Caron's three points leads B's past Leafs
By: DJ Bean

Jordan Caron scored two goals and added an assist as the Bruins defeated the Maple Leafs, 5-4, Tuesday at Air Canada Centre. 

Tyler Seguin also did his usual damage against the Leafs, scoring two goals to increase his team-leading total to 24 on the season. With the win, the B's improved to 5-0-0 against Toronto this season.

The Leafs got on the board early with a goal from Carl Gunnarsson, but Caron tied the game late in the first period. The B's outscored the Leafs, 4-2, in the second period thanks to goals from Seguin, Chris Kelly and Caron. The B's held a 5-3 lead entering the third period Mikhail Grabovski made it a one-goal game 13:13 into the third. 

Tim Thomas stopped 25 of 29 shots faced. He has now allowed four goals in back-to-back games and has allowed three goals in each of his last three starts.

The Bruins will host the Sabres at TD Garden Thursday and will have the opportunity to win back-to-back games for the...

Harvard captures NCAA berth as Penn loses

With Princeton defeating visiting Penn Tuesday night, 62-52, Harvard has clinched its first-ever outright Ivy League title and secured its first NCAA tournament berth since 1946.

"We are thrilled and honored to have an opportunity to compete in the 2012 NCAA tournament," Harvard coach Tommy Amaker said in a statement. "This is a tremendous moment for Harvard University, our basketball program and our community. Go Crimson!"

The Crimson, who finished the regular season over the weekend with wins at Columbia and Cornell, are 26-4 overall and 12-2 in the Ancient Eight, one game better than Penn. The Quakers need to beat their arch rivals Tuesday to set up a one-game playoff that would have determined the league's NCAA tournament representative. Instead, Princeton, the team that beat Harvard in last year's playoff, did the Crimson a favor by jumping out to an early lead and keeping Penn at a safe distance most of the...

Celtics prepared to be without O'Neal

Jermaine O'Neal will miss his sixth straight game on Tuesday and while the Celtics wait for him to make a decision on his ailing wrist, they are planning on moving forward without him.

"Obviously it doesn't look good, but we're prepared to be this, honestly," coach Doc Rivers said. "If J.O. plays, it's an extra body for us. But it's like I said, after the break, we were going with this lineup, regardless."

The lineup includes Kevin Garnett at center and Brandon Bass at forward and it has been good for the Celtics, who have won four straight since the All-Star break. Rivers said the team is giving O'Neal time to consider having surgery, which could be season-ending. 

"You know how I am with injuries and stuff. That stuff works its way out," Rivers said. "They don't need the coach involved in it. That's just the way I feel."

Reports: Colts will release Manning

The Colts are set to release quarterback Peyton Manning, according to multiple outlets, with the franchise making the official announcement on Wednesday.

After not missing a start since he entered the league as a rookie in 1998, the four-time MVP missed the entire 2011 season after his third neck surgery in 19 months, leaving his future in doubt. However, it was revealed Tuesday afternoon that Indianapolis will not pick up the final four years remaining on Manning's contract, which will allow the quarterback to become a free agent and take the Colts off the hook when it comes to the $28 million bonus that would have been due to the quarterback if he was on the roster going forward.

The 35-year-old Manning, the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft, has broken all of the Colts' franchise passing records. In addition, he has taken Indianapolis to the playoffs 11 times, and led the Colts to seven division titles in the last eight...

Bard, Aceves both sharp vs. Orioles

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Daniel Bard tossed a pair of shutout innings and Alfredo Aceves followed suit with two zeros of his own as the Red Sox claimed a 5-4 win over the Orioles at JetBlue Park on Tuesday afternoon.

Bard threw 31 pitches (21 strikes) while allowing just one baserunner on a walk and striking out two in his first multi-inning outing of the spring. Aceves was even more efficient, throwing 19 of his 26 pitches for strikes while delivering two perfect innings in which he struck out two.

Bard and Aceves are both being stretched out as candidates for the Red Sox rotation. While Aceves made four big league starts for the Sox last year, Bard has not made a professional start since 2008, and so by his own admission, there are adjustments to such elements as pitching out of the windup and developing a pre-game routine to start.

While the Red Sox took an early 4-0 lead, prospect Alex Wilson struggled in his inning-plus of work, allowing...
