Kluzak on D&C: Get Chara away from net
By: admin

NESN Bruins analyst and former defenseman Gord Kluzak called in to the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to discuss the Stanley Cup finals.

Kluzak said that the Bruins could have won either of the first two games had they played slightly better.

“I think they have had breakdowns at times that have really hurt,” Kluzak said. “I think if they get back to what they can do — and the model is Game 7 vs. Tampa Bay — this thing is very winnable. I'm much more optimistic than I hear you guys were this morning.

"I don't think Vancouver is as good as advertised. I've never been overly impressed with the Sedins. I think [Ryan] Kessler may be hurt, the way that [Johnny] Boychuk hit happened early on in Game 2. I didn't think Kessler was the same player, and I think if you're the Bruins you're trying to be as physical as you can with him because he is the key, in my opinion. I think this is still very winnable....

Green Men on D&C: 'We have no dignity'

Vancouver's Green Men, Force and Sully, stopped by the WEEI studio for a visit with Dennis & Callahan Monday morning while in Boston for Games 3 and 4 of the Stanley Cup finals.

The two Canucks fans clad in spandex bodysuits made a name for themselves by annoying opposing players in the penalty box at Rogers Arena, but the NHL restricted their behavior after they became cult favorites.

"The NHL directly told us: 'No more handstands, you can't touch the glass.' We were told we were not allowed to agitate the players," Force explained. "So, we just have to step up our game and be more creative. It seems to be working. We're getting under a few people's skin."

Diminutive Bruins forward Brad Marchand engaged in a feud with the pair last week. "Marchand gave us a couple of chirps, I got doused with some water," Sully said. "You get that when you ask if he's sitting on phone books."

Mashup: Struggling Bay benched by Mets

Struggling outfielder Jason Bay, whose average is down to .216 (with two home runs and 10 RBIs) after going hitless in his last 17 at-bats, was benched Sunday by Mets manager Terry Collins. "Judging by my results lately, I couldn't say no," the former Red Sox slugger said. "Obviously, I want to play. I like playing. But ... I don't think it could hurt."

Bay has looked impressive in batting practice but has been unable to carry it over into games. "In batting practice, I'm still that guy," he said of his success with the Red Sox and Pirates. "I need to find a way to get that translated to the game."

Since leaving the Sox to sign a big free agent contract with the Mets before the 2010 season, Bay has batted .247 with eight home runs and 57 RBIs in and had stints on the disabled list with concussion and rib cage issues.

Heat take 2-1 series lead with 88-86 win

Miami took a double-digit lead and held off Dallas down the stretch for an 88-86 win Sunday night and a 2-1 series lead in the best-of-seven NBA finals. Dwyane Wade finished with 29 points and 11 rebounds on the way to the victory, while Dirk Nowitzki — who missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have tied the game — ended up with a game-high 34 points and 11 rebounds in defeat. While Wade had a great evening, it was Chris Bosh (18 points) who delivered the game-winner, connecting on a 16-foot jumper with 40 seconds left.

Lapierre: No answer for mocking Bergy

Asked if he had any regrets for openly mocking Patrice Bergeron by sticking his finger in the face of the Bruins center, Vancouver's Maxim Lapierre said everyone should feel to form their own opinion. 

"I've got nothing to answer that," Lapierre said Sunday night during a press availability prior to Monday's Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals at TD Garden. "Everybody has own judgment and that's all right. That's what makes it fun.

"Our focus right now is to win a hockey game. It doesn't matter how you do it."

Lapierre said he expects a more hostile crowd than usual in Boston on Monday night but added he won't be intimidated since he played for the Canadiens against Boston in one of the NHL's most fierce rivalries. 

"It's the Stanley Cup final. I played a lot in Boston with Montreal. It's going to be loud and it's going to be an exciting game," Lapierre said.
