Thomas to start for Bruins vs. Sens
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas did not participate in the Bruins' optional morning skate in Ottawa on Saturday, but Claude Julien told reporters that the 36-year-old netminder will be in goal for the B's when they take on the Senators on Saturday night. 

 

Thomas has won all five of his starts this season, allowing just three goals in the process. He currently leads the NHL with a 0.60 goals against average and a .981 save percentage. He is tied for the NHL lead with two shutouts. Tuukka Rask, who started the season-opener in Prague, has lost each of his two starts this season.

Shaq suffers bruised knee in win

Already down Jermaine O'Neal with swelling in the left knee and Kendrick Perkins out for another several months, the Celtics front court suffered another potential blow on Friday night when Shaquille O'Neal left with just over five minutes remaining with a bruised right knee. 

 

O'Neal collided with Amar'e Stoudemire in the fourth quarter and left with 5:11 remaining in the contest. He did not return.

 

"I don't know," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said afterward. "I'm not sure. That collision with him and Stoudemire, he clipped [Stoudemire's] shin. I saw that. It didn't look good, I can tell you that, when he was walking off the floor." O'Neal said after the game that he didn't believe the injury was serious and that he did not expect to miss any time. 

 

As for Jermaine O'Neal, the center had swelling in his left knee following the loss in Cleveland on Wednesday. He had an...

Rondo's triple double leads C's past Knicks

The Celtics capped a dramatic week with a 105-101 win over the Knicks on Friday night at the Garden behind a triple-double from Rajon Rondo, who had 10 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high 24 assists. The win leaves the Celtics 2-1 after the first week of the season, which also included a hyped win over Miami, a letdown loss against the Cavaliers and a locker room fight between Delonte West and Von Wafer.

 

Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 10 rebounds, his third straight double-digit rebounding effort to open the season. Paul Pierce also had a big night with 25 points and 14 rebounds.

 

The Celtics were without Jermaine O'Neal (wrist) and lost Shaquille O'Neal late in the fourth quarter. Shaq limped off the floor and headed to the locker room. He did not return. When Glen Davis fouled out, Nate Robinson replaced him, giving the Celtics a small lineup. Garnett also fouled out in the final minute, which left Pierce as the...

Wafer denies incident, Rivers confirms

Von Wafer tried to downplay the incident that occurred between him and Delonte West at practice Friday. "I don’t know what’s going on but you’ve got to talk to Doc [Rivers] and Danny [Ainge] about that," Wafer said before the Celtics game with the Knicks. "What happened?" Pressed further, Wafer continued to deny that an altercation took place. "I don’t know nothing about it," he said. "First time hearing about it." 

 

Both Ainge and now Rivers have confirmed that there was a fight between West and Wafer after practice Friday, the second incident between the two in the last week. "There was a fight and that’s all you need to know," Rivers said. "I’m going to leave it alone, but obviously I’m not real thrilled with it. We’ll handle it." Rivers went on to say that it shouldn't have been made public. "It should stay inside the...

Harangody active first time, J-O sits

After two sluggish games to start the season, Jermaine O'Neal - playing with torn cartilage in his left wrist - is getting the night off against the New York Knicks. Rookie Luke Harangody is active for the first time this season in three games. 

 

O'Neal was just 1-for-5 in the first two games, scoring just three points. Harangody, drafted in the second round (52nd overall) last June out of Notre Dame, was named to the AirTran Airways All-Summer League first team after averaging 16.6 points and 6.8 rebounds in July. 

 

The Celtics will stick with the same starting lineup of Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, Shaquille O'Neal, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett as they look to bounce back over .500 against New York.
