Krejci powers B's in clincher over Sabres

David Krejci scored twice and added an assist as the Bruins beat the Buffalo Sabres, 4-3, in Game 6 Monday night at TD Garden to win their opening-round series, 4-2. Mark Recchi had a goal and an assist and Milan Lucic had a pair of assists as the Bruins advance to the second round for the second straight season. 

 

The Bruins now wait to see who wins the Montreal-Washington series. Montreal forced a deciding Game 7 on Wednesday in Washington by winning 4-1 on Monday. If the Capitals win the series, the Bruins play the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins in Round 2. If the Canadiens pull off the shocking upset, the Bruins will host Philadelphia this weekend in the opener of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Matsuzaka hopes to repay Red Sox

TORONTO -- Speaking after throwing a 69-pitch simulated game at Rogers Centre, Daisuke Matsuzaka explained that he understands the awkward position his conditioning and injuries have put the Red Sox in the past and is looking forward to using his return to the majors as a stepping stone to re-establishing his value.

 

"I'll be really nervous when I first get back out there," Matsuzaka said. "Looking back at this past month I've been such a burden on this team, I think as I get through more and more starts I hope I can repay at them a little bit and do that throughout the season."

 

The pitcher, who made three rehab appearances with Triple A Pawtucket, allowing three earned runs in 16 2/3 innings, striking out 13 and walking one, is slated to make his first big league start of the season Saturday in Baltimore against the Orioles.

 

In the simulated game Matsuzaka faced left-handed...

Belichick: NFL is a 'very unscientific business'

Bill Belichick called in to The Big Show on Monday to check in for his annual post-draft recap. The Patriots were very busy over the three days of the draft, and Belichick said the whole NFL draft process is highly unpredictable.

 

"It's a very unscientific business," Belichick said. "You make the best decision you can and we make them here. They make them throughout the league. There are players that go undrafted that have great careers. There are players that go in the first round that end up not playing very much in this league. I think that's the way it will always be. ... It makes it a little bit unpredictable, but it also makes it exciting, because it gives you opportunity."

 

Belichick and the Patriots traded twice to drop down to pick 27 in the first round, where they selected Devin McCourty out of Rutgers, and he explained the process of "value" in terms of trading in the draft.

Doc: 'One guy's not guarding' D-Wade

WALTHAM -- Celtics coach Doc Rivers admitted on Monday that his team is not trying to stop Dwyane Wade from scoring but wants to see more urgency on defense. Wade scored 46 points and made 16-of-24 shots from the field as the Miami Heat beat the Celtics, 101-92, in Game 4 in Miami on Sunday. 

 

"If it were that easy, he wouldn't be Dwyane Wade," Rivers said. "If I can find a guy who can keep him in front of him, we're signing him. Hopefully, Wyc [Grousbeck] has more money to give and we're going to go get him. It's going to be a team effort and one guy's not guarding that guy."

 

Rivers put his team through a two-hour session -- split between video and on-court practice -- on Monday. The Celtics host Miami on Tuesday at TD Garden, with a win sending Boston into the Eastern Conference semifinals. For more, visit the Green Street blog...
