Tough luck: B's lose shootout, Krejci

Tyler Seguin scored a spectacular back-hander in the shootout but Patrice Bergeron and Michael Ryder both hit the post and Tuukka Rask allowed goals on his first two shots as the St. Louis Blues beat the Bruins, 2-1, Saturday night at TD Garden. 

 

Gregory Campbell's first goal as a Bruin tied the game with exactly seven minutes left in regulation. Halak was aiming for his NHL-leading fourth shutout in 10 games before Michael Ryder found Campbell for the equalizer. Rask stopped David Backes on a great chance in close two minutes after Campbell tied it. 

 

The worst part of the evening for the Bruins was the loss of top center David Krejci with 4:15 left in OT as he was checked into the far center boards by T.J. Oshie and had to be helped off the ice by Zdeno Chara and Andrew Ference. He spent nearly a minute on the ice before heading immediately to dressing room and did not return. Nathan Horton had two goals...

Chung downgraded to out for Sunday

The Patriots have downgraded safety Patrick Chung to out, and the second-year player out of Oregon will be one of eight players who will be designated as inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, the team announced Saturday night. With the decision to sit him down, Chung, who suffered a bruised knee last month against the Chargers, will now have sat for two straight games — he missed last week's game against the Vikings as well.

Patriots make roster moves official

The Patriots have announced they have reinstated Logan Mankins to the 53-man roster, and released both cornerback Terrence Wheatley and linebacker Tyrone McKenzie. Here’s the full text of the announcement from the team:

During his five seasons with the Patriots, Mankins has started 80 regular-season games and nine postseason games.

Patriots grant Tyrone McKenzie his release
By: DJ Bean

Patriots inside linebacker Tyrone McKenzie, a third round pick in 2009 who had been playing on the team's practice squad, has been released to pursue an opportunity on another team's 53-man roster, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. 

 

The news of McKenzie's release comes on the same day that the team released cornerback Terrence Wheatley, and the team has now seen six players drafted in the first three rounds between 2006-2009 not play out their contracts with the Patriots. McKenzie had missed his rookie season with a torn ACL.

Report: Mankins will play, Wheatley released
By: DJ Bean

 The Patriots will activate guard Logan Mankins for Sunday's game against the Browns, according to a report in the Boston Globe. To make room for Mankins on the roster, the team has released cornerback and former second round pick Terrence Wheatley.

 

Wheatley, chosen 62nd overall in the 2008 NFL draft, played sparingly throughout his Patriots career, registering just four tackles in parts of three seasons. With Wheatley's release, Jerod Mayo, Shawn Crable, Jonathan Wilhite, and Matthew Slater are the only 2008 draft picks remaining on the Patriots. The Pats chose seven players in that draft. Wheatley is one of five players taken by the Patriots in the first three rounds between 2006-2009 who did not stay in New England for their entire rookie contract. Tyrone McKenzie, a third-rounder in 2009, is on the practice squad.
