Bruins recall Kampfer, Caron
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron from Providence Saturday night. The B's had sent the two players down Wednesday in order to get them some game action, with both players playing for Providence Friday and Saturday.

Caron had been a healthy scratch for the seven game prior to Wednesday's move, while Kampfer has played five games this season, regularly serving as the team's seventh defenseman. 

Both players will travel with the team on their upcoming road trip.

Yard work: B's rake Leafs, point streak 14

Chris Kelly scored on a perfect pass from Rich Peverley with just under seven minutes left in the second period to give the Bruins the lead for good in a 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs at TD Garden Saturday night. Tuukka Rask stopped 21-of-22 shots on the night to move over .500 on the season with a 4-3-1 record. Milan Lucic added two assists and has 10 points in four games against Toronto, all Boston wins. 

After a scoreless first, the Bruins took a 1-0 lead when David Krejci fired a shot from between the circles past James Reimer. Mikhail Grabovski tied the game just 48 seconds later. That set the stage for Kelly's game-winner, his 10th goal of the season. The Bruins added insurance in the third as Johnny Boychuk fired a slap shot from the high slot that beat Reimer just over three minutes into the period. Nathan Horton added his seventh of the season on a wrister from the slot with just over five minutes for the final tally of the night.

Sources: Kuroda in play for Red Sox

According to multiple sources, the Red Sox have interest in free agent pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, with the 36-year-old open to playing in Boston.

The acceptance by Kuroda to play with the Red Sox is a change of course from his stance during the non-waiver trade deadline, when the right-hander told the Dodgers he would block any deal by Los Angeles. The Red Sox had originally identified Kuroda as one of their top targets at the non-waiver trade deadline, along with Ubaldo Jimenez and Erik Bedard, before learning that the pitcher would be taking advantage of his no-trade clause.

According to one source, while the Red Sox have interest in Kuroda any legitimate attempt at signing the hurler would be contingent on the organization gaining budgetary flexibility through other offseason moves. Kuroda won't demand the kind of contract free agent pitcher C.J. Wilson (or even Mark Buehrle) might land, but his productivity and reliability throughout four...

Patriots release Price, add McDonald

The Patriots announced that they have released wide receiver Taylor Price, a third-round pick in 2010, and promoted offensive lineman Nick McDonald from the practice squad. Price caught three passes for 41 yards in last year's regular-season finale but was never able to break through and make an impact.

McDonald has been on the Patriots practice squad for most of the season. An undrafted free agent out of Saginaw Valley State, McDonald was signed by the Packers after the 2010 draft and has yet to see action in an NFL game.
