Report: Patriots to place Ron Brace on IR

According to the Boston Herald, Patriots defensive lineman Ron Brace "will almost certainly be placed on Injured Reserve" Monday, thus ending his season. Brace, a 2009 second-round draft pick out of Boston College, has been a strong presence on the line this season, recording 23 tackles. By placing him on the IR on Monday, the Herald reports, the Patriots will clear a roster spot for the return of linebacker Brandon Spikes, whose four-game suspension concludes on Monday, one day after the regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins.

 

Brace missed practice this week due to an elbow injury suffered in last week's 34-3 win over the Buffalo Bills. While his loss would negatively impact the Pats' depth on the defensive line, fellow lineman Myron Pryor...

Tuukka Time at last: Rask to start Saturday

After seven straight starts, it appears that Tim Thomas will finally be getting the day off on Saturday. Goaltender Tuukka Rask is slated to stand between the pipes on Saturday for the Bruins' contest against the Buffalo Sabres, marking the first time he will start since Dec. 15. After Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Thrashers, the Bruins were 4-2-1 during the stretch, which has seen them jump back into first place in the Northeast Division.

 

"Did [Thomas] look a little bit tired? Maybe,’’ Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters of Thomas' performance against Atlanta. "I still saw him making some big saves at crucial times. He played a decent game. When you look back at Timmy and the number of games he’s won for us this year, there’s no doubt about anything we did with him."

 

Thomas is 18-4-4 with a 1.74 goals-against mark and a .947 saves percentage. Rask is 2-7-1 with 2.57...

Pierce: 'I really didn't come to play today'

After scoring just 12 points and grabbing seven rebounds in 36 minutes of an 83-81 loss to the Hornets Friday, Paul Pierce was not about to make excuses for a team that was missing Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett. As a matter of fact, he put most of the blame squarely on his own shoulders. 

 

"Maybe Paul Pierce has to do a better job in stepping up his game," Pierce said in third person. "I really didn’t come to play to today, evident when you look up, six turnovers, but we only lose by two. The responsibility is on the guys out on the floor.

 

“Regardless of the injuries, I’ve [said before] injuries are going to happen. Regardless of the injuries, we’ve still got to show up to play. There’s no moral victories…and the guys that we put out there have got to be ready. We’re on the home court with guys who know how to play the game…a game that we feel like...
