Bergeron missing from practice


Bergeron missing from practice

WILMINGTON, Mass. Sound the alarm bells and ring the warning horns because Patrice Bergeron isnt on the Ristuccia Arena practice ice on Tuesday morning.

Well, not really.

Bergeron is missing from the Bruins practice prior to Wednesday nights Game 7, but is most likely sitting out for a maintenance day while he rests whatever has been ailing him since the second period of Game 5 in Boston. Bergeron told 98.5 The Sports Hub Tuesday morning that he will be playing in Game 7.

Joe Corvo was on the practice ice after missing Game 6 with a knee issue after taking a Mike Green shot off the inside of his leg, but it appeared that Mike Mottau might be getting the call for Game 7.

Corvo is skating with Andrew Bodnarchuk on the extra defensemen pairing, and Greg Zanon is paired with Mottau as they were while winning Game 6 in Washington DC.

Here are the lines at Bs practice:



Sale hurls five shutout innings, Sandoval has two hits as Sox romp, 7-2

Red Sox-Twins box score

Sale allowed six hits, with one walk and six strikeouts, in his 91-pitch outing. Manager John Farrell had told reporters before the game that Sale was scheduled to throw between 95 and 100 pitches. He has 26 strikeouts and 2 walks in 21 spring-training innings.

Sandoval lifted his exhibition average to .370 with a 2-for-3 performance, which included a double.

The Red Sox also got home runs from Christian Vazquez, Andrew Benintendi and Steve Selsky as they rallied from a 1-0 deficit with three runs in the seventh inning and four in the eighth.

Bradley returns to Celtics' lineup for Sunday's game vs. Heat

Bradley returns to Celtics' lineup for Sunday's game vs. Heat

BOSTON -- Avery Bradley, whose flu-like symptoms landed him in the hospital and forced him to miss Friday’s game against Phoenix, tells that he will play tonight.
“I didn’t get [out of the hospital] until [Saturday] evening,” Bradley told “My stomach still hurts a little bit, but I’m all right. I’ll be good.”
The importance of Bradley to this team cannot be overstated.
His ability to make a major impact both as a scorer and an elite defender separates him from not only his teammates but from most guards in the NBA.
However, his health has been a season-long issue in some form or another, which can be seen in the fact that he has missed 24 games via injury or illness -- more than any other player on the Celtics roster.
When he has played, Bradley has delivered on several fronts.
He’s averaging 16.9 points per game while averaging 6.2 rebounds per game - both career highs -- which rank second and third, respectively, on the Celtics roster this season.
