Bergeron skating already

 WILMINGTON – The Bruins could put together a pretty good lineup with the five players who hit the ice for practice Wednesday. While most of the team was given the day off, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, Mark Stuart, Adam McQuaid and Tuukka Rask went through varying bits of work on the practice rink. Bergeron was skating less than 24 hours after being told he had a broken right thumb.“It’s fine to skate and workout, I just can’t move my thumb for ten days,” said Bergeron, who had a molded splint around the thumb. “I’m going to keep in game shape, keep working out, keep staying strong. The only thing is I’m not going to be able to pass and shoot, that’s about it." For more, visit BigBadBlog.weei.com

Bergeron to skate

Bruins center Patrice Bergeron is not wasting any time with his recovery work. Bergeron will be one of five Bruins that skates this afternoon, just two days after suffering a broken thumb in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers in New York. After seeing doctors yesterday it was determined that Bergeron would be out for about two weeks, but that he can practice to the extent that he can withstand pain.

Lewis: Can't worry about Brady Rule

 

FOXBORO  --  During a conference call with New England reporters on Wednesday, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said he can't worry about how referees are going to protect Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and enforce the so-called 'Brady Rule' during Sunday's playoff game at Gillette Stadium. "I'm so focused on trying to keep my team focused and try to get the Patriots and trying to deal with the Patriots," said Lewis, who was upset at roughing the passer calls during his team's 27-21 loss to New England on Oct. 4. "I can't even dwell back into that. Whatever's going to happen is going to happen. If they're going to throw a flag, they'll throw a flag. Yeah, you're [ticked] off at the moment because the way I approach the game and the way I play the game and that's one thing. But when you talk about bringing it back up, that's too much for me right now." To hear Lewis' comments, visit the football blog...

Harrison on D&H: Pats need Watson

NBC Sports NFL analyst Rodney Harrison made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday morning to talk about the Wes Welker injury and Sunday's playoff game against the Ravens. "I'm definitely taking the Patriots," Harrison said of Sunday's matchup. "I just feel like Baltimore time and time again in big games has shot themselves in the foot, has self-destructed. They have a decent defense, but it's not the defense we're used to seeing. And the Patriots don't lose at home."

 

Harrison had a similar injury to Welker's when he played for the Patriots, and he knows what's ahead for Welker. "It's more of a mental hurdle, especially a guy like him who is used to moving around," Harrison said, adding that watching teammates in the playoffs can be mentally draining: "It's absolutely devastating, because you want to go out there."

 

Harrison said the Patriots will miss Welker "...

Olney on D&H: Right move by Sox

ESPN baseball writer Buster Olney spoke with the Dale & Holley Show Wednesday morning. Olney said the Red Sox did well with their signing of Adrian Beltre. "He is without a doubt regarded as the best defensive third baseman in baseball right now," Olney said. "Given the alternative, that was a great call for the Red Sox [to focus on defense]."

 

Regarding the Red Sox vs. the Yankees, "I think it's a flip of the coin between the two teams right now," Olney said. "I think the Yankees are going to be at greater risk of injuries and age issues, because it's such an old team."

 

Discussing the Matt Holliday signing, Olney said the Cardinals overpaid and it will hurt them when Albert Pujols comes due for a new contract. Said Olney: "It surprised me that they ended up giving in in a way that even the New York Mets didn't [with Jason Bay]."
