Bruins recall Caron from Providence
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- One day after sending him to the AHL, the Bruins have recalled forward Jordan Caron from Providence. Caron, who had been a healthy scratch in the Bruins' last two games since the return of David Krejci, registered an assist in Sunday against Albany. 

Krejci was with the B's as they took the ice for practice Monday, skating as the fourth member of Krejci's line with Benoit Pouliot and Rich Peverley.

In four NHL games this season, Caron has no points and a minus-2 rating.

Mashup: Falcons say Lions taunted hurt Ryan

The Lions dropped their second straight game Sunday, and for the second week in a row they are caught up in a controversy for their behavior on the field. The Falcons accused Lions defensive linemen Ndamukong Suh and Cliff Avril of taunting Matt Ryan while the Falcons quarterback was down on the turf with an injury.

"I lost a whole lot of respect for 90 [Suh] today, and also 92 [Avril], the [expletive] they were doing when Matt got hurt," Falcons receiver Roddy White told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "That was unacceptable. ... Like 92 was kicking his feet, saying, 'Get him off the field.' We don't do stuff like that. We don't rally over guys when they get hurt. It was just inappropriate behavior."

Added Falcons center Todd McLure: "I had respect for Suh before the game. But when Matt was on the ground, the things he was saying and the trash he was talking was definitely uncalled for. ... [He said], 'Get the cart,' and...

Torre: MLB will consider ban on drinking

Joe Torre, Major League Baseball's executive vice president of baseball operations, said Sunday from the World Series in Arlington, Texas, that his office planned to investigate the situation at Fenway Park involving drinking in the clubhouse and might consider a league-wide ban of alcohol.

"I know I have some plans to talk to some people," Torre said. "It's something we're going to look at and find the best way to approach it. I'm comfortable with it, because I've played and managed, I have no problem talking to someone in regards to baseball -- whether it's behavior or otherwise."

According to multiple reports, the Red Sox are one of 12 major league teams that allow alcohol in the clubhouse. After this controversy, there might be none.

"I want people to understand the nature of, if we do...

Texas ties WS behind Holland, Napoli

Derek Holland tossed 8 1/3 scoreless innings and catcher Mike Napoli blasted a three-run homer to lift the Rangers over the visiting Cardinals 4-0 Sunday night, tying the World Series at two games each. Holland, who yielded just two hits and walked two, struck out seven on the way to the win. Meanwhile, Napoli connected in the sixth inning (his third homer of the postseason), giving Holland more than enough support. Josh Hamilton added an RBI single for the Rangers. Game 5 is set for Monday at 8:05 p.m. in Texas.

Selig sets deadline for Theo compensation

Speaking to a group of reporters in Arlington, Texas, prior to Game 4 of the World Series, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig said that the Red Sox and Cubs have until Nov. 1 to agree upon the compensation the Sox will receive from Chicago in exchange for Theo Epstein to become the Cubs' president of baseball operations.

"They have until Nov. 1, Theo and Ben and all the other parties involved," Selig said, according to Comcast Sports Net New England. "Hopefully they can get things done. I always encourage clubs to try to get things done between themselves. Somehow, the commissioner has enough things of controversy [to deal with].
 ... They'll either get it done or they won't. If they don't, then I will."

The teams have been negotiating a settlement in regards to Epstein switching organization for 1 1/2 weeks. 

Epstein, who submitted his resignation from the Red Sox Friday night, will be introduced in his...
