WILMINGTON -- With the 3-5-0 Bruins returning to practice Monday at Ristuccia Arena, goaltender Tim Thomas spoke of the team's lack of success to begin the season. The Bruins were 6-2-0 out of the gate last season, with Thomas registering three shutouts. Now, the Bruins are looking for what they had a season ago, but Thomas said they have to work for it.
"It's a different year, different challenge," Thomas said. "We're in a different spot. It's how we react to it that's going to be the key.

“We’ve had a few days away from here, so he’s gotten an opportunity to get some more healing and treatment, and we’ll see where he is when we get out on the field this week,” Belichick said of Mayo. “But he’s certainly making progress, and it would be great to have him back out there whenever that happens.”
Amid speculation that the Red Sox might have interest in tallking to Blue Jays manager John Farrell about their managerial vacancy, the former Sox pitching coach tried to distance himself from those rumors.
"I have no idea and no comment on what's happening in Boston," Farrell wrote to sportsnet.ca's Shi Davidi. "I am focused right now on preparing for what is best for the Blue Jays in 2012."
Farrell left Boston following the 2010 season and guided the Jays to an 81-81 record this year. As WEEI.com's Rob Bradford wrote Monday, Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopolous is on record as saying the team would not stop employees from talking to other teams about openings.

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.
