Stafford hat trick, Boston penalties sink Bruins
By: DJ Bean

Drew Stafford provided all the offense for Buffalo as the Sabres beat the Bruins, 3-2, on Wednesday.

 

The Bruins relinquished the lead twice in the game, as they went up in first and third periods, respectively, on goals from David Krejci and Michael Ryder.

 

Gregory Campbell, Shawn Thornton and Brad Marchand, who make up the popular “Merlot line” tied one another for the team lead with four shots apiece on reigning Vezina winner Ryan Miller.

 

Tuukka Rask made 32 saves on 35 shots and fell to 2-7-1 on the season. The B’s were forced to finish the game shorthanded due to a Milan Lucic unsportsmanlike conduct penalty at 18:22, though they applied significant pressure, including a great opportunity from Patrice Bergeron with Miller down. A brawl broke out following the final horn after Miller took a shot at B’s captain Zdeno Chara in front of the net.

Rondo: 'I expect to play' Thursday

NEW YORK -- Another day, another injury for Rajon Rondo, who sprained his left ankle early in the fourth quarter Wednesday against the Knicks. Rondo rolled his ankle when he tried to plant his foot on a cut. He limped off the court, but returned later in the game. In the locker room after the Celtics 118-116 victory, Rondo was clearly in pain, but he said he would play against the Hawks Thursday. "I expect to play," he said.

 

It likely won't be his choice. Rondo said that he would get the ankle evaluated when the team returned to Boston and go from there. "It’s a little bit of everything," he said with a sigh. "Something new every game."

Celtics Pierce Knicks, win in final second

In a battle of two streaking Atlantic Division foes, something had to give.

 

In a game worthy of the notion that there is, in fact, a budding rivalry between the Celtics -- winners of 10 straight entering Wednesday -- and the Knicks (who had reeled off eight straight W's), the Celtics mounted a furious fourth-quarter charge to claim a 118-116 victory at Madison Square Garden. Paul Pierce dropped a fadeaway jumper over Amar'e Stoudemire with 0.4 seconds left to deliver a road victory to the Celtics.

 

Stoudemire nearly redeemed himself, pouring in a 3-pointer on the other end of the court, but replays showed that the ball was still in his hands as the final buzzer sounded. The basket was waved off, and the Celtics escaped with a narrow victory to run their winning streak to 11.

 

The C's entered the final quarter down by seven points, but outscored New York, 35-26, in the final quarter. The Celtics were...

Red Sox bring back Lenny DiNardo

The Red Sox have agreed to terms on a minor league deal with left-handed pitcher Lenny DiNardo, who pitched for the club from 2004-06. The 31-year-old confirmed the agreement by phone from Fort Myers, where he is working out. He has taken the team's physical, with results of an MRI being the only thing remaining to finalize the deal. DiNardo said that he will be ready as either a starting depth option or as a reliever.
 
The left-hander went 1-3 with a 5.53 ERA in 43 games as both a starter and reliever for Boston. He was selected off waivers by the Oakland A's following the 2006 season, and DiNardo ended up turning in the best year of his career in 2007 under then-Oakland (and now Sox) pitching coach Curt Young. He went 8-10 with a 4.11 ERA in 35 appearances (20 starts) that year.
 
He has spent most of the last three years in the minors with the A's and Royals.
