Not everyone is excited about former Patriots receiver Randy Moss returning to the NFL. While Moss' agent claimed Tuesday night that three teams have shown an interest in the 35-year-old, former Vikings teammate Cris Carter said Moss first will need to prove that his attitude has improved.
"The one thing you have to address with Randy Moss is not a conditioning thing. It's not an age thing," Carter said during a Tuesday appearance on ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike in the Morning." "It needs to be addressed. I believe it's the elephant in the room. It's that thing called quit.
"And Randy, not like any other superstar I've met, he has more quit in him than any of those other players. So I need to address that. That's what [Bill] Belichick did when he brought him over from Oakland. He told him he wasn't going to have it. But Randy, when things don’t go well, like no other player I’ve ever been around or...
Like many teams this season, the Bruins were reminded of just how good Henrik Lundvist is, as the New York goaltender blanked the B's, 3-0, Tuesday at TD Garden.
The Bruins fell behind in the first period on a Ryan Callahan power-play goal, and were seconds away from heading into the first intermission down by just one before Ryan McDonagh threw a puck off Zdeno Chara and past Tim Thomas with 12 seconds remaining. The teams skated to a scoreless second period that was mostly dominated by the Bruins, but they couldn't get anything past Lundqvist. Artem Anisimov made it 3-0 in the third period.
The Bruins thought they had a goal in the third period on a Dennis Seidenberg shot from the point, but replays showed that it missed and went in through the side of the net.
With the loss, the Bruins are now 8-8-1 over their last 17 games. The Bruins will now leave for a six-game road trip that begins Wednesday against...
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli met with the media following the signing of defenseman Johnny Boychuk to an extension Tuesday night. In addition to discussing Boychuk's three-year deal, Chiarelli touched on the upcoming Feb. 27 trade deadline.
Chiarelli said that he is "fairly active" in trade talks, but that he has not been able to swing a deal because of the number of teams that have remained in contention. Asked whether he was approaching the deadline as though the team will or or won't have concussed forward Nathan Horton, the GM said he thinks Horton will return this season.
"I don't know. I expect him to be back," Chiarelli said. "He's progressing, and I would think he'd be back. In the back of my head it's that he may be something tat we have to replace, but I would expect him to be back. But we look at players and say, 'Hey, maybe this player could add to our depth but mabe he'd have to play...
According to multiple reports, Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk has agreed to a three-year contract extension. The deal, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie, is worth an annual average value of $3.36 million. Boychuk is playing out a two-year, $3.75 million deal and would have become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.
The 28-year-old is in his third full NHL season, having joined the Bruins in the 2008-09 campaign, having been traded from Colorado for Matt Hendricks in June, 2008. Boychuk has three goals and seven assists this season, with a plus-minus of 23 (fourth-best on the Bruins).
The defenseman is coming off a 2010-11 season in which he played in a career-high 69 games, posting three goals and 13 assists.
