Next stop Europe: Bruins fall to Caps

In their final North American preseason tuneup before getting on a plane for Belfast, Ireland and their season opener on Oct. 9 in Prague, the Bruins dropped a 4-1 decision to the Washington Capitals Wednesday night at TD Garden. 

 

Tim Thomas saw his first action of the preseason and played all 60 minutes, allowing four goals on 24 shots. Niklas Backstrom scored the first two goals before the Capitals built their lead to 4-0 early in the third period. 

 

Mark Recchi scored his first of the preseason midway through the third on a power play, with assists from Patrice Bergeron and Michael Ryder. The Bruins left immediately after the game for Logan Airport, where they caught a charter flight to Belfast. They will play an elite area team in Ireland on Oct. 3 before opening with the Phoenix Coyotes in a pair of games Oct. 9 and 10.

 

The Bruins finished their NHL portion of preseason with a 1-3-1...

Tampa native Cash: Trop attendance 'a joke'

CHICAGO — Kevin Cash – a native of North Tampa — not only agreed with the frustrations recently relayed by Rays’ players Evan Longoria and David Price over the lack of fans in the stands at Tropicana Field, but took his criticism to another level.

 

“I agree with them 100 percent,” said Cash, referring to comments made by Longoria and Price in regard to the attendance (or lack thereof) at the Rays’ home ballpark despite the team making the postseason for the second time in three years. “It’s a joke. I’m not going to sit here and call out fans. I respect everything about the economy and everything. But at the same time, the Yankees and Red Sox, they’re not complaining.

 

When asked if the trend in attendance at The Trop could ever be...

Sox lineup: Last start of season for Beckett

With any hope of a miracle run to the postseason dashed on Tuesday, the Red Sox return to U.S. Cellular Field to play the third game of a four-game set with the White Sox.

 

The Red Sox (87-70) were officially eliminated from the playoffs Tuesday with wins by the Yankees and Rays. This marks the first time since 2006 that the Sox will not be a participant in the postseason.

 

Josh Beckett (6-5, 5.77 ERA) takes the mound for the Red Sox Wednesday, looking to end what has been a disappointing season on a high note. He will be opposed by Freddy Garcia (11-6, 4.74).

 

Sox lineup:

 

Scutaro, 4

Drew, 9

Martinez, 2

Ortiz, DH

Beltre, 5

Lowell, 3

Lowrie, 6

West: 'I'll go to war and die for this team'

NEWPORT, R.I. -- It was an hour and a half after practice when Delonte West finally concluded his individual workout. West knows that he is under scrutiny this season and he's not taking any chances. "I’m just happy to be given this opportunity to do what I love," he said. "I’m lucky to be here. I’m happy to be here. I’m a soldier in Doc’s army. Whatever he needs me to do. I’ll go to war and die for this team. Playing every game, every minute this year like my life depended on it, cause it [does.] Nothing’s promised." 

 

The Celtics offer a familiar environment for West, who is facing a 10-game suspension to start the season from the NBA following his arrest on weapons charges and he is grateful for the chance. "I’ve been given this opportunity to prove to the NBA and the world that I’m a good person," West said. "I have a lot to prove and I don...
