Pens are mightier: B's streak over at 7

Dustin Jeffrey scored his second goal of the game at 1:52 of overtime to lead the Penguins to a 3-2 win over the Bruins Saturday night at TD Garden, snapping Boston's season-long winning streak at seven games. The seven-game run was Boston's best since winning 10 straight from Dec. 12, 2008-Jan. 1, 2009. 

 

David Krejci scored with an extra attacker with 32.5 seconds remaining to force overtime, just moments after Tomas Kaberle blocked Matt Cooke's shot on an empty net. Jordan Staal and Jeffrey scored 70 seconds apart in the second period to erase a one-goal deficit.

 

Zdeno Chara snapped a 19-game drought when he scored his first goal since a hat trick on Jan. 17 on wrister from between the circles that beat Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury up top. The goal at 7:26 of the second period gave Boston a 1-0 lead they would hold for only two and a half minutes.

Harvard clinches share of Ivy title

Kyle Casey scored 24 points and Harvard held off Princeton, 79-67, Saturday night at Lavietes Pavilion to secure at least a tie for the Ivy League title for the first time in school history.

 

Princeton (23-6, 11-2 Ivy) closes out the regular season Tuesday night at Penn. A Princeton loss would give the Crimson (23-5, 12-2) the title outright an a berth in the NCAA tournament. If the Tigers win Tuesday, that would force a one-game playoff to decide the league's NCAA representative.

 

Casey, from Medway, scored 17 of his points in the first half and was a force down low for the Crimson before fouling out with 1:36 remaining. Also for Harvard, Oliver McNally scored 15 points while Keith Wright contributed 13 points and six blocks.

 

The sellout crowd rushed the court after Harvard completed a perfect 14-0 home slate. The Crimson have won 17 straight at Lavietes dating back to last season. That and their 23...

Tim Thomas to start vs. Penguins
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas led the Bruins out onto the ice Saturday night, meaning he will be between the pipes vs. the Penguins. The status of the starting goaltender was unclear throughout the day, as the B's held an optional morning skate. 

 

Thomas is 29-8-6 this season with a league-best 1.95 goals against average and a .940 save percentage. He allowed one goal in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Lightning. The Bruins have won seven in a row.

Marlins shell Daisuke; Aceves strong vs. O's
By: DJ Bean

Daisuke Matsuzaka struggled Saturday against the Marlins, while Alfredo Aceves was strong against the Orioles on a busy Saturday for the Red Sox. 

 

Matsuzka allowed six hits and seven runs over three innings against Florida. He struck out one, walked two and allowed a two-run homer to DeWayne Wise. 

 

Aceves, meanwhile, allowed just an unearned run against the Orioles in a game the teams would eventually tie, 4-4. The lone run came in his fourth and final inning of work. Oscar Tejeda had his second straight game with a two-run triple (for more on Tejeda, click here).

Report: C's sign Arroyo as back-up PG

WALTHAM -- The Celtics search for a back-up point guard has ended with Carlos Arroyo, according to the Boston Herald

 

The paper reported Saturday that the team was looking at several options but favored Arroyo over veteran Antonio Daniels, who was attempting a comeback with the Texas Legends of the D-League. The Herald reports that Arroyo was signed to a pro-rated veteran minimum contract for the rest of the season. Arroyo was waived by the Heat earlier this week to make room for the signing of Mike Bibby.

 

The move was necessitated when Delonte West went down with a sprained right ankle last weekend and Von Wafer strained his right calf during Friday's win over the Warriors.
