Chiarelli: Horton return 'a longshot'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said on a conference call Sunday that while he won't rule Nathan Horton out for the season, the veteran winger is a "longshot" to play again this season after suffering his most recent concussion in January. 

Horton began skating last week, but has not yet been cleared for contact. Chiarelli noted that Horton is "quite far off right now" as he still has occasional post-concussion syndrome issues. Even if Horton were to be cleared for contact, Chiarelli said the 26-year-old would still need "a couple weeks" before he would be ready to play in games. 

In 46 games this season, Horton has 17 goals and 15 assists for 32 points and an even rating. 

On the status of the team's other injured players, Chiarelli said defensemen Johnny Boychuk (bruised knee) and Adam McQuaid (swollen eye) are both "day-to-day," while he considers goaltender Tuukka Rask "a...

Bobby V: Beckett 'mentally bruised' after loss

Bobby Valentine spoke to a group of reporters on Sunday morning in Detroit and was asked to update the status of Josh Beckett, who allowed seven runs in 4.2 innings pitched (including five home runs) in Saturday's 10-0 loss to the Tigers.

“Just got through talking to him,’’ Valentine told reporters Sunday. “Mentally bruised, but physically fine.’’ 

Beckett said on Saturday that his right thumb was not an issue in the start. The right-hander has seen two specialists over the last week to look at the thumb and told the media that surgery could eventually be a possibility.

Bruins will host Capitals in first round
By: DJ Bean

In a development that took three different games to determine, the Bruins will play the Capitals in the first round of the Stanley Cup finals. 

The Capitals entered the game with 90 points, good for in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Seventh-place Ottawa, with 92 points, lost to the Devils Saturday, allowing the Capitals to match them in points and surpass them due to a tie-breaker by beating the Rangers. Washington's 92 points put them in a tie for the Southeast Division lead with the Panthers, but Florida defeated Carolina to secure the division. When all was said and done, Florida was third (behind fellow division winners New York and Boston), Washington was seventh and Ottawa was eighth. 

The Eastern Conference playoffs will begin with games starting next Wednesday, with the B's and Capitals opening at the Garden on Thursday. The playoff matchups are as follows:

No. 1 Rangers vs. No. 8 Ottawa
