Bruins best the best, beat Canucks

The Bruins earned an impressive victory on the road, claiming a 3-1 victory in Vancouver over the Canucks. Vancouver had entered the contest leading the NHL in points (87) and armed with the best home ice mark (22-5-5) in the game.

 

But Milan Lucic broke a 1-1 tie at the 15:22 mark in the third period, banging home a rebound of a Dennis Seidenberg shot for his 27th goal of the year. Lucic also assisted on the other two Bruins' goals, a game-tying tally from Nathan Horton in the second period to knot the contest at 1-1 as well as an empty-netter from Patrice Bergeron with just over a minute left in regulation.

 

Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, meanwhile, stopped 27 of 28 shots from a Canucks team that entered the night leading the NHL in goals scored. After Vancouver took a 1-0 lead in the first period on Manny Malhotra's strike, Thomas shut down Vancouver and permitted his team a chance to come back.

Red Sox carry the day, trounce Huskies

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Red Sox finished off their first day of spring training games with a 13-2 win over Northeastern, Saturday night at City of Palms Park. The win came after the Sox claimed a 6-0 victory over Boston College earlier in the afternoon.

 

Of particular note in the Sox' win over the Huskies were the returns of Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron, who both sat out a substantial amount of time in 2010 with injuries. Ellsbury, who battled broken ribs in '10, grounded out and walked in his only two plate appearances, eventually being replaced in center field by Che-Hsuan Lin. Cameron (sports hernia) made his return as a designated hitter, going 0-for-2. Cameron is scheduled to play in the outfield for the Red Sox in their Grapefruit League opener against the Twins Sunday night.

 

Shortstop Jose Iglesias turned in a solid game for the Sox, going 2-for-3 with three RBI. Northeastern's Ryan Maguire of Arlington led off...

Ozzie to Jenks: Be careful what you say

FORT MYERS, Fla. — White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen told reporters after his team's workout in Glendale, Ariz., that Red Sox reliever Bobby Jenks should be careful what he says both about the Chicago organization and Guillen's son, Oney, whom Jenks had a war of words with following the pitcher's departure from the White Sox. 

 

"That's sad because it's coming from him," Guillen said, according to the Chicago Tribune. "That surprises me. Everybody in this organization did a lot of great things for him. Did he pitch good for us? Yes, very, very good. But in the meanwhile, just worry about setting up some games over there. Just worry about Boston, don't worry about the White Sox." 

 

"Too bad that all the stuff we had between me and Kenny interrupted his career because he did a lot of bad things last year," Guillen quipped. "We lied for him, we protected him. I'm the first...

Bruins sign Hnidy to one-year deal
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Saturday that they have signed defenseman Shane Hnidy to a one-year contract. Hnidy, who is still recovering from a shoulder injury suffered with the Coyotes in training camp, had been practicing with the team on a tryout basis since Wednesday.

 

Hnidy played parts of two seasons in Boston previously, skating in 108 regular season and 14 playoff games over the 2007-08 and 2008-09 campaigns. The B's traded a sixth-round pick and Brandon Bochenski to the Ducks for Hnidy during the 2007-08 season.

 

The Bruins also announced that they have signed forward Kirk MacDonald to an NHL contract. MacDonald has 12 goals and 15 assists for 27 points in 60 games for Providence this season.

Thunder coach: Perkins out 2-3 weeks

One of the lingering concerns with former Celtics center Kendrick Perkins was the health of his knees. He had anterior cruiciate ligament surgery on his right knee last summer and recently suffered a strained MCL in his left knee. Before the trade that sent him to Oklahoma City, the Celtics said he would miss the rest of their West Coast trip, but didn't offer any concrete timetable for his return.

 

Some of that mystery is now solved after Thunder coach Scott Brooks told reporters that Perkins will be out 2-3 weeks. Celtics president Danny Ainge told WEEI that he expected Shaquille O'Neal would return to the court before Perkins did. Shaq has been out with an Achilles injury.
