Bruins Storm Through Carolina

The Bruins put forth a complete effort last night in a 5-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes down in Raleigh, N.C. It looks like the Patriots will be in Detroit on Thanksgiving to play the Lions, and the Celtics host the Knicks tonight.

Bruins blow by Hurricanes - Stephen Harris calls this one a “dreadfully important” victory for the Bruins.

In win, Recchi also earned a tie - Fluto Shinzawa’s notebook has Mark Recchi tying Guy Lafleur for 22nd on the all-time career goal list last night.

Westmoreland is more than a story to me - Turns out that 10 years ago Joe Haggerty was diagnosed with the same “cavernous malformation” that Sox prospect Ryan Westmoreland had surgery for yesterday. A rare instance in which a media member can actually relate to what an athlete is going through.

Doubront joins line of Sox pitching prospects - Alex Speier has a peek at Felix Doubront, another in the long line of impressive Red Sox pitching prospects.

Red Sox remain calm under pressure - Halfway through spring training, John Tomase looks at what we’ve learned about the 2010 Red Sox.

For Johnsons, a moment to cherish - Daniel Barbarisi has Red Sox first base coach Ron Johnson, and his son Chris, a third baseman in the Astros organization, getting a rare moment to be on the same field.

Mayo hopes to follow Seau’s lead - Mike Reiss has Jerod Mayo looking to step up his leadership on the Patriots defense this season.

Pats name all-decade team - Mark Farinella with a pretty complete account of what went into selecting the Patriots 2000′s All-Decade team.

Celtics bench showing some signs of life - Mike Fine has the Boston reserves providing a spark in recent games.

Rivers flows with confidence - Julian Benbow has the Celtics coach using all his motivational tricks.

On Patriots Daily, Chris Warner has a very engaged Q&A With Wisconsin S Chris Maragos.

Also be sure to check out Chad Finn’s Nomah notes from the other night. Nice smackdown of Andy Gresh in there.

    First rate article by Finn. And – it goes without saying – Reiss.

    Does Chad know that Andy Gresh played football at URI?

    He’d be singing a different tune if he did.

    He’s jawjackin and not afraid to get after it.

    Sir Shrieks-Alot is a winner!

    Bravo – Mr. Finn

    I don’t know about anyone else but sports radio has been amusing for the past week listening to all of the tough guy hockey fans tell the Bruins how bad a beating they should lay down on Thursday night. What a bunch of morons.

      It usually starts with, “I’ve played my whole life – I’m 52 now and I skate at the MDC Rink on the Jamaicaway every sunday with Sully, Fitzy, Big Head, Little Head and Schmautzy.”

      I’ve been avoiding WEEI for a while now: how are the hosts handling the Bruins talk? It tends to distract them from mindlessly babbling about the Red Sox, Patriots, the evil that is Barrack Obama, and Michael Holley’s sweet fantasy team, but I’m interested to see how the hockey hating trolls that call in are dealing with this…
