Horton saw teammates after win
By: DJ Bean

Claude Julien revealed a surprise to the Bruins following their 4-0 win over the Canucks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday: concussed right wing Nathan Horton.

Horton was declared out for the remainder of the playoffs due to a severe concussion, the result of a blindside hit from Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome Monday. He came in the room after Wednesday's game to pass on the team's 1980's jacket, awarded to the game's MVP. Horton still had the jacket in his stall because he had scored the game-winning goal in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals and the team did not want to take it from him. On Wednesday, he came in to give the jacket to Rich Peverley, who scored two goals filling in for Horton on the first line. 

"It was pretty emotional," Peverley said. "Nathan came in, and he's a big part of this team. Just to be able to see him and know that he's healthy and safe, that's very important to us."

Pedroia to get knee checked out in Boston

NEW YORK -- Dustin Pedroia will return to Boston Thursday to have his right knee examined. The ailment has been bothering him since landing on the knee during the Red Sox' game against the Orioles May 16.

The examination will be held at Massachusetts General Hospital and is viewed as precautionary, with the team wanting to ensure that the injury won't get any worse by continuing to play. While it is the same knee Pedroia experienced structural issues with during the 2010 season, the current injury is not related to last season's ailment. 

There is a strong possibility that Pedroia could be back in the Red Sox' lineup Friday, or at some point during the team's three-game series in Toronto over the weekend.

Pedroia is currently is hitting .247 after going 1-for-3, flying out to deep center field in his first two at-bats against Yankees starter A.J. Burnett. He has hit in five of his last six games, totaling a .304 (7-for-23) during the...

All even: B's dominate Canucks in Game 4

Rich Peverley scored twice filling in on the top line for the injured Nathan Horton and Tim Thomas turned aside all 38 shots for his third playoff shutout as the Bruins blanked the Canucks, 4-0, in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals, evening the series at 2-2. The series now shifts back to Rogers Arena in Vancouver for Game 5 on Friday night before returning to Boston for Game 6 Monday night. 

David Krejci played a huge role in putting the Bruins on top midway through the first period as he took a puck in the neutral zone and found Rich Peverley wide open on a rush. Peverley came in and cleanly beat Roberto Luongo five-hole to put the Bruins up, 1-0. Peverley took the place of Nathan Horton on the Bruins top line. Horton suffered a severe concussion in the first period of Game 3 on a hit from Aaron Rome and is out for the remainder of the series. 

The Bruins came out strong in the second and were rewarded when Ryder's snap shot from the...

Home runs help hand Red Sox first place

NEW YORK -- The Red Sox claimed sole possession of first place in the American League East thanks to a 11-6 win over the Yankees on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. The Sox jumped out to a 7-1 lead after four innings and never looked back.

The Sox put on an offensive show against Yankees starter A.J. Burnett and relievers Boone Logan and Lance Pendleton, managing 11 hits, including home runs by David Ortiz, Carl Crawford and J.D. Drew. Jacoby Ellsbury continued his hot hitting, coming away with three hits, while Marco Scutaro and Crawford each claimed a pair.

Sox starter Tim Wakefield did enough to claim his third win of the season, and 196th for his career, allowing five runs on five hits over 5 1/3 innings before giving way to Alfredo Aceves. Aceves pitched the final 3 2/3 innings, giving up one run and just four hits while striking out three and walking one batter.

Burnett, meanwhile, saw his ERA balloon to 4.37 after surrendering eight...

Tommy John surgeries for Hill, Daisuke set

NEW YORK -- Red Sox reliever Rich Hill will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left armThursday in Pensacola, Fla., with Dr. James Andrews performing the procedure. Starter Daisuke Matsuzaka will also have Tommy John surgery, with his operation scheduled to be performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum Friday.

Hill appeared in nine games for the Sox in 2011, allowing no runs and just three hits while striking out 12 and walking three in eight innings. The lefty hadn't allowed a run in 15 games with the Red Sox since joining the team in '10.

A native of Milton, Hill experienced his injury May 29 while pitching to Chicago's Adam Dunn. The hurler immediately grabbed his elbow after throwing a curveball -- his seventh pitch of the outing --  leading to an MRI being performed on the 31-year-old later that day.

Matsuzaka finishes '11 with a 3-3 mark and a 5.30 ERA. He pitched in eight games, with his last appearance coming on May...
