Patriots, Crumpler agree

Reports out of Tennessee indicate that the Patriots are closing in on a deal for free agent tight end Alge Crumpler. (UPDATE, 10:13 p.m.: A league source says that the two sides have reached an agreement on a contract.) Crumpler, who paid a visit to Foxboro earlier this month, is considered one of the best available tight ends remaining on the market, and after Benjamin Watson left via free agency and veteran Chris Baker was released, it's clear New England is in the market for tight end depth. Known primarily a a blocker, the 32-year-old Crumpler had 27 catches for 222 yards and a touchdown last season for Tennessee. For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Bruins recall Whitfield, Penner

The Bruins recalled forward Trent Whitfield and and defenseman Jeff Penner from Providence on an emergency basis for Thursday's game against the Penguins. The move is to create depth in case Blake Wheeler, Dennis Wideman or Johnny Boychuk are unable to play. All three players missed the morning skate with a flu bug that has been going around the team and will be game-time decisions. Each player participated in the pregame warmup skate.

 

Whitfield last played with Boston on Jan. 24 against the Hurricanes and has one assist through 14 games this season with the Bruins. Penner made his NHL debut with the Boston on March 9. He has skated in 59 games for Providence this season with six goals and 24 assists.

Orr on Cooke revenge: 'That's silly'

The Bruins are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the 1970 Stanley Cup champions on Thursday evening at TD Garden with members of the team coming back to Boston to take part in the festivities. Bobby Orr, Johnny Bucyk and Fred Stanfield are scheduled to be in attendance and were made available to the media in an afternoon session. Orr was asked about how the Bruins should go about handling the Penguins' Matt Cooke come game time, and he said that for the Bruins to focus on Cooke instead of the win would be "silly."

 

"The Bruins have to go out tonight and play. It is two points, they are in a fight. And the Penguins are struggling a little bit. First of all, I think that it is going to be a heck of a hockey game. It would be silly for the Bruins that their key thing to be to go after a player," Orr said. "That's silly. It would be a silly thing to do, it would be a silly thing for all of us. I was listening to a talk...
