Wideman optimistic about playing

WILMINGTON -- Dennis Wideman missed last weekend's two-game road trip through Dallas and Phoenix with an injured left shoulder, but skated with his teammates Monday morning at practice. The 26-year-old defenseman injured the shoulder after taking an awkward tumble into the boards during the second period of Boston's shootout loss to the New York Islanders more than a week ago. He was optimistic that his shoulder would be healed up enough to suit up against the Nashville Predators Wednesday night at TD Garden, but wasn't ready to pronounce himself a definite go.
"It feels good, but we'll see. I'll take another step and we'll see how the next couple of days go," said Wideman. "It felt pretty good today. It was a little different. That was probably the first time I missed a road trip with an injury and couldn't go. So it's a different thing. For as long as you play something like that is going to happen eventually....

Second UConn stabbing victim identified

 A source close to the situation has informed Joe Zarbano of WEEI.com that the second person who was stabbed early on Sunday morning — along with junior cornerback Jasper Howard — was UConn wide receiver Brian Parker. Parker has been released from the hospital and is in good condition.
 
The wide receiver was with Howard and a few other teammates as they left the dance. According to the source, an argument started at the dance and escalated outside. The men who stabbed Jasper and Parker did not attend UConn, and were not known by the players.
 
The Stamford Advocate also is reporting Parker was the second victim in the stabbing incident. For more see the It Is What It Is Blog...

Report: Galloway trade looming?

According to Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network, the Patriots and Ravens may be discussing a deal that would send wide receiver Joey Galloway to Baltimore before this week’s trade deadline. The veteran, in his first season with New England, has struggled to get on the same page as quarterback Tom Brady, and has been a healthy scratch the last three weeks. On the season, he has just seven catches for 67 yards. For more Pats news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Chiarelli: 'I don't see passion I saw before'

While explaining the Chuck Kobasew trade at the Bruins practice facility Monday morning, B's GM Peter Chiarelli admitted that the deal sending away the third-line grinding forward was based "primarily" on the B's lackluster play during October. There were salary cap savings and a chance to bring up some fresh bodies from Providence in Brad Marchand and Vladimir Sobotka, but Chiarelli grew tired of watching a largely bloodless, passionless exercise through Boston's 3-4 star to the season.
"It’s a combination of a number of factors. Certainly our play has been on and off and that was part of it,” said Chiarelli, who had been in discussions with several clubs for a period two weeks. “The two guys we brought up have been playing pretty well in Providence. It also gives us a little of salary cap flexibility for this year and for next year, so it was a good time for all those things. But it was primarily based...

Deion on Thomas: 'He's upset'

Deion Sanders, the NFL Network's outspoken analyst, said on the "GameDay Final" show that he spoke with Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas on Sunday, the day Thomas was a healthy scratch for the first time since his rookie year in 2000 with the Baltimore Ravens. "I talked to [Thomas]," Sanders said. "He's upset. He's going to work it out with his coach but he'll be back." Sanders, the former Pro Bowl corner back, played with Thomas on the Ravens in 2004-05. Bill Belichick addressed the Thomas issue in his Monday conference call. For details, visit the football blog It Is What It Is.
