Melrose on D&C: B's playing best in NHL

ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose joined Dennis & Callahan Friday morning to talk about the Bruins-Flyers series. "I think Boston, of the eight teams left, are playing the best playoff hockey," Melrose said. "They're giving up nothing. They're playing a great brand of hockey right now."

 

Melrose said the Bruins' discipline in coach Claude Julien's system has been great to watch. "I love the way Boston's playing," he said. "When they give up a shot, it's from the side. Tuukka Rask is playing great. No outnumbered chances -- no 3-on-2s, 2-on-1s. Boston's playing the system to a 'T.' But again, are they going to be able to score? [David] Krejci's out, [Marco] Sturm's out, [Marc] Savard's probably about 75-80 percent. It's been amazing how they've been able to score with all these guys out of the lineup."

 

Melrose said that if the Bruins take command in this game the Flyers will...

Just heavenly: Sox complete 4-game sweep

Victor Martinez smacked a two-run homer and tied the game with a two-run double in the fifth as the Red Sox erased an early four-run deficit in an 11-6 romp over the Los Angeles Angels, completing a four-game series sweep of the Halos at Fenway Park for the first time since 1967. The Red Sox improved to 15-14, the first time they've been above .500 since their win over the Yankees on opening night. 

 

Dustin Pedroia also went 2-for-4 and scored three times as the Red Sox dug Daisuke Matsuzaka out of an early hole. Matsuzaka allowed four runs in the first inning and needed 39 pitches to get through the first. But he allowed just one run after that and earned his first victory of the season by scattering nine hits over 5 1/3 innings. 

 

Jeremy Hermida contributed with a two-run pinch double in a five-run fifth that put the Red Sox ahead to stay. The Red Sox welcome the New York Yankees to town for a three-game...

Theo: 'I didn't call anyone out'

Talking to the media prior to the Red Sox' Thursday night game with the Angels, Sox general manager Theo Epstein talked about a variety of topics, including his assertion in the Boston Herald after Sunday's loss that change might be on the way if the team didn't start playing better.

 

"One reporter came up and asked me a question, what kind of baseball are you guys playing. And I don’t think there’s a single player in that clubhouse that would disagree with me. I didn’t call anyone out," Epstein said. "I didn’t call our players out. We’re all in this together. But the fact of the matter is we were not playing good baseball. We all know that. We weren’t playing the kind of baseball we were capable of. Tito had a meeting, a couple other things – there’s a reason you do those things, not that they ultimately matter. Ultimately it’s how our players play, and they’ve done a...
