MONTREAL -- The question of whether the Bruins will make it to the Eastern Conference semifinals remains unanswered, but their opponent should they win Game 7 has been revealed. The Flyers beat the Sabres, 5-2, in Game 7 of their series to advance to the second round. Should the Bruins beat the Habs in Game 7 Wednesday at TD Garden, they would head to Philadelphia, where they would be hosted by the second-seeded Flyers.
There is painful history between the two clubs for the Bruins, of course. Last season, the teams met in the conference semifinals. After leading the series three games to none, the B's let the Flyers win the next four, including Game 7 in which Boston held a 3-0 lead.

MONTREAL -- Moments after losing Game 6 to the Canadiens, 2-1, on a pair of 5-on-3 goals, Bruins veteran Mark Recchi admitted he and his teammates need to do a better job of cashing in on their power-play chances. While the Canadiens scored a pair of two-man advantage goals, the Bruins were 0-for-4 on the power play, making them scoreless in 19 chances during the series.
"We had opportunities, but it wasn't good enough for power play on our end," Recchi said. "Five-on-five, we were terrific. They got a couple of 5-on-3 goals."
Recchi was on the Bruins last year when the team lost its last Game 7 on home ice to the Flyers, 4-3. He and the Bruins have a chance at redemption with a win on Wednesday. If they beat the Canadiens, they again will draw the Flyers in the Eastern semis starting this weekend in Philadelphia.
"It's a big one [Wednesday]," Recchi said. "We'll go get some rest and be...
BALTIMORE -- One of the most impressive runs of starting pitching in Red Sox history came to an end Tuesday night, as Clay Buchholz permitted four runs on a career-high 12 hits en route to a 4-1 loss to the Orioles. The outing snapped a string of nine straight games in which Sox starters had permitted two or fewer runs in five or more innings, tied with a stretch in 1946 for the longest in franchise history.
For the most part, Buchholz (1-3, 5.33) wasn't hit hard. Of the 12 hits he allowed (most by a Sox starter this year), 10 were singles and two went for two bases. But he couldn't keep the Orioles off the scoreboard, permitting single runs in the second, third, fifth and seventh innings.
That proved more than enough offense for the O's behind rookie Zach Britton. The left-hander scattered five hits in six innings, as the Sox scored just once against him. The team squandered a pair of two-out opportunities in the fifth and sixth innings, when...
MONTREAL -- Mike Cammalleri and Brian Gionta scored 5-on-3 goals and Carey Price made 31 saves as the Canadiens beat the Bruins 2-1 Tuesday night at Bell Centre to force a Game 7 Wednesday night at TD Garden.
The game featured several controversial calls, starting with an apparent goal by Brian Gionta just under four minutes into the game when when Tim Thomas lost possession of the puck to his right. But as Gionta poked in the rebound, the play was whistled dead when referree Kevin Pollack lost sight of the puck and the play was ruled no goal.
But with the crowd in a frenzy over the no-goal call, the officials called a pair of penalties on the Bruins. The first was for too many men on the ice when a loose puck hit the skate of Adam McQuaid as he was getting off the ice. Four seconds later, Dennis Seidenberg was called for a slash. Cammalleri capitalized with a scorching slap shot from the right circle that beat Tim Thomas to put the Canadiens...
In his upcoming book, “Play Like You Mean It,” Jets coach Rex Ryan has some nice things to say about Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Ryan recounts what Belichick said to him after New York beat New England in the divisional playoffs to advance to the AFC championship game this past season.
“After the game, Belichick was great. He came up to me and said, ‘That was an unbelievable coaching job; you deserve it and I hope you win the whole thing.’ He really said that, and I could tell he was sincere. People get the wrong message sometimes when I talk about Belichick. I really do respect him. I admire the guy. He has his way of doing things and he stays true to it every single week. I do the same thing, although we’re different types of people in a lot of ways. I may be loud and over-the-top, but we do have similarities. You’re not going to find two more competitive people.”
The book is scheduled to...
