Julien on fights: Bruins fans 'didn't mind it'

Attempting to put perspective on one of the most physical starts to a hockey game in recent NHL history, Claude Julien said his team responded well to the physical challenge of the Dallas Stars and then went about the business of winning the hockey game. 

 

Thursday's 6-3 Bruins win began with three fights in the opening four seconds, including the opening bout between Gregory Campbell and Stars forward Steve Ott, who leveled Campbell with a head shot two seasons ago when Campbell was with Florida.

 

"Hockey purists know what this is all about," Julien said. "Certainly not a goon show, and I don't think that was purpose of it. It's two teams that are extremely physical and seem to have a dislike for each other whenever they play against each other. In 82 games — and we're in No. 52 — I think this is the first time we've seen this kind of reaction. I'm pretty sure Bruins fans didn't mind it. We...

Bruins call up Hamill from Providence
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Thursday that have called up center Zach Hamill from Providence. The team's first-round draft pick (eighth overall) in the 2007 draft, Hamill is second on the Providence Bruins with 28 points. His 25 assists are a team-high.

 

The promotion does not have anything to do with Daniel Paille, who seems a safe bet to be suspended for a blindside hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada in the second period of Thursday's 6-3 victory over Dallas. Hamill could be seen in the Bruins' dressing room after the game, and coach Claude Julien noted that he was informed of the move earlier in the day.

 

Hamill is likely up to provide an another option for the team with Marc Savard's season in question. Savard suffered the fourth concussion of his career last month against the Avalanche.

Fighting frenzy: B's belt Stars early, hang on

Patrice Bergeron scored twice in a four-goal first period and the Bruins rode the momentum from three fights in the opening four seconds of the game to beat the Stars, 6-3, Thursday night at TD Garden. Bergeron nearly netted a hat trick but missed the empty net and had to settle for an assist on Brad Marchand's goal that finished the scoring late in the third. 

 

The crowd was immediately treated to a fight between Gregory Campbell and Steve Ott off the opening face-off. One second later, it was Shawn Thornton and Krys Barch mixing it up. The fighting frenzy finished when Adam McQuaid and Brian Sutherby brawling. Milan Lucic scored just 35 seconds into the game before Bergeron scored 45 seconds later for a 2-0 lead. 

 

The Bruins lost some momentum when Daniel Paille took a major, five-minute match penalty for a head shot on Raymond Sawada in the second period. Paille was ejected and could be suspended for the...

B's, Stars fight 3 times in opening 4 seconds

The Bruins and Stars put on a fighting display rarely seen in the current-day NHL to open Thursday night's game at TD Garden. 

 

The crowd was treated to a fight between Gregory Campbell and Steve Ott one second into the game. Campbell - leveled by an Ott headshot two seasons ago when Campbell was with Florida - was bloodied and sent to the dressing room before returning later in the period. One second later after the ensuing face-off, it was Shawn Thornton getting the best of Krys Barch. Two seconds later, Adam McQuaid leveled Brian Sutherby. 

 

Adding to the crowd's frenzy and satisfaction was the 21st goal by Milan Lucic just 35 seconds into the game. Just 45 seconds later, Bergeron redirected a shot past Andrew Raycroft and it was 2-0 Bruins. After Raycroft allowed the second goal, he was immediately pulled for Kari Lehtonen. 

 

Four minutes later, Andrew Ference dropped Adam Burish in...

Suns' Gentry on KG: 'Lost respect for him'

Suns coach Alvin Gentry joined KTAR in Phoenix and discussed Celtics forward Kevin Garnett. He discussed the incident in which Garnett hit Suns forward Channing Frye below the belt in the fourth quarter of an 88-71 Phoenix victory over the Celtics last Friday night.

 

"If you're asking me, yeah, I lost a little respect for him," said Gentry. "I mean, I love his competitive nature, but there's no place for what he was doing in our game."

 

"I used to be a big fan of his," Gentry added. "I think some of the antics he's pulled lately, I mean you don't need to do that as a star player. I've never seen Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant or even a Dwyane Wade do that."

 

Garnett was not suspended for the play, Gentry was distressed both by the low blow and his suggestion that the Celtics forward purposely slid his foot underneath Frye as the forward went up for a...
