Thomas in net for Bruins tonight

Canadiens coach Jacques Martin confirmed after Thursday morning's skate that it will be Carey Price in net for the Habs. Tim Thomas will get his third straight start in net for the Bruins after playing solidly against both the Rangers and Red Wings during the recently concluded road trip. Price is 2-6 with a 3.63 goals-against average and an .883 save percentage, and the 22-year-old hasn’t won a game in more than a month, dating back to an Oct. 3 victory over the Sabres.

NBA: No penalties for Rondo, Paul

The NBA has announced that there will be no penalties for an incident that occurred between Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and his New Orleans Hornets counterpart, Chris Paul, following the Celtics' Sunday night win at the TD Garden. Paul pursued Rondo toward the C's locker room after the game before being blocked by assistant coaches.

 

Celtics coach Doc Rivers addressed the situation when speaking on the Dennis & Callahan Show Thursday morning: "It’s a competition, and it’s great to play in great competition, but once the game is over then the competition is over and you let it go. I thought during the game it was more Paul. That’s part of competition. But once the game is over, you let it go. You shake the guy's hand and say, 'We’ll get you again.' "

Belchick: Health the priority

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick said on Thursday that he is more than aware of the importance of keeping his team healthy and taking precautions against the outbreak of the H1N1 flu virus that has hit close to home in the New England region. The Boston Bruins announced Thursday that David Krejci has been diagnosed with the swine flu and will be quarantined until he is cleared to return. 

 

"There's nothing more important than the health of your team," Belichick said. "And we all know this is the time of the year, whether it's that particular one or the colds that go around every year that get picked up and how they can spread pretty quickly. A team that eats together and showers together and is in the locker room together, definitely those are important issues for us all year round, every season."
