Julien on McQuaid: 'His status hasnt changed'

ARLINGTON, VA The Bruins braved another day in the playoffs without Nathan Horton or Adam McQuaid on Wednesday while being unfairly labeled as headhunters by the Washington cognoscenti.
Its a little ironic that the only player for either the Bruins or Capitals currently missing from action because of rough stuff between the two teams is McQuaid, who hasnt been the same since Jason Chimera charged him from behind in late March.
McQuaid has missed seven of the last eight games since the Chimera hit, and lasted slightly more than a period against the Ottawa Senators before being forced to leave the game when he wasnt feeling right.
The Bruins are still terming the injury as an upper-body issue that stemmed from an eye laceration that swelled his eye shut immediately after the collision took place.
Hes still the same, said Claude Julien. His status hasnt changed.
McQuaid still hasnt jumped out on the ice since leaving the early April game against the Senators, and doesnt appear to be possible to return for the rest of the first round against the Capitals at this point.
Joe Corvo and Greg Zanon have filled in as the bottom defensemen pairing with McQuaid out of the lineup, and it appears that will be same twosome moving forward for the Black and Gold.

NFL owners release statements on Trump comments


NFL owners release statements on Trump comments

President Donald Trump's comments about NFL players and his tweeted dis-invite of the Warriors led to some prominent athletes to speak out. Now NFL franchises and their owners are weighing in.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday night, Trump said NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he encouraged NFL fans to walk out of games in protest. 

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ’Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,” Trump told the rally. 

He also lamented that football has become less violent.

“They’re ruining the game,” he complained.

Revs beat Toronto FC 2-1, deny Shield-clinching opportunity

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara scored late goals and the New England Revolution, with a 2-1 win, denied Toronto FC an opportunity to clinch the Supporters' Shield on Saturday.

Kamara scored the go-ahead goal in the 87th minute with a header off Nguyen's cross. The Revs (11-4-5) avoided playoff elimination and extended their undefeated streak at home against Toronto FC (18-5-8) to six games. Toronto has three matches remaining to clinch the Shield with a magic number of three points.

Nguyen opened the scoring for New England in the 82nd minute with his 50th career goal, taking Chris Tierney's lead pass from midfield and finishing through a defensive deflection.

Toronto FC's Nicolas Hasler answered two minutes later with a right-footed volley of Michael Bradley's diagonal cross.

Forwards Sebastian Giovinco and Jozy Altidore missed the match for Toronto FC, both due to lower body tightness.
