Bruins assign Caron to Providence
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Sunday that they have assigned winger Jordan Caron to Providence. Caron has played in four of the team's eight games this season, recording no points while playing on the third line.

Caron was a healthy scratch the last two games after the return of David Krejci to the lineup. 

The team's first-round pick in 2009, Caron has made the team out of camp in each of the last two seasons but has been up and down between Boston and Providence. Last season, Caron played 23 games in the NHL.

Source: No plans for Sox to poach manager

While there has been plenty of industry speculation that the Red Sox might make a run at a current manager of another big league team, a source familiar with the team's search for a successor to Terry Francona said that the Sox have no plans at this time to interview current managers of other teams. For now, at least, that would suggest that the Sox' pool of candidates does not include highly regarded skippers such as Blue Jays manager John Farrell (who was thought to be a potential successor to Francona before he accepted the job in Toronto last offseason) or Padres manager Bud Black (who was viewed as a top candidate entering the last Red Sox managerial search in 2003 before he declined to be interviewed).

The Red Sox have been limited to performing due diligence in their managerial search to this point, given the state of flux in the team's front office. Once Ben Cherington is introduced as the new Red Sox general manager on Tuesday, however, the Sox...

Pujols makes history as Cards win Game 3

Albert Pujols delivered one perhaps the greatest game in World Series history, going 5-for6- with three homers, six runs batted in and four runs as the Cardinals crushed the Rangers, 16-7, to win Game 3 of the World Series. St. Louis now leads the best-of-seven Fall Classic, two games to one.

Pujols became the third player in World Series history to go deep three times in a game, joining Babe Ruth (who accomplished the feat in 1926 and 1928) and Reggie Jackson (who reached the milestone in 1977). He also became the second player in World Series history with five runs in a game, joining Paul Molitor (1982) while tying the record for most RBI in a World Series contest, joining Hideki Matsui (2009) and Bobby Richardson (1960).

The Cardinals took an early 1-0 lead on Allen Craig's solo homer in the first, then exploded for four runs in the fourth inning against Matt Harrison. While the Rangers rallied for three runs to briefly make the game...

Sharks hand Bruins latest loss
By: DJ Bean

What had the makings of a great comeback win proved to be nothing more than the Bruins' latest loss, as they fell to the Sharks, 4-2, at TD Garden on Saturday. 

The B's seemed destined for a quiet night as they trailed, 2-0, in the third perio before goals from Milan Lucic and Tyler Seguin just 29 seconds apart tied the game at two. Lucic took advantage of a puck bouncing around Antti Niemi's crease to get the B's on the board and later fed Seguin, who tied it with a wrist shot. The Sharks would end up taking the lead for good when former Boston College Eagle Benn Ferriero beat Tim Thomas to make it 3-2. Patrick Marleau sealed it with an empty-netter. 

The Sharks took their initial lead with goals in the first and second period from Joe Pavelski and Logan Couture, respectively. 

With the loss, the Bruins have fallen to 3-5-0 on the season. They will have plenty of time to regroup for their next contest, as they next play...

McQuaid remains out vs. Sharks
By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will be kept out of Saturday's game against the Sharks at TD Garden, marking the fourth consecutive game the second-year defenseman has missed with a neck injury. 

McQuaid returned to practice Friday and participated in Saturday's optional morning skate, but was not not he ice when the B's took warmups Saturday night. In his place on the third pairing with Andrew Ference will be Steven Kampfer, who is playing in his second game of the season since returning from a sprained left knee. 

McQuaid suffered his injury last Wednesday against the Hurricanes when he crashed into the boards behind Tim Thomas' net. The Bruins have maintained that McQuaid's injury is to his neck, but that they are treating it as though it's a concussion to be safe.
