Lakers' Artest speaks on Pierce

Prior to the Celtics–Lakers game Sunday, Lakers forward Ron Artest spoke to about his rivalry with Paul Pierce over the years. While Artest clearly has respect for Pierce, the two have engaged in heated battles during their careers.


“Paul’s a hell of a player,” Artest said. “I think Paul likes me because he’s real competitive. When I was at my prime defensively — which I’m getting back to thanks to the Lakers trainers — when I was at my prime defensively there wasn’t really anyone who could do anything. There were only a few players. But then when you get all these accolades and everybody speaks highly of you, I take you on TV and I show how bad of a player you actually are, you want to come back and do something.


“So there were games where I exposed Paul sometimes, and there were games where he showed what type of player he was. So for a guy like...

Leafs trade for Giguere, Phaneuf

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired veteran Jean-Sebastien Giguere from the Anaheim Ducks Sunday afternoon in exchange for Vesa Toskala and Jason Blake. Giguere had to waive his no-trade clause to accommodate the trade. Toronto also acquired defenseman Dion Phaneuf and Keith Aulie as well as forward Fredrik Sjostrom from the Calgary Flames in exchange for Ian White, Matt Stajan and Jamal Mayers. For more on the trades, click here.


While there has been speculation that the Bruins might consider shopping goalie Tim Thomas, the Giguere acquisition would take the Leafs out of consideration as a possible suitor. Sunday's deals could trigger additional trade activity around the league.

Kings deal B's 7th straight loss in SO

BOSTON — The Los Angeles Kings outscored the Bruins 3-2 in the shootout, and the Bruins matched their longest losing streak in nearly 13 years with a 3-2 loss at TD Garden. The Bruins also have lost six straight home games, their longest drought since the 1924-25 team dropped 11 straight home games. Marco Sturm marked his return from a leg injury by tallying his team-leading 16th goal of the season midway through the second period to tie the game, 1-1. Then, just 80 seconds into the third period and with the Bruins on their seventh power play of the night, Mark Recchi redirected a pass from David Krejci past Jonathan Quick to give the B's at 2-1 advantage. But it was Krejci's hooking call that led to the equalizer for the Kings, as Anze Kopitar scored three minutes later. The game featured a matchup of Team USA goalies for the upcoming Vancouver Olympics as Tim Thomas started for the Bruins against Quick for the Kings. For complete coverage, visit the...

Sturm, Begin return as Thornton sits

BOSTON  --  With the Bruins languishing with an NHL-low 128 goals, Marco Sturm returned to action on Saturday night after missing six games with a leg injury and scored his team-leading 16th goal of the season. The Bruins also welcomed Steve Begin back after missing the last five games with a lower body injury. Shawn Thornton and Vladimir Sobotka were healthy scratches to make room on the 20-man game roster. Thornton, with just one goal in 50 games, and Sobotka (4g, 3a in 43 games) have been very disappointing in their production as forwards and the Bruins are in desperate need of a jump-start to their offense.
