IU's Mayberry to work out for Pats

According to a league source, the Patriots are scheduled to hold a private workout on Friday in Bloomington, Ind., with Indiana linebacker Matt Mayberry.

Milbury on D&H: 'Neanderthal B.S.'

NESN hockey analyst Mike Milbury checked in with Dale & Holley show to talk about Thursday night's Bruins-Penguins game and the potential for nastiness involving Penguins villain Matt Cooke. Milbury said he's heard that NHL vice president Colin Campbell will address the teams prior to the game. Said Milbury: "That's what I'm hearing. I don't know what he's going to say, but I'm sure there will be references to past incidents, [Todd] Bertuzzi-[Steve] Moore, for example, and he doesn't what any nonsense and what-not, which is good. We had such a great buzz after the Winter Classic. We had such an incredible buzz after the Olympics, and now we get stuck and mired in this Neanderthal B.S., which is really unfortunate for the sport."

 

Milbury said he expects the Bruins will seek retribution early. "I hope it isn't silly. I hope it's mano-a-mano and confrontational and sends a message to Matt Cooke that this isn't going to happen...

B's Julien: This is not the 1970s

Bruins coach Claude Julien addressed the media after Thursday's morning skate about how Boston will respond on the ice against the Penguins and Matt Cooke. Julien said that there is a fine line between fighting for the two points as the Bruins vie for a playoff spot and wanting to send a message to Cooke and the Penguins after Cooke's hit on Marc Savard put the center out for the rest of the season.

 

"That’s just it. That’s the bottom line. We need the two points. There’s a fine line that, like you said, you have to be careful of. Things need to be done within the rules," Julien said. "Unfortunately, the rules aren’t the same as in 1970, and in those days it was a lot different. There were bench-clearing brawls, which you don’t see anymore. There was a lot of other things going on and that’s what everybody has to understand. There’s a lawsuit going on right now with that Vancouver...

Malkin out against Bruins

Penguins star center Evgeni Malkin will miss his second game in a row on Thursday night against the Bruins at the TD Garden with an injury. Malkin was hit by a shot on Sunday against the Lightning and was scratched for Wednesday night's game, a 5-2 loss in New Jersey. Malkin said he knows the situation that the Bruins have with Matt Cooke and the Penguins after Cooke's on Marc Savard on March 7 that sidelined the center for the rest of the season with a Grade 2 concussion but expects the Bruins to not play a dirty game.

 

"I can't play tonight, I am still sore. I hope it is day by day and I hope I can play the game [on Saturday] but I am still sore," Malkin said after the Penguins morning skate. "I know the situation. A tough game, a physical game but I think that Boston needs points towards the playoffs and [will] not play dirty tonight ... I think it will be a tough game but not dirty."
