The mystery of what happened to Sidney Crosby's stick and glove that he used to score the overtime goal that gave Canada the gold medal at the Olympics has been solved, and a Bruins player played a big role in the discovery. According to an Associated Press story, B's center Patrice Bergeron discovered the missing glove in his equipment bag, apparently mistakenly placed there while the two used adjoining lockers in Canada's locker room after the Olympic final vs. the United States Feb. 28. Crosby's stick turned up in Toronto, shipped to the wrong location by someone who did not realize it was the historic stick.
"I'm grateful to everyone who took the time and effort to get my equipment back for me," Crosby said on the Penguins website. "These items are irreplaceable and I'm happy to have them back."

Ray Allen sounded like a veteran who believes his Celtics teammates need to get re-focused on the task at hand following an embarrassing 111-91 homecourt loss to the Memphis Grizzlies at TD Garden Wednesday night. "I'd like to think we know there's more out there we need to aspire to," Allen said. "Right now, teams have our number." For more, including video, visit the the Green Street blog.
In a game they never led, the Celtics were embarrassed on their home court Wednesday night as the Memphis Grizzlies cruised to a 111-91 win at TD Garden. The 20-point loss matched their largest margin of defeat this season, a 20-point setback to Cleveland on Feb. 25. The Grizzlies raced out to a 55-33 halftime lead and the Celtics never cut the lead to single figures after that. The younger Grizzlies, who led by as many as 29 in the fourth quarter, outrebounded the Celtics, 48-29, and took advantage of the Celtics, who played in Milwaukee on Tuesday. The Celtics were led by Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, each with 17. Former UConn star Rudy Gay poured in 28 to lead Memphis. The Celtics are off Thursday before hosting Indiana on Friday.

Prior to Wednesday's game with Memphis, many of the Celtics had a special motivational gift waiting for them in their lockers. Manny Pacquiao, widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world, sent several red autographed boxing gloves to the Celtics as a measure of gratitude for being bestowed an honorary member of the Celtics. "It honestly wasn't from me," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "Pacquiao is obviously a huge Celtics fan and he tried to get to our walk-through in the hotel ballroom before we played the Lakers [in Los Angeles]."

Fresh off of wrapping up the NHL general managers meetings in Florida, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said Wednesday in a conference call that the recommended rule change regarding hits to the head "will go through" and that the "planets aligned" for the rule when Marc Savard was hit in the head by Pittsburgh's Matt Cooke the day before the meetings.
The recommended rule change states: “A lateral, back pressure or blindside hit to an opponent where the head is targeted and or the principal point of contact is not permitted. A violation of the above will result in a minor or major penalty and shall be reviewed for possible supplemental discipline.”
Chiarelli also spoke on the hit itself and Cooke's non-suspension. "They couldn't find an infraction that he violated in that hit," Chiarelli said. "They ruled that it was a shoulder to the head, and there's nothing...
