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...

Schilling: 'Pissed' about bin Laden funeral

Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling called in to the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to offer his views on the death of Osama bin Laden. While he was delighted that the American military finally hunted down and killed the 9/11 mastermind and longtime terrorist, Schilling said his only disappointment comes in that bin Laden was given a quick burial at sea, in accordance with Muslim tradition.

"I'm pissed," Schilling said. "Because I can't fathom why we would honor the Muslim traditions for a guy who Muslims have been telling us for 10 years doesn't represent the true Muslim faith, and our government has been telling us the same thing."

Added Schilling: "Who were they worried about offending, radical Muslims? Because any true Muslim has told us for the last 10 years that the radicals like Osama bin Laden don't represent them. It's like calling Adolf Hitler a Christian. And again, I understand to some degree why...

Mashup: Philly fans show patriotism at game

Fans in Philadelphia at Sunday night's Phillies-Mets game reacted to the news of Osama bin Laden's death by breaking out into "USA" chants. The players on the field did not initially understand the patriotic fervor, as they had no access to the news. David Wright of the Mets was standing on second base in the ninth inning. He was pleased to eventually find out the reason. “I don’t like to give the Philly fans too much credit,” Wright said, “but they got this one right. It’s a proud moment to stand out there and you’ve got 45-50 thousand people chanting. That was pretty special.”

Sen. Brown on D&C: 'Big day for America'

Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown joined the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the American military's raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistani hideout that ended in the death of the world's most-wanted terrorist.

"Certainly a big day for America and our allies," the Wrentham Republican said. "I want to commend President Obama and President Bush and our military intelligence folks and obviously the operational forces that executed it. What it tells me, as you've been referencing, is that if you're a terrorist, and you want to kill people on American soil, regardless of when we get you back, we're going to do it."

Added Brown: "This is something that's been ongoing through a couple of administrations, and the effort to go and get this guy, and show him and others that, once again, if you're going to do what you did, we're going to come after you, whether it's tomorrow, next year, five years, 10 years from now....

Pres. Obama announces bin Laden dead
By: admin

Osama bin Laden, the head of al-Qaida and the man described as the man behind the 9/11 attacks on the United States nearly 10 years ago, is dead. President Barack Obama addressed the nation from the White House late on Sunday night to announce that an eight-month undertaking came to fruition on Sunday, when a small team of Americans killed the terrorist at a compound in Pakistan.

"Justice has been done," Obama said.
