By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Sunday night that they have traded forward Brian McGrattan and defenseman Sean Zimmerman, both of whom had been playing in the AHL for Providence, to the Ducks in exchange for forwards David Laliberte and Stefan Chaput.

 

McGrattan, whom the Bruins signed after the season's second game, never played a game for Boston, and he registered five points and 97 penalty minutes in 39 games this season for Providence.

 

Both Laliberte, 24, and Chaput, 22, will report to Providence. They have 18 and 10 points, respectively, in the AHL this season. Chaput has not played in the NHL, while Laliberte totaled three points in 11 games with the Flyers.

Okajima struggles as Red Sox fall to Twins

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Red Sox pitchers allowed 12 hits — including a home run to former Sox Jeff Bailey — as the Twins took an 8-4 win in the teams' Grapefruit League opener Sunday night at Hammond Stadium.  

 

Hideki Okajima suffered through the worst outing for the Red Sox, allowing four runs on five hits over an inning. Dan Wheeler allowed the Bailey homer, while Brandon Duckworth succumbed to two runs on three hits in pitching the eighth for the Sox.

 

Some of the more notable performances for the Red Sox came from Josh Beckett, Clay Buchholz, Mike Cameron, Lars Anderson and Mark Wagner. Beckett gave up a run on two hits over two innings in his start, while Buchholz followed with a pair of perfect innings. Cameron, playing the field for the first time since undergoing surgery on a sports hernia, looked impressive both in center and on the basepaths, stealing a base in the first inning after singling...

Beckett: If healthy, numbers will be there

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Josh Beckett finished his first start of spring training with mixed results, allowing a run on two hits over two innings while throwing 23 pitches (15 strikes) against the Twins Sunday night at Hammond Stadium.

 

"I think there are certain things you want to work on. I felt like I threw some good changeups when I was behind in the count. They weren't strikes, but they were something else I tried to do," said Beckett, who allowed his run when Jason Repko tripled to drive in Chris Parmelee, who had doubled.

 

"Health is a big thing, and we're trying to build up right now. It's very hard in small sample sizes to get positive or negative feedback. The second inning wasn't as good as the first, but the first inning maybe wasn't as good as it appeared. I felt like there were some things I needed to work on in the first inning I think I might have gotten away with. They are small samples, and...

Report: Kaczur likely done with Pats
By: DJ Bean

INDIANAPOLIS -- According to a report from the Boston Herald, the Patriots have asked offensive lineman Nick Kaczur to take a "massive pay cut" from his $3.4 million salary, and that given his unwillingness to do so, the Patriots are "going to have to" cut the 31-year-old. 

 

Kaczur has played his entire career with the Patriots since they chose him with the 100th overall pick of the 2005 NFL draft. The native of Brantford, Ontario, missed all of last season with a back injury.
