Neely: Home ice should give B's an edge

Bruins president Cam Neely told WAAF's Greg Hill on Thursday morning that the home-ice advantage afforded Boston for Friday's Game 7 should mean a big edge for the Bruins.

"That's why you play all year — for home-ice advantage," Neely said. "And it should be for us. We've been in this position before — in the first round, I think we learned a great deal from it. We understand that as the game goes on, you want to try and separate yourself from the other team, and that's what we want to do [Friday] night."

Neely also addressed a variety of other topics, including the team's struggles on the power play, the Tampa crowd and the importance of putting the puck on the net. Here are a few more highlights from the Q&A:

On the Bruins power-play troubles: "I know we'll have more discussions about it today, and maybe [Friday]. Special teams for us last weren't as good as...

Rain, Tigers can't stop Red Sox

For the second straight game, the Red Sox put up two touchdowns worth of runs, this time beating the Tigers, 14-1, in a game that was called after a 55-minute rain delay in the home half of the eighth inning, Thursday at Comerica Park. This comes one day after beating the Indians, 14-2, in the series finale at Progressive Field.

All nine Red Sox starters got a hit in the win with each outfielder (Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury, Josh Reddick) producing three RBI to pace the offense.

The continued offensive production nearly overshadowed a quality outing from Alfredo Aceves in his first win as a starter this season. For the second straight start as an injury replacement, Aceves kept opposing batters at bay, throwing six innings of one-run ball while allowing five hits and two walks and striking out six.

Crawford (4-for-5, 3 RBI) struck a two-run triple in the third and had another RBI three-bagger in the seventh. After knocking...

Julien not thinking about Boucher
By: DJ Bean

BEDFORD -- One day after a complaint about officiating may have suggested Guy Boucher could be getting to him, Bruins coach Claude Julien said Thursday at Hanscom Field that he is not concerned with what the Lightning head coach is saying. 

Boucher called referee Eric Furlatt "lopsided" against the Lightning prior to Game 6 in Tampa Bay, and after a game in which the Bruins weren't satisfied with the four penalties called against them, Julien said that "hopefully what was said [by Boucher] didn't have any impact" on the officiating. Boucher fired back in his press conference by pulling out the box score and counting that the Bruins were penalized less than the Lightning. 

After the team landed in Bedford, Julien declined to take the semi-war of words any further.

"I'll tell you what," the coach said. "I've been around this game too long to worry about what's going on on the other side. Right now I...

McDonald to DL, Reddick recalled

Darnell McDonald has been placed on the disabled list with a left quad strain. McDonald is off to a very slow start to the 2011 season, batting just .150 with one RBI in 21 at-bats.

Josh Reddick has been recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket to take McDonald's place on the 25-man roster. Reddick has hit 12 home runs in 44 games with Pawtucket this season with an OPS of .871.

Remy: Lester 'on top of his game'

NESN analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday to discuss the Red Sox, who stand a season-best five games over .500 (27-22) after a 14-2 win over the Indians on Wednesday.

Jon Lester improved to 7-1 on the season with six scoreless innings in the rout of Cleveland, and even with the strong start of Josh Beckett and recent efforts from Clay Buchholz it is Lester who Remy views as the ace of the staff.

"He's just on top of his game," said Remy of Lester, who leads the American League with his seven victories. "He had a rough outing against the Cubs over the weekend when he gave up the 12 hits, but yesterday he pitched that game like it was a 1-0 game and he was outstanding."

David Ortiz hit his 10th home run of the season, and is ranked eighth in the AL in slugging and OPS. Remy was asked if there was a specific reason for the fast start of Ortiz, who hit .143 in April of 2010...
