Horton: 'It doesn't get any better'

For the second time in the series with the Canadiens, Nathan Horton sat on the press conference dais after scoring a game-winning overtime goal. But this time, his score in extra time not only won the game, it ended the series and sent the Bruins onto a second-round rematch with the Flyers starting this weekend in Philadelphia. Horton, who won Game 5 in double-overtime Saturday night, blasted a shot past a screened Carey Price with 14:17 left in overtime that won Game 7, 4-3. 

"Yeah, it was pretty nice," said a smiling Horton. "I mean, it felt pretty good. I don’t remember too much. I remember Looch [Milan Lucic] coming up with the puck and I just tried to get open, and I tried putting the puck towards the net. Luckily it got deflected off someone and it went straight in. That’s all I remember. It was pretty special, again, it doesn’t get any better."

The goal also saved the Bruins from the devastating...

Report: Hearing scheduled for Ference
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie, Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference will have a hearing with the league at 11 a.m. Thursday regarding his hit on Canadiens forward Jeff Halpern in the third period of the B's 4-3 overtime win in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. Halpern remained on the ice after colliding with the B's defenseman's shoulder in the Bruins' zone.

"It was pretty solid [contact], actually," Ference said of the play. "I kind of braced myself because I saw him off the side, and I definitely felt him hit me."

Ference maintained that he did not intend to injure Halpern, who seemingly was not significantly injured given his quick return to the game.  

"Oh yeah?," Ference responded when a reporter suggested he may have raised his shoulder. "No. It was like [I expalined]....

Julien: B's wanted another crack at Flyers
By: DJ Bean

Thanks to the Bruins' 4-3 win over the Canadiens in Game 7 Wednesday night, the Bruins will get a shot at redemption against the Flyers. Philadelphia eliminated the B's in the second round last season after Boston held a 3-0 lead in both the series and in Game 7. Following Wednesday night's game, B's coach Claude Julien noted that the team was fighting vs. the Habs for another crack at the Flyers.

"There is no doubt that tonight, we knew winning this game would give us another opportunity to play Philly," Julien said after the game. "If anything, I think it’s going to make it interesting. I think a lot of people are going to be watching this to see how it develops and we’re excited to have that opportunity."  

The Bruins went 3-0-1 against the Flyers in the regular season. The Eastern Conference semifinals will begin Saturday at 3 p.m. in Philadelphia.

Beckett on Scott: Things even out

BALTIMORE -- Red Sox starter Josh Beckett was clearly agitated at the sight of Orioles left fielder Luke Scott standing at home plate to admire his two-run homer to deep right in the bottom of the fourth inning of the Sox' 5-4 loss to the O's. Beckett glared at Scott as he rounded the bases.

After the game, the right-hander -- who had a no-decision after allowing four runs in six innings -- had little to say about Scott's actions. But in his few words, he did offer a message to his counterpart.

"Those things," said Beckett, "have a way of working themselves out."

Scott told reporters after the game that he meant no disrespect with his conduct.

"I caught it, saw it and tossed my bat off the way and went into my trot. ... Just enjoying the moment," said Scott. "I have all the respect in the world for Josh Beckett. He’s one of the best pitchers in the game. And I respect everyone who takes...

Sox take 'roller coaster' loss vs. O's

BALTIMORE -- The Red Sox wasted their most impressive (and indeed, first) comeback of the season, zooming back to tie the game, 4-4, in the top of the eighth after trailing by four runs only to see the game given back to the Orioles just as quickly in a 5-4 loss.

The Sox did nothing through seven innings, as Baltimore starter Jeremy Guthrie helped to shut down the Sox. But down 4-0, the Sox rallied for four straight hits in the eighth, the last a three-run homer to left by Kevin Youkilis to tie the contest.

That brought reliever Daniel Bard to the mound in the bottom of the inning. But Bard said that the game sped up a bit on him as he was suddenly thrust into a tie game. He gave up singles to each of the first three hitters he faced, missing his location badly. He also crossed signals with catcher Jason Varitek for a passed ball. Bard seemed poised to wriggle out of the jam, however, when with runners on second and third and no outs, a ball in the...
