Papelbon 'very excited' about free agency

Jonathan Papelbon -- on the cusp of free agency for the first time in his career -- spoke to WEEI.com Tuesday. Papelbon is eligible for free agency five days after the end of the World Series.

"It really truly isn't all about the money. It's just not," Papelbon said. "I'm going to a place where I know I'm going to succeed. I'm going to a place where I know I have a chance to win a championship. I'm going to a place where I know that my family is going to be safe, my family is going to like the environment, and everything else that goes along with off-field stuff. That's what I'm looking at."

Papelbon -- who told WEEI.com he hasn't talked contract with the Red Sox recently -- would enter free agency off of a 2011 season that saw the closer return to elite status at his position.

"Yeah, I'm very excited," Papelbon said when asked about being a free agent. "But I don't think it's all about getting to this...

Krejci injured, leaves Tuesday's practice
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins first-line center David Krejci left Tuesday's practice at Ristuccia Arena with an undisclosed injury. 

Members of the media did not see the injury, as it came during Peter Chiarelli's press conference following the signing of forward Rich Peverley. The Bruins did not offer much on the status of Krejci. 

"I don't know," coach Claude Julien said of the injury. "I can't really tell you the severity of it right now. He's being looked at. I can probably give you more this afternoon when we find out more." 

Asked whether it was an upper-body or lower-body or injury, Julien said it was a "body" injury. He did not know whether Krejci would travel with the team to Carolina on Tuesday.

"I don't know yet. I haven't really had a chat yet," he said. "If he doesn't he'll be behind and get checked out. I don't know how severe it is right now."

Chiarelli: Peverley strengthens B's top 6
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Tuesday that the Bruins had been in negotiating with forward Rich Peverley since prior to the start of the season before eventually signing him to a three-year extension (TSN is reporting the deal carries an annual cap hit of $3.25 million). 

Peverley, 29, leads the Bruins with two goals through three games. Both of his goals were scored Saturday in the Bruins' lone victory of the season. 

"He's got speed, a good shot and is still relatively young in the grander schemes," Chiarelli said. "He's just a guy that we wanted to have in our mix for really the next four years." 

The Bruins acquired Peverley last February in a deal with Atlanta, and after he began his Bruins tenure on the third line, the speedy winger took shifts on the second line in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals and became a first-liner when Nathan Horton was lost for the...

Peverley inks three-year extension
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Tuesday morning that they have signed forward Rich Peverley to a three-year contract extension. Peverley was among the Bruins set to become free agents following the season. 

Peverley was acquired on Feb. 18 last season when the Bruins sent Mark Stuart and Blake Wheeler to Atlanta for the speedy forward and defenseman Boris Valabik.

Playing on the team's second line, Peverley leads the Bruins with two goals this season, both of which were scored in Saturday's win over the Lightning.

Jets explain sideline camera at Pats game

Following distribution of a CBS screen grab from Sunday's Patriots-Jets game that shows a credentialed Jets employee with a camera on the sideline, the team explained that the employee works for Jets TV filming for team programming. The Patriots also use video on the sideline for shows such as "Patriots All Access."

The NFL tightened up its rule against teams videotaping from the sideline following the Patriots "Spygate" controversy in 2007.
