David Krejci termed himself doubtful for the Bruins season opening game against the Washington Capitals on Oct. 1 while discussing his recovery from right hip surgery on Monday morning. Krejci skated with the rest of his teammates for the first time during training camp, and spent nearly an hour on the TD Garden ice Monday morning. The pivot said that the only time he still feels pain is when he crosses over on the right side. While the playmaking center still harbors a great deal of desire to be ready for the beginning of the season, he labeled it a "10 percent chance" that he'll be ready to go when the puck drops on the NHL season.
"If I didn't feel any pain then I'd be 100 percent and ready to play," said Krejci. "I feel pretty good when I skate straight or when I cross over on the left side. When I cross over on the right side that hurts. It...

Jon Lester threw eight shutout innings, allowing two hits, and Jason Bay homered inside the 'Pesky Pole' to lead the Red Sox to a 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays and sweep of the split doubleheader. Lester is unbeaten in his last 10 starts, going 5-0 over that span. The Red Sox, in sweeping the three-game weekend series, have won five straight at home and improve to 50-21 at Fenway Park, the best home mark in the majors. Dustin Pedroia's two-run homer in the eighth inning was the difference in the first game as the Red Sox prevailed, 3-1. The Red Sox have Monday off before Daisuke Matsuzaka returns on Tuesday night for the opener of a three-game series with the Angels at Fenway. For more, visit the Full Count blog.
With Victor Martinez having caught Clay Buchholz in Game 1 of Sunday's day-night doubleheader, Jason Varitek will be behind the dish for Game 2 against the Tampa Bay Rays. Kevin Youkilis, after going 0-for-4 and playing third in the first game, will get the second game off.
The Sox will be looking for their second sweep of a doubleheader this season.

Bruins center David Krejci skated with a group of injured/recovering Bruins players during an early morning skate prior to the two main practice sessions at the TD Garden in Sunday's training camp opener. B's coach Claude Julien labeled Krejci as "day to day" while he recovers from right hip surgery, but also noted that the 23-year-old center is "ahead of schedule" in the healing process. Joining Krejci in the early non-contact group were Zach MacDermid, Zach McKelvie, Jordan Caron, Jordan Knackstedt and Kevin Regan. Knackstedt was kept in the early group until his conditioning is up to par with the other players -- never a good sign for a young player hoping to impress at NHL training camp.
