Eight a plenty: B's blast Lightning

David Krejci scored twice and six different Bruins scored at least once as the Bruins romped to a 8-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday night at TD Garden. Michael Ryder, Mark Recchi, Milan Lucic, Blake Wheeler, Shawn Thornton and Dennis Seidenberg also scored for the Bruins, who have outscored the competition, 11-1, in the last two games. 

 

Tim Thomas allowed only one goal, a score by Victor Hedman, with 15:14 left in the third to spoil his bid for a second straight shutout and his fifth of the season. 

 

The game also marked the return of Marc Savard after missing the first 23 games with post-concussion symptoms. He had one shot in just over 15 minutes of ice time and centered the third line with Tyler Seguin and Ryder.

Report: Sturm trade dead for time being
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie, the deal that would send Bruins forward Marco Sturm to the Kings is up in the air due to medical concerns. Sturm is coming off a second major knee surgery and is weeks away from being able to play in games. 

 

Sturm had reportedly waived his no-trade clause to facilitate the deal. McKenzie is reporting that there is "no deal in place at this time" and that there is uncertainty over whether a deal could be completed.

Savard makes season debut for B's
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Marc Savard will make his long-awaited season-debut on Thursday night when the Bruins take on the Lightning. Savard will center Tyler Seguin and Michael Ryder, while Jordan Caron is a healthy scratch for the first time since the season-opener on Oct. 9. Caron missed two games last weekend with the flu.

 

Savard met with Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli and coach Claude Julien Thursday to determine the center's status after he skated earlier in the day. 

 

“When I am able to play, I can’t wait," Savard said before the meeting on Thursday. "It’s going to be an exciting time."

 

Savard has missed the beginning of the season with post-concussion symptoms. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins.

Report: Pats claim RB Thomas Clayton

The Patriots have claimed running back Thomas Clayton on waivers for a second go-round in New England, according to ESPN. Clayton, who was with the Patriots in the preseason and for the first two months of the 2010 season before he was cut, is a 5-foot-11, 225-pounder who was drafted by San Francisco in the sixth round of the 2007 draft out of Kansas State. He's played for the 49ers, Patriots and Browns, and had zero rushing yards in two games with Cleveland this season before he was waived by the Browns on Wednesday.

Source: Red Sox ready to tender Papelbon

According to a major league source, the Red Sox will almost certainly tender a contract to Jonathan Papelbon (“unless something cataclysmic happens in the next few hours”), making him eligible for a final round of arbitration. Papelbon, who made $9.35 million in 2010 (his second season of arbitration eligibility), and may be in line to make just more than $11 million for ’11. If the Red Sox had chosen to non-tender Papelbon, he would have been eligible for free agency. Thursday is the deadline for teams to tender contracts to players eligible for arbitration.
