Bruins forward Nathan Horton was not on the ice as the team returned from the All-Star break Monday. Horton has been dealing with his second concussion since June after taking a hit to the head from Flyers' forward Tom Sestito on Jan. 22.
Coach Claude Julien said that Horton is still experiencing symptoms, and that the team doesn't expect the symptoms to subside for at least three days, meaning he will not play Tuesday against the Senators, and could also miss Thursday's game against the Hurricanes.
"He is getting better, but so we can save you guys a lot of trouble of asking every day, at least not for three days. … He's still at the point where he hasn't ridden the bike yet, but he is getting better."
With Horton not practicing, forward Rich Peverley took his place on the team's top line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic Monday.
In 46 games played this season, Horton has 17 goals and 15 assists for...
Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, in his weekly appearance on The Big Show, praised the development of Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Wilfork noted that Manning has become an elite quarterback in the two-minute offense, suggesting that the Patriots can't afford any lapses or else they will be at risk of suffering a defeat along the lines of their 24-20 regular season loss to the Giants.
"Eli’s done a great job," said Wilfork. "He’s grown into a top NFL quarterback. I can honestly sit back and say that, just seeing his play, seeing how his team rallies around him. That 49ers game, being hit and being sacked, that guy kept his poise, stayed even-keeled and he delivered for those guys. That’s what you need from a quarterback. You need someone who’s going to deliver when the time is hardest, and he did that and he’s done it throughout the year.
"They’re probably one of the best two-...

The Knicks entered the season with high expectations. It started well, with a Christmas Day victory over the Celtics. However, New York has lost nine of its last 10 games to fall to 7-13, and now there is speculation that coach Mike D'Antoni is on the hot seat, although the front office isn't talking -- about anything.
Amar'e Stoudemire vented after Saturday's loss to the Rockets, urging his teammates to make D'Antoni's job easier.
"We have to prepare ourselves better as individuals," Stoudemire said. "Coaches give the game plan. We have to be ready to execute the game plan. If we’re not ready to execute the game plan, we’re not helping our teammates.
“We have to learn to comprehend and learn from our mistakes, and right now we’re not doing that."
Meanwhile, veteran point guard Baron Davis, acquired before the season, has been practicing with the team but has yet to appear in a game as he...

Brady talked about how far he's come since he arrived in New England as an unheralded sixth-round draft pick out of Michigan in 2000.
"I think I realize how fortunate I am," he said "I don’t take those things for granted. I think because it’s my life, I don’t go, 'Wow, look at what I’ve accomplished.'
"I was sitting in front of my locker the other day talking to Deion [Branch], who’s my lockermate, and we’re like, 'Can you believe this?' I don’t think, as an athlete, you can ever imagine that. You hope for the best, you work hard for it, and if you get the opportunity, a lot of things need to come together to make it to...
