Mashup: Guillen 'sad' about Jenks tweet

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said his feelings were hurt by criticism from new Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks last month, but Guillen admitted that his son Oney crossed the line when he tweeted details of a meeting in the manager's office with Jenks. Jenks had criticized his former manager's handling of the White Sox pitching staff, and Oney Guillen responded by suggesting Jenks had problems with his drinking and marriage, and that Jenks cried in a meeting in the manager's office.

 

"When Oney [tweeted] that, the only thing I was upset about [was] clubhouse stuff," Guillen said Thursday at U.S. Cellular Field. "He grew up in baseball, and he knows the clubhouse stuff — whatever happens in there, everybody knows. ... In the past, our clubhouse was a temple. Now you can do what you to do and people find out what happened in the clubhouse. That's not the first time it happened."

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.
