Gregory Campbell led the way with a Gordie Howe hat trick as the Bruins got back to winning Thursday night, defeating the Devils, 4-1, in Newark.
Danius Zubrus set up Petr Sykora's 12th goal of the season late in the first period to give New Jersey the lead. The two teams played a scoreless second period before Andrew Ference tied the game with a shot from the top of the circle in the third period. Nathan Horton gave the B's their first lead of the night on the power play, scoring his third goal in the last two games.
Thirty-five seconds later, Campbell buried a rebound off a Shawn Thornton shot, giving the Bruins a two-goal lead with more than half a period left to play. Chris Kelly added an empty-netter.
Campbell's goal sealed the Gordie Howe hat trick for him, as he fought Brad Mills in the first period and assisted Ference's goal.
The Bruins will next play Saturday when they host the Eastern...
FOXBORO -- Former Patriots cornerback Ty Law, who was named one of the honorary captains for Sunday's AFC championship game against the Ravens, said Thursday he believes the New England defense -- and the secondary in particular -- has played "lights out" over the last few games.
"Yes, they struggled throughout the season, but had a lot of injuries and a lot of things that just weren’t going their way," Law said on Thursday. "And when you have a quarterback like Tom Brady and you can get that many points, it helps you out a lot.
"But they’ve stepped it up in a big way -- especially last week," Law added. "So hopefully, they can carry that over and gain that confidence from these last few performances and play that well on Sunday night, because Tom and that offense is clicking. All the defense has to do is step up, be productive and they’ll win the football game."
Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show for his weekly interview and addressed the talk of whether he would make a move involving any of his Big Three.
"It's just obvious," Ainge said. "Of course if we get the opportunity to make a trade that will help our team, we'll do it. I guess I was stating obvious answers and it became like a really big story.
"We've all known there's a window for this group, so we're constantly evaluating that and been evaluating it for the last couple of years," he continued. "I don't have anything on the books. I don't have have anything imminent. There's nothing out there that I'm actively doing. I'm being patient with this group of guys. They believe that their much better than they're playing right now, Doc [Rivers] believes they're much better than we're playing right now. I believe that too."
Ainge said he was disappointed by the team'...
OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Brian Waters told the media on Thursday that Bernard Pollard -- a teammate of Waters with the Chiefs -- "took pride" in being able to get a hit on Tom Brady in 2008, a Week 1 lunge at the knee that resulted in a torn ACL for the New England quarterback. Pollard, now with the Ravens, was asked Thursday if Waters was accurate in that assessment.
"I took pride because I didn't do anything wrong," Pollard said. "This is a game where anything can happen. I don't care about recognition, I don't care about being the face of the NFL, I'm just blessed to be able to do what I do."
Pollard wasn't flagged on the play, though the NFL instituted a rule after the 2008 season that penalized a player for making contact with a quarterback's knee.
"It's football, at the end of the day guys get hurt every Sunday," Pollard said. "I think the fact of the matter is that in this case it was Tom...
Speaking prior to the Boston Baseball Writers Dinner at the Copley Westin Hotel, Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington explained why the diagnosis of Carl Crawford's injured wrist wasn't made earlier in the offseason.
Crawford recently underwent surgery on his wrist after experiencing increased discomfort while ramping up his hitting regimen. It was an injury Cherington said the outfielder had felt to some degree during the season, but wasn't a concern for the player upon the completion of the regular season.
"I think whenever something like this happens we always go back and think about whether we could have found this out earlier, found something earlier. Having surgery in the first week of January is a lot better than the last week of March, but probably not as good as the first week in October," the Red Sox GM said.
"In this particular case, based on the research we've done, based on the conversations we've...
