BOSTON -- Brooks Laich and Boyd Gordon scored less than three minutes apart midway through the third period to lead the Washington Capitals over the Bruins, 4-1, Tuesday night at TD Garden. It was the eighth straight loss for the Bruins, their longest losing skid in 54 seasons, when the team dropped eight in a row between Dec. 22, 1955-Jan. 12, 1956. It was also their seventh straight home loss, the longest since dropping 11 in a row Dec. 1924-Feb. 1925. David Krejci's 10th of the season on the power play gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead in the first period. But former Bruin Mike Knuble led the comeback with the equalizer in the second. Alex Ovechkin capped off the scoring with an empty net goal. The Capitals, meanwhile, are streaking in the other direction. They set a new franchise record with their 11th straight win, the longest in the NHL since San Jose won 11 in a row two seasons ago. For more, visit the...
Paul Pierce suffered a strained left mid-foot and is listed as day-to-day, the team announced Tuesday night. Pierce was injured during Monday's game against the Wizards when Caron Butler landed on his foot fighting for a loose ball. While NBA.com originally reported that Pierce may have broken his foot, the Celtics' announcement is a positive note for the team that has battled with injuries the entire season. Pierce leads the team in scoring with 18.9 points per game and ranks third on the C's shooting a career-high 46.7 percent from 3-point range.
An NBA source has told TNT analyst David Alridge that Paul Pierce may have a broken left foot and could miss a "significant" amount of time. According to Aldridge, the team doesn't know for sure if the foot is broken, having X-rayed the All-Star Tuesday. Pierce suffered the injury Monday night when he was tangled with Washington's Caron Butler, saying after the game he didn't believe the injury was serious.

The Celtics announced Tuesday afternoon that guard J.R. Giddens underwent successful left knee arthroscopic surgery at the New England Baptist Hospital. The surgery was performed by team physician, Dr. Brian McKeon and assisted by John Rand. No timetable has been set for his return. Giddens, a 6-foot-5 guard, has appeared in 21 games for the Celtics this season and registered season-highs of six points and seven rebounds against New Jersey on Jan. 13. In four games on assignment for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League this season, he averaged 18.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 steal in 31.8 minutes per game.

According to a Tweet from his agent, defensive end Ricky Foley — who had 12 sacks last season in the Canadian Football League — is slated to visit with the Patriots some time in the next few days. Foley, who also reportedly has sit-downs scheduled with the Jets and Rams, is a 27-year-old defensive end and situational pass rusher who has played for the British Columbia Lions since 2006. A 6-foot-2, 245-pounder out of Toronto's York University, he's had 20 sacks in his last four seasons in the CFL. For more Patriots information, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.
The guys have even more reaction to Deflategate and if this is actually a showdown between Bill and Roger.
Tom E. Curran calls the boys during his layover in Denver and gets right into the Deflategate craziness. Tom talks about his knowledge of the situation including his thoughts on if the NFL was indeed trying to set up and catch the Pats in the act. He gets into the relationship between Belichick and the league office, Belichick and Kraft and the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Greg and Steve discuss the Deflategate debacle with callers and give their theories as to what went down in Foxboro last week against the Colts. Both guys think that Pats may be guilty of doing something to the balls, but that so do most other teams. Will Belichick and Brady be punished? Not if the NFL doesn't have proof, which it's looking more and more like they don't.
