Chiarelli: No more extensions during season
By: DJ Bean

Meeting with the media before Monday's game to discuss Shawn Thornton's two-year contract extension, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said the team will not extend any more players before the end of the season. 

"The rest we've put off until after the season," Chiarelli said. "I've spoken to all of them, and I want them to focus on hockey, so we're not doing any more until after the season."

In addition to Thornton, the team has given contracts to Rich Peverley, David Krejci and Johnny Boychuk, all of whom were in the last years of their deals. 

Chiarelli's announcement means Chris Kelly, Daniel Paille, Brian Rolston, Greg Zanon, Joe Corvo and Mike Mottau will become unrestricted free agents at the end of the season. Benoit Pouliot and Tuukka Rask will be restricted free agents.

O'Neal to have surgery, miss season

According to a report from Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, Jermaine O'Neal will have season-ending surgery on his left wrist.

The Celtics have been without O'Neal since Feb. 20. The 33-year-old considered having surgery on the wrist after last season but decided against the procedure. O'Neal played in just 24 games last season and 25 this season after signing a two-year, $12 million deal in July 2010. The veteran has averaged 5.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in his 49 games with the Celtics.

Uneven performances by Doubront, Aceves

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Felix Doubront experienced an up-and-down performance in the Red Sox' 8-4 loss to the Twins Monday at JetBlue Park. The fifth starter candidate allowed two runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings, striking out three and walking one while throwing 74 pitches (49 strikes).

"I didn't see that nastiness 1-2 [count], that stuff that differentiates a lot of guys," Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said. "I would like to see if he has it. I liked a lot, and I wished for more."

Doubront had only allowed two runs in his previous three outings, having come off a four-inning, two-hit performance against the Yankees.

Also struggling was set-up man Mark Melancon, who gave up three runs on three hits in his only inning.

"Melancon outing? I thought he backed up the bases pretty well. He had that down," Valentine said when asked about the reliever, whose ERA stands at 9.00. The manager cited Melancon's...
