Speaking for the first time since his injury Tuesday night, Montreal forward Max Pacioretty said he was “upset and disgusted” that the league didn’t suspend Zdeno Chara for the incident.
“I am upset and disgusted that the league didn’t think enough of (the hit) to suspend him,” Pacioretty told TSN. “I not mad for myself, I’m mad because if other players see a hit like that and think it’s okay, they won’t be suspended, then other players will get hurt like I got hurt.
“It’s been an emotional day. I saw the video for the first time this morning. You see the hit, I’ve got a fractured vertebrae, I’m in hospital and I thought the league would do something, a little something. I’m not talking a big number, I don’t know, one game, two games, three games ... whatever, but something to show that it’s not right.
“I heard (Chara...
Mo Williams had 28 points and DeAndre Jordan added 21 as the Clippers raced out to a 23-point lead and held on for a 108-103 win over the Celtics, who had their five-game winning streak snapped.

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Clay Buchholz continued his impressive spring on Wednesday night, tossing four scoreless innings for the Red Sox in a 2-1 win over the (split-squad) Orioles at City of Palms Park. Buchholz has yet to allow a run in his three spring training starts.
It wasn't an easy night for Buchholz, who pitched out of a couple of jams. He allowed a leadoff double to Jake Fox in the second inning, but Fox was thrown out at home on a Brendan Harris fielder's choice two hitters later. In the fourth inning, Buchholz surrendered a leadoff single to Felix Pie and a one-out double to Josh Bell. But he was able to force a pop-out to Harris and get Brandon Snyder to ground out to Marco Scutaro, stranding two runners in scoring position.
Snyder would be the final batter faced for Buchholz, who gave up four hits in his four innings, striking out three with no walks. He threw 56 pitches, 35 for strikes.
NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith said Wednesday night that the idea of an 18-game regular season is off the table in the ongoing Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations between players and owners.
Speaking in Washington, D.C. with radio station 106.7 FM “The Fan,” Smith said for the first time publicly that there’s no way the players would agree an expanded season. Smith reiterated those comments shortly afterward in a conversation with SI.com.
“First of all, the league has never presented a formal proposal for 18 games,” he said. “But more importantly, it’s something that our players don’t want. Eighteen games is not in the best interest of our players’ safety, so we’re not doing it.”
The 18-game schedule is thought to be one of the three major sticking points between the two sides, with the other two points being the redistribution of $9 billion in revenue...
