Jets offensive lineman Damien Woody was not pleased after perusing the Internet following his team's overtime victory over the Browns on Sunday. The former Boston College and Patriots blocker did not appreciate people implying the Jets were more lucky than good. So, he tweeted: "Lots of haters out there calling us lucky ... will y'all please check tha stats of the game b4 drinkin tha Haterade."
On Monday, Woody further explained his feelings to the New York Post: "When I saw some of the tweets I was getting I was like, 'Hold on now.' There are a lot of ignorant people out there saying some dumb things. Check the stats out before you start throwing out, 'Oh, you guys lucked out to beat Cleveland.' We dominated Cleveland. If we had done a better job in the red zone, the game wouldn't even have been close and we wouldn't be having this discussion."
Woody also compared this year's Jets team to...

Claude Julien said Monday night that Johnny Boychuk and David Krejci will accompany the Bruins as they travel to New York to face the Rangers on Wednesday night. Krejci, working his way back from a concussion suffered Nov. 6, continues to skate with the team while Boychuk, who suffered a fractured forearm on Oct. 23 against the Rangers, could return to game action.
"Boychuk is day-to-day now," Julien said. "Depending on how his wrist is or is arm is, there's always a possibility we could see him in Wednesday's game."
Julien expressed uncertainty on the subject of whether Marco Sturm (knee) or Marc Savard (post-concussion syndrome) will travel with the team. Both have been skating as they look to return from their respective injuries.

Tim Thomas stopped all 28 shots for his fourth shutout this season and Mark Recchi added a pair of assists on offense as the Bruins snapped a three-game home-ice losing streak with a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils Monday night at TD Garden.
Thomas, who was coming off his first loss of the season on Saturday at home to Ottawa, bounced back with a strong effort in net to improve to 9-1-0 on the season. The Bruins, who had scored just one goal in their last two home games, scored one in each period against future hall of famer Martin Brodeur, as Michael Ryder scored his fifth in the first, Nathan Horton tallied his 8th in the second and Blake Wheeler scored his third just 17 seconds into the third.
NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly defended disciplinarian Colin Campbell on Monday after e-mails suggesting a bias for his son, Bruins forward Gregory, surfaced online.
"Any suggestion that Colin Campbell performs his job with any less than 100 percent integrity at all times and in every decision he makes is way off base and just factually wrong," Daly told TSN. "Because of the potential for a conflict of interest, or more importantly a perceived conflict of interest, the League has implemented various structural protections that prohibit Colie from having any oversight or disciplinary authority relating to any game in which his son, Gregory, plays. Its always fair to question and criticize League decisions as being wrong, but not on the basis that they aren't justly and fairly arrived at."
Campbell himself told TSN that he was...
