Lucic tossed on controversial misconduct

MONTREAL -- Milan Lucic was tossed from Tuesday's Game 6 at Bell Centre early in the second period for a hit on Jaroslav Spacek that left the Canadiens defenseman on the ice with blood dripping from his head. 

Lucic was assessed a five-minute major for boarding and a game misconduct 4:37 into the second. Moments later, Patrice Bergeron took a delay-of-game penalty for flipping the puck over the glass in the defensive zone and the Canadiens capitalized for their second 5-on-3 power play goal of the game as Brian Gionta scored. 

The hit that left Spacek on the ice for about a minute happened against the center-ice glass, directly across from the turnbuckle that Max Pacioretty hit when Zdeno Chara checked him on March 8.

Report: C's pursuing Pitt's Gilbert Brown

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Celtics have expressed interest in signing Gilbert Brown, a forward out of the University of Pittsburgh who went undrafted in last week's NBA draft. Brown told the Post-Gazette that Celtics head of basketball operations Danny Ainge contacted him shortly after the draft, in which the C's selected Purdue guard E'Twuan Moore with their second-round selection, to say that Boston would be interested in signing the fifth-year senior, who averaged 11.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game as a fifth-year senior for the Panthers.

"I'm definitely encouraged that the Celtics were interested," Brown told the Post-Gazette. "I was talking to them all day. They said it was the flip of a coin [between Moore and Brown] when it came time to make the pick."

Contracts for undrafted free agents will not be...

Varitek catching Buchholz vs. O's

 BALTIMORE -- For the second straight outing, Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz will be paired with catcher Jason Varitek on Tuesday against the Orioles. Varitek was also behind the dish for Buchholz' best start of the 2011 campaign, which came last week against Oakland, a 5 1/3 inning, one-run effort. Aside from that, the rest of the lineup will remain relatively intact, with Jacoby Ellsbury leading off, Jed Lowrie hitting sixth and playing short and Carl Crawford batting eighth.

Mankins: 'Don't know' about staying with Pats

Logan Mankins told reporters Tuesday that he isn't sure he wants to remain a member of the Patriots if the 2011 NFL season takes place.

"I've thought about that," Mankins said when asked if he wants to stay in New England. "I don't know. I'm not going to put any answers on that right now, I'll wait until there is a season in progress before I decide."

The Patriots placed the franchise tag on Mankins in February, following a 2010 season that saw the All-Pro guard miss the first seven games before signing a RFA tender for $1.54 million. 

It is possible -- though most feel not probable -- that the eventual collective bargaining agreement would contain no franchise tags. Mankins was asked for his thoughts on that possibility.

"Well, that would be nice, because I've heard there's this thing in football called free agency," said Mankins. "It's been two years now and I haven't seen it. Maybe one of...

Carl Everett arrested for aggravated assault

Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Everett was arrested late Monday on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and tampering with a witness. 

According to a Hillsborough County police report, the 39-year-old Everett pointed a gun at his wife's head and then broke two cell phones when she attempted to call for help. The arrest took place shortly after 10 p.m., with the former outfielder being held in a Hillsborough County Jail with no bond set according to Tampa Bay Online.

The report states that the argument between the former big leaguer and Linda Everett escalated when he pointed a silver handgun at her head. When she attempted to call 911 on two different occasions, with two different phones, Everett broke both calling devices. The couple has been married for 18 years.
