Julien: Paille 'got dinged pretty good'
By: DJ Bean

Following the team's 2-0 loss to the Panthers Thursday, Bruins coach Claude Julien did not have a definitive update on the status of forward Daniel Paille, who left the game after being hit into the boards by Krys Barch. 

Paille was slow to get up and was woozy in his movements, suggesting he could be concussed. Julien would not confirm a concussion following the game. 

"Not a concrete update, just that, as you know, he got dinged pretty good there, and our doctors felt that it was safer to not let him return and examine him a little bit further," Julien said. "He wasn’t well enough to come back."

The coach added that Paille was examined by doctors following the game. Paille missed three games last month after he was hit in the face with a slapshot by Islanders' defenseman Steve Staois, and had played with a full cage until Tuesday's game, at which point he went back to wearing a visor.

Henton paces Providence past BC

LaDontae Henton scored 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting Thursday night and Providence turned away visiting Boston College, 64-57.

Vincent Council added 17 points for the Friars, who are off to an 8-2 start in their first year under former BC assistant Ed Cooley.

Ryan Anderson scored 16 points and Patrick Heckmann netted 12 for BC (2-7). Heckmann hit just 1-of-9 field goals but canned 9-of-10 free throws. As a team, BC shot just 33 percent from the field.

Providence led by four at halftime, 30-26. BC was within a point, 49-48, with 8:17 remaining after a Jordan Daniels layup. Then the Eagles went on one of the second-half droughts that have plagued them all season. This time, they played the next 4:45 with just one score -- a 3-pointer by Heckman (his only basket). However, the Eagles were still within three when Daniels hit another jumper with 3:32 remaining to make it 56-53. That's as close as they would get, as Providence added to...

Late date: Panthers strike down B's

Tomas Kopecky scored with 2:32 left in the third period to break a scoreless tie as the Panthers beat the Bruins, 2-0, Thursday night at TD Garden. Jose Theodore stopped all 40 shots to hand the Bruins their second straight loss, the first time Boston has lost consecutive games since dropping a home-and-home series with the Canadiens Oct. 27-29. 

The Bruins had their chances in the opening period, outshooting the Panthers, 9-1, to open the game. In addition, they hit three posts in the first 10 minutes as Jose Theodore kept Boston off the board. 

The Bruins also had their chances on the power play but could not convert, missing on all four chances. Kopecky charged the net with under three minutes remaining and Tim Thomas couldn't control the loose puck as Kopecky put the puck in the open net. The Panthers, who lead the Southeast Division, added an empty-net goal with 41 seconds remaining to ice the game. 

The game marked the...

NBA blocks Paul trade to Lakers

Barely three hours after the reported parameters of a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers in exchange for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom, the NBA has stopped the deal from happening.

The Hornets are owned by the NBA and according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, other owners were "irate" at their Board of Governors meeting that the team could trade Paul. The league said in a statement that, "The league office declined to make the trade for basketball reasons."

Several other national reporters also indicated that the deal is off. The Celtics were in the running for Paul, reportedly offering a package that revolved around Rajon Rondo, Jeff Green and draft picks.
