Mashup: Carcillo returns in Flyers' loss

The Blackhawks took a 2-0 lead on the Flyers in the Stanley Cup finals with a 2-1 win Monday. Philadelphia made an effort to spice things up by dressing agitator Dan Carcillo for the first time in four games. Carcillo made some pregame threats but didn't have much of an impact once the puck was dropped. He was his usual aggressive, annoying self and was called for an unsportsmanlike penalty in the first period. Also, the Duke lacrosse team captured its first title by scoring five seconds into overtime. Get caught up on those stories, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Green apologizes for Pierce stabbing line

Speaking on the Planet Mikey Show Monday night, KTLA's Ted Green said that he should "probably apologize for" the line he wrote referencing Paul Pierce's stabbing in his column for the LA Times. Green wrote of Pierce that the Celtics star's "idea of a fun night is going clubbing and getting stabbed. Good times!"

 

"That one was something I probably should apologize for. That one was not only too close to the line, but maybe over," Green said. "The truth is I think Paul Pierce is a very, very good player. A Hall of Fame caliber player. I probably shouldn't have gone to the stabbing card."

 

Green said that the LA Times initially took the post down, but then simply took out the line referencing Pierce....

Prospect Kalish promoted to Pawtucket

A baseball source confirmed that Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish, one of the top position prospects in the system, was promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket after Monday's game with the Portland Sea Dogs. The news was first reported by the Portland Press-Herald.

 

The 22-year-old started out slowly this year, hitting .222 with a .373 OBP, .444 slugging mark and .818 OPS in April before enjoying a tremendous second month of the season. In May, Kalish hit .345/.430/.586/1.016 with four homers, improving his overall marks to .293/.404/.527/.931. His performance this year cemented his strong showing in Portland in 2009 when, after an early season promotion, he hit .271/.341/.440/.781 with 13 homers in 103 games.

 

Kalish has always had an advanced approach at the plate. Since the start of the 2009 season, he has also shown solid power potential. He hit...

Report: Moss seeking new agent

A day after Randy Moss’ agent e-mailed a statement saying the two had decided to part ways and that the veteran wide receiver was going to serve as his own agent from now on, Moss told The Boston Herald he is actively seeking new representation in an attempt to go after what he called more “off-the-field money.”

“I really wasn’t into commercials, because I wanted to concentrate on one objective, being a better football player year-in and year-out,” Moss said. “Now, late in my career, I’m still thinking I have some marketing opportunities out there. I need an agent or agency that’s going to get out there and find those business deals off the field.”

Moss, who is entering the final year of a three-year deal he signed with the Patriots following the 2007 season, also explained his approach to the upcoming season.

“I wanted to let fans know, this is my year,...

Pierce: Doc among very best NBA coaches

WALTHAM -- Whether he wins another title or not, Paul Pierce believes he is playing for one of the best coaches of his generation. Pierce said Monday following practice that Doc Rivers deserves credit for keeping the team focused on the task at hand and never showing panic through the course of a long season filled with many ups and downs. 

 

"He's definitely taken my career to the next level," Pierce said. "You have to put him up there with the top-five coaches with Phil, Gregg Popovich." 

 

Phil Jackson has an NBA-record 10 titles as head coach while Gregg Popovich is second among active coaches with four. The Celtics are making their second trip to the NBA Finals in three years with Rivers as the coach and he is trying to join Red Auerbach, Bill Russell and K.C. Jones as Celtics coaches with two titles in three seasons.
