ESPN NFL analyst and former coach Herm Edwards made an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk about the NFL draft, which starts Thursday night.

The Red Sox claimed their second straight walk-off win as Kevin Youkilis' double off the center field wall with two outs in the 12th inning handed the Sox an 8-7 win over the Rangers Wednesday night at Fenway Park. The blast scored Marco Scutaro, who was set in motion from second with the count full. The last time the Red Sox had back-to-back walk-off wins were April 28-29, 2008, against Toronto.

The Red Sox extended their lead in the fourth inning when Darnell McDonald became the first Sox player to hit home runs in his first two games with the team since Sam Horn managed the feat in on July 26-27, 1987. Lowell increased the hosts' lead to three runs in the sixth with an RBI single,...

The Bruins now lead the series three games to one heading into Game 5 in Buffalo on Friday.
Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci scored the third-period goals for the Bruins. Tim Kennedy scored the Sabres' first goal, coming in the opening period, and former Bruin Steve Montador struck in the second.
