Though they were outshot 32-19, the Bruins made the most of their opportunities against St. Louis, with Brad Marchand scoring twice to lead the Bruins past the Blues, 4-2.
With his two goals, Marchand matched his season total of 21 from a year ago and the 23-year-old set a new career high in points with 42, one more than he scored as a rookie last year. His gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead just 2:29 into the first period, then finished the scoring with another goal at 9:14 of the third period. In between his two goals, Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly also put the puck past Blues netminder Brian Elliott, who stopped just 15 of the 19 shots he faced.
Tim Thomas, meanwhile, turned aside 30 of 32 shots he faced. In the process, he helped the Bruins improve to 4-6-0 this month. The B's have scored exactly four goals in each of their wins this month.

The Celtics nearly came all the way back from a 23-point halftime deficit, but fell just short Wednesday night against the Thunder in Oklahoma City, dropping a 119-104 decision. It was the seventh loss in the last eight games for Boston, which got 23 points and 13 rebounds from Kevin Garnett in the defeat.
The Celtics, playing without point guard Rajon Rondo (serving the second game of a two-game suspension for throwing a ball at a referee) bolted to a quick 10-point lead, but an astonishing 30-2 run by the Thunder allowed them to seize a 42-25 second-quarter lead and a 72-49 advantage into the half. Boston cut into the lead throughout the third and into the fourth quarter, getting the deficit down to as much as six when Paul Pierce hit a free throw with 3:31 left to make it 108-102.
But that would be as close the the Celtics would get, as the Thunder pulled away down the stretch to secure their sixth win in the last seven games....

Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona, now an analyst for ESPN, joined The Big Show Wednesday to discuss the upcoming baseball season and his days as the team's skipper. Francona discussed Manny Ramirez, Carl Crawford and the Sox' rotation, among other things.
A column written in November by Peter Gammons quoted Francona as saying "Manny Ramirez is the worst human being I've ever met" in the 2008 season. Francona wasn't sure he said those exact words, but did say he was angry with Ramirez after he had pushed traveling secretary Jack McCormick.
"I actually talked to Peter this morning," Francona said. "I don't remember ever saying that about somebody. I think what probably happened is -- I know it was the Jack McCormick incident -- I was probably blowing off some steam, and I was having a conversation with Peter, not an interview. I don't want to sit here and say I was misquoted, because it wasn't an interview. I...
