Bobby V: Beckett 'mentally bruised' after loss

Bobby Valentine spoke to a group of reporters on Sunday morning in Detroit and was asked to update the status of Josh Beckett, who allowed seven runs in 4.2 innings pitched (including five home runs) in Saturday's 10-0 loss to the Tigers.

“Just got through talking to him,’’ Valentine told reporters Sunday. “Mentally bruised, but physically fine.’’ 

Beckett said on Saturday that his right thumb was not an issue in the start. The right-hander has seen two specialists over the last week to look at the thumb and told the media that surgery could eventually be a possibility.

Bruins will host Capitals in first round
By: DJ Bean

In a development that took three different games to determine, the Bruins will play the Capitals in the first round of the Stanley Cup finals. 

The Capitals entered the game with 90 points, good for in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Seventh-place Ottawa, with 92 points, lost to the Devils Saturday, allowing the Capitals to match them in points and surpass them due to a tie-breaker by beating the Rangers.

When all was said and done, Florida was third (behind fellow division winners New York and Boston), Washington was seventh and Ottawa was eighth.

BC hockey captures national championship

Steven Whitney scored two goals Saturday night at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and Boston College defeated Ferris State, 4-1, to win its third national championship in five years.

It's the fifth title overall for BC, which won its last 19 games this season to finish at 33-10-1.

"I thought our club played extremely well against a very good team," coach Jerry York said during the postgame trophy presentation. "Parker Milner once again was superb."

Milner, the Eagles' junior goalie, turned away 27 shots. He allowed just two goals in four NCAA tournament games.

"It's incredible. It's everything you dream about," Milner said in an on-ice interview moments after the game went final.

Milner's biggest save came with 7:07 left and BC protecting a 2-1 lead, as he slid over to his right to stop a one-timer by Travis Ouelette near the side of the goal.

Just over four minutes later, freshman Johnny...

C's D slows Pacers in road victory

The Celtics continued their recent smothering defensive play, holding the Pacers to just 35.1 percent shooting, as Boston won, 86-72, in Indiana. The Atlantic Division-leading Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak with one of thier most impressive road victories of the season.

Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points, while Ray Allen had 19 (albeit on a 7-for-19 shooting night from the floor) and Kevin Garnett had 15 points and seven rebounds. On a night when the Celtics had 27 assists on their 32 baskets, Rajon Rondo led the way with 12 assists.

But it was the Celtics' defense that did the most significant work in the road win. The Pacers converted just 26 of 74 shots, and Greg Stiemsma blocked five shots while Boston also accumulated a dozen steals, led by Ray Allen's four. The Celtics took a 24-19 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. The Celtics return home on Sunday to host the 76ers, the second place team in the division....
