Overkill: B's win Game 1 in OT

Chris Kelly unloaded a slap shot from the left circle that beat Braden Holtby just 1:18 into the first overtime to give the Bruins a 1-0 win over the Capitals Thursday night in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at TD Garden. Tim Thomas stopped all 17 shots for the shutout. Game 2 will be Saturday afternoon, again in Boston.

With Washington's top two goalies not even dressing due to injury, Holtby stole the show. He stepped in for Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth and stopped the first 29 shots he faced. He was pressured heavily in the second period as the Bruins outshot the Capitals 17-2, making the shot differential 26-7 through two periods. 

The Bruins had plenty of chances to take the lead on the power play. But as has been the case in the last two weeks, the man advantage was not much help to Boston. The B's had a golden opportunity late in the first period when Jay Beagle was called for a double-minor high-sticking...

Ainge: Would have made deals even with run

Appearing as a guest on The Big Show on Thursday, Celtics president Danny Ainge said that he still would have made a deal at the trade deadline knowing what he knows how about how his team has played recently.

"The deals I wanted to make I probably would have still wanted them," Ainge said. "I thought that I had a couple of deals that we could have been just as good as we are now and protected us in the future. I wouldn't say that, no."

Asked specifically about a rumored deal involving O.J. Mayo and Ray Allen, Ainge wouldn't bite.

"It doesn't even do any good to talk about those made-up rumors," he said. "There's going to be a lot of stuff out there but I can't confirm or deny any of them. It's not fair for me to talk about players on other teams or players from my own team that may or may not have been traded."

Ainge said he never could have predicted how the Celtics have played recently,...

Faulk: I'm training to come back in 2012

Speaking while visiting Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence on Thursday, Patriots running back Kevin Faulk said he’s training to come back for another season with the team.

“I am training to come back and play. But it’s not up to me. It’s up to the team and everything. But I am planning on coming back, so we’ll see what happens,” Faulk said.

If Faulk does return in 2012, it would mark his 14th season with the Patriots. The 35-year-old running back has been limited the last couple of seasons because of a knee injury he suffered in a loss to the Jets early in the 2010 season.

“Everyone says, ‘You don’t have anything to prove.’ Which, I don’t. I don’t play the game of football to prove anything to anyone,” he said. “I play the game of football because I love it, I’m passionate about the game of football. It’s what I...

Sore ankle keeps Allen from Toronto trip

When the Celtics left for Toronto on Thursday to begin a stretch of three games in three cities in three nights, guard Ray Allen was not with them. Allen was held back in Boston with a sore right ankle and the team said on its Twitter feed that he is day-to-day.

Allen missed six games with the ankle injury before returning on April 4 for a game against the Spurs. Allen moved to the bench for their next game against the Bulls and aw action in five games before missing Wednesday's contest with the Hawks.

After playing the Raptors on Friday, the Celtics will play New Jersey on Saturday and Charlotte on Sunday with another road game in New York on Tuesday.

Julien hopeful Boychuk will play in Game 1
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien would only say he "hopes" defenseman Johnny Boychuk will be in the lineup Thursday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals against the Capitals.

Based on this week, it would appear that Boychuk should be ready to return after missing the last two games of the regular season with a sprained knee. He participated in Thursday's morning skate, marking the fourth straight day he's been on the ice with the team. In practices and line drills, Boychuk has played on the second pairing with Andrew Ference.

Julien would not reveal the healthy scratch among forwards, but it should be either Jordan Caron or Daniel Paille, as the two have shared the left wing on the fourth line this week in practice. 

Adam McQuaid (upper-body) and Tuukka Rask (abdomen/groin) will not dress. Anton Khudobin will serve as the team's backup to Tim Thomas.
