Thomas appears in 14th straight game

SAN JOSE, Calif. The Bruins have fallen into a groove over the last two games, so theres no reason to mess with success. Tim Thomas will be playing in his 14th straight game and endeavoring for his third straight win while Antti Niemi will be playing in his 13th straight game for San Jose.

Joe Corvo will also be a healthy scratch for the third straight game as the Bruins have tightened things up defensively with No. 14 watching from the press box. The Bruins have allowed only two goals and averaged only 21 shots allowed per game in the two games without Corvo among the defenseman corps.

The lineup should be exactly the same as the two victories over the Flyers and Maple Leafs. Here is the projected lineup:

Lucic-Krejci-Caron
Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin
Rolston-Kelly-Pouliot
Paille-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Seidenberg
Ference-Boychuk
Zanon-McQuaid

Femi's goal gives Revolution 2-1 win over Sounders

It's the Femi show in New England these days. 

The New England Revolution played out 2-1 winners against the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium thanks to a late goal by rookie substitute Femi Hollinger-Janzen. The goal was his second in the Revs' past three games.

With the match knotted at one in the 80th minute, Femi, who entered the game four minutes earlier, received a toe poke pass from Lee Nguyen about 20 yards from goal. The rookie nearly fell over when taking his first touch, but regained his balance before blasting a low strike through traffic inside Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei's left post.

Seattle, missing Clint Dempsey and Nelson Valdez to international duty, jumped out to an early lead in the seventh minute thanks to homegrown product Aaron Kovar. Kovar, starting for the third time in the past four games, netted his first professional goal when he corralled a poor punch from Revs keeper Bobby Shuttleworth at the top of the box, crossed up a defender as he brought the ball down to his right foot, and slotted home inside the left post.

The Revolution equalized in the 24th minute thanks to a Lee Nguyen penalty.
