult adjustment. There's nothing that can prepare you for New York, Boston and I'll put Philly in this category, where the level of accountability is like nothing else in baseball. Some guys, like Edgar Renteria, they aren't comfortable and they never do get comfortable. I think Carl's going to be OK. But it may take longer...
