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:

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.
