Miller won't have restrictions on pitching going forth

BOSTON Left-hander Andrew Miller will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket. But going forward, he will be used as any other pitcher.

Andrew Miller is off of the designated pitcher of the day and hes a member of the team. Were going to use him as needed. Up until today he had always had a scheduled performance day and we would dictate what it was 15 pitches today, 30 pitches, start an inning, dont start an inning. Now were going to have Pawtucket manager Arnie Beyeler just use him as needed and see how he progresses.

Miller, though, has been inconsistent in his outings, struggling with command.Thursday against Syracuse, he allowed four walks and a hit with three strikeouts in 1 13 innings. In one-third of an inning April 15 against Buffalo he gave up four runs on a hit and three walks with a strikeout.

It is concerning and I think itll all work out, Valentine said.

Rasheed Wallace shows KG his amazing Doc Rivers impression

By Dane Carbaugh, NBCSports.com Pro Basketball Talk

Rasheed Wallace is a man of many talents. Playing basketball. Getting ejected. Helping the disenfranchised. Throwing towels. He’s a Renaissance man, really.

Oh, and apparently he does a spot-on Doc Rivers impersonation.

During a segment on Kevin Garnett’s “Area 21” TV show, Wallace not only brought attention to the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, but was able to emulate the Los Angeles Clippers coach strikingly well. It came while Wallace was breaking down Rivers recent explosion and ejection from a game against the Brooklyn Nets, an outburst for which he was fined $15,000.

From the Area 21 Twitter page:

Friday, Dec. 2: Toews vs. Matthews

Here are all the links from around the hockey world and what I’m reading, while everybody in New England is in mourning over the latest Gronk booboo. 

*A pretty neat sharpshooting video with Jonathan Toews and that young whippersnapper Auston Matthews squaring off against each other. 

*Craig Custance looks a little deeper into the situation with the Florida Panthers and how things are stabilizing after the rough firing of Gerard Gallant last week. 

*Now. let’s get to the real important stuff: the San Jose Sharks website has put together their Movember rankings for the player’s mustaches. 

*FOH (Friend of Haggs) Bruce Garrioch says that the plans for an outdoor game in Ottawa are again back on the NHL’s agenda. 

*Erik Erlendsson has put together a “Lightning Insider” website where you can find all the latest news about the Tampa Bay franchise. Check it out. 

*As guys such as Anton Khudobin prove when they’re thrust into the starting spot, backup goalies matter in today’s NHL. 

*For something completely different: a mash-up of Kylo Ren and “Girls” from the mad mind of Adam Driver is exactly just that.
