Bergeron, Thomas lead Bruins past Devils
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins began the 2012 part of their schedule by doing what they did plenty of in 2011: winning.  

Thanks to a two-goal night from Patrice Bergeron and a typically strong performance from Tim Thomas, the B's defeated the Devils, 6-1, Wednesday in New Jersey. 

David Clarkson opened the scoring for the Devils in the first period, beating Thomas after taking a feed from Zach Parise, but it was all Bruins after that. Gregory Campbell scored his fourth of the season, and Nathan Horton added his 10th to give the B's a 2-1 lead after the first period. 

Patrice Bergeron scored an unassisted breakaway goal following a Devils' power play in the second, and the B's added three more in the third, as they received Bergeron's second of the night and tallies from David Krejci and Shawn Thornton.

The Bruins will return to the Garden Thursday to face the Flames.

Net results: C's grind out 4th straight win

Paul Pierce scored a game-high 24 points while Kevin Garnett and Brandon Bass each had double-doubles to lead the Celtics to their fourth straight win, a 89-70 victory over the Nets Wednesday night at TD Garden. Garnett scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds while Bass had 15 points and 13 rebound for the Celtics, who moved over .500 for the first time this season at 4-3. 

Playing without Ray Allen, who was out with the flu, the Celtics struggled badly in their search for a scoring option beyond Pierce. The Celtics suffered through a miserable second quarter, making just five of their 15 shots from the floor. Boston was outscored, 18-16, in the period and trailed the lowly Nets 35-34. 

But Pierce consecutive threes to spark a 10-0 run midway through the third quarter to give Boston its first double-digit lead of the night, 55-44. Moments later, Avery Bradley, giving Rajon Rondo a break, hit a 3-pointer and then forced a turnover to get...

Ray Allen (flu) out; Keyon Dooling to start

Celtics guard Ray Allen, who leads the team in scoring with 20.0 points a game through the season's first six contests, will miss Wednesday's game against the Nets due to the flu. In his place, Keyon Dooling will get his first start as a member of the Celtics.

"He’s human. He bleeds," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said of Allen. "Everyone takes the minutes. Keyon will start. We’ll sub him out early and he’ll play the 2-1 tonight. He’ll start out at the two and go back to the one and Avery [Bradley] will go to the two."

Dooling is averaging 7.5 points a game in 18.2 minutes and he's been the Celtics' second-best threat (behind Allen) from distance, having made 8-of-18 3-point attempts this season. Dooling is just 3-of-9 from inside the arc.

Pedroia: 2011 was best offensive season

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has an MVP trophy sitting in his Arizona house from the 2008 season, but the three-time All-Star suggested that he suprassed his offensive performance from that MVP season in 2011. In his weekly appearance on The Big Show, Pedroia said that the 2011 season was the best of his career.

In 2008, Pedroia hit .326 with a .376 OBP, .493 slugging mark, .869 OPS, 17 homers, 54 doubles, 20 steals and 118 runs. In 2011, Pedroia hit .307/.387/.474/.861 with 21 homers, 37 doubles, 36 steals and 102 runs. The 28-year-old suggested that he had a more mature approach to hitting and a better understanding of how he could help his lineup, a development best evidenced by his career-high 86 walks.

"To be honest with you, last year, I thought I had a better year than 2008. I walked a lot more. I stole more bases. I didn’t get there with the runs scored, but I think as an offensive player, I remember in ’08, I...
