Bruins shut out in Minnesota

Hockey Day in America was a day the Bruins might want to forget, as they lost their second consecutive game of a six-game road trip Sunday afternoon when they fell to the Wild, 2-0, at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

Boston was doomed by a pair of second period Wild goals. Chad Rau gave the Wild the first lead of the game off a wrist shot in transition 10:15 in the middle frame. Minnesota native Matt Cullen doubled the Wild lead with a power-play goal a little over five minutes later.

The Bruins put together a better effort offensively than they did in Winnipeg, but a hot goaltender spoiled their afternoon. Niklas Backstrom put together an outstanding game for the Wild in net, making 48 saves on the afternoon to shut out the Bruins. Tim Thomas stopped 27-of-29 Minnesota shots.

Boston will attempt to get back in the win column on Wednesday night when it faces off against the Blues at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.

Garnett out for personal reasons

Kevin Garnett will not be in the Celtics' lineup for their game at Detroit on Sunday due to a family issue and he may not be back with the team in time for Monday's game in Dallas. This is only the second game Garnett has missed this season. The other was also against Detroit last Wednesday.

Chris Wilcox will start in his place. He's scored 37 points over the last three games and has seen his role increase with the absence of Garnett and Brandon Bass, who is out with a knee injury.

Beckett: 'I had lapses in judgment'

FORT MYERS -- Starter Josh Beckett, in his first extended conversation about the Red Sox' September collapse and his role in it, discussed the disappointment of missing the playoffs and acknowledged that he had "lapses in judgment" in terms of his clubhouse conduct. At the same time, while acknowledging that he did gain weight over the course of last season, he said that physical conditioning was not an issue for him last year, and that he "was ready to pitch every time" he took the mound, including a September stretch in which he went 1-2 with a 5.48 ERA in four starts (he missed two due to injury).

"Nobody was more disappointed than the players were. I didn’t pitch well. That was the bottom line. My last two starts against Baltimore, they weren’t good," said Beckett. "I’m not saying we didn’t make mistakes because we did make mistakes in the clubhouse. But the biggest mistake we made was -- the...

Lester: Last year will 'make us better'

FORT MYERS -- Jon Lester acknowledged Sunday morning - on reporting day for Red Sox pitchers and catchers - that he regrets not being as supportive as possible for his teammates last September when the team failed to make the playoffs. Lester - criticized for eating fried chicken during games - said he plans on making more of an effort on being in the dugout late in games he doesn't pitch.

"I think the biggest thing is I'm ready to move on from it," Lester said. "I've learned from it. It's something I'm not proud of. The biggest thing is you learn from your mistakes. And I'm looking forward to starting new this year and being [a] leader. Just being a better teammate, being on the bench. The starting pitchers do have a lot of stuff to do during the games because the position players take priority.

"We stunk, I stunk and Tampa Bay was better and that's basically how it was. You put that in your filing bank."

Bobby V on Beckett, Lester: Fantastic attitude

FORT MYERS -- On the first day of pitchers and catchers working out, new Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said he's been very impressed with the work ethic of Josh Beckett and Jon Lester, two central figures in last year's clubhouse controversy. Valentine said both pitchers have shown him early on that they can be leaders, capable of putting 2011 behind them.

"I tell you what, if they lead by example as much as they've by example in the last few days, that's enough," Valentine said. "What I've seen right now is plenty. If they don't pull back on the throttle any in what they're doing, I wouldn't ask for anything more.

"I'm still looking forward to seeing it. Up close and personal, it's been a great start. Just my observation, I don't want to say they've met expectation, but my observation has been a very pleasant observation. I like what I've seen."

Most importantly to Valentine, he said the leadership from Beckett...
