Bruins defenseman Tomas Kaberle spoke Sunday about the Bruins' stuggles on the power play (the team is 7-for-80 since acquiring him in late February) and how he's fared in his Boston tenure. Expected to be a major addition, Kaberle has not impacted the team as well as many anticipated, and it isn't out of the question to wonder whether the team could be hesitant about re-signing the pending free agent this summer.
"I always put a lot of pressure on myself," Kaberle said Sunday at TD Garden. "Hopefully I can prove why I'm here. I would like to help with every little thing I can do on the ice. Obviously, I am one of the guys on the PP and it would be nice to see something going there."
Kaberle had major struggles in the first two games of the series, causing the turnover that led to Brian Gionta's game-winning goal in Game 1 and having difficulty keeping the puck in the offensive zone in Game 2. He has been able to turn a...
NEW YORK -- Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni took a subtle shot at Rajon Rondo prior to Game 4 of the Celtics' first-round playoff series with New York. "He's a very good player," D'Antoni said. "I'd like to see him play in Minnesota and see how he does. Everybody's tied together and they have three Hall of Famers playing out there."
Celtics coach Doc Rivers responded, "You play with those guys, that’s probably what you’re going to get. I don’t think he would trade it. I think he enjoys playing with them. If there is a negative side — I guess — that would be it. No matter how well you play, the question will be [that]. And someday that will be answered, too. I've got a feeling he’ll answer them all in the way he’s answering them now."
Mike Cameron gets the start in right field in place of J.D. Drew Sunday, with Marco Scutaro in at shortstop and Jed Lowrie getting the day off. The following is the lineup the Sox will send against righty Matt Palmer and the Angels in the teams' series finale:
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Dustin Pedroia 2B
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
Kevin Youkilis 3B
David Ortiz DH
Mike Cameron RF
Carl Crawford LF
Jarrod Saltalamacchia C
Marco Scutaro SS
John Lackey P

The Bruins did not practice Sunday after their 2-1 victory in double-overtime over the Canadiens on Saturday night, though select members of the team and coach Claude Julien were at TD Garden to discuss the state of affairs with the team leading the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, 3-2.
The B's, who found themselves in a hole after dropping the first two games of the season, have won three straight games, including the last two in overtime. Now one win away from going to the Eastern Conference semifinals for the third time in as many years, Julien said he does not anticipate an easy time as the B's try to clinch the series in Montreal on Tuesday.
"I think we just have to turn the page here and understand there is another full game to be played," Julien said Sunday. "When you win three in a row you should feel confident. But again, there is a lot of work to be done. We know this next game is going to be the toughest one. You...
Daisuke Matsuzaka delivered his second straight outing of utter dominance. The right-hander permitted just one hit -- a comebacker off the bat of Alberto Callaspo that nearly tore his head off in the second inning -- over eight shutout innings to lead the Red Sox past the Angels, 5-0. The Sox have now won seven of eight, while claiming wins in 12 of their last 13 against the Halos dating to last year.
Matsuzaka had one of his better pitch mixes in memory. His 91-92 mph fastball, slider, changeup and cutter and generated a number of swings and misses as the right-hander punched out nine, his most since last May. The right-hander became the first pitcher since Freddy Garcia in 2006 to pitch at least seven shutout innings while allowing one or fewer hits in back-to-back outings; the last Red Sox to accomplish the feat was Pedro Martinez in 2002.
The Sox provided all the offensive support that Matsuzaka would need in the second inning, when Carl...
