NHL, NHLPA to meet Sunday
By: DJ Bean

According to multiple reports, the NHL and players' association will meet on Sunday face-to-face after spending much of Saturday on conference calls discussing the league's latest proposal for a new collective bargaining agreement. 

TSN's Darren Dreger reports that the discussions could turn into negotiations on Sunday, but that Saturday's talks were "informational" with no negations taking place.

Pats waive Brace, add Cunningham, sign 2

The Patriots have waived defensive lineman Ron Brace. The 6-foot-3, 330-pounder, a second-round pick out of Boston College in the 2009 draft, had four tackles (two solo) in 10 games played with the Patriots this season. Brace had struggled with injury for a large portion of his career with New England -- he started the 2012 season on the physically unable to perform list, and has been inactive for most of the year.

Brace, 26, has played in 39 NFL games with seven starts and has accumulated 42 total tackles. In addition, the Patriots have activated defensive end Jermaine Cunningham -- the Florida product recently finished a four-game suspension. And the team also promoted wide receiver Kamar Aiken and cornerback Malcolm Williams from the practice squad.

Cunningham, 24, has played in 11 games with three starts in 2012 and has 24 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two fumble recoveries. He originally joined the Patriots as a second round (53rd overall...

Heckmann, Anderson lead BC past HC

Patrick Heckmann scored 19 points, including a pair of 3-pointers in a 15-0 second-half run, and Ryan Anderson had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Boston College to a 70-60 victory over Holy Cross on Saturday afternoon at Conte Forum.

Olivier Hanlan added 14 points for the Eagles (7-5), who avenged a 22-point loss a year ago.

Eric Obeysekere scored 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting while Dave Dudzinski tallied 15 points for Holy Cross (7-6).

BC led by five at the half, 35-30. After HC closed to within a pair at 37-35, BC embarked on a 15-0 run that included a pair of 3-pointers from Heckmann. HC's Malcolm Miller (13 points) ended the run when he got free for a dunk with 9:30 remaining, but the damage was done. The Crusaders got no closer than 10 the rest of the way.

The Eagles hit 10-of-24 3-pointers (41.7 percent), led by Heckmann's 5-of-7. For a team that came in hitting just 31 percent from long range, it was a big boost.

Report: Gronk returns Sunday vs. Dolphins

FOXBORO -- After missing his last five games with a broken left forearm, Rob Gronkowski will return to action on Sunday in the season finale against the Dolphins, according to a report from CSNNE.com's Tom Curran. 

Curran reports via his Twitter page that source indicates Gronkowski will play for the first time since breaking the forearm on the final extra point of New England's 59-28 win over the Colts on Nov. 18 at Gillette Stadium. Gronkowski returned to practice on Dec. 14 and has participated in all seven practices since, but he has been inactive for games against the 49ers and the Jaguars. 

Coach Bill Belichick and Gronkowski himself said this week that the Pro Bowl tight end would only return when medically cleared to do so. Gronkowski was limited in all three practices this week and was listed as "questionable" on Friday's official injury report.

Cole 'doubtful', 20 Pats 'questionable'

FOXBORO -- Defensive back Marquice Cole (finger) missed his second straight practice Friday and is listed officially as "doubtful" for Sunday's regular season finale with the Dolphins at Gillette Stadium. 

Tight end Rob Gronkowski was again officially listed as "limited" Friday and is one of 20 Patriots "questionable" for Sunday. The Patriots practiced outdoors on the main stadium field in sweats and shells for a second straight day in an effort to get ready for the bitter cold and wind expected late Sunday afternoon for kickoff. This is the third straight week Gronkowski has been listed as "questionable" on the Friday injury report as he attempts to return from a broken left forearm suffered on Nov. 18 against the Colts. 

For the Dolphins, starting wide receiver Davone Bess will miss his third straight game with a bad back and was ruled out by Miami on Friday. 

Here is Friday's complete...
