Kay on D&C: Valentine 'tough to figure out'

Yankees television broadcaster Michael Kay joined Dennis & Callahan Friday morning to talk about the controversy surrounding his weekly discussion with Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine on Kay's New York radio show. Valentine's decision to appear on the show did not go over well with many in Boston, and New Yorkers have criticized Kay's station for having the Red Sox bench boss as a regular guest.

"I think it's ridiculous," Kay said of the criticism. "If I was just a fan, I would want Bill Belichick on our air. I'm sure you guys would want Rex Ryan on your air."

Valentine did not respond well to some questions from D&C during an appearance Wednesday, one week after a similarly contentious interview on The Big Show.

"That's just vintage Bobby," Kay said. "I'm no one to give advice on how to deal with Bobby, but I'll tell you this: We didn't get along for a lot of years. Bobby, if he doesn't know you,...

Rays DH Scott on Fenway 'It's a dump'

Rays designated hitter Luke Scott continued to do his part to anger Red Sox fans, calling Fenway Park "a dump" as the iconic stadium approaches its 100th anniversary.

"As a baseball player, going there to work, it's a dump," Scott told MLB.com.

Added Scott: "I mean, it's old. It does have a great feel and nostalgia, but at the end of the day, I'd rather be at a good facility where I can get my work in. A place where I can go hit in the cage. Where I have space and it's a little more comfortable to come to work.

"You're packed in like sardines there. It's hard to get your work in. ... You have to go to their weight room if you want to lift. From a fan's perspective, it's probably pretty cool to go se a game at a historic...

Mashup: NHL admits ref's error in Pittsburgh

The NHL acknowledged Thursday that a linesman missed an offsides call that led to the Flyers' first goal in Wednesday's playoff game vs. the Penguins. The goal, scored after Danny Briere took a pass a couple of feet past the blue line and skated in alone on net, started Philadelphia on a comeback from a 3-0 deficit that ended with the Flyers winning in overtime.

"There's no other way to explain it but a missed call," NHL senior executive vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell told The Canadian Press. "We're as upset as Pittsburgh, almost. It's a mistake."

The call was missed by veteran linesman Tony Sericolo, who had been skating up the ice when he had to turn quickly the other way after the puck changed possession.

"It was a quick turnaround," Campbell said. "You can see it was a quick 70-foot pass -- the lineman was up with the play and then had to move quickly back, and he saw it from the...

Kelly 'most surprised in building' on winner

Chris Kelly took Claude Julien's adage of "all overtime shots being good shots" to heart Thursday night. He came down the left wing and fired a shot that beat Braden Holtby just 78 seconds into overtime, lifting the Bruins to a 1-0 win over the Capitals in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. The winner was a rocket of slap shot that just found space inside the far post and beat Holtby, who was spectacular in stopping the first 29 shots he faced.

"I think I was probably the most surprised in the building," Kelly said. "I think it might have went off the defenseman’s stick a little bit and changed up. Goalies are so good now that I think that the days of going down the wing and beating a goalie with a shot are long gone. I was pleasantly surprised to see it go in."

Julien thought it was very appropriate that the third-line center get the chance to play the hero in Game 1, especially after...

Overkill: B's win Game 1 in OT

Chris Kelly unloaded a slap shot from the left circle that beat Braden Holtby just 1:18 into the first overtime to give the Bruins a 1-0 win over the Capitals Thursday night in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at TD Garden. Tim Thomas stopped all 17 shots for the shutout. Game 2 will be Saturday afternoon, again in Boston.

With Washington's top two goalies not even dressing due to injury, Holtby stole the show. He stepped in for Tomas Vokoun and Michal Neuvirth and stopped the first 29 shots he faced. He was pressured heavily in the second period as the Bruins outshot the Capitals 17-2, making the shot differential 26-7 through two periods. 

The Bruins had plenty of chances to take the lead on the power play. But as has been the case in the last two weeks, the man advantage was not much help to Boston. The B's had a golden opportunity late in the first period when Jay Beagle was called for a double-minor high-sticking...
