B's comeback bid falls short vs. Caps
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins came just short in their comeback bid Saturday, falling by a 4-3 score to the Capitals at TD Garden. 

With the team trailing by two, Johnny Boychuk buried a rebound with just over three minutes in regulation to make it a one-goal game, but it wasn't enough to bring the B's back. 

The Capitals got two goals within a 25-second span, as Alexander Semin and Matt Hendricks scored at 7:50 and 8:15 of the first period, respectively. Milan Lucic brought the Bruins within one with less than six seconds remaining in the first period, and Brad Marchand tied the game with an unassisted goal 4:58 into the second period. Jay Beagle broke the 2-2 tie 11:22 into the second period, and Brooks Laich provided insurance with a power-play goal just over six minutes later. 

Benoit Pouliot was a last-second scratch for the B's, resulting in the team having to dress 11 forwards and seven defensemen. Lane MacDermid was moved up to the third...

Bowden: 'I'm glad I'm out of options'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Michael Bowden made his major league debut in 2008, but he has yet to secure a foothold in the major leagues since then. Instead, he has been on an almost constant shuttle between Pawtucket and Boston over parts of the last four seasons.

That shuttle will now stop, as Bowden, 25 is out of minor league options. In all likelihood, the Sox will either have to keep him on their major league pitching staff or make him available to other teams either in a trade or via waivers.

“I feel I’ve had major league stuff for a while now. I’m in a good position, and I’m going to take advantage of that position. Unfortunately, it came down to being because I was out of options,” said Bowden. “[But] I’m very happy with where I’m at. I’m glad I’m out of options. Hopefully I get an opportunity at the big league level, a consistent opportunity to show what I can do. I’m very confident...

Making sense of the Red Sox bullpen puzzle

The versatility of Alfredo Aceves represents part of the challenge in the Red Sox' efforts to sort out their bullpen equation. (AP)FORT MYERS, Fla. -- It is, said Bobby Valentine, the most befuddling aspect of the Red Sox roster. There is no part of the team that has many question marks as the bullpen.

"I don’t know the whole grouping out there yet," said Valentine. "I think the most perplexing situation we have right now is that grouping. It’s compounded by the number of starters we have. It’s a very interesting situation, challenging situation, that is about ready to get sorted out in the first stages."

The Sox will, in all likelihood, carry seven relievers to open the season. It is possible that for the first few days of 2012, the team could have eight members of its bullpen given that the team won't...

Rondo: 'Not focused on trade talk'

As the Celtics prepared for an eight-game road trip that coincides with the March 15 trade deadline, Rajon Rondo said they weren't focused on the rumors.

"I don’t think anyone’s really worried about it, honestly. Whatever happens, happens," Rondo said after the Celtics' 104-86 win over Portland. "No one’s really focused on all the trade talk. We’ve done a pretty good job throughout this trade talk of just getting wins. We’re professionals. We’re an older team. Trades happen."

Kevin Garnett echoed the same refrain.

"It’s what it is. This is a business and we all know that," he said. "If you don’t then you better catch up. I haven't thought about [the deadline] until you just brought it up."

Blazers' McMillan: 'Unprofessional approach'

Blazers coach Nate McMillan questioned his players' desire to compete following a 106-84 loss to the Celtics Friday night in a game in which they trailed by 35 points at halftime.

“That's an unprofessional approach,” McMillan said. “There was no basketball being played out there tonight.”

As lopsided as the final score was, the game was actually much worse for the Blazers, who trailed by as many as 43 points. Portland was woeful on both ends of the court. Defensively, the Blazers allowed 65 first-half points while shooting 35 percent and committing 17 turnovers.

“We can try harder than that, we can play better than that,” McMillan said. “We pretty much allowed their team to jump on us and I don't think we responded.”

Forward Nic Batum was also upset after the game.

"Got to stop talking and act like a man and show some pride," Batum said.
