Tim Thomas made 29 saves and picked up his second straight shutout (third of the season) as the Bruins blanked the Senators, 4-0, in Ottawa. He is now off to the best start by a Bruins goalie since Tiny Thompson 73 years ago.
David Krejci, Tyler Seguin, Jordan Caron, and Milan Lucic scored for the Bruin, who improved to 6-2-0 on the young season. The second and third lines saw shuffling during the first period, with Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder swapping spots in the second and third lines, but the offense did not suffer as a result on a night in which the Senators were particularly sloppy.
The team remains undefeated on the road (4-0) and in games started by Thomas (6-0). In starting 6-0, Thomas became the first Bruins goalie since Tiny Thompson 73 years ago to do so. With the shutout on Saturday, Tim Thomas is already approaching his career-high for a season. The veteran...
ESPN is reporting that Vikings quarterback Brett Favre feels that his injuries have "healed significantly," and that he expects to start on Sunday against the Patriots. Favre suffered two ankle fractures last Sunday night against the Packers, and his NFL record of 291 consecutive starts appeared to be in jeopardy. But, the ESPN report suggests, Favre now expects to continue his ironman streak.
The Patriots, according to head coach Bill Belichick on Friday, were planning as if that would be the case.
"We’ll prepare for all the players. The ones that play, we’ll try to defend. The ones that don’t, we won’t. It’s fairly straight forward, really," Belichick said of reports that Favre's ability to play could be in jeopardy. "It’s...
CHESTNUT HILL -- Chase Rettig earned his first win as the starting quarterback and tailback Montel Harris had 178 yards of total offense, as Boston College snapped a five-game losing streak with a 16-10 victory over Clemson Saturday at Alumni Stadium.
With Harris rushing 36 times for 142 yards on the day, Rettig passed only 16 times, completing nine. One of those completions was 36 yards to a wide-open Harris for second-quarter touchdown, giving BC its first lead at home since Kent State on Sept. 11. Rettig overcame another struggling effort early, throwing an interception to Rashard Hall, returned 52 yards for Clemson's only touchdown of the day.
Nate Freese hit all three of his field goal attempts - twice from 36 yards and once from 21 - in support of a staunch defensive effort. All-American candidate Luke Kuechly picked off a pass near midfield with 1:42 left in the fourth and then knocked down a "Hail Mary...
Tim Thomas did not participate in the Bruins' optional morning skate in Ottawa on Saturday, but Claude Julien told reporters that the 36-year-old netminder will be in goal for the B's when they take on the Senators on Saturday night.
Thomas has won all five of his starts this season, allowing just three goals in the process. He currently leads the NHL with a 0.60 goals against average and a .981 save percentage. He is tied for the NHL lead with two shutouts. Tuukka Rask, who started the season-opener in Prague, has lost each of his two starts this season.

Already down Jermaine O'Neal with swelling in the left knee and Kendrick Perkins out for another several months, the Celtics front court suffered another potential blow on Friday night when Shaquille O'Neal left with just over five minutes remaining with a bruised right knee.
O'Neal collided with Amar'e Stoudemire in the fourth quarter and left with 5:11 remaining in the contest. He did not return.
"I don't know," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said afterward. "I'm not sure. That collision with him and Stoudemire, he clipped [Stoudemire's] shin. I saw that. It didn't look good, I can tell you that, when he was walking off the floor." O'Neal said after the game that he didn't believe the injury was serious and that he did not expect to miss any time.
As for Jermaine O'Neal, the center had swelling in his left knee following the loss in Cleveland on Wednesday. He had an...
