Ellsbury: 'I'll definitely be playing this year'

Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, speaking to the media for the first time since suffering a subluxation of his right shoulder last Friday, said that he does not have a timetable for his return, but that after being assured that he will not require surgery, he is ready to work to get back as soon as possible. The outfielder said that after being examined to confirm the diagnosis for a subluxation, he is confident in a return at some point this year.

"I’ll definitely be playing this year, hopefully sooner than later," said Ellsbury. "Putting a lot of work in. Right now, we’re doing a lot of icing to get the swelling out. Once the swelling subsides, I can start getting exercises, that sort of thing, in the shoulder. As far as the timeline, we don’t have one right now. ... Everyone’s on the same page. I’m excited to get everything going and get back as soon as possible."

Ellsbury said that he had...

Pats LT Matt Light reportedly set to retire

Patriots left tackle Matt Light, one of the few remaining links to Super Bowl XXXVI left on the roster, will retire, according to a report from Pro Football Talk. Light's playing status has been a topic since the end the 2011 season, but he has refused to commit one way or another, including when pressed by reporters at an event on Wednesday. The 33-year-old Light has been a part of three Super Bowl teams since he entered the league as a second-round pick out of Purdue in 2001, and has started 153 regular-season games over the course of his 11-year career in New England.

Crawford homers in Fort Myers game

Red Sox left fielder Carl Crawford went 1-for-3 with a homer and walk on Wednesday, his second game in extended spring training in Fort Myers. Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that the 30-year-old's wrist (which was surgically repaired in January) is no longer an issue, but said that he is likely not ready at this point to resume playing outfield as a resut of the elbow strain he suffered last week. Crawford has been serving as a designated hitter in both of his games in Florida.

Julien: Hunter claim 'Ludicrous, ridiculous'
By: DJ Bean

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Bruins coach Claude Julien responded Wednesday to Capitals coach Dale Hunter's accusation that the Boston players have been targeting the head of Nicklas Backstrom, who missed 40 games during the regular season with a concussion. 

"That doesn't make sense," Julien said after Wednesday's practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. "I don't know any coach that would tell his team to go after somebody's head. It speaks for itself."

Added Julien: "It's ludicrous. It's ridiculous. There's always going to be emotions in games, and there's things that are happening. Like I said [after Game 3], there was three cross-checks. They penalized one and they suspended one. We're not whining about the refs and we need to win the series and what's going on here. That's where are focus is on. That's what it should be." 

Backstrom was suspended for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals for cross-...
