Wind, snow expected for Pats-Bears

Wind gusts of up to 50 miles an hour are expected for the 4:15 p.m. ET kick-off between the Patriots and Bears at Soldier Field. Snow began at about 5 a.m. local time in Chicago, forcing the grounds crew to clear the tarp five hours later. 

 

Winds out of the north-northwest are expected to make the mid-20 temperatures feel like 11 above, better than the forecast that was calling for far more frigid conditions. Those conditions are expected on Monday, with temperatures hovering around zero and wind chills of 20 below. Not helping matters is the fact that the blue tarp has been on the newly sodded field since Thursday, not allowing the field to breath or get any sun. The field was re-sodded two weeks ago. 

 

Recent history shows the Patriots do not mind the snow. They are 9-0 in snow games under coach Bill Belichick. For more, visit the Patriots team page at ...

Theo: 'We're not going to apologize' for deal

Speaking at the press conference to announce the signing of outfielder Carl Crawford Saturday morning, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein talked about his team's approach when committing to Crawford's seven-year, $142 million deal.

 

“We also have to look at our situation where we’re competing within a division, especially with a team, that has significant resources, so we have to do the best to compete,” Epstein said. “I know this is a significant long contract, I don’t think this is an irresponsible spend at all. If you look at it, our discipline over the years, our reliance on young players, the acquisition of someone like Adrian Gonzalez making $6.3 million, puts us in a position to do this.

 

“If you look at the biggest contracts in the history of the game, you have to go really far down the list to find one that we’ve done. This is the first contract of this nature that we...

Julien: Hit on McQuaid 'definitely uncalled for'
By: DJ Bean

In his postgame press conference, Bruins coach Claude Julien called Jody Shelley's hit from behind on Adam McQuaid "definitely uncalled for" and that he didn't know what the intent of the play was. McQuaid and Shelley were racing after an iced puck when Shelley pushed the B's defenseman. The momentum carried McQuaid into the boards head-first, and the 24-year-old blueliner remained on the ice as play was stopped. 

 

"I looked at it again and personally, I didn’t think there was any need for it," Julien said. "I don’t know what [Shelley's] intention was, but certainly, there was no need for that at all and I think that’s one of the things we’re trying to get out of game.

 

"I know [Jody] Shelley a little bit from a long time ago and he’s actually a good person and, to me, he’s a tough guy. I don’t know that he’s purposely gone out there to...

Richards, Flyers beat Bruins in OT
By: DJ Bean

Mike Richards scored his 11th goal of the season with three seconds left in overtime to sink Tim Thomas and the Bruins, 2-1, in on Saturday. 

 

With the B's trailing in the third, Nathan Horton picked up a puck at the hashmarks and beat Flyers netminder Brian Boucher glove-side to tie the game at one. It was his 11th goal of the season. 

 

UNH product and former second overall pick James van Riemsdyk got the Flyers on the board in the second period, firing a wrist shot that tipped off of Thomas' glove and in. van Riemsdyk nearly beat Thomas in overtime, but the B's netminder recovered to  grab the slow-moving puck. 

 

The Bruins next play in Buffalo on Wednesday. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins
