Lucic could face 10-game suspension
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Milan Lucic was given a game misconduct for leaving the bench to join an altercation in the first period of Saturday's game against the Canucks, and that could mean huge trouble for both the winger and coach Claude Julien.

The Bruins have been informed that Lucic was tossed for that reason and that the league will not decide if it was a legal change until after the game.

The fines/suspension section of Rule 70.10 reads as follows: 

"The first player to leave the players’ or penalty bench during an altercation or for the purpose of starting an altercation from either or both teams shall be suspended automatically without pay for the next ten (10) regular League and/or Play-off games of his team."

It later adds the following:

"The Coach(es) of the team(s) whose player(s) (including goalkeepers) left the players’ bench(es) or penalty bench(es)during an altercation shall be suspended,...

O'Brien: 'I'm the leader of this family' at PSU

Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien was formerly introduced as the 15th head coach in Penn State history on Saturday. O’Brien takes over the program from legendary coach Joe Paterno, who was ousted after an investigation led to charges of sexual assault by retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Although O’Brien is tasked with restoring a tarnished program, he is excited to begin. “I’m the leader of this family now,” O’Brien said during his introductory press conference. “I can’t wait to get going on this, get everyone headed in the right direction.”

O’Brien will fulfill his commitment as Patriots offensive coordinator throughout New England’s playoff run. “There’s no way I can stand up in front of our football team and our recruits and talk about loyalty and commitment and then leave the Patriots at the start of a playoff run," he said.

Belichick: O'Brien, Penn State 'great match'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick issued a statement Saturday in the wake of the news that offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien has been named the new head coach at Penn State:

“Over the course of his long coaching career, Bill O’Brien has met every personal and professional challenge head on with great passion and competitiveness. I expect Bill to draw on his deep background in college football and the NFL to continue attracting and developing top players. For five years, Bill’s outstanding work with our quarterbacks and entire offense has led to record-setting performances. His presence and command before our team has grown into that of a inspirational leader. This is a great match between a storied program and a old-school football coach. Bill will be up to the task and I couldn’t be happier for him, Colleen and the O’Brien family.”

The Patriots are expected to hire Josh McDaniels as an offensive assistant who will join the team as a coach for the upcoming playoffs and then become offensive coordinator in 2012, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. McDaniels, who was New England's offensive coordinator from 2006 through 2008 before departing for a head coaching job with the Broncos, was offensive coordinator for the Rams last season. McDaniels will replace outgoing offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, who will become head coach at Penn State at the end of New England's postseason run.
