Horton, Paille, Peverley join Bruins skate

The Bruins informal skates took a much more Black and Goldfeel on Thursday as the team transported their practice setting to their normalpractice home, Ristuccia Arena. Nathan Horton, Daniel Paille, Aaron Johnson andRich Peverley all joined their teammates on the ice and had something muchcloser to a full practice with the Bs front office and coaching staff lookingon from the crows nest over the ice.

As reported by his agent Paul Krepelka, Horton has beenskating for weeks and is healthy and ready to go when the season begins on Jan.19 for the Bruins.

Burlington native and NHLfree agent Jay Pandolfo was skating with the Bs players and former Northeastern University and ECHLgoaltender Adam Geragosian continued to help out the team while they wait for AntonKhudobin to return from Kazakhstan.Khudobin, David Krejci and OHL superstar defenseman Dougie Hamilton are theonly players still missing from practice, and the Niagara IceDogs defensemanisnt expected to join them until actual training camp begins.

Red Sox score 7 in 7th to beat Rangers 9-4

BOSTON (AP)  Dustin Pedroia waved home the tiebreaking run on a wild pitch, then singled in two more during Boston's seven-run seventh inning on Wednesday night and the Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 9-4 for their third straight victory.

Chris Sale (5-2) struck out six, falling short in his attempt to become the first pitcher in baseball's modern era to strike out at least 10 batters in nine straight games in one season. He allowed three earned runs, six hits and a walk in 7 1/3 innings and received more runs of support in the seventh inning alone than in any previous game this season.

Sam Dyson (1-5) faced seven batters in relief of Martin Perez and gave up four hits, three walks - two intentional - and a wild pitch without retiring a batter. Mike Napoli homered for Texas, which has lost three of four to follow a 10-game winning streak.
