Cubs hire Red Sox scout Matt Dorey

According to multiple industry sources, the Cubs are hiring scout Matt Dorey from the Red Sox. Dorey, who spent the last four years as a Red Sox area scout, will be a national cross-checker for Chicago.

Dorey, who started with the Sox (having been hired by former Sox director of amateur scouting Jason McLeod, who is now the Cubs assistant GM) in the Northwest in 2007 before moving to cover Louisiana and Texas in the last two years, was credited with the scouting and signing of a number of prominent Sox prospects in recent drafts, including 2010 picks Anthony Ranaudo, Garin Cecchini, Kendrick Perkins and Lucas LeBlanc.

At the time that he was introduced as Cubs president of baseball operations, Theo Epstein said that it was possible that he would bring over and promote one employee from the Red Sox. Dorey is the first person whom Epstein and the Cubs have added from the Boston baseball operations staff.

Sources: Boyle to join Sox training staff

According to multiple sources, longtime Boston University strength and conditioning coach Mike Boyle is on the verge of joining the Red Sox as a member of their newly-revamped training staff. Boyle, a Springfield College graduate who currently runs the local training facility "Body By Boyle," has previously also worked with the Bruins.

Boyle will not carry the title of strength and conditioning coach, which had been vacant after the firing of Dave Page following the 2011 season. The team is in the process of reorganizing their training staff, having already hired former Cleveland Indians trainer Rick Jameyson to become its new head trainer, with Mike Reinold concentrating on the rehabilitation process for the players.

Holiday cheer: B's thrill in win over Habs

Tim Thomas stopped 16-of-17 shots in the third period and Brad Marchand scored a spectacular backhander late in the third to lead the Bruins to their fifth straight win, a 3-2 triumph over the Canadiens Monday night at TD Garden. The Bruins, who improved to 19-2-1 in their last 22 games, stand atop the Eastern Conference with 45 points. 

Just under three minutes into the second period, Andrew Ference fired a pass from behind Carey Price and off David Krejci's left skate to break the 1-1 tie. Krecji's sixth of the season was reviewed before being upheld as a good goal. The Bruins had taken a 1-0 lead in the first when Benoit Pouliot scored his second goal in as many games, taking a nice cross-slot pass from Rich Peverley to beat Carey Price. Peverley won the draw cleanly in the offensive right circle and skated in on goal before finding a wide open Pouliot for the one-goal lead. 

The lead lasted just 73 seconds as Tomas Plekanec took a...

Chiarelli: Hit not suspendable on its own
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Monday night that while he did not feel Milan Lucic's hit on Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo was a punishable act, Lucic's entire body of work is what ultimately led to him being suspended for one game. 

"I talked to Brendan Shanahan today following his sanction on Milan, the one-game suspension, and what was explained to me was that when there have been incidents before with a player, they look at the whole body of work," he said. "I don’t know if it’s as strong as being a repeat offender, but he’s done stuff in the past, according to hockey ops, that go to his character reference when they’re looking at putting up punishment. Brendan didn’t say this, but if it was his first incident, I would think maybe he wouldn’t have been suspended. Brendan didn’t say that, but that’s my take on the whole thing."

Lucic was suspended for one game for...
