No limp for Gronk in final walk-through

The following is the Saturday pool report on the Patriots session from Tom E. Curran of Comcast SportsNet, who filled in for Alex Marvez of Foxsports.com:

INDIANAPOLIS -- Bill Belichick and Tom Brady were the last Patriots to walk off the field at Lucas Oil Stadium Saturday afternoon after a 90-minute outing with friends and family that included official team Super Bowl photos.

From just past noon until 1:30 p.m., Patriots players, coaches and staff mingled with family and posed for picture after picture as the clock ticked down to Super Bowl XLVI against the New York Giants.

Brady and Belichick will be trying Sunday to win their fourth Super Bowl in five appearances.

Leaving their team hotel on the campus of IUPUI at 11:45 a.m., the Patriots traveled through a raw drizzle in a 10-bus caravan.

Cook: 'Really wanted to pitch' for McClure

New Red Sox pitcher Aaron Cook told WEEI.com's Alex Speier that he's healthy for the first time since 2009 and eager to get his career back on track after signing with the Sox on a minor league deal. Cook has battled turf toe, a broken leg and shoulder inflammation over the last three seasons, but he feels that he's put those injuries behind him.

“This offseason, it’s been really good. I’ve put on another 10 pounds of muscle. I feel strong. I feel like my arm is in the best shape it’s been in in a long time,” said Cook. “That’s really huge for me, just going into spring training knowing I don’t have any health issues, and all I need to do is go out and worry about pitching the way I know how to pitch."

Cook said he signed with the Sox because of the fan support and the presence of pitching coach Bob McClure with whom he had success in Colorado.

“If I had concerns about my health, it...

Cooke lifts Penguins past Bruins
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins' struggles continued Saturday afternoon as they fell to the Penguins, 2-1, at TD Garden.

The B's have lost back-to-back games for the first time since dropping contests to the Jets and Panthers on Dec. 6 and 8. 

Evgeni Malkin scored his 28th goal of the season when he beat Tim Thomas on a rebound with the Penguins on the power play late in the first period. Bruins nemesis Matt Cooke extended the Penguins' lead in the third period before a Joe Corvo wrist shot from the point got the Bruins on the board. 

Thomas made 26 saves in the losing effort, while Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves for the Penguins. 

The Bruins will travel to Washington to face the Capitals on Sunday afternoon.

Pats-Rams London ticket sales stopped

The sale of Patriots-Rams tickets for their scheduled game in London on Oct. 28 has been halted while the Rams try to resolve an issue related to their lease on the Edward Jones Dome.

"We're going to play the London games," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told The Associated Press on Friday. "We hope it will be with the Rams and the New England Patriots next year. That's what we planned. ... But there are issues that obviously are going to have to get resolved. We know there are discussions going on. We hope that will get resolved shortly."
