B's face Hiller, Ducks

The Bruins will begin their three-game California road trip in Anaheim tonight facing one of the hottest goalies in the NHL. Jonas Hiller was named as the league's "second star" Monday after helping the Ducks go 4-0 last week. Hiller stopped 125 of 131 shots with a 1.50 GAA average during the four wins. Tuukka Rask will start in goal for the Bruins, with Tim Thomas likely to start against the Sharks in San Jose Thursday.

BC blown out by Duke

Boston College stayed with eighth-ranked Duke for a half but then was blown out of Cameron Indoor Stadium in a 79-59 loss to the Blue Devils Wednesday night. Reggie Jackson scored 20 points to lead BC, which fell to 10-7 overall and 1-2 in the ACC. Nolan Smith scored a career-high-tying 24 points for Duke (14-2, 2-1).

 

BC trailed by just three points at the half, 38-35, but Duke opened the second half with an 8-0 run to make it 46-35. After two Joe Trapani free throws, Duke resumed its domination, running off eight more points to make it 54-37 with 14:40 left before Tyler Roche hit a runner from the baseline for BC's first field goal of the half. BC never threatened thereafter.

Seau reportedly announces retirement

Sounds like Junior Seau has retired ... again. The Patriots linebacker reportedly announced during a taping of Showtime's "Inside the NFL" on Wednesday that he is retiring after 20 NFL seasons. "Cris, I'm surfing," Seau told co-host Cris Collinsworth. "It's all over with the speeches. Whatever happens, I can say, honestly say, that that probably was my last game."

 

Seau was asked definitively if Sunday's loss to Baltimore was indeed his last game. "Yeah, that's going to be my last game," he replied.

 

Seau, who turns 41 in a week, spent portions of the last four seasons with the Patriots, including seven games this past season. He made 15 tackles.

 

Seau first announced his retirement in August 2006 saying he had "graduated" from the NFL. Four days later, he signed with the Patriots.
