Super Bowl bound: Pats outlast Ravens

FOXBORO -- Billy Cundiff missed a potential game-tying 32-yard field goal wide left with 11 seconds remaining and Vince Wilfork forced a Joe Flacco incompletion on fourth-and-6 at the Patriots' 33 as New England held on for a heart-pounding 23-20 win over the Ravens in the AFC championship at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots will play in Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5 in Indianapolis after claiming their seventh AFC title. 

Tom Brady's head-first dive into the end zone with 11:33 remaining in the fourth quarter was the difference as the Patriots overcame a 20-16 deficit entering the period. Patriots cornerback Sterling Moore turned from goal to hero, stripping the potential game-winning touchdown out of Lee Evans' hands with 27 seconds left in the fourth quarter. 

The game turned out to be a defensive battle early, with the Patriots forcing the Ravens three-and-out on their first three possessions. The Patriots weren't having much better success...

Bruins beat Flyers in shootout
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins got shootout goals from David Krejci and Tyler Seguin as they defeated the Flyers, 6-5, Sunday in Philadelphia. 

Boston survived a blown two-goal lead and a second-period hat trick from Scott Hartnell in the victory. While Hartnell had a natural hat trick in a matter of 16 minutes, Milan Lucic had a Gordie Howe hat trick. The Bruins winger scored his 17th goal of the season in the first period and fought Tom Sestito before assisting a David Krejci goal. 

The Bruins jumped out to a 1-0 lead 50 seconds into the game on Patrice Bergeron's 15th goal of the year, but Dennis Seidenberg accidentally tipped a puck in front into the Bruins' net, resulting in a goal credited to Maxime Talbot. The Bruins regained the lead in the first with goals from Tyler Seguin and Lucic, but Hartnell's three goals in the second period had the Flyers leading, 4-3, entering the third.

The Bruins came back strong in the third, tying it and taking...

Gronk injured by Pollard, returns

FOXBORO -- In a nightmarish scenario, Rob Gronkowski injured his left ankle on a tackle from Bernard Pollard late in the third quarter and had to be helped off the field. 

He was taken to the locker room for further examination. Gronkowski returned on the next series, blocking on the offensive line as Tom Brady dove head first into the end zone for TD on fourth and goal from the 1. 

It was Pollard who ended Brady's season in the 2008 season opener with a hit on the quarterback's left knee.

Pierce leads Celtics past Wizards

The Celtics have been waiting for Paul Pierce to arrive, and the captain delivered on Sunday afternoon in a 100-94 win over the Wizards. Pierce scored 34 points to go with seven rebounds and 10 assists and looked like the Pierce of old, as opposed to an old version of Paul Pierce.

While Pierce helped the C's best offensive performance in weeks, their defense was routinely burned in transition by the younger, faster Wizards and a double-digit third quarter lead quickly evaporated. The Celtics were able to hold on down the stretch thanks to Pierce and solid games from Brandon Bass -- 13 points and eight rebounds -- and Kevin Garnett, who scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half.

The C's were once again without Rajon Rondo, who missed his second straight game with a sprained right wrist. They also lost Ray Allen to a sprained left ankle early in the second quarter. He went back to the locker room and did not return. 

The Celtics had...

Allen leaves game with sprained ankle

Celtics guard Ray Allen jammed his left ankle early in the second quarter when he ran around a screen set by the Wizards' Jan Vesely and did not return to the game. There was no contact on the play, but Allen appeared to roll his ankle.

The veteran guard had double ankle surgery in 2006-07, the season before he joined the Celtics, but has not had any major ankle issues in his four-plus years with the team.
