Tuukka Rask and the Bruins suffered a bit of deja vu on Saturday night, as the young goaltender played well but allowed goals due to a couple of flukey plays and a breakaway in a 3-2 Rangers victory.
Artem Anisimov and Alex Frolov netted first-period tallies for the Rangers on a batted-in rebound and knuckling puck over Rask's glove, respectively. Marc Staal scored on a breakaway fresh out of the penalty box in the second to give New York their third goal.
Nathan Horton and Zdeno Chara picked up the goals for the Bruins, with Chara sending one past Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist while the B's were on a two-man advantage with five seconds left in the first period. Nathan Horton scored his fifth goal of the season in the second period to make it 3-2.
The Bruins are now 4-2-0 on the season, with both losses coming in games started by Rask. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at...
The Patriots on Saturday signed safety Sergio Brown to the 53-man roster from the practice squad. To make room on the 53-man roster for Brown, they released running back Thomas Clayton.
Brown, 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Notre Dame on April 29. He was released by the Patriots on Sept. 4 and signed to the practice squad on Sept. 6.
Clayton, 5-foot-11, 220 pounds, was signed by the Patriots from the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad on Sept. 30. He originally signed with New England on June 11 and was released on Sept. 4. Clayton spent the 2007 and 2008 seasons on the San Francisco practice squad and 2009 on injured reserve with the 49ers after originally joining the team as a sixth round draft choice out of Kansas State in 2007. He was inactive during his two games on the New England 53-man roster.

CHESTNUT HILL -- Boston College free safety Wes Davis was taken off on a stretcher after suffering a neck injury with 3:47 left in the third quarter of the game against Maryland at Alumni Stadium.
Davis, a BC captain, was on the far side of midfield in front of the Maryland sideline making a play when he was hit. He was immobilized and lifted onto the guerney and wheeled off following a 10-minute delay.
Moments later came the announcement that Davis suffered a neck injury but had full movement in all extremities. He was taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital for further evaluation.

From the beginning, the starting center spot for the Celtics was going to be a fluid situation. With Kendrick Perkins rehabbing from knee surgery, Jermaine O'Neal started camp as the first-team center. When he hurt his hamstring and missed a week of practice, Shaquille O'Neal assumed the role. Now that the start of the season is right around the corner, it appears that when the starters are introduced Tuesday night, Shaq will be among them.
"They’re both playing well," Doc Rivers said after practice Saturday. "J.O. has just missed so much time that he’s so far behind, but he’s getting it. You can tell." Both players have inisisted that they don't care who starts, but Rivers like the competition.
"They’re both going for it," Rivers said. "At the end of the day when you decide, they’ll be able to live with it. They’re going after each other. I...
The guys have even more reaction to Deflategate and if this is actually a showdown between Bill and Roger.
Tom E. Curran calls the boys during his layover in Denver and gets right into the Deflategate craziness.

He gets into the relationship between Belichick and the league office, Belichick and Kraft and the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday.

Both guys think that Pats may be guilty of doing something to the balls, but that so do most other teams. Will Belichick and Brady be punished? Not if the NFL doesn't have proof, which it's looking more and more like they don't.
