Seguin, Bruins beat Habs in shootout
By: DJ Bean

Tyler Seguin scored the only goal in a shootout as the Bruins defeated the Canadiens, 4-3, Wednesday night at Bell Centre. 

The Bruins blew a two-goal lead in the third period, surrendering goals to Max Pacioretty and Erik Cole to tie the game after the B's had led, 3-1. They had only two shots on goal in the second period, but bounced back with a strong effort in overtime before Tim Thomas blanked the Habs in the shootout. Thomas is now a perfect 5-0 in shootouts this season. 
 
The Bruins first got on the board with Andrew Ference's fifth goal of the season, which set a new career high for the veteran defenseman. Mathieu Darche tied the game for the Habs with a shorthanded goal early in the second period, but masterful work from Benoit Pouliot on Chris Campoli gave the B's the lead back. Patrice Bergeron added to the lead with a power-play goal.
 
Brad Marchand could be getting a call...

Celtics stuck in low gear, lose to Pistons

In one of their worst performances of the season, the Celtics blew a winnable game and lost to the lowly Pistons, 98-88 at TD Garden.

Rajon Rondo scored a career-high 35 points and for the first time in his career he has scored 30+ points in consecutive games. But that was small consolation for the Celtics who missed 13 free throws.

Kevin Garnett missed his first game of the season with a strained hip flexor. His absence was felt on the defensive end as the Pistons shot 47 percent and center Greg Monroe had little trouble scoring 22 points on 11-for-14 shooting. Ben Gordon also had 22 points off the bench and scored 12 points in the fourth quarter.

Of the veteran stars who did play, Paul Pierce scored just two points in the first three quarters and Ray Allen didn't make his first shot from the floor until the final minute of action. Chris Wilcox did have 17 points and nine rebounds starting in place of Garnett.

The Celtics head to...

Valentine: Crawford may miss start of '12

When asked by reporters in Fort Myers, Fla. Wednesday if Carl Crawford might miss the first few weeks of the regular season, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said the scenario was a distinct possibility. Crawford underwent surgery on his left wrist in January, with the organization suggesting at the time the outfielder might miss Opening Day.

"I wouldn't be surprised if Carl's a few weeks into the season before he's really ready to go,'' Valentine said. "I wouldn't be surprised, nor disappointed if that's what nature dictates as the healing process."

"When he's ready and he's healed, he is going to be a welcome addition to our team, whenever that is," Valentine later added. "The more I've looked at Carl on film and tried to evaluate the whole thing, he's really special and we really need him. If it's later, then that's when it will be."

With Crawford not being able to swing a bat well into spring training,...

Garnett out for Celtics, Wilcox starts

Kevin Garnett missed his first game of the season with a strained hip flexor on Wednesday against the Pistons. Garnett had started al 28 games for the Celtics, the only player to appear in every game. Chris Wilcox started in his place.

Garnett's status was a gametime decision, leading to hopes that he could be available to play on Thursday against the Bulls. Jermaine O'Neal did return to the lineup after missing two games with knee and shoulder injuries and Mickael Pietrus (knee) was also active.

Pedroia: 'We have talent' to win World Series

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia made his weekly appearance on The Big Show on Wednesday. Pedroia was asked if he expects the collapse in September 2011 and the subsequent fallout to be a major topic in spring training and if there is a still a feeling of unease after multiple offseason stories had unnamed team sources critical of both players and management.

"I've never been a part of something like that [last year], so some of that will be interesting," Pedroia said. "To be honest with you, if someone on our team was saying those things about other teammates that's a problem. And I honestly can't see any of our guys ratting out other teammates. That's over the line, I don't care who it was or what was going on or who had their source or what, as far as I'm concerned I'm showing up ready to play baseball. I don't care about any of the BS that's going on, the media, all that stuff is not going to affect how I go about my job. If...
