Cory Stillman notched the game-winner against Tuukka Rask in a shootout as the Bruins took a 3-2 loss in third preseason game, their first at TD Garden.
In regulation, both teams went scoreless in the first period with each with the Bruins scoring twice in the second and the Panthers picking up two of their own in the third. Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton provided the offense for the B's, with both of the high-profile newcomers beating Scott Clemmensen in the second. Seguin's tally was the first of his preseason, while Horton had already potted one against the Canadiens on Wednesday night.
Radek Dvorak slid a Tuukka Rask rebound into the Bruins' net at 2:20 of the third period to make it a 2-1 game. The goal broke up a shutout bid by Rask in which the Panthers otherwise failed to capitalize on rebounds. Later in the period, a Horton turnover behind his own net led to Marty Reasoner setting up Nathan McArdle for the...
The Patriots announced late Saturday night that they have have added linebacker Brandon Spikes to the injury report with a calf injury. His official status for the game is probable. The rookie linebacker, who has started the first two games of the 2010 season, has 12 tackles and one pass defensed. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/Patriots.
NEW YORK -- With a 13-8 record after getting shelled by the Blue Jays on Aug. 20, the idea of 20 wins for Jon Lester seemed impossible to fathom. Yet six starts and six victories later, he is now just one more win from achieving a milestone that has gone untouched by a Red Sox left-hander since 1953.
Lester retired the first 12 Yankees batters he faced, cruised through five hitless innings before allowing a Francisco Cervelli single to left in the sixth, and finished the day having logged seven shutout innings while striking out eight, allowing three walks and just two singles (both in the sixth inning) to lead the Sox to a 7-3 victory. Lester improved to 19-8 and dropped his ERA to 2.96 with one start left this year, on Thursday against the White Sox.
The Sox featured a balanced offensive attack that saw David Ortiz deliver a pair of run-scoring singles to push his season RBI total to 98, and that also featured...
The Patriots announced Saturday they have promoted outside linebacker Shawn Crable to the 53-man roster. The 6-foot-5, 243-pound Crable, who was taken with the 78th overall pick in the 2008 draft, has spent his entire career with the Patriots, but has yet to play in a single regular-season game. Crable was sidelined by a shin injury in 2008 that landed him on injured reserve, and last season, a groin injury left him on the IR for the entire year. Crable fills the roster spot that opened when running back Kevin Faulk was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL earlier this week. (The news of Crable's move was first reported Friday by Boston.com.) For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/Patriots.
According to multiple sources within the Providence Police Department, Patriots defensive back Bret Lockett was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with disorderly and failure to move. Lockett was released a few hours later, and a source indicated he has a court date set for next month.
Lockett, a 23-year-old defensive back out of UCLA, was claimed off waivers by the Patriots on Sept. 7, 2009 and finished last season with seven tackles in 10 games before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 9. He returned to the Patriots this year, but has been on injured reserve since Aug. 31 with a chest injury.
