Bruins fall short vs. Rangers

Christopher Higgins scored with 1:29 remaining in the third period, lifting the New York Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the Bruins Monday night in New York. Higgins' goal spoiled a late rally by the Bruins, who were down 2-0 late in the game. The Rangers scored on a power-play goal by Ales Kotalik in the first and an even-strength goal by Erik Christensen in the second, before the B's rallied to tie the game on goals by Matt Hunwick and Blake Wheeler in the final minutes of the third period. The more pressing concern for the B’s, however, is the status of leading scorer Patrice Bergeron, who appeared to injure his right hand or wrist when hit by a Dennis Wideman shot in the second period. Bergeron went for X-rays and did not return.

Beltre agrees to deal with Sox

WEEI.com has confirmed that the Red Sox have agreed to terms with free-agent third baseman Adrian Beltre on a one-year, $9 million deal that includes a $5 million player option for 2011. The financial terms were first reported by Peter Gammons (via Twitter). WEEI.com has also learned that the deal includes an escalator for the player option that would be triggered by a significant number of plate appearances.

 

The 30-year-old Beltre played in 111 games with Seattle last season, hitting .265 with eight homers. The three previous seasons Beltre clubbed 25, 26, and 25 home runs, respectively. Beltre is known as one of the best defensive third basemen in the game, which is one of the major reasons he has been targeted by the Red Sox.

Belichick: Houston field is 'terrible'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick, making his weekly appearance on The Big Show, talked about Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, the injury to Wes Welker, Julian Edelman and the upcoming playoff game against the Baltimore Ravens. In regards to Welker's injury and the factors that may have contributed to it, Belichick and The Big Show crew spent a fair amount of time discussing the turf at Houston's field. Said Belichick: "The turf down there is terrible. ... To me, player safety starts on the surface that we play on. ... The quality of the field, I thought, was poor."

Pats coordinator Pees hospitalized

WEEI has learned that Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees was taken to the hospital during the third quarter of the Patriots' 34-27 loss to the Texans Sunday afternoon in Houston. Pees experienced shortness of breath while sitting in the coaches box and was consequently rushed to a nearby hospital. A battery of tests were done and it has been determined that Pees should make a full recovery and will get back to work this week. The 60-year-old defensive coordinator did not travel back to New England with the team following the game, but he is expected to return later tonight.
