Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo, who Boston fans remember for his inconsistency and insult of Tim Thomas in the Stanley Cup finals -- is off to a slow start this season, and Vancouver fans are letting him know they don't like it. During Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers, Luongo was booed by his own fans.
Said Luongo Wednesday: "The good thing is it has happened so many times, I've gotten used to it."
Luongo's teammates, including backup goalie Cory Schneider, came to his defense. “It kind of sucks," said Schneider, a Boston College product. "For a guy who’s done more for this franchise perhaps than any other goalie in the history of the team, you would think he might get a bit of slack or some more leeway.”
Also in the news, Jets coach Rex Ryan backed himself into a corner when he bragged Wednesday that he would have led the Chargers to multiple Super Bowl titles had he been named coach in 2007. After...

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres have had internal conversations about the merits of acquiring starter John Lackey should the Red Sox prove willing to eat almost all of the right-hander's remaining salary.
Lackey is still owed $45.75 million over the next three seasons under the terms of the five-year, $82.5 million deal he signed after the 2009 season. The 32-year-old (who turns 33 next week) is 26-23 with a 5.26 ERA in two seasons with the Sox, including a 12-12 record and 6.41 ERA in 2011, the worst ERA ever by a Sox starter in a season in which he threw at least 120 innings.
Padres manager Bud Black was Lackey's first big league pitching coach with the Angels, and that familiarity -- along with the spacious dimensions of PETCO Park and a change of scenery -- could be of benefit to the right-hander, who...
According to CSN Chicago, sources indicate that the Red Sox and Cubs have made 'significant progress' in their talks regarding compensation for general manager Theo Epstein.
The report states that enough momentum has been made that there is a chance an announcement regarding Epstein's move to Chicago could be made during an off day (potentially Friday) during the World Series if approved by baseball commissioner Bud Selig. If Selig does not give his approval, an announcement regarding Epstein would have to wait until after the World Series.
According to the report, the Cubs are eyeing Epstein to be the head of their baseball operations, with a chance of the current Red Sox GM to bring in somebody else to act as Chicago's general manager. CSN Chicago also reports that while Epstein was the first choice of...
Pinch-hitter Allen Craig delivered a two-out, run-scoring pinch-hit single in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Cardinals a 3-2 lead that stood up as the final score, as St. Louis claimed a home victory to win Game 1 of the World Series.
With two outs and David Freese on third base, the Rangers elected to walk No. 8 hitter Nick Punto intentionally in order to force the Cardinals to pinch-hit for starter Chris Carpenter. But the strategy backfired when Craig lined a single to right that ticked off the end of the glove of sliding right-fielder Nelson Cruz for the go-ahead run, breaking a 2-2 tie. With Carpenter out of the game, the Cardinals bullpen continued its tremendous postseason, logging three shutout innings to close out the Rangers.
Craig's knock came against reliever Alexi Ogando, but all three St. Louis runs were charged to C.J. Wilson, who suffered the loss. Carpenter allowed only a two-run homer by Mike Napoli -- an opposite...
