Late in the second, Daniel Briere came out of the penalty box and beat Tuukka Rask with a wrister with just 24.8 seconds left to tie the game at the second intermission.

Red Sox manager Terry Francona first heard whispers of a diagnosis of cancer for Dave Roberts last week. Though he has not yet been in direct contact with his former outfielder, Francona did sound a note of optimism about the 37-year-old's prospects in his recovery from Hodgkins lymphoma.
"I expect Davey can outrun anything," said Francona. "He’s got a lot of people here pulling for him. I think he probably feels that everywhere. Everywhere he’s been, I would think he’s got people pulling for him."
Prior to Monday's game against the Angels, Red Sox manager Terry Francona discussed his team's struggles and the difficulty of handling his team's 11-14 start out of the gate. The manager suggested that it is natural for players to press, especially given that a slow start tends to magnify attention on a team's poor performance. "I think it magnifies things. You know what though, I don’t know that I’ve ever been here and felt like losing wasn’t the end of the world," said Francona. "That’s difficult when it’s your job, but also, that’s part of what makes this place special. You show up here, and every game means something. And it means something to us too. And I don’t want that to go away. We have a lot of responsibility here. We have great fans. There’s a lot of attention from the media.

Dave Roberts, the owner of the most famous stolen base in Red Sox history, is under treatment for Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Roberts, 37 years old and a special assistant for the San Diego Padres, was diagnosed in March and says that his prognosis is "good." The 10-year MLB veteran has undergone two rounds of chemotherapy.
The outfielder played just 45 regular season games with the Red Sox in his one season with the club (2004), but it was his stolen base and run scored in the ninth inning of Game 4 of the ALCS that many count as the starting point to the now-legendary comeback vs. the Yankees.
Patriots DE Chandler Jones spoke about he doesn't really have a problem "avoiding the noise" about "Deflate-gate" since he doesn't watch ESPN or the news, but prefers cartoons like Family Guy. He also talked about the time he played the Seahawks in his rookie year. Although the teams are different, Jones will likely line up opposite Russell Okung, and try to tackle Marshawn Lynch. Keeping contain on Russell Wilson will be important for Jones and Rob Ninkovich.
Patriots WR Julian Edelman told MFB "It just goes to show how smart our coach is, that he would do a full, high-school science experiment." He also spoke about Super Bowl 49 and what the Patriot wide-outs need to do to beat a talented Seattle secondary.
