Bruins shuffle lines, demote McGrattan
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- After taking the day off Sunday, the Bruins returned to work at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington on Monday for their first practice following Saturday's injury to David Krejci. The top-line center suffered a concussion when he hit the boards following a hit from T.J. Oshie in overtime.

 

With Krejci out, the color-coded lines saw a bit of shuffling. Patrice Bergeron is now wearing a white sweater, signifying he'll be on the top line with Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton. Blake Wheeler appears set to center the second line, while it looks like Daniel Paille might get some third-line ice time out of this deal. Here are how the lines look based on Monday's practice.

 

Lucic - Bergeron - Horton

Caron - Wheeler - Recchi

Paille - Seguin - Ryder

Marchand - Campbell - Thornton

 

The Bruins also announced Monday that Brian McGrattan has been placed on waivers for the purpose of...

Esiason on D&C: Pats were unprepared

NBC Sports football analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to dissect the Patriots' 34-14 loss to the Browns.

 

Esiason said it's clear that the Browns are not that bad and the Patriots aren't as good as many people were saying leading into the game. Said Esiason: "This is what you call a 'corrector' in the eyes of the NFL. … Maybe the Patriots, they're not the best team in the NFL at this point."

 

Esiason said the Browns coaching staff put it all on the line to win this game, and it paid off. "Obviously, this game means a lot to both sides, I don't care what you say," Esiason said. "I know Bill Belichick has got the Super Bowl rings, he's the mentor, if you will. But at the end of the day, the other guys on the other side put everything into this game."

 

Added Esiason: "It's one of those games, guys, I...

Brady leaves Nike for Under Armour

Tom Brady told Sports Illustrated's Peter King that he recently signed a contract to endorse Under Armour after his deal with Nike expired in the summer. The deal includes a financial stake in the 14-year-old Maryland company.

 

"Under Armour's everything I was looking for," Brady said. "It's cool. It's fun. It's what so many of the kids are wearing, and I like to try to stay cutting-edge. I like the company. I think we've got a lot in common. We both want to stay hungry, stay humble.''

 

King reports that Brady is Under Armour's first superstar athlete, and the quarterback will appear in commercials and print ads starting in early 2011.

 

Under Armour's highest-profile endorsers are Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, swimmer Michael Phelps and skier Lindsey Vonn.

 

"At this point in my career, it's got to be about a product I believe in," Brady said. "I felt...

Brady on D&C: 'We were forewarned'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Monday Morning for his weekly chat as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Brady said the Pats did not take the Browns lightly before Cleveland rolled to a 34-14 victory Sunday.

 

"Believe me, we knew we were in for a dogfight," he said, adding: "We were prepared. We were forewarned 50 times last week. We've got to take the coaching better, and get back to playing the way we need to play."

 

Added Brady: "I wouldn't say we played tough, smart or physical yesterday. Those are our strengths, and we didn't play to those."

 

Asked about the late-game celebration by the Browns coaches who are former Patriots assistants, Brady said, "It's just their personality," and if the Pats didn't like it, they should have played better to prevent it. "When you play well, you can do whatever you want, as...
