Milbury: Bruins 'having trouble' with Seguin

NESN analyst Mike Milbury was a guest of the Mut & Merloni show Tuesday morning. Milbury was first asked about Monday night's 5-3 loss to the Rangers at Madison Square Garden, a game that saw the Bruins blow a three-goal lead. 

Claude Julien told reporters after the game that the Bruins "decided to get cute" with the 3-0 lead. Milbury didn't think that was the case.

"No, I took it as a sloppy effort by a Bruins team that didn't have much at stake," said Milbury. "And I think they'll turn the page real fast, and not worry too much about it, not read too much into it. Give the Rangers credit, they got a little lucky, [Tim] Thomas was not on his A game, the Bruins were a little sloppy and the Rangers were just desperate. In the end, I wouldn't read anything more into it than that."

The loss almost locks the Bruins into the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Assuming that is where the Bruins...

Krstic: 'I think I'll be ready for playoffs'

Doc Rivers called his first practice since bruising his right knee a “tentative” one, but Nenad Krstic was just happy to be back on the court Monday afternoon working out and getting ready for what he believes will be his return Tuesday against the 76ers at TD Garden.

Of course, it looked a lot worse for Krstic last Thursday night in San Antonio when his knee appeared to buckle in the second quarter.

He came off the court, did not play again that night and immediately went for an MRI the next day.

“I was upset but I knew right away [it wasn't serious] or anything like that,” Krstic said. “When I was in New Jersey, I had the ACL [tear] and I knew it wasn’t the ACL. I was thinking maybe it was meniscus but obviously, I’m not a doctor. But I was just waiting for the MRI and the day and a half was really long for me.

“I can get through the pain but it’s just still in my head a little...

Mashup: Millar critical of Piniella's managing

Former Red Sox first baseman Kevin Millar, who was one of the final cuts by the Cubs last year, criticized ex-Cubs manager Lou Piniella for his lack of communication and apparent disorganization. "I didn't get a chance to play with Lou, but I mean, there definitely was something missing," Millar said Monday in a radio appearance on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" in Chicago. "You have to have more organization and know who is going in the game that day."

Piniella retired Aug. 23 and was replaced by Mike Quade, who has been well received by players for being better prepared than his predecessor. Added Millar: "Nothing against Lou Piniella, he managed a lot of years and you get to the point where you don't think about those things, but it was a little frustrating from the player's side -- period. There were no lineups, Lou didn't know who was playing and who was going in, and it gets old. So then what happens ... you get...

UConn beats Butler for title

Connecticut won the third men's basketball title in school history Monday night, defeating Butler 53-41 in the championship game at Reliant Stadium in Houston. Kemba Walker (16 points) and Jeremy Lamb (12 points) led the Huskies, giving coach Jim Calhoun his third national championship, something only four other coaches have done.

Both teams struggled in the first half, the lowest-scoring first half since 1946, when Oklahoma State led North Carolina 23-17. Butler held a 22-19 lead at halftime, and a quick three-pointer from the Bulldogs' Chase Stigall made it 25-19 with 19:36 left.

But then a 22-3 run from UConn put the game away. The Bulldogs endured an awful stretch of shooting throughout the second half and finished just 18.8 percent from the field for the game, the lowest shooting percentage in championship game history. Shelvin Mack was the only Butler player in double figures, finishing the night with 13 points.

Bruins blow three-goal lead, lose in NY
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins blew a three-goal lead Monday night at Madison Square Garden, falling victim to two late goals within 51 seconds to drop a 5-3 decision to the Rangers,

The Bruins jumped out to a 3-0 lead, as first-period goals from Daniel Paille and Nathan Horton were followed by Chris Kelly's first goal as a Bruin at 10:32 of the second. The Rangers would quickly climb their way back into the game, getting a pair of second-period tallies from Vaclav Prospal, with Wojtek Wolski picking up assists on each goal. Brandon Dubinsky and Michael Sauer scored at 16:12 and 17:03, respectively, to tie it and take the lead in the third. Derek Stepan sealed it with an empty-netter. 

Tim Thomas took the loss, allowing four goals and seeing his record fall to 33-11-9.
