BELMONT — The Bruins opted for a change of scenery Wednesday morning by practicing on the Olympic-size rink at the Belmont Hill School. The lower stands were packed with students watching the practice. Any kind of change for the B’s probably would be a good thing as they prepare to make an attempt at ending an eight-game losing streak by hosting Montreal Thursday. They dropped a 4-1 contest to the Washington Capitals at TD Garden Tuesday night. For more Bruins coverage, check out the Big Bad Blog.
Legendary NFL quarterback Joe Montana checked in with the Dale & Holley show Wednesday morning and talked quarterbacks. Montana said he has spoken to Tom Brady a number of times and said of the Patriots quarterback: "When he's healthy, there's no one better than that." Montana also spoke highly of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, saying: "He controls what happens to him more than any of the other quarterbacks do."
Montana said listening to the buildup for the Super Bowl makes him wish he could still play. "It's fun [because] you know what those guys are going through, but otherwise it kind of makes you mad that you've got to retire so early," he said.

“I don’t ever want to speak for ownership because I have no knowledge of what they have and what they don’t,” Boggs told the Union-Tribune. “[But] the feeling we’re getting is more than likely [the Padres] are going to have to trade Adrian Gonzalez because [they] can’t afford him.”
Padres CEO Jeff Moorad did not dispute the statement. He suggested that his team's concern for its deployment of resources means that it must put the "long-term interests of the club" ahead...
According to published reports, Patriots receiver Wes Welker underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left knee Tuesday at Massachusetts General Hospital, and the procedure was successful.
The Boston Herald reported that team doctor Thomas Gill performed the surgery, while The Boston Globe quoted a person with knowledge of the surgery saying that Welker was "perfectly OK" after the surgery.
Welker suffered the injury in the regular-season finale against the Texans, but the receiver still managed to finish the year with 123 catches — despite missing almost three complete games. He had 1,348 yards and four touchdowns and was named to the Associated Press All-Pro team.
