Julien: Capitals 'were the better team'
By: DJ Bean

After the Bruins failed to make it out of the first round for the first time in four years, Bruins coach Claude Julien gave credit where credit was due by commending the defensively tight and shot-blocking Capitals. 

"At the end of the series, when you look at their team and you look at ours, they were the better team," Julien said. "They had more guys going than we did and they played us tough."

The Bruins became the second consecutive defending Stanley Cup champions to be eliminated in the first round, as the Blackhawks were bounced by the Canucks to open last postseason. Julien mentioned the difficulty with putting together a successful season following the Bruins' 2011 championship, but he said the series ultimately came down to the Bruins being outplayed. 

"Right now, I'm not going to stand here and nitpick at our team because when I look at this hockey club and what it went through last year, and you...

Capital punishment: B's lose Game 7 in OT

Joel Ward tapped in a rebound of a Mike Knuble shot just 2:57 into the first overtime to lead the Capitals over the Bruins, 2-1, in a tense Game 7 Wednesday night at TD Garden. It marked the first time in Stanley Cup playoff history that all seven games were decided by one goal. The defending champion Bruins -- who won three Game 7 showdowns en route to winning the Stanley Cup last year -- received an ovation as they left the ice. 

The Bruins carried play in the opening minutes, outshooting the Caps 6-3. But the first major mistake was committed by the Bruins and it led directly to the first goal of the game. 

Milan Lucic took a loose puck at the left half-wall and tried to start up the ice to begin a rush. But Lucic lost control of the puck and Jason Chimera pounced on it. He fed John Carlson, who then took a shot from the right point. Matt Hendricks screened Tim Thomas in front and got a piece of the shot before it flew past Thomas with...

Elbow was bothering Crawford in February

Speaking on the pregame show on the WEEI Radio Network Wednesday night, Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine said that Carl Crawford's left elbow may have been bothering him earlier than first reported. (To listen to the interview, click here.)

"Today I heard from the training staff that he said he had a little feeling when he got to spring training," Valentine said. "I never heard about that. I don't know if the staff really did, either. I don't know if this is a major situation, but again, I'm not close to the situation."

Crawford is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews to receive a second opinion on his ailing elbow, which Valentine said acted up on the outfielder when throwing a ball during batting practice following five days of inactivity.

"The only thing I heard is he hadn't been throwing in a...

Bard not available in relief Wednesday

Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine had initially indicated that Daniel Bard would be available in relief Wednesday night while appearing on The Big Show with Glenn Ordway and Michael Holley; however, later in the day Valentine changed his mind and Bard threw a side session and will not be available in the series finale against the Twins at Target Field. Valentine did reiterate that Bard would still be making his scheduled start Friday night in Chicago.

"It was a collective suggestion," Valentine said of the decision to pitch Bard out of the bullpen prior to his next start. "It's very temporary. He might get another inning tonight, but he will be starting on Friday. When we had the rainout and the off day combined I thought it was best to try to keep the other four guys as regular a rotation as possible and not move Jon and Josh back seven days in between starts. I talked to Daniel about that and it was well received. Since it has been a while...

Amonte on M&M: Pressure all on Capitals

CSNNE hockey analyst Tony Amonte joined Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about the Bruins' Game 7 matchup with the Capitals.

Some are saying the pressure is on the Bruins as the favorite, but Amonte sees it differently.

"For Washington, I think they're a little bit more nervous, those guys, really never been in this situation," Amonte said. "Obviously, they had a great chance to close it out the other night in Game 6. They're the guys that have got to start pressing. They're the ones under the pressure now. I think if the Bruins just play their game, this one should just fall right into their laps."

Added Amonte: "It would be a big disappointment for [the Bruins] not be to able to advance this year. I think they got a great seed, the No. 2 seed in the East. They draw probably the most up-and-down team all year in the Washington Capitals. The Capitals really never seemed to establish anything all year. They...
