Carlo, Heinen impress in B's preseason opener
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins opened preseason play Monday night with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets at TD Garden. Danton Heinen, Jimmy Hayes, Brandon Carlo, Jake DeBrusk, Jakub Zboril and Anton Khudobin were among those in uniform for the B’s, with Hayes and Heinen both scoring goals in regulation.

The B’s will next play Wednesday when they host the Red Wings. Here are some takeaways from Monday night’s exhibition:

– Two top prospects collaborated on the Bruins’ second goal Monday, as Heinen capped his first (preseason) NHL game by redirecting a point shot from Carlo.

Heinen, who stands a good chance of helping fill the void created by Frank Vatrano’s injury, was utilized heavily with mixed results. Skating with Riley Nash and Seth Griffith, Heinen moved the puck well for the most part in 5-on-5 play and also saw time on the power play and penalty kill, but a blind pass in the second period led to a turnover that yielded a Blue Jackets goal...

Brady 'at a good place' as suspension nears end

In six days (Monday, October 3), Tom Brady can return to Gillette Stadium after serving his four-game suspension.

Over his four weeks away from the team, Brady has worked out with Wes Welker, been an honorary captain at a University of Michigan football game and most recently, visited Italy with wife Gisele Bundchen.

Brady feels ready to return after a month away.

“I’ve tried to be very positive about the experience and use it to prepare myself to get ready to play,” Brady told Jim Gray on Westwood One’s Monday Night Football pregame show. “I feel like I am at a good place with one week to go.”

While Brady has been away, the team has gone 3-0 in its first three games using two different quarterbacks in the process. With third-string rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett under center,...

Rex opens presser by impersonating Belichick

It’s clearly Patriots-Bills week as Rex Ryan has had press conferences two straight days and on both occasions Ryan has brought Bill Belichick up unprovoked.

After Sunday’s win over the Cardinals Ryan said he doesn’t care if Belichick plays quarterback on Sunday, his team is coming after him. Then, on Monday he opened his press conference trying to impersonate the Patriots coach.

“We’re gonna start with the injury report,” Ryan said to reporters at the open of his press conference. “You’ll get it on Wednesday. Simple as that. You’ll get it [when we] turn it in.”

Olynyk on Brady: 'An unbelievable individual'

WALTHAM – Kelly Olynyk is pretty psyched that Tom Brady is coming back to the NFL after next week. 

The Celtics center said one of the highlights of his summer of rehab from shoulder surgery was listening and talking to Tom Brady as the Patriots quarterback spent time on Long Island trying to lure Kevin Durant to Boston. 

“Brady’s an unbelievable individual,” Olynyk said during Monday’s media day. “He’s really, really smart. Just to be able to pick his brain for a half-hour, an hour, going down there was awesome, his philosophies, the way he lives his life. How professional he is, the way attacks every single game, every single moment and just kind of year-round, 24/7, it was awesome to see through his eyes, and hear it through his mouth, what he does and what it takes to be great.

“He’s really exemplified that at a lot of different stages so I’m excited to see him get back...
