Wideman out with shoulder injury

Bruins defenseman Dennis Wideman will miss Monday afternoon's game with a left shoulder injury sustained during Saturday night's game against the Islanders. Wideman hit the boards awkwardly in the third period of the shootout win over the Isles, and B's coach Claude Julien termed the blueliner "day-to-day" prior to Monday's matinee against the Avalanche. Johnny Boychuk, a healthy scratch for the first four games of the season, will play in Wideman's place. For more Bruins info, check in with the Big Bad Blog.

Wilfork: 'We didn't close the door'

Patriots players Vince Wilfork and Sammy Morris stopped in to chat with Dale & Holley on Monday morning about the previous day's 20-17 overtime loss to the Broncos.

 

Wilfork lamented the Patriots' inability to protect a 10-point second-half lead and finish off the Broncos.

 

"We had it, and we never closed the door," Wilfork said. "Offense, defense and special teams — all three phases, we didn't close the door when we had the opportunity to close it. We can kick ourselves in the butt for that, but we have to learn from it and we have to move on."

 

Morris said this loss — like all losses — does not sit well with him.

 

"I am, I guess, a sore loser. I hate losing, I take it real personal," he said. "I just kind of reflect on the things I could have done better. I really just kind of pout. I’ve always said that win or...

Brady on D&C: 'I need to do better'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appeared on the Dennis & Callahan show this morning to recount Sunday's ugly 20-17 overtime loss to the Broncos. As with past weeks, Brady continued to say the team needs to improve its communication and execution, starting with himself.

 

"Believe me, there's obviously after a game a lot of soul-searching," Brady said. "The only thing I can focus on is what I need to do better. And there's plenty of things I need to do better."

 

Brady addressed the critical play, an incomplete pass to an open Wes Welker on a key third down late in the game.

 

"Wes was thinking one thing and I'm thinking another," Brady said. "That's just the way it is. Wes and I need to be on the same page. I see what he was looking at, and he understands what I was looking at. That comes up over the course of a game. We should have hit the play. There's no doubt about...

'Uneasy' free-agent future for Bay

After the Red Sox were eliminated by the Angels with a 7-6 loss in Game 3 of the American League Division Series, outfielder Jason Bay addressed the possibility that he had played his last home game in Boston. The outfielder said that, since coming to the Sox at the trade deadline in 2008, his experience was singularly enjoyable in Boston. That fact made it somewhat difficult for him to contemplate whether he might end up in another city next season.
 
"It’s weird. Every year, whether it’s the postseason or regular season that ends, you kind of know where you’re going to be. This is uncharted for me. It’s a little uneasy," said Bay. "I don’t know whether it’s the last time I’ll be in here or not, but I guess I’m not the first guy to go through it."
