Bruins shock Caps but lose a wild one
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins woke up big time in the third period in Washington and rallied to nearly steal a point or two in a game in which they were left for dead on Friday night. Ultimately, it was locally born John Carlson who did the Bruins in as the Capitals escaped the game with a 5-3 victory. 

 

The Bruins were offensively nonexistent through the first two periods, putting just nine shots on Washington netminder Michal Neuvirth, all of which the 22-year-old stooped. The Capitals, on the other hand, were able to to put three past Tim Thomas, who for the first time this season was pulled from a game. 

 

With the Bruins down, 3-0, entering the third, the team rallied with Tuukka Rask in net and had goals from Michael Ryder, Nathan Horton, and Shawn Thornton to tie the game and chase Neuvirth, who ended the night with just 11 saves on 14 shots. Carlson negated the sting of the Bruins' rally when he beat Tuukka Rask from the...

Scalabrine: 'Villanueva broke a code'

Brian Scalabrine backed his former teammate Kevin Garnett and said that Charlie Villanueva should not have said anything publicly about what happens on the court. "I believe that Villanuvea broke a code that should have never been broke," Scalabrine said. "What was said out there stays out there. I would never go to you guys and say the stuff that KG’s going to say to me tonight. Good or bad." 

 

This was Scalabrine's first game back in Boston since signing with Chicago. He said that his time in Boston was the best of his career. "The last few years have been the [most fun] time I’ve ever had in basketball," he said. "I learned the most and grew the most as a person in those three years. It changed my life so much. My kids will take advantage of it as well as their children. There’s way you should live life and way you should not make excuses and go out and work hard and be respectful...

Shaq out, may miss road trip

Shaquille O'Neal will miss Friday night's game with the Bulls. It's the third straight game that Shaq has missed since colliding with Amar'e Stoudemire last week. Doc Rivers also said that Shaq may not make the team's road trip, which will take them from Oklahoma City to Dallas and then Miami and Memphis.

 

Also of concern for Rivers is the status of Rajon Rondo. The coach said that Rondo's feet have been bothering him, although he didn't specify an injury. Rivers said he wouldn't hesitate to take him out of the game if he looked like he was struggling.

 

The Celtics did receive a bit of roster relief from the league in regards to Delonte West who had counted as one of their 12 active players during his suspension. For the last five games of his suspension, West will now be listed among the inactives, although with injuries to Kendrick Perkins, Avery Bradley and now Shaq, the Celtics don't have 12 healthy players.
