B's suffer more injuries in latest loss
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins suffered a 5-2 loss that saw Tim Thomas get yanked after a period, but it was the other players who left the game that should have the already injury-riddled B's concerned. 

Adam McQuaid left the game in the first period after hurting himself trying to hit Penguins forward James Neil, but he wasn't the only Bruin to suffer an injury. Patrice Bergeron was hurt blocking a shot in the second period. After leaving the bench and going to the room, he came back for a shift but left the game again. Bergeron took one more shift in the third period, but ended up leaving the game for the third time and did not return. Max Sauve, making his NHL debut in place of the injured Benoit Pouliot, was also injured in the second period, meaning the B's played with only 10 healthy forwards. 

To make matters even worse, defenseman Johnny Boychuk was the victim of a hit from Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin that could be looked at by the league....

Iglesias sidelined by groin injury

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias was supposed to make the trip to Sarasota on Sunday morning to play a "B" game against the Orioles, but instead he was scratched and skipped the trip while dealing with what manager Bobby Valentine described as "a little stiff groin."

"I believe it’s his left, and if it’s not, it’s his right," said Valentine. "Call it a hunch."

Valentine said that Iglesias incurred the injury last Monday, but only mentioned it to team trainers on Saturday. In all likelihood, the shortstop will sit out of games through the Sox' first off-day of the Grapefruit League schedule on Wednesday.

"I’m going to see how it is when he comes tomorrow. I have the inclination to not play him through the off day, unless he’s perfect," said Valentine. "He’s a kid who has great desire, and right now I’m not going to let...

Wilcox not with C's, undergoing heart tests

Celtics forward Chris Wilcox did not make the trip to Los Angeles after what the team called "routine cardiac testing," that will require follow-up tests. Wilcox missed Friday's game with Portland with the team citing a personal matter.

There is no timeframe for the tests although Wilcox will miss the team's next two games against the Lakers and Clippers at the least. A free agent forward, Wilcox is averaging 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in his first season with the team.

In an unrelated matter, the Celtics had to void the contract of Jeff Green after tests revealed a heart aneurysm. Green had heart surgery and is sitting out the season.

Aceves, Bard shine against Rays

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After Daniel Bard turned in three shutout innings, Alfredo Aceves followed suit with three scoreless innings of his own, allowing just two hits while striking out two, as the Red Sox shut out the Rays, 5-0. In his last two outings, Aceves has retired 15 of the 17 men he's faced.

While Bard is a presumed frontrunner for the rotation, Aceves has pitched as well as any candidate for the last two spots in the rotation. On Saturday, he mixed fastball, curves, cutters and his changeup while throwing an efficient 40 pitches, 29 for strikes.

While Aceves carried enormous value last year in the bullpen last year, pitching coach Bob McClure offered an interesting perspective on the role in which a pitcher's value can be greatest.

"He’s someone we have to  eally seriously look at as a possible guy in that starting rotation," said McClure. "To me, you win with starting pitching. Is it nice to have a...

Bard has longest outing in five years

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- In his longest outing since 2007, Daniel Bard tossed three shutout innings against the Rays on Saturday night. He allowed two hits and walked two while striking out one.

Of his nine outs, five came via groundballs as he worked his fastball away to right-handers. He also got swings and misses on his fastball, slider and changeup, with the change (which Bard estimated he threw approximately a dozen times) representing a particular point of emphasis.

"I got a lot of strikes with it. Got that first swing [and miss] to [B.J. Upton] right-on-right. Can’t ask for anything better than that," said Bard. "I threw some other good ones as well. Foul balls, called strike on one, and most of my misses on it were down, which is where you want to be with it. Even a miss down with a changeup, in my opinion, it sets up the next fastball you throw. It makes it look that much harder. As long as I’m down in the zone with...
