MRI scheduled for Kampfer (knee)
By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Steven Kampfer left Thursday night's preseason loss to the Senators after taking a hit from Ottawa defenseman Jared Cowen. Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the game that Kampfer had suffered a left knee injury and had an MRI scheduled for Friday. 

Kampfer played 38 games in Boston last season before being relegated to seventh defenseman duties and eventually suffering a right knee injury in Providence. He entered Thursday night's game competing with Matt Bartkowski to secure the seventh defense spot.

Thomas, Bruins fall to Senators
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins saw the Senators come back in the third period Thursday and defeat the defending champs, 2-1, at TD Garden.

Milan Lucic got the Bruins on the board in the first period with a power-play goal, and the B's dictated the pace of the game for much of the first two periods. 

After registering just 10 shots on Tim Thomas in the first two periods, the Senators got goals from Daniel Alfredsson and David Rundblad, the latter of which came on the power play with 4:01 remaining in regulation. 

The Bruins went 1-for-6 on the power play, while the Senators went 1-for-4.

The B's will wrap up the preseason Saturday night in Bridgeport, Conn., against the Islanders.

Theo: Sox would like Ortiz, Papelbon back

In his year-ending evaluation of the Red Sox, general manager Theo Epstein praised free agents-to-be David Ortiz and Jonathan Papelbon for their impact on the team on and off the field. Following a season in which Ortiz hit .309 with a .398 OBP, .554 slugging mark and .953 OPS with 29 homers and 96 RBI, and one in which Papelbon converted 31 of 34 save opportunities while producing a 2.94 ERA, striking out 87 and walking 10, Epstein suggested -- without going into detail -- that he would like to see both players in Red Sox uniforms in 2012.

“I can’t say too much about that now expect the general and the obvious. We’d love to have both guys back, if there’s a way to do that,” Epstein said. “They’ve been huge contributors here not only on the field but as leaders. David’s been that way for a long time, been the face of the franchise and an instrumental figure in our clubhouse. I actually told Pap earlier...

Epstein: 'No one blames [Francona]' for Sept.

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein, in an assessment of the state of his organization in the aftermath of the dramatic end of his team's season just after midnight on Thursday morning, said that the Sox "don't believe in scapegoats" and that "no one blames [manager Terry Francona] for what happened in September," when the Sox saw a nine-game lead over the Rays evaporate while going 7-20. 

However, Epstein also suggested that a clarification on Francona's status going forward would have to wait. The Red Sox manager is at the end of a three-year contract, with the team holding a two-year option that would keep him in Boston for 2012 and 2013. Epstein suggested that decisions about the future of Red Sox personnel, including Francona and Epstein himself, would be up for discussion in the coming days in meetings with the Red Sox' ownership group.

"We all failed collectively. Kind of failed collectively in this...

Pedroia to have screw removed from foot

Red Sox GM Theo Epstein confirmed that Kevin Youkilis will undergo surgery to repair his sports hernia and added that second baseman Dustin Pedroia will have the screw in his left foot -- inserted a year ago to promote healing -- removed on Friday. He is expected to face a four- to six-week timetable for recovery.

Those were the only two planned surgeries he noted, though he did say that there were other players who would require "follow up on some nagging issues and issues that have healed but [that] we want to make sure they heal completely during the offseason."
