BOSTON -- Jordan Caron scored an empty netter in the game's final minute to give him a hat trick in the Bruins' 5-2 win over Islanders rookies at TD Garden on Wednesday night. Second overall pick Tyler Seguin picked up a pair of assists in the game, his first in a Bruins uniform.
2008 first-round pick Joe Colborne left the game in the third period after an ugly play against the boards. A woozy looking Colborne skated off the ice slowly, leaving a trail of blood. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said after the game that Colborne appeared to have broken his nose and chipped a tooth after getting a teammate's stick to the face.
Colborne is not expected to play in Thursday's game, the second of two between the two teams. In net, Adam Courchaine saved 31 of the 33 shots he faced. The attendance night was 11,571.

Clay Buchholz shook off his worst performance of the 2010 season, allowing just one run in seven innings to lead the Red Sox past the Mariners, 5-1. One outing after he had allowed five runs and nine baserunners in just one inning, Buchholz overcame a struggle out of the gate (a solo homer in the first) to dominate the Mariners for most of the afternoon. He ended up allowing just four hits and striking out six in his outing, improving to 16-7 with a 2.48 ERA.
Adrian Beltre unloaded on a hanger from Seattle starter David Pauley, crushing a solo homer (his 28th of the year) while on his left knee. The Sox also received a two-run double from Victor Martinez and an RBI triple by Ryan Kalish, the first three-bagger of his career.
The victory allowed the Sox to sweep Seattle, heading back from the West Coast roadtrip with 82 wins this year. The Sox thus have clinched their 13th straight winning season.
On Wednesday, the Heisman Trophy Trust announced that the 2005 Heisman Trophy -- forfeited by former USC running back Reggie Bush on Tuesday -- will remain vacated.
"The Trustees of the Trust have been monitoring the NCAA investigation of Reggie Bush and USC since first announced," said the Heisman Trophy Trust in a statement. "We determined that no action was necessary by the Trust unless and until the NCAA acted and issued its report.

As a result of Reggie Bush's decision to forfeit his title as Heisman winner of 2005, the Trustees have determined that there will...
According to a report in the Boston Herald, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Wednesday refused to step back from his comments last season about Randy Moss. Revis referred to Moss as a "slouch" after limiting the All-Pro wideout in both 2009 matchups.
"I called him a slouch because I felt he played like a slouch," Revis said on Wednesday at the Jets practice facility in Florham Park, NJ. "They tried to come after me in the second game. He wasn’t a slouch in the second game but if I said it in January you guys know I said it."
Revis is aware of the comments made by Moss in his postgame press conference following the win over the Bengals Sunday. Moss told the media his entire offseason preparation was...
