Tyler Seguin played the role of hero Sunday in Game 6 at the Verizon Center in Washington as he scored just over three minutes into overtime to give the Bruins a 4-3 win over the Capitals and force a Game 7 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series Wednesday night in Boston. Seguin came flying down the slot and took a feed from Milan Lucic. He held the puck long enough to make Caps goalie Braden Holtby commit before flipping the puck into the vacated net for his first career playoff overtime goal.
"I saw the goalie challenging and I just tried to make a quick move and luckily it went in," Seguin said. "I think this series we've had a lot of chances and opportunities and I haven't been bearing down or finishing them off. It's just really nice to get that feeling of finally getting one.
"When you're a little kid, that's your dream, get those big goals and keep your team alive. Looking back on my career so far, that's probably...
Tyler Seguin deked and scored on Braden Holtby just 3:17 into the first overtime as the Bruins beat the Capitals, 4-3, Sunday in Game 6 at the Verizon Center in Washington. David Krejci stole the puck near center ice and gave it to Milan Lucic on the left wing, and he fed Seguin down the slot. Holtby came out to try to play the puck and Seguin -- considered the most skilled puck-handler on the Bruins -- held on and waited for Holtby to go down before firing the puck into the open net. Game 7 is Wednesday night at TD Garden.
It was the sixth straight one-goal game in the series, a Stanley Cup playoff record for a best-of-seven series.
Andrew Ference -- known for his vocal environmental advocacy -- came down the slot and fired a Seguin rebound into an open net for what could have been the game-winning goal on Earth Day, as the Bruins led 3-2 with 8:03 left. But with 4:52 left, Nicklas Backstrom won a draw against Rich Peverley and drew it...
The Red Sox will promote first baseman/outfielder Lars Anderson Monday, replacing Jason Repko on the active roster. Repko is being placed on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury.
The 24-year-old Anderson was hitting .255 with one home run and a .758 OPS with Triple-A Pawtucket. He has hit safely in the last six games.
"We’ll talk to him about it. We’ll get the reports," Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said of the role Anderson will serve with the Red Sox. "He’s here in case I want to use him in the outfield, maybe as a pinch-hitter, left-handed bat.”
Valentine stated in his meeting with the media Sunday afternoon that Kevin Youkilis, who left Saturday's game with a left quad contusion, was slated to start for the Red Sox Sunday night before their game with the Yankees was postponed due to inclement weather.
Newly acquired Marlon Byrd also was to be in the lineup for the Sox against...
Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine told WHDH Channel 7's Joe Amorosino during the taping of his weekly segment for Sports Xtra Sunday afternoon that Daniel Bard's turn in the starting rotation will be skipped. Valentine said that Bard would be available for work out of the bullpen prior to his next scheduled start, which would be April 27 in Chicago against the White Sox.
Bard was scheduled to pitch Sunday night against the Yankees and CC Sabathia, but that game was postponed due to inclement weather.
Valentine confirmed the move to the media late Sunday afternoon, reiterating that while Bard may see some time out of the bullpen the next few days, he still is considered a member of the starting rotation.
"As the plan is now," the manager said, "he's our fifth starter."
Valentine said if Bard did relieve prior to Friday it would be with the Red Sox leading in the eighth inning or coming in for a high-...
