Bourque on D&H: Credit to Julien

Ray Bourque checked in with the Dale & Holley show Wednesday morning and talked about his son, Chris, playing against the Bruins at the TD Garden with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

 

"Chris was really excited about it, and mom and his sister and brother were real excited," the proud father said. "We were all there watching. Nothing like seeing your son come back to Boston and have an opportunity to play in that building where he skated as a young little kid, with many, many Bruins. It was fun to watch."

 

Bourque also talked about the Bruins' slow start and how they appear to be turning a corner with consecutive wins for the first time all season.

 

"After the success that they had last year, sometimes you think it's just going to happen, and you forget how it happened," Bourque said. "And this team, you look at how they played last year, how...

Report: Wagner open to arbitration

Reliever Billy Wagner's agent, Bean Stringfellow, told the Boston Herald that his client might be open to accepting arbitration if the Red Sox offer it. Wagner is a Type A free agent and would allow the Sox to receive two draft picks if he declined arbitration and signed with another team.

 

“Will Billy reject [arbitration]?” Stringfellow said to the Herald. “I just visited with Billy and his family the other day and I can tell you this much: Billy thoroughly enjoyed his time in Boston. It was one of the best experiences he has ever had in baseball. So, does he rule out accepting arbitration? No, he doesn’t."

 

Wagner had garnered the assurance of the Red Sox that they wouldn't pick up his $8 million option for 2010, allowing the pitcher to pursue opportunities to become a closer with another team. Wagner...

Agent: No talks for V-Mart extension

CHICAGO -- Alan Nero, the agent for Red Sox catcher/first baseman Victor Martinez, said that there hasn't been any discussion with the Red Sox regarding an extension for his client, and that, at this point, there is no rush to get one done. "There's nothing to report," Nero said in the lobby of the O'Hare International Airport Hilton. "Basically, he's a Red Sox, it's as simple as that.

 

"There's been no indication on their part, or our part, that that will happen. We're comfortable in whatever they want to do. If they come to us, obviously we'll listen. But neither Theo [Epstein] or Ben [Cherington] have called and said, 'Hey, we want to talk long-term.' There was little or no dialogue at all prior to them exercising the option. The bottom line is that we're content, he's happy to be a Red Sox, and he's going to be a Red Sox for the next year.

 

The Red Sox exercised Martinez' $7.7 million team...

Cup checked: B's beat Pens

Matt Hunwick, Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron scored and Tim Thomas turned away all 27 shots for his 14th career shutout as the Bruins blanked Sidney Crosby and the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-0, at TD Garden. With their win over Buffalo on Saturday, the B's have won consecutive games for the first time this season. Hunwick's backhander fooled Marc-Andre Fleury, as it went over his right shoulder and just under the crossbar at 1:36 of the second period, staking the Bruins to a 1-0 lead. The shot was initially disallowed by the officials, but after a minute of live action, the replay siren went off and referee Bill McCreary received word from replay officials that the puck clearly was in the net. Paille's goal was his first since being acquired from Buffalo last month. For more, visit the Big Bad Blog
