Horton powers Bruins past Jets
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins put a their off-ice distractions aside Tuesday night and delievered a 5-3 come-from-behind victory over the Jets at TD Garden. 

Nathan Horton, Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci and Milan Lucic all had two-point showings for the Bruins, who improved to 55 points on the season. 

The Jets got on the board at 16:53 of the first period when Andrew Ladd tipped a Zach Bogosian shot past Tuukka Rask. The B's responded shortly after, with Lucic sending a pass to Nathan Horton in front, with Horton tipping the puck past Jets netminder Ondrej Pavelec. Former Bruin Blake Wheeler continued his hot streak by redirecting a shot past Rask 31 seconds into the second period. Shawn Thornton tied it in impressive fashion, with the fourth-liner getting the first penalty shot of his career and picking up his fourth goal of the season. Eric Fehr gave the Jets lead back, but third-period goals from Tyler Seguin, Horton and Benoit Pouliot gave the B's the...

Fox: McDaniels 'doesn't know our offense'

FOXBORO -- During a conference call with the New England media on Tuesday afternoon, Broncos coach John Fox said he's not overly concerned that Josh McDaniels has joined the Patriots as an offensive assistant the week prior to their Divisional Playoff this Saturday night at Gillette Stadium. It was McDaniels who was Tim Tebow's first head coach in 2010, drafting him out of Florida in the first round (25th overall).

Fox said he's not going to spend time this week trying to change his offense just to confuse McDaniels.

"No, because he doesn’t even know our offense," Fox said. "Our offense is completely different. Every organization has a building full of pro scouts [and] scouting departments. Our write ups are fairly big on every player that’s on both teams as it is. You know, it’s really going to come down to Broncos and Patriots."

McDaniels started his first year 6-0 in 2009 before missing the...

Report: Rondo not on Team USA roster

Rajon Rondo withdrew from the Team USA squad that played in the FIBA World Championships in Turkey in 2010 and it seems that he won't be on the Olympic team either in 2012, according to a report on SheridanHoops. The other point guards on the preliminary 19-man roster are Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Deron Williams, Russell Westbrook and in a bit of a surprise, Chauncey Billups.

Rondo initially had a strong camp with Team USA in the summer of 2010 that came right after the NBA finals, but he withdrew citing personal reasons and was the last player left off the team.

Pierce 'surprised' West didn't return

WALTHAM -- Speaking with reporters after practice on Tuesday, Celtics captain Paul Pierce said he was surprised that guard Delonte West didn't return. West signed with the Mavericks just before the start of the season and has started eight of their nine games.

"It was a big surprise because I thought he would be one of the main guys to come back," Pierce said. "I thought he did well in the time he played and in the playoffs. It was a bit of a surprise but I’m happy that he’s found some [comfort] in Dallas. He’s in the starting lineup right now and I wish him the best."

West played in only 24 games for the Celtics last season due to a 10-game suspension to begin the season and a broken wrist suffered early in his comeback. But when he did play, he added toughness and versatility. The Celtics added nine new players in the offseason, including six veteran free agents but West was not among them.

Source: Sox not closing on Kuroda deal

According to a major league source, a report from ESPN's Jim Bowden suggesting that the Red Sox are "closing in on a short-term deal" with free-agent right-hander Hiroki Kuroda is inaccurate, with another source suggesting that such a claim was "baseless."

That assessment came in response to the following from Bowden:

The Boston Red Sox appear to be closing in on a short-term deal with right-hander Hiroki Kuroda to add him to a rotation that already has Jon Lester, Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz and Daniel Bard. This move, along with the trades for relievers Mark Melancon and Andrew Bailey, quickly puts the Red Sox back among the AL’s elite. Kuroda is extremely underrated for the valuable innings he can provide from the back of a rotation.

However, the sources suggested that such a portrayal of Sox talks with Kuroda was inaccurate.

The Red Sox, who thus far this offseason have agreed to minor league...
