The Bruins were the only team from New England in action on Monday night, and they made it count. Having not beaten the Hurricanes once last season, the B's put an end to that streak with a big 5-3 win on the road.

The C's were off on Monday, and will begin life without Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season. They face the Kings on Wednesday.

And the Ravens and 49ers touch down in New Orleans, where Ray Lewis is asked about comments Wes Welker's wife made about him after the Patriots-Ravens game.

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.
