Malkin out against Bruins

Penguins star center Evgeni Malkin will miss his second game in a row on Thursday night against the Bruins at the TD Garden with an injury. Malkin was hit by a shot on Sunday against the Lightning and was scratched for Wednesday night's game, a 5-2 loss in New Jersey. Malkin said he knows the situation that the Bruins have with Matt Cooke and the Penguins after Cooke's on Marc Savard on March 7 that sidelined the center for the rest of the season with a Grade 2 concussion but expects the Bruins to not play a dirty game.

 

"I can't play tonight, I am still sore. I hope it is day by day and I hope I can play the game [on Saturday] but I am still sore," Malkin said after the Penguins morning skate. "I know the situation. A tough game, a physical game but I think that Boston needs points towards the playoffs and [will] not play dirty tonight ... I think it will be a tough game but not dirty."

Sox acquire Celestino from M's

The Red Sox announced that they have acquired right-handed pitcher Miguel Celestino from the Mariners to completing the Jan. 7 trade that sent first baseman Casey Kotchman to Seattle in exchange for infielder Bill Hall and cash.

 

Celestino, 20, went 5-3 with a 4.73 ERA in 13 games (12 starts) for the Rookie-level Peoria Mariners of the Arizona League in 2009, his first professional season in the United States. He tossed at least five innings in 10 of his 13 appearances and had a 13-inning scoreless streak from Aug. 11-16.  He pitched in the Dominican Summer League from 2007-08 and was originally signed by Seattle as an international free agent on Dec. 16, 2006.

B's Thornton: No retribution for Cooke

Bruins forward Shawn Thornton spoke to the media following the team's morning skate on Thursday. Asked if retribution would be in store for Penguins forward Matt Cooke, Thornton said: "There isn't going to be any, you can't. You guys keep talking and talking about it and I'm sure it's a good story and you guys are getting a lot of viewers for it, but at the end of the day it's a hockey game and we're a couple of points up in a playoff race that we need to get in to. The team's more important right now."

Pats schedule workout with Gibson

The Patriots have scheduled a private workout with Ohio State defensive end Thaddeus Gibson. The news, which was first reported by the National Football Post and confirmed Thursday by WEEI.com via a league source, indicates that New England has more than just a cursory interest in the 6-foot-2, 243-pounder, who figures to transition to outside linebacker at the professional level. Last season with the Buckeyes, he was second-team All-Big Ten Conference as he led the Buckeyes with 13 tackles for losses, and was second on the team with four sacks.
