INDIANAPOLIS -- Ahmad Bradshaw scored on 6-yard run up the middle with 57 seconds remaining as the Giants once again crushed the Super Bowl dreams of the Patriots, 21-17, in Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Patriots allowed Bradshaw to score to give Tom Brady time to march down the field for a chance to come back. The Patriots converted a fourth-and-16 but could not get the game-winning score as a Hail Mary in the end zone fell incomplete.
Brady fired touchdown passes to Danny Woodhead and Aaron Herandez as the Patriots led, 17-15, heading into the fourth quarter. The Patriots fell short of finishing off a year dedicated to Myra Kraft. It would've been the Pats' fourth Super Bowl title in the last 11 seasons. The Giants won their fourth Super Bowl title.
Brady finished 27-of-41 for 276 yards and two touchdowns with an interception, while Manning was 30-of-40 for 296 yards and a touchdown. Hakeem Nicks caught nine passes for 105...
INDIANAPOLIS -- Running back Kevin Faulk will not be active for Sunday's Super Bowl while offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer is active for the first time since breaking his right foot against the Eagles on Nov. 27. Also active and returning to action is wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, who was inactive for the AFC championship in the wake of his father's funeral.
The full list of Patriots inactives for Super Bowl XLVI includes QB Ryan Mallett, Faulk, RB Shane Vereen, LB Gary Guyton, OL Donald Thomas, OL Nick McDonald and DL Ron Brace.
This the fifth trip to the Super Bowl for Faulk but the first time he has been scratched. Running back Stevan Ridley was inactive for the AFC championship after fumbling in the season finale against the Bills and against the Broncos in the AFC divisional playoff.
Brace is not the only former Boston College defensive star inactive for the biggest game of the season. The...
The Bruins got back to winning Sunday, defeating the Capitals, 4-1, at the Verizon Center.
On a day when Claude Julien shuffled some of the Bruins' lines amidst the team's struggles, it was Patrice Bergeron's line -- which stayed intact -- the produced big for Boston. Both Bergeron (two assists) and Brad Marchand (a goal and an assist) had two-point games for the Bruins, who broke a two-game losing streak.
Playing with Milan Lucic and Chris Kelly, Rich Peverley sent a pass through Dennis Wideman and onto the stick of Lucic in front, and Lucic finished the play with his 19th goal of the season at 10:45 in the first period. Marchand made it 2-0 late in the period with his 19th of the year. After a scoreless second period, Tyler Seguin took a nice feed from Marchand in front and buried his team-leading 20th goal of the season.
Tim Thomas' shutout bid was broken up with 7:56 remaining in the game by Marcus Johansson's 11th goal of the...
The Celtics took an eight-point lead in the first quarter of Sunday's contest against the Grizzlies at TD Garden and never looked back, claiming a comfortable 98-80 victory. The win was Boston's fourth straight, matching a season high and giving the Celtics eight victories in their last nine contests.
Kevin Garnett poured in 24 points on 9-of-12 shooting and also corraled nine rebounds. Paul Pierce added 21 points and six rebounds, while Rajon Rondo added 14 assists to his five points and five boards.

Giants defensive lineman Chris Canty took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to offer a prediction for Super Bowl XLVI, writing that New York would beat the Patriots by 11 points.
The tweet from Canty was in response to the following from @JasonRomano (Jason Romano), who wrote: Send me your Super Bowl predictions that stink -- Closest to the score gets a copy of @ToddGongwer's new book "Lead for God's Sake." That prompted the following from @chriscanty99: Giants 28, New England 17.
Canty already had been responsible for perhaps the week's biggest controversy when he told a New York television station, "Get ready for a great game on Super Bowl Sunday, and get ready for a parade on Tuesday." The defensive lineman later said that he...
