Miroslav Satan will make his debut for the Bruins in Ottawa tonight. Satan was signed to a one-year deal Saturday and had been expected to practice for a week before playing, but with Patrice Bergeron suffering an apparent hand injury in last night’s 3-2 loss to the Rangers in New York, the B’s are moving the timetable up for Satan to play. “We were hoping to give him at least a week, but the circumstances are we don’t have an extra forward right now,” Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters in Ottawa this morning. “He’s in good shape, the only thing we wanted to do was give him a chance to get his timing and a week of practice. Unfortunately he doesn’t have that luxury and neither do we.” Julien did not have any further information on Bergeron, who returned to Boston to be...

Omar Minaya presented him with a No. 44 jersey, and hockey Hall of Famer Rod Gilbert also gave the native of Trail, British Columbia, a Rangers jersey. Bay pronounced his excitement to join the Mets, a team that he said interested him from the beginning of the free-agency process, and his bemusement about the sort of rumors that made the rounds — both about his interest in going to New York and his health — over the course of the free-agency process.

"Beltre's kind of a mystery guy," Crasnick said. "He's had some good seasons, but he was terrible last year offensively." Added Crasnick: "That was obviously the priority for the Red Sox was trying to upgrade their defense, that's a good thing. When you can sign a guy for one year as opposed to a three- or four-year contract, that's also certainly a plus."
Crasnick said he heard a rumor that new Mets outfielder Jason Bay might not have felt comfortable with the "celebrity culture" away from the field in Boston. "Jason Bay, I'm not sure he was quite comfortable with that," Crasnick said. "I'm sure he enjoyed playing in Boston. I'd be interested to know if that was a factor in him wanting to look around...
