The Bruins lost more than a winnable game against a non-playoff team Saturday, as they lost goaltender Tuukka Rask to injury and fell to the Islanders, 3-2, at TD Garden.
Rask left the game in the second period with a lower-body injury and was replaced by Tim Thomas. For more on the injury, click here.
The Bruins got on the board in the first period when Milan scored on the power play, a goal assisted by Brian Rolston for the veteran forward's first point since returning to the Bruins. The Islanders tied it late in the first on a Josh Bailey goal.
After Thomas took over for Rask in the second period, Matt Moulson gave the Islanders a 2-1 lead on the power play. Tyler Seguin tied the game 7:29 into the third period, but the Islanders would regain the lead in the final five minutes on John Taveres' 26th of the...
WALTHAM – The Celtics will at least have one, if not both, of their recently sidelined guards back in action for their showdown Sunday afternoon against Jeremy Lin and the Knicks.
Following the Celtics' walk-through on Saturday afternoon, Doc Rivers said Ray Allen (who missed Friday's win over the Nets due to illness) is probable to return to the lineup against New York. Meanwhile, after Rivers initially said Avery Bradley was doubtful because of a mild ankle sprain suffered in Friday night's win, Bradley said on Saturday that he will definitely playing. Neither guard participated in Saturday's practice.
“I think [Allen] is probable, but again he is still not feeling great,” Rivers said. “They think he is no longer contagious.”
Bradley admitted that there had been some swelling in his ankle, but that it had subsided to the point where he had no doubts about the fact that he would be on the court on Sunday....
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Speaking before his team's first spring training game at JetBlue Park against Northeastern Saturday, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that a platoon in right field with Ryan Sweeney and Cody Ross once Carl Crawford is healthy shouldn't be assumed.
"When the game starts that might be exactly the way it works, so they understand where they are. But as the game progresses, when I say strict platoons, if it’s the fifth inning and we’re up 5-0 and they bring in a left-hander I expect Sweeney to hit," he said. "When they bring in a right-hander I expect Ross to hit. If it’s one of those situations where one guy should be resting regardless of who’s pitching the next day, that guy will probably rest."
The subject came up when talking about Sweeney, a left-handed hitter who has shown little power despite an athletic 6-foot-4, 225-pound frame. The 27-year-old has never hit more...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Carl Crawford said Saturday morning that he doesn't have a timetable as to when he can start baseball activities again, but did report his injured left wrist did feel better than the last few days.
"I was moving too fast, probably," said Crawford, who said being ready for Opening Day is still his goal.
Crawford was put on anti-inflammatory medicine after experiencing pain in his surgically-repaired left wrist two days ago.
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine offered an update after Crawford was examined, reporting that the swelling was down, there was a nice range of motion and there had been progress from the last couple of days.
"I've taken a few days off because my wrist flared up a little bit. Just taking a little precaution and waiting back," he said. "Probably over-working it a little bit and it flared u on me. I just have to cut back a little bit.
"I just felt like I...
Following the Celtics 107-94 victory against the Nets Friday night, Rajon Rondo said the reports that general manager Danny Ainge is aggressively shopping him to other teams are not affecting him. Ainge and coach Doc Rivers both vehemently denied those reports on Thursday and again before Friday's game.
"Its like deja vu," Rondo said. he also added that Rivers' support of him was appreciated.
“I mean, I don't know where people are getting their information from,” Rondo said. “But that was big of Doc to come out with a statement. People are still going to say me and Doc have problems. Even after Doc made that comment he made, or statement he made -- people are still going to say whatever they say. It's just part of life.”
Rondo also said he and Ainge talked earlier this week and that his relationship with Ainge and Rivers is improving through better communication.
“Danny talked to me a couple...
