With the Jets in need of help at safety following the season-ending injury to Jim Leonhard, the team called Keith Fitzhugh, a player they cut in camp the past two years. Fitzhugh, however, decided to keep his job as a train conductor. The 24-year-old, who starred at Mississippi State, said he needs to be committed to the Norfolk Southern Railroad to help support his parents. Said Fitzhugh: "I know the Jets have a great opportunity of making the Super Bowl, and that's one dream that every child has is to play sports and make it to the Super Bowl or get to the World Series. But, there's a time when you have to think, 'Hey, you've only got one Mom and Dad.' They won't be here forever, and while they're here, you've got to cherish that time."

Mark Stuart played just four shifts in the first period of Tuesday night's win over the Sabres before suffering an "upper-body injury," according to Bruins coach Claude Julien.
"He'll be evaluated and let you know [Wednesday]," Julien said. "We'll give you more [Wednesday] and he needs to be evaluated. We need to give you the right information."
The Bruins defenseman totaled three minutes, 56 seconds on the ice in the first period before being forced out of the game. The Bruins practice Wednesday in Wilmington before hosting the Islanders on Thursday night at Boston Garden. Julien did not speculate on Stuart's availability on Thursday or Saturday, when the Bruins host the Flyers.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein said that his team has made “a number” of offers to free-agent relievers of both the right- and left-handed variety, and that while he had suggested some discomfort with the price of free agents in years and dollars, “for the right player, I’ve come to grips with it.”
“We’ve had offers out on a few guys for a while now,” said Epstein. “Before we got down here, we had a few instances. Those haven’t gone anywhere. We’ve made a few other offers here as well.”
Epstein said that the team’s only formal offers to free agents have been relievers, meaning that the team has yet to make an official bid on any of the right-handed hitters and/or outfielders on the market. He also suggested that, while he stated a preference for a right-handed hitter, the team would prefer “a good player,” and that...
Nathan Horton scored the tying goal with 6:21 left in the third period and Mark Recchi deflected Dennis Seidenberg's shot in for the game-winning power-play goal in overtime as the Bruins beat the Sabres, 3-2, Tuesday night at Boston Garden.

Thomas turned away Derek Roy on the doorstep 40 seconds into overtime to keep the game tied.
Luke Adam took a four-minute high-sticking penalty to the face of Marc Savard with 3:14 left in overtime to set-up the game-winning chance. Seidenberg took a slap shot from the high slot that beat Miller up top. But Recchi's goal wasn't confirmed until a stoppage and review a minute later.
The Bruins jumped out on top when Milan Lucic fired a shot shot that rang off the near post and past Miller at 13:21 of the first period. It was Lucic's team-leading...
