Kerrigan's brother charged with manslaughter

The brother of former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was charged with manslaughter in the death of their 70-year-old father. The district attorney's office said Mark Kerrigan's violent attack during a "trivial" argument over use of the family telephone led to Daniel Kerrigan's death on Jan. 24.

 

Mark Kerrigan, 45, was indicted by a Middlesex Superior Court grand jury after previously being charged with assault. He had been living in the family's Stoneham home since being released on bail.

 

"We allege that the defendant's violent reckless actions and complete disregard for his father's safety and well-being endangered Daniel Kerrigan's life and resulted in the substantial harm that led to his untimely death," district attorney Gerry Leone said in announcing the indictment.

 

"This defendant should have known that the cruel acts that he committed against his elderly father...

Seidenberg hopes to stay with Bruins

Injured Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg, out for the rest of the season with a lacerated flexor carpi radialis tendon in his left forearm, spoke to the media after the team's morning skate at TD Garden on Thursday. Seidenberg will miss eight weeks after having surgery on Tuesday and expressed disappointment that he will maybe not be able to play again this season. The defenseman was acquired by the Bruins at the NHL trade deadline in March and had two goals and seven assists with Boston before the injury. He said on Thursday that he has enjoyed his time in Boston and would be open to signing with the team when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer.

 

"It has been good. I am playing lots and I couldn't ask for anything more. I think I fit in nicely and I hope I stay here," Seidenberg said.

Former B's coach Burns hospitalized

Former Bruins coach Pat Burns has been hospitalized due to complications from his lung and colon cancer. Burns entered the hospital on Sunday, his 58th birthday, according to a Montreal sports radio station on which he made regular appearances.

 

Burns coached the Bruins for three plus-seasons before he was fired eight games into the 2000-01 campaign. He coached four NHL teams over 14 seasons from 1988-2004, winning 501 games overall and capturing a Stanley Cup title with the New Jersey Devils in 2003. He was forced to leave coaching because of the colon cancer, and when he was diagnosed with lung cancer last year, he opted against treatment.

Ump: Slow Sox, Yanks 'a disgrace to baseball'

Joe West, chief of the umpiring crew that worked the just-concluded Red Sox-Yankees series at Fenway Park, criticized the teams for their slow play and lack of cooperation in attempting to improve the pace of the game. The first two games of the three-game series averaged 3 hours, 47 minutes. Wednesday's game went 3:21.

 

"They're the two clubs that don't try to pick up the pace," West told the The Record, a newspaper representing Bergen County, N.J. "They're two of the best teams in baseball. Why are they playing the slowest?

 

"It's pathetic and embarrassing. They take too long to play."

 

Added West, who worked the plate Sunday night: "The commissioner of baseball says he wants the pace picked up. We try. And [Tuesday night's game] still almost went four hours." This, despite the fact that Tuesday's home plate umpire, Angel Hernandez, refused to grant time out to...

Doc on D&C: Rasheed's 'not going to change'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning and talked about Rasheed Wallace's recent behavior, including a run-in between the player and coach during Sunday's win over Cleveland. "I don't know what exactly happened with Rasheed," Rivers said. "I know he felt that the official said something to him. Once that started, I could see Rasheed was not coming back [emotionally], let's say. Once you get to the that state where emotionally you're over the line ... usually when the players on our team go up to him when he starts going off on officials, he backs away from the players. But once I saw where he was at with our own players, and then with me, I knew I just had to get him out of the game and sit him down and play him another day. I waited until the next day [to talk to him about it]. Rasheed understands the next day that those are things he can't do or shouldn't do. But there are times he...
