Canty: Statement not 'bulletin board material'

INDIANAPOLIS -- On Wednesday, Chris Canty told New York Giants fans to "get ready for a parade" following Super Bowl XLVI. Canty again spoke to the media on Thursday and was asked if he thought the comments might serve as potential motivation for the Patriots.

"I don't feel that was bulletin board material," Canty said. "There was a comment made by some guy in Foxboro earlier in the week. Tom Brady made some statements, it just is what it is. They are confident in their chances, as they should be. They are a very good football team. But we are a confident group as well. We've worked really hard to put ourselves in this position and we are looking forward to Sunday. ... I'm not trying to inflame anybody or anything like that, I just want our fans to be excited about the game that's coming up on Sunday. It's going to be a great football game. It's going to be a 60-minute game, and hopefully we can put ourselves in the...

McQuaid expected to play vs. Hurricanes
By: DJ Bean

After missing Wednesday's practice with a lower-body injury, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was on the ice for Thursday's morning skate and hopes to play Thursday night against the Hurricanes at TD Garden.

"I felt good this morning," McQuaid said after the skate. "I'm not sure exactly if there's been a decision made, but I felt good this morning." 

Said coach Claude Julien: "As far as we know, he should be ready to go, but we'll probably leave it at game-time decision. He looked good this morning, and we anticipate he's going to play."

McQuaid caught his skate in a rut late in the third period against the Senators on Tuesday, and said that though a part of him was concerned he may have suffered something more severe, he's feeling better now.  

"There's always a little bit of that concern," McQuaid said. "You're not sure how your body will react to different things, but I'm pretty...

Report: Gronk to practice, will play Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS -- For the first time since injuring his left ankle in the AFC championship game, Patriots Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski will practice Thursday and will play in Super Bowl XLVI Sunday here at Lucas Oil Stadium, according to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter

Gronkowski suffered what his father called a "high ankle sprain" when Bernard Pollard landed on it in the third quarter of the 23-20 win over the Ravens. 

Gronkowski said Thursday morning he continues to feel "better and better" every day, adding he hoped to get on the practice field and wake up in one of the next three days feeling 100 percent. He did not practice last week and missed full pads practice on Monday. He also did not get on the field on Wednesday, when the team released its first injury report of the week.

Kraft hopes for 'most watched program' ever

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Super Bowl is traditionally one of the most-watched television programs every year. Patriots owner Robert Kraft - on the committee overseeing NFL broadcast rights - has even bigger hopes for Sunday. He's hoping Super Bowl XLVI passes the series finale of M*A*S*H in 1983.

"I hope this game Sunday is the most-watched program in the history of television," Kraft said Thursday morning. 

With his negotiating of a new TV deal as part of the new collective bargaining agreement, the players and owners resolved their differences on July 25. 

"We came this close to missing games," Kraft said "We were able to put this labor deal together and we promised the players that if we did this, they'd be the biggest beneficiaries. We did these media deals that put every NFL game for the next 11 years on over-the-air, free TV. There's no other sport that does that. The players will get 55 percent of...

Rodney 'haunted for months' by Tyree catch

NBC NFL analyst and former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison, in an interview with the Dennis & Callahan show, said that he endured months of sleepless nights in the aftermath of the Patriots' 17-14 loss in Super Bowl XLII. The circus catch by David Tyree, with Harrison draped all over the receiver, played a critical role in the Giants' game-winning drive and left the defensive back to a withering self-assessment.

"I had an opportunity to change the course of the game and I blew it. I didn't make the play that I needed to make for that team and that organization," said Harrison. "You'll never see me having a lack of effort, but this game is about making plays. I made my fair share of plays in Super Bowl and AFC championships. But I let down the city of Boston area, the Patriots organization, my teammates. I didn't make the play that I should have made.

"It haunted me for months -- sleepless nights," ...
