Mashup: ESPN analyst motivates Pistons

Last month, ESPN football analyst Tom Jackson was in the middle of a controversy for saying he picked against the Jets in an effort to motivate them to beat the Patriots. On Wednesday, the Pistons extended the Cavaliers' losing streak to 26 games, and afterward the Detroit players credited ESPN's Tim Legler for inspiring them. Legler predicted a Cavs victory.

 

"Tim Legler, we heard you," Pistons forward Tracy McGrady said. "You gave us some bulletin-board material. We used that."

 

Read more about that story, plus read what's being said about Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for being in a relationship with a 17-year-old high school girl, at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Julien on Habs: 'We're not throwing daggers'

Asked if he thought the Canadiens did anything that crossed the line in Wednesday's fight-filled contest, Bruins coach Claude Julien said it was just a hard-fought battle and nothing more. 

 

"I'm not going to stand here and complain about that stuff. Teams have to stand up for themselves," Julien said. "They stood up for themselves and so did we. We're not going to be throwing any daggers here at the other team. We're just going to say it was one of those hard-fought games, both played hard, and that's the way it ended."

 

Nearly 190 penalty minutes were assigned in the contest that featured seven fights, including one between goalies Carey Price and Bruins netminder Tim Thomas in the second period and five bouts in the game's final 49 seconds. The Bruins held on for an 8-6 win, their first in four tries against Montreal this season.

Thomas on fight: 'I had this big ol' plan'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas wasn't going to stay in his net as he watched Carey Price put his teammates in a compromising position with the Habs and B's brawling in the second period of Wednesday night's 8-6 Bruins win. When Thomas skated out of his net for a second time to send the message for Price to stay in his own net, Price stayed out and fought Thomas.

 

"You just can't let it be an outnumbered situation," Thomas said after the game. "That's what I was thinking when I went down there. He was more than willing to fight."

 

As for the fight itself, Thomas, who saw Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro fall victim from a left hand from Pittsburgh's Brent Johnson last week, had also hoped to use his left to his advantage. 

 

"I had this big ol' plan," Thomas said with a grin. "I was going to grab his right and I was going to throw lefts because I know he's bigger...

Wild won: B's outslug Habs in showdown

In a game that feature eight goals in the second period, 11 men in the two penalty boxes at once and a fight between the goalies, the Bruins beat the Canadiens, 8-6, Wednesday night at TD Garden in an epic battle between the two archrivals. Milan Lucic and Michael Ryder each scored twice and Nathan Horton scored and added four assists in a five-point night to help the Bruins extend their lead to four points over Montreal in the division and remain solidly in third place in the Eastern Conference. 

 

The Bruins took an early 2-0 lead after the first period on goals by Brad Marchand and Dennis Seidenberg just 12 seconds apart. But the Canadiens tied it on goals by Brian Gionta and P.K. Subban. That's when the game took a crazy turn. Adam McQuaid would score just 78 seconds later, beginning a run of five goals by the two teams in three minutes.

Thomas, Price duke it out in goalie fight

In a growing trend, there was another fight involving goalies in the NHL and this one involved the Bruins and their archrival Canadiens. 

 

As several skaters battled in a scrum behind Montreal goalie Carey Price, Tim Thomas skated the length of the ice and challenged Price to a fight with 7:24 left in the second period as part of a donnybrook at the Garden Wednesday. The skirmish between lasted just 15 seconds as Price dragged Thomas to the ice and neither one landed any punches of signficance. 

 

Price and Thomas actually talked politely and tapped each other on the shoulder before heading to their benches while the officials spent nearly 10 minutes deciding the penalties. When it was over, six Bruins and five Canadiens were sent to their respective penalty boxes. The Canadiens scored just 11 seconds after play resumed on the power play that resulted from the fracas.
