Recchi on D&H: Savard skated earlier

Bruins forward Mark Recchi, one of the heroes of Monday night's Game 3 victory over the Sabres, joined the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon. Recchi said teammate Marc Savard has been skating longer than the two days that the media found out about this week, and he's hopeful Savard will return to action soon.

 

"He actually texted me last week and told me he was actually sneaking on the ice, so I knew it," Recchi said. "He swore my secrecy, so I wasn't allowed to to say it.

I don't think he likes being out there by himself right now, but hopefully we'll see him in practice here soon and get him back in the lineup."

 

Asked if he thought Savard might return by the end of the Sabres series, Recchi said: "I'm not...

Perkins: 'It is Baby' starting Game 2

Boston Celtics center Kendrick Perkins confirmed that Glen Davis will start in place of suspended Kevin Garnett in Tuesday's Game 2 first-round contest vs. the Heat.

 

"It is Baby," Perkins said following this Tuesday morning's shootaround in Waltham. "He's been there before. We have got trust in Baby so we know he's going to come out and play hard and do what he has to do."

 

Davis played well in the 2009 postseason, averaging 15.8 points and 5.6 rebounds. Garnett missed the entire 2009 playoffs with a knee injury.

Report: Nets interested in C's Thibodeau

A report in the New York Daily News indicated that New Jersey Nets president Rod Thorn might have interest in Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau for his team’s head coaching vacancy. According to the report, Thorn didn’t mention Thibodeau by name, but he did say he was looking for "somebody who has a defensive presence."

 

That description fits Thibodeau, who has been the architect of one of the NBA’s best defenses during his three seasons with the Celtics. Thibodeau has interviewed for several head coaching jobs in the past and many think it’s only a matter of time until he gets one.
