Five from the third


Five from the third

RALEIGH, N.C. Here are five thoughts from the third period with the Bruins falling to the Hurricanes by a 4-2 score at the end of the first 60 minutes at the RBC Center.

1) Bruins just not bringing their A game tonight in Carolina. Its as simple as that.

2) Sixteen goals for Milan Lucic at the midpoint of the season. For a guy that people wrote off last years 30-goal season because of five empty-netters it appears hes proving himself as a legit 30-goal scorer in the league.

3) What did I tell you about the hits stat? Bruins were never in this game physically against the Hurricanes.

4) Two long point shots allowed by Tim Thomas in the third period is very unlike the Bs goaltender. Had two strong periods, but couldnt follow it up in the final 20 minutes where Boston is usually a good closer.

5) Not often you see the Bruins lose a third period, but they did tonight.

Young, Vazquez homer for Red Sox in 9-2 win over Twins

BOSTON - Chris Young hit a three-run homer and Christian Vazquez homered for the first time in more than a year as the Boston Red Sox routed the Minnesota Twins 9-2 on Tuesday night in a game delayed twice by stormy weather.

Drew Pomeranz (7-4) pitched five innings, three after a 1 hour, 16 minute delay between the second and third as a thunderstorm slowly passed over Fenway Park. Despite the interruption, Pomeranz held the Twins to one unearned run and four hits, struck out seven and didn't walk a batter.

Dustin Pedroia had three hits and scored twice and Xander Bogaerts had two hits and scored twice for the Red Sox as they won consecutive games for the first time in nearly two weeks.

The two rain delays totaled 2:06.
