Amonte on M&M: Pressure all on Capitals

CSNNE hockey analyst Tony Amonte joined Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about the Bruins' Game 7 matchup with the Capitals.

Some are saying the pressure is on the Bruins as the favorite, but Amonte sees it differently.

"For Washington, I think they're a little bit more nervous, those guys, really never been in this situation," Amonte said. "Obviously, they had a great chance to close it out the other night in Game 6. They're the guys that have got to start pressing. They're the ones under the pressure now. I think if the Bruins just play their game, this one should just fall right into their laps."

Added Amonte: "It would be a big disappointment for [the Bruins] not be to able to advance this year. I think they got a great seed, the No. 2 seed in the East. They draw probably the most up-and-down team all year in the Washington Capitals. The Capitals really never seemed to establish anything all year. They...

Olney: Crawford 'can't throw a baseball'

ESPN baseball analyst Buster Olney made his weekly appearance on Mut & Merloni to discuss many things that have been plaguing the Red Sox lately, most notably whether to move Daniel Bard to the bullpen, who to try to trade for to fill any holes and who to blame for the team's early struggles.

No issue, however, was more pressing for Olney than the news that Carl Crawford will visit the renowned Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his ailing left elbow that has kept him sidelined throughout the 2012 season. Olney said Crawford's elbow is a serious matter that still has a ways to go before getting better.

"Talking with sources this morning, they basically said that if he has any kind of a throw beyond flipping the ball, it really hurt his elbow," Olney said. "It doesn’t hurt him when he hits, it doesn’t hurt him when he does other stuff, but he can’t throw a baseball.

"It will be...

Hawks' Horford out, Pachulia limited vs. C's

Hawks center Al Horford has gone from "frustrated" to "70 percent" to "not likely" to "possible" and finally to "out" for their first-round playoff series with the Celtics that will begin this weekend. The All-Star center has surgery in January to repair a torn pectoral muscle and has not played since Jan. 11.

Horford told The Atlanta-Journal Constitution on Wednesday that he would miss the first round and would try to play in the second if the Hawks advance. The Hawks are also planning to be without Zaza Pachulia for the beginning of the series. Kevin Garnett's old nemesis has not played since April 13 due to a sprained left foot ligament. The Hawks have won four of their last six with Jason Collins starting at center.

Brickley on D&C: Experience key for Bruins

With the Bruins set to play the Capitals in Game 7 in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs Wednesday night, NESN Bruins analyst Andy Brickley joined the Dennis & Callahan show to preview the game.

All of the first six games of the series were decided by one goal, with three of the games going into overtime. Brickley said he expects the trend to continue in Game 7, especially because he has seen no quit in this Capitals team.

"Maybe there’s an open-netter that makes it a two-goal game at the end, but I expect very much what we saw through the first six games," Brickley said. "It’s the same feeling I had going into the Montreal game last year, the same sense I had going into the Tampa game last year.

"I had a different feeling going into the Vancouver game, I had a feeling the Bruins were going to win by at least two, maybe three because of what I saw from the Vancouver Canucks. I’m not...

Mashup: World Peace suspended 7 games

Metta World Peace was suspended seven games by the NBA Tuesday for his elbow to the head of Thunder guard James Harden in Sunday's game. The Lakers will be without their defensive specialist for the final regular-season game and the first six games of the postseason. This means he would at most miss two games of a potential second-round series between the teams.

Although World Peace insisted the elbow was accidental, even his own teammates didn't appear to be convinced.

"It's hard to get into a guy's head and know exactly what happened in that situation," Kobe Bryant said Tuesday. "I haven't really spoken to him about it. You've really got to ask him."

Artest was brief in a statement he published on his website: I apologize to the Oklahoma City Thunder fans and the OKC organization. I look foward to getting back on the floor with my teammates and competing for the Lakers fans.
