Doc: 'There's a chance' Shaq plays Game 2

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Doc Rivers met with the media before Celtics practice on Monday, and was asked about the possibility of Shaquille O'Neal returning for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Heat.

"I think right now there's a chance," Rivers said. "We'll see how it goes. He's feeling a lot better so we'll see."

Rivers said before the game on Sunday that O'Neal -- who is battling right calf and Achilles tendon injuries -- was "getting very close" to a return.

“Honestly, we had to actually make the decision today so that’s better than what we had to do in the past," Rivers said Sunday. "He’s getting close. Maybe next game. If not, I would say, for sure, Game 3.”

Pierce: 'Definitely worried' about suspension

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Paul Pierce — who declined to speak to reporters following Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Heat — met with the media before the Celtics' practice Tuesday on the campus of the University of Miami. Pierce was ejected on Sunday after picking up his second technical foul, which was assessed after he exchanged words with Dwyane Wade following an attempt by Wade to run through a screen set by Pierce.

But it was the first technical called on Pierce that has raised the idea that action from the NBA might be administered. Pierce appeared to attempt a head butt on James Jones after the Miami swingman aggressively fouled Pierce. Pierce told the media that he expected to hear from the NBA sometime on Monday, but didn't feel his actions warranted further action. He did, however, admit that there is always worry whenever the league is investigating the possibility of discipline.

"It's always a concern when...

Julien: Bin Laden 'went through my mind'

PHILADELPHIA — Bruins coach Claude Julien says he has given thought to what the atmosphere will be tonight before Game 2 at Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers still show a video of Smith — who died in 1986 — singing “God Bless America” in lieu of “The Star Spangled Banner” for good luck before important games. The video of her performance is now accompanied by Lauren Hart, daughter of the late Hockey Hall of Fame broadcaster Gene Hart, the longtime voice of the Flyers.

That will no doubt be the case tonight as America celebrates the death of terrorist Osama bin Laden, with people gathering and chanting "USA, USA, USA" and singing "God Bless America."

“That’s something that went though my mind this morning, no doubt about that,” Julien said. “When something major like that happens, I guess all the attention is drawn that way but our guys this morning seemed fine. In...

Bob Sweeney on D&C: No closure for family

Former Bruins forward Bob Sweeney joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to discuss his family's reaction to the death of Osama bin Laden. Sweeney's sister-in-law Madeline Amy Sweeney was a flight attendant on one of the planes that was hijacked and flown into the World Trade Center as part of the 9/11 attacks 10 years ago.

"There's a little bit of relief, but as you alluded to, I don't think it's the celebration that's gone on across the country," said Sweeney, an Acton native and Boston College product who spent six of his 10 NHL seasons with the Bruins (1986-87 through 1991-92). "There is definitely relief, but I wouldn't say there's total closure."

Added Sweeney: "I guess what they say [is], What comes around goes around. He finally got his due."

Amy Sweeney was on American Airlines Flight 11 and used an airphone to alert authorities as to what was happening before the plane crashed into the...

Boucher in net, Pronger game-time decision

PHILADELPHIA -- After allowing five goals on just 23 shots in Game 1 Saturday, Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette announced Monday morning that Brian Boucher will get a second chance and will start Game 2 tonight against the Bruins at Wells Fargo Center. 

"Brian will go back in net today," Laviolette announced after the Flyers pregame skate. "Today is a game, for me, where we all get to go back in there and right some wrongs, so everybody gets an opportunity. He's deserves it." 

The Flyers have been in crisis mode with their goaltending in the playoffs so far, with Laviolette changing goalies midgame afour times in the first eight playoffs games. He's yanked his starter six times in the Flyers' last 14 postseason games, dating back to last year's Stanley Cup finals against the Blackhawks. 

The Flyers could be without two of their top players tonight as defenseman Chris Pronger and forward Jeff Carter both...
