Bergeron leaves practice, receives stitches
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Patrice Bergeron left Tuesday's practice after a puck off the stick of teammate Johnny Boychuk bounced off a partition in the glass and hit him in the chin. Bergeron was taken to the hospital, where he received stitches and had x-rays taken. Coach Claude Julien said that the x-rays were taken  "just as a precaution" and that he expects Bergeron to be in the lineup Wednesday night against the Canadiens. 

 

Bergeron leads the Bruins with 44 points (19 G, 25 A) on the season, and has eight points over his last six games. He was named the league's No. 1 star of the month for January, a month in which he led all NHL scorers with 17 points.

Report: Sox to sign softball star

According to a report from Stuff.co.nz, 17-year-old New Zealand softball catcher Te Wera Bishop has signed with the Red Sox.

 

"We have been impressed by his abilities behind the plate, he has excellent hands and a strong throwing arm, and with instruction from our Boston Red Sox coaches, we are confident he can make the appropriate changes from softball to baseball," Red Sox scout Jon Deeble told the website.

 

The report suggests that Bishop — who tried out for several major league teams last month — will attend the Australian MLB Academy in June. He is expected to sign a contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday.

 

"I don't know what to expect. I'm just over the moon," Bishop said.

Mashup: SB anthem flub leads to betting flap

Christina Aguilera's Super Bowl national anthem performance continues to cause controversy — this time with bettors. There was a betting line (offshore only) of 1 minutes, 54 seconds on how long it would take the singer to complete the tune. One betting website timed it at 1:53.7, but there were two issues. First, she may have included an extra "oh" at the end, extending it past 1:54. Second, she messed up a line in the song, causing some to question whether it should count. At least one website indicated it would pay off both sides of the bet because of the questions. Meanwhile, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie defended Aguilera and talked about her own shaky performance at halftime, saying the nerves were tough to control.

Cross-fire: BC beats BU in Beanpot OT

Tommy Cross scored on the power play at 3:17 of overtime to lift Boston College to a 3-2 win over Boston University in the second Beanpot semifinal Monday night at TD Garden. Cross fired a shot from the high slot just 16 seconds after Ryan Ruikka was whistled for a cross check. The Eagles advance to next Monday night's Beanpot championship game, looking for their second straight title — 16th overall — against Northeastern, a 4-0 winner over Harvard in the first game of the Garden twinbill. 

  

BC, the 2010 Beanpot champ, took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Philip Samuelsson at 14:37 of the first. With the BC crowd in a frenzy, the Terriers came back just 38 seconds later to tie it on a goal by Wade Megan. BU took the lead, 2-1, on the only goal of the second period when Corey Trivino beat John Muse. 

 

The Eagles appeared to tie it late in the second period when Pat Mullane came down the...

Bobcats' bench nips Celtics

Despite leading scorer Stephen Jackson getting ejected in the second quarter, the Bobcats handed the Celtics their second loss in the past three games, 94-89 in Charlotte on Monday night.

 

Led by 19 points and 16 rebounds by Gerald Wallace as well as 44 points from their bench, the Bobcats (22-29) took advantage of a depleted Celtics bench that included the absences of Shaquille O'Neal and Semih Erden due to injury. Shaun Livingston and Gerald Henderson combined for 33 points off the bench for Charlotte.

 

Ray Allen led all scorers with 25 points, including a pair of 3-pointers that left him two away from breaking Reggie Miller's all-time 3-point record. Rajon Rondo added 10 points and 14 rebounds, but the Celtics fell to 38-13 on the season.
