Thomas comes up big again in B's win
By: DJ Bean

Zdeno Chara logged a game-high 29:05 of ice time and Tim Thomas continued his impressive stretch as the Bruins picked up their third straight win on Tuesday night, defeating the Capitals, 3-1, in Washington, D.C.

 

David Krejci, Milan Lucic, and Matt Hunwick contributed the goals for the Bruins, the first two of which came in the first period, with Hunwick’s coming at 2:08 of the third. Both Krecji and Hunwick’s tallies were their first of the season, and Lucic picked up his third goal in the last three games.

 

Thomas was stellar once again, stopping 35 of 36 shots he faced and picking up his third straight win. He has now allowed just two goals in his three games. Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin was a minus-two on the night, while goaltender Michal Neuvirth left the game after the Bruins' first two goals due to the flu.

Ray Allen: Fans more 'excited' to see Heat

The Celtics and Miami Heat are getting ready to open the season next Tuesday night at TD Garden in one of the most anticipated regular season games in NBA history. And Ray Allen, for one, believes the general public is much more excited to see the new-look Miami team with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh than the defending Eastern Conference champion Celtics.  

 

"I believe so," Allen said following the Celtics' Green-White scrimmage at TD Garden on Tuesday night. "I believe so because there's never been an opening game that has been more heavily anticipated. I do believe that people are definitely excited to see them more than they're excited about about seeing us. Truly they know, as a team, what we represented. The two teams are Eastern Conference powerhouses. It's going to be a game."

 

Allen played Tuesday for the Green squad, which captured a 38-31 victory in an enhanced practice before...

Rivers gets good news after biopsy

Celtics coach Doc Rivers underwent a biopsy Sunday morning after his doctor found a spot on his throat three weeks ago. The good news for the coach is that the results came back clean. "They found cancerous lesions," Rivers said after the team conducted an open practice for season ticket holders at TD Garden. "They had to make sure there was nothing there, and there was nothing, so I’m good. I’m going to be around for a while it looks like." 

 

Rivers said that he has his throat checked every year after prompting from former Celtics coach Jim O'Brien. "I think most coaches should because we yell, use our throat a lot," Rivers said. "That makes you more susceptible to it. I’m glad I did it now."

Cain brilliant as Giants take NLCS lead

Matt Cain allowed just two hits and no runs over seven innings as the Giants picked up a 3-0 win over the Phillies in Game 3 of the NLCS to take a 2-1 series edge.

 

Cody Ross -- now hitting .444 for the series -- and Aubrey Huff collected back-to-back RBI singles in the fourth inning off of Phillies starter Cole Hamels, who took the loss. Freddy Sanchez would single in another run in the fifth, giving Cain all the support he needed. The right-hander struck out five and walked three batters in his 119-pitch start. Javier Lopez pitched the eighth inning and Brian Wilson earned his fourth playoff save with a scoreless ninth.

 

Joe Blanton is scheduled to start Game 4 on Wednesday for the Phillies, though manager Charlie Manuel has not ruled out going with Roy Halladay on short rest. Madison Bumgarner is the scheduled starter for the Giants.

Report: Savard skates, still has 'down days'
By: DJ Bean

While the rest of his teammates were in the nation's capital getting ready for Tuesday's tilt with the Capitals, Bruins center Marc Savard took the ice at Ristuccia Area as he continued his rehab from post-concussion syndrome related symptoms and depression.

 

Savard, who suffered a Grade 2 concussion from a Matt Cooke hit last March 7, spoke with ESPN's Joe McDonald following the 25-minute skate, saying that he has gone from 15 minute sessions to 20 minute sessions on the ice, to Tuesday's 25.

 

"I'm obviously feeling better because I'm out skating," Savard told McDonald. "That's good news, but I'm still definitely not 100 percent. I still have some issues, but a lot of them aren't from the injury. My head isn't screwed up after I work out right now. Obviously, there are other ongoing issues."

 

The other ongoing issues to which Savard refers presumably includes depression, which is...
