Julien: B's totally flat 'start to finish'

Bruins coach Claude Julien didn't try to sugarcoat his team's 4-2 loss at the hands of the Sabres Thursday night at TD Garden. 

 

"From start to finish, we were totally flat tonight," Julien said. "From first player to the last. We didn't have it. We never seemed to find our game. When your team is flat, it's flat. Prepare for the next game and make sure it doesn't happen."

 

Adding to the frustration was the fact the Bruins had a pair of one-goal leads, with a chance to add to it against Sabres Olympic goalie Ryan Miller, but couldn't find the finishing touch. The Bruins had 40 shots on net but were held scoreless in the third period as they fell for the third time this season to the Sabres. 

 

The Bruins next play in Denver Saturday afternoon against the Avalanche before traveling to Los Angeles for a Monday night date with the Kings.

Outdueled: Miller, Sabres beat B's a 3rd time

Boston College product Nathan Gerbe scored a game-tying power-play goal and Thomas Vanek broke the tie with just under 15 minutes left in the third period as the Sabres beat the Bruins, 4-2, Thursday night at TD Garden. Ryan Miller made 38 saves for the Sabres, who beat the Bruins for the third time in five games this season. 

 

Vanek, who also assisted on the fourth Sabres goal, is red-hot for Buffalo, with five goals and nine assists in his last nine games. The Bruins twice had one-goal leads on tallies by Dennis Seidenberg and Gregory Campbell. Tuukka Rask continues to be a tough-luck goalie as he made 30 saves but took the loss to fall to 4-10-1. 

 

The Bruins now head out on a brief two-game Western Conference trip, playing at Colorado on Saturday afternoon and in Los Angeles Monday night before returning home to host the Panthers next Wednesday night.

Reports: Brady has foot surgery at MGH

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady underwent surgery on his right foot Thursday at Massachusetts General Hospital, according to multiple media outlets. Brady underwent the procedure to repair a stress fracture, one that hobbled him over the course of the 2010 season. According to medical experts, the type of surgery Brady underwent should leave him with a few months worth of rehab, but if all goes well, he should be OK for the start of training camp, if not sooner.

Wakefield not retiring but 'getting close'

Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield, who turns 45 in August, said Thursday that he is more relaxed about his role heading to this season and is not ready to retire yet. 

 

"I don't know, but it's getting close," Wakefield said prior to the Red Sox writers' dinner.

 

The 2010 season was a rough one for Wakefield to swallow as he had to accept a role as middle reliever, long man and spot starter. Wakefield said he's talked with manager Terry Francona to get a better feel of where he stands heading into his 17th MLB season. 

 

"I've had plenty of talks with him in his office about things," said Wakefield, who was 4-10 with a 5.34 ERA in 2010. "Again, you just try to get through the season as unscathed or emotionally unscathed as possible and sometimes that's hard to accomplish and you have to go through the mental ups and downs of a six-month season. We were able to...

Ainge on Big Show: 'Shaq's a warrior'

Celtics president Danny Ainge joined The Big Show for his weekly visit and touched on a number of topics, including injury updates for Marquis Daniels and Jermaine O'Neal.

 

While the team and O'Neal have decided to delay surgery and have him sit out four weeks for rest and rehab on his injured left knee, Ainge's other free agent center acquisition, Shaquille O'Neal, has held down the middle. "Shaq's a warrior," Ainge said. "He's not 100 percent. He knows that J.O is hurting and [Kendrick Perkins] is hurting, even Semih [Erden] is not 100 percent and [Shaq] probably could benefit from some rest himself, but he's out there playing. He's been great for us. He's won some games." 

 

Ainge noted that Shaq has played his role in the twilight of his great career. "Shaq is in in the discussion as one of the great big men of all time in this game and dominant figures ever," Ainge said. "It's...
