Shot down: B's fall to Leafs in shootout

Joffrey Lupul scored twice and added an assist while Phil Kessel assisted on both Lupul goals as the Maple Leafs beat the Bruins, 4-3, in a shootout Thursday night at TD Garden. The loss kept the Bruins from clinching the Northeast Division title, which would assure the Bruins of finishing no lower than a No. 3 seed in the upcoming Eastern Conference playoffs and would lock up home ice in the first round. 

Brad Marchand and David Krejci scored 59 seconds apart in the second period to erase an early 1-0 deficit. Marchand, who finished with a goal and an assist, scored his fifth short-handed tally this season just 2:09 into the second. The score tied him for second in the NHL and tied the game, 1-1. Krejci then took a perfect centering pass from Milan Lucic 59 seconds later to give the Bruins their first lead. The assist gave Lucic 30 goals and 30 assists, the 10th Bruin since 2005-06 to accomplish the feat. 

Lupul tied it at 2 on...

Krstic leaves with right knee injury

On a second-quarter fast break against the Spurs, Celtics center Nenad Krstic's leg bent in the wrong direction, and he left the game clutching his right knee. He will not return to action.

The Celtics simply called it a "right knee injury" as trainers elevated Krstic's leg. However, C's coach Doc Rivers told TNT sideline reporter David Aldridge, "We don't know for sure, but it does not look good."

Krstic injured his left ACL during the 2006 season. Meanwhile, Jermaine O'Neal returned after missing 56 games with a knee injury of his own, and Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge told The Big Show that Shaquille O'Neal could return to the lineup as soon as Sunday or Tuesday.

Scott: 'Kick the [expletive] out of' Thornton
By: DJ Bean

Shawn Thornton was not happy after somebody chirped at him from the Chicago bench while he was leaving the ice Tuesday night. Thornton, who was bloodied after getting his face mangled by Fernando Pisani‘s blade, said after the game that he wanted to find out who it was, and has since said that the Blackhawks like to chirp. One Blackhawk took exception to it with some colorful language.

“He can say what he wants,” Blackhawks defenseman John Scott told the Chicago Tribune. “He’s going after some of our littlest guys on our team to start a fight. He’s trying to challenge Pisani to a fight. What’s that say about him?

“He’s Mr. Tough Guy and he’s trying to challenge Pisani. If I’m in the lineup, he’s more than welcome to come chirp at me. I’ll kick the [expletive] out of him.”

Ainge: Shaq could return Sunday

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show for his weekly interview on Thursday afternoon. Ainge was first asked about the status of Shaquille O'Neal. Doc Rivers indicated earlier on Thursday that O'Neal's achilles injury could be a problem in the postseason.

"I was just with Shaq, we were just working out down in Waltham," said Ainge. "Shaq is either going to play Sunday or Tuesday. … I think that Doc probably -- "bleed into the playoffs" -- I think is something different than he's not going to play until the playoffs. But it looks like he's ready to go Sunday or Tuesday."

Jermaine O'Neal -- sidelined since January 12 after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee -- is scheduled to make his return to the lineup Thursday vs. the Spurs. Ainge feels both O'Neal centers must be playing key minutes for the Celtics to make a run in the postseason.

"First of all, there'...

Isiah takes (another) shot at Bird

Fourteen years after claiming Larry Bird "would be just another guy" if he were black, Isiah Thomas took another shot at the Celtics legend. This time, he ripped fellow NBA Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson, too.

"I have no problem saying this at all," he told a Fox Sports reporter. "They're all 6[-feet]-9 and Jordan was 6-6 1/2. If they were all 6-1, it wouldn't even be a question. They wouldn't even [expletive] rate. If they were all my size, [expletive], they wouldn't even be talked about.

"I beat the [expletive] out of them when they were that big. If we were all the same size, [expletive]. Make them 6-1 and let's go on the court."
