Thomas a finalist for Vezina Trophy

Tim Thomas was named as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy on Friday, an award honoring the top goaltender in the NHL.

Thomas -- who won the Vezina in 2009 -- is one of three finalists, joining Roberto Luongo of the Canucks and Pekka Rinne of the Preadtors. 

Thomas is considered the overwhelming favorite to capture his second Vezina following a 2010-11 season that saw the netminder set the NHL record for single-season save percentage with a mark of .938, besting the previous record of .937 set by Dominik Hasek in the 1998-99 season. Thomas had a record of 35-11-9 in 57 games, with a 2.00 goals-against average.

Shaq appears at morning shootaround

Shaquille O'Neal was on the court for the Celtics at their morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden, but he still isn't ready to play in a game. "He’s not ready to play yet but the fact that he’s feeling better and he’s closer, you just bring him on the road," Doc Rivers said. O'Neal spoke briefly as he left the court and said that he's trying to make it back. 

Once again Rivers indicated that Shaq will play when he is physically able. "I’m worried about getting him right and healthy," Rivers said. "There’s no strategic gameplan for not playing him. There’s a medical gameplan for not playing him. Once he can play, he can play." 

In other O'Neal injury news, Jermaine O'Neal said he aggravated his left wrist taking a charge in Game 2. He was wearing a brace the last two days but said he would probably play without it Friday night because the swelling has gone down....

Ference fined $2,500 for gesture

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference has been fined $2,500 by the NHL for making an obscene gesture following his second-period goal in Thursday night's OT win over the Canadiens.

No penalty was assessed at the time, and Ference denied making the gesture when asked by reporters after the game.

 

“Coach just showed me it, and it looks awful,” Ference said . “I just saw it and I can assure you that’s not part of my repertoire. I don’t know if my glove got caught up. I can assure you, that’s not part of who I am or what I ever have been. So it looks awful, I admit it, I completely apologize to how it looks. You guys have covered me long enough to know that that’s not part of my repertoire.

“I was putting my fist in the air,” Ference added. “I’m sorry, it does look awful. I just saw it.”

McShay: Ingram would be 'a steal' for Pats

ESPN NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to give his thoughts on next week's draft. The Patriots -- with three picks in the top 33 and six in the first three rounds -- figure to play a key role in the draft, and McShay thinks a couple of early picks could be in play as trade possibilities.

"There definitely will be a lot of action for that pick, I believe that," said McShay, who told Dennis and Callahan that he does believe the Patriots will trade at least one of the three top-33 picks. "It just kind of depends on who is on the board. I still think that 28th pick is going to be worth something. If we have this quarterback run late in the first round -- and I'm not convinced we are going to -- but if there is and all of the sudden Jake Locker from Washington comes off the board somewhere in the late teens or low twenties and all of the sudden you are looking at Christian Ponder from Florida...

X-rays on Youkilis (shin) negative

Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis left Thursday's game against the Angels after the top of the second inning as a result of a foul ball he slammed off his lower left leg. Youkilis had a 10-pitch at-bat (his longest of the year to date) in the top of the first against Angels starter Tyler Chatwood that culminated in a double play; in the middle of the at-bat, he fouled a ball off what appeared to be his lower shin.

"He’s sore," manager Terry Francona told reporters about Youkilis after his team's 4-2 win over the Angels. "He was X-rayed and they were negative, which is good. He’ll be re-evaluated [Friday]. He’s pretty sore."

With Youkilis out, Marco Scutaro entered the game batting cleanup and playing shortstop. Jed Lowrie slid from short to third.
