Rask starting, Campbell out vs. Kings
By: DJ Bean

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will be between the pipes Tuesday as the Bruins take on the Kings at TD Garden. Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Tuesday's morning skate that he intends to play Thomas Wednesday against the Senators. 

Gregory Campbell was not on the ice for the morning skate. He will miss Tuesday's game and will "probably not" play Wednesday, according to Julien. Campbell is dealing with a foot injury, and Zach Hamill is expected to center the fourth line in his place. 

Daniel Paille, meanwhile, underwent a neuropsych evaluation Monday. The winger said the team was still awaiting results on the test, with Julien adding that he could play if he is cleared before the game.

Source: Sox agree to deal with Shoppach

According to a major league source, the Red Sox have reached an agreement with catcher Kelly Shoppach on a one-year, $1.35 million deal. The contract is guaranteed. News of the agreement was first reported by Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com (via twitter)

Shoppach, taken with the Sox' top pick in the 2001 draft, hit .176 with a .268 OBP, .339 slugging mark, .607 OPS and 11 homers in 87 games with the Rays last season. It marked the third straight season in which the 31-year-old has seen declines in his average, OBP, slugging percentage and OPS since a career-best 2008 season in which Shoppach hit .261/.348/.517/.865 with 21 homers for the Indians.

Shoppach made his big league debut with the Sox in 2005, playing nine games in the majors and going 0-for-15. He was traded that offseason to the Indians as part of the deal that resulted in the acquisition of center...

Gronk on D&C: 'So much room' to improve

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, in an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, said that despite catching 71 passes for 1,088 yards and 15 touchdowns (an NFL single-season record for a tight end), there remains plenty of room for him to elevate his game. Pats quarterback Tom Brady has said that Gronkowski has shown constant improvement in his two-season career ("Thanks, Tom," Gronkowski laughed), and the 22-year-old suggested that he is driven to do just that.

"It’s only my second year. I have so much room for improvement. I have so much more to learn from the playbook. Tom has been here for 10, 12 years, however long it’s been, and knows so much more of this offense," said Gronkowksi. "Every single day I can learn more about the offense, and I do. Every single week, it’s going out on the practice field, feeling it out and getting better."

Gronkowski also touched on a few...

Mashup: Pujols' wife takes on Cardinals fans

The wife of Albert Pujols went on a St. Louis radio station Monday to defend her husband after the city's fans turned on the slugger for signing a contract with the Angels. Deidre Pujols said the Cardinals offered less money, more deferred money and fewer guarantees.

"When it all came down, I was mad," she told Joy FM, a Christian station that Pujols helped fund. "I was mad at God. … I mean, we had no reason, not one reason, to want to leave. People were deceived by the numbers."

"Albert has never lied," she added. "People are like, 'Oh, we thought we knew who he was.' Well, we thought we knew who they were. … The city of St. Louis has absolutely been deceived and I have never seen hatred spread so fast and I understand why. Let me say that Albert and I never, not one time, ever made plans to leave this city."

She added that Pujols' new destination may have been a sign. "It's just...
