Ellsbury day-to-day with left knee contusion

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury left Monday's game for a defensive replacement prior to the top of the eighth inning due to a left knee contusion. Prior to leaving, he'd gone 2-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.

The injury occurred when Ellsbury slid home safely (just in front of Dustin Pedroia) on a bases-clearing double by Adrian Gonzalez in the bottom of the seventh. Ellsbury's leg bumped into the shin guard of Angels catcher Jeff Mathis, resulting in a bruise that has Ellsbury's availability on Tuesday against the Angels in question.

Manager Terry Francona described his center fielder as "a little sore. He banged his knee on that play at the plate. Banged the inside of his knee. He’s real stable and everything. Just has kind of a bruise on the inside of his knee. ... With a bruise like that, we’ll see how he wakes up."

Ellsbury is hitting .383 during his current hitting streak. He has scored 10...

McQuaid will not return to Game 2

PHILADELPHIA -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was hospitalized after taking a header into the corner boards late in the first period of Monday's Game 2 in Philadelphia. 

McQuaid was trying to execute a backcheck on Philadelphia's Mike Richards behind the Bruins net when he missed and tripped over Richards' skate, crashing into the boards. He remained on the ice for several minutes while the Bruins training and medical staff tended to him. He sustained what appeared to be a bloody chin before being helped off the ice by Milan Lucic and Zdeno Chara. 

He was taken from the arena and transported to Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia for further evaluation.

J. O'Neal flagrant fouled downgraded

MIAMI -- The NBA downgraded the flagrant-one foul that was called on Jermaine O'Neal in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals to a personal foul. O'Neal elbowed Miami's James Jones on the play, which came at the 2:30 mark of the third quarter and resulted in a five-point swing after Jones made his free throws and Mike Bibby sank a 3-pointer.

The NBA also rescinded the technical foul on Jones from his altercation with Paul Pierce at the 7:49 mark of the fourth quarter, but upgraded the personal foul called Jones to a flagrant-one. Pierce was later ejected after picking up a second technical foul. An NBA official said on Monday that Pierce wouldn't be suspended for Game 2.

UPDATED: Pronger out for Game 2

PHILADELPHIA -- One hour before Game 2, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren confirmed that top defenseman Chris Pronger will be out with an undisclosed injury.

TSN's Bob McKenzie - on his twitter page - initially reported in the afternoon that Pronger would likely miss the game, with Danny Syvret taking his place. But Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren sent a text out to Philadelphia beat writers that the defenseman was "OK," leading to speculation that he would play in Game 2.

But minutes later, numerous reports confirmed the Pronger scratch for Game 2.

Pronger missed the last five minutes of Saturday's Game 1 and was spotted headed up the runway with about two minutes remaining. The injury is not believed to be related to the broken hand he suffered in the middle of the season, leading to speculation that it is some sort of leg or lower body injury.

Beckett starts Wednesday, Daisuke Friday

The Red Sox announced that Josh Beckett will make his next start Wednesday against the Angels, allowing him six days rest between appearances. Jon Lester will pitch Tuesday, allowing the lefty his usual rest in between starts. Daisuke Matsuzaka, who left his start Friday night with stiffness in his pitching elbow, is slated to go Friday, with John Lackey pitching Thursday.

Monday's bullpen session, which Sox pitching coach Curt Young said Sunday would determine Beckett's availability for his next start, appeared to have gone well, with the starter making it through the 25-pitch exercise in good shape. Red Sox manager Terry Francona noted that with a lack of off days coming up for the Sox, the team wanted to use this opportunity to give Beckett some rest after throwing 125 pitches two starts ago.

"We leaned on Beckett pretty hard there a couple times," Francona said, later noting, "There's a reason why we keep an eye on workload....
