The Latest Sports News

 

On Friday morning, Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced that the team has signed Dartmouth College forward Matt Lindland to an entry-level deal that will sink for the 2013-14 season. Lindblad, who just completed his junior year with the Big Storm, posted impressive colliegate numbers racking up 80 points (29 goals 51 assists) in 89 career games. He is considered to be a good playmaking forward with some scoring ability but will need to gain some minor league experience before possibly making an impact in Boston.  Currently, the Bruins have one more roster spot open as they have 49 contracts and with Lindblad's not setting in until next fall, it gives Chiarelli the option to bring over Carl Soderberg once his team's playoffs are over.  The 6'1 200 lbs Lindblad finished second on his team in scoring and could give Providence some scoring with the AHL playoffs in sight. He will have to sign an ATO (Amateur Try Out) with the P-Bruins, so his contract won't be incorperatedinto this season since it's almost over. With Lindblad and defenseman Chris Casto both recently signed, these two moves could bode for the Boston if they ever need future assets if injuries happen. Both could impress and down the line possibly make an impact on this Bruins team.

Moves like Jagr: Bruins, Jagr down Devils 1-0

Written by

BOSTON—Thursday’s Bruins-Devils game had many interesting subplots to it. For one, the Devils and  veteran netminder Martin Brodeur came to town, while Tuukka Rask,  still relatively new to the role of starting goaltender played host.  Boston was the victor in the previous meeting between the two clubs back on January 29th, snagging a 2-1 victory, in front of the Garden faithful.  Now, déjà vu reared its head again as new Bruin Jaromir Jagr made his debut in the Black and Gold sweater.

The first period yielded no goals; however that does not mean that the action on the ice was dull. Particularly for Rask, it was the polar opposite of dull as he stopped 17 Devils shots to the Bruins’ six. It was not until the second period that things really began to get going.  Jaromir Jagr put home the game’s only tally, his 15th of the season courtesy of Brad Marchand and Zdeno Chara. Jagr dished it to Marchand on the rush and Marchand, skating in from the left side, passed to Jagr, who found some room in open ice. The goal came 1:20 into the frame and gave Boston a 1-0 advantage. The score would stay the same when the buzzer rang to end the period, and Boston also led in the shot department 13-11.

The third period also yielded no tallies, and once again, Rask played a key role in securing a Black and Gold victory. New Jersey outshot Boston 12-7, but he was up to the task, turning them all away. The final buzzer sounded and that would be all, in what was a battle of the ‘tenders. Rask received the win, stopping 40 total shots and improving to 16-5-4 on the season. In addition, he recorded this third shutout in this marathon year. The other two came on March 9 (against the Flyers) and February 2 (against the always-tough Toronto Maple Leafs). Meanwhile Brodeur took the loss, dropping to 10-4-6 on the year.

Boston’s next game will be against the rival Montreal Canadiens tomorrow at 7PM. New Jersey will play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow night at 7PM as well. In a game which was highlighted by Jagr’s solid debut and the outstanding play of Rask, the Bruins had a lot to be proud of.

Game Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics

Written by

 

Cleveland Cavaliers (22-52, 9-28 Away) @ Boston Celtics (39-36, 26-11 Home)

TD Garden, 7:30 PM EST

Officials: Michael Smith, Karl Lane, Mark Lindsay

Line: Boston -6.5, Over/Under = 201.5

Get Tickets to Tonight’s Game at the TD Garden

 

The Boston Celtics host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. Boston is looking for their third win in four game against the Cavaliers this season. The last game came on March 27th in Cleveland and Jeff Green scored the game-winner as time expired for his second game-winning basket this season.

 
PROBABLE STARTERS

 

Cleveland Cavaliers

PG: Kyrie Irving

SG: Wayne Ellington

SF: Alonzo Gee

PF: Tristan Thompson

C: Tyler Zeller

 

Boston Celtics

PG: Avery Bradley

SG: Paul Pierce

SF: Jeff Green

PF: Brandon Bass

PF: Chris Wilcox

 
INJURIES

C.J. Miles, Day-to-Day

Paul Pierce, Day-to-Day

Kevin Garnett, OUT

 
WHAT TO WATCH FOR

Jeff Green has gotten hot since he cracked the starting lineup. He’s started seven straight games in place of an injured Kevin Garnett. He’s averaging 21.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG, and 3.7 APG  over that span.

"I don't try to take over games. We have 'the Truth,'" said Green, calling Pierce by his nickname. "We feed off each other. If it's in my hands, I try to make a play. If it's in his hands, he'll try to make a play. We're playing off each other." --- via ESPN

Last time out, Green led the Celtics with 34 points in 98-93 win over Detroit at home.

Paul Pierce is listed as Day-to-Day and if he and Garnett are out, that will put the pressure on Green to score 30+ points again tonight.

With Garnett sidelined, Boston has allowed 102. 86 PPG in their last seven games.

Cleveland might have as many key injuries as Boston. They’ve been without their second best player for most of the season, Anderson Varejao, and Dion Waiters, who was second on the team in scoring, has been out for seven games in a row.

 
NOTES

The Cavaliers have lost 10 games in a row. Their longest such streak since 2010-2011.

Kyrie Irving is averaging 26.0 points in five career meetings against the Celtics, tied for his second-highest mark against any opponent. --- via ESPN

The Celtics are just 2.5 games ahead of Milwaukee for the 7-seed.

 
PREDICTION

With Celtics on the verge of clinching the 7-seed in the East, I expect Pierce to suit up, but only play limited minutes if the Celtics really need him. Jeff Green has shown the aggression everyone has been waiting for since being inserted into the starting lineup and I see that trend continuing with another 25+ point performance tonight. If Boston gets a big game from Jason Terry, they’ll win at home handedly. If not, Kyrie Irving will take over late.

Boston Celtics 96, Cleveland Cavaliers 89

Expect multiple check-ins from TD Garden as the CLNS Personalities are in-town for the Boston Sports Blogapalooza event.

As always, the guys will be taking your calls and hanging out in the CelticsBlog chat-room throughout the 120 minute broadcast.

According to multiple sources today, Kevin Garnett will not play in Friday night's game vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Rick Murphy of the Boston Herald, Garnett partook in a flag ceremony today and may practice Saturday and is aiming for a return to action on Sunday.

Doc Rivers commented on Garnett after today's practice:

“I think he’ll be back, maybe as early as Sunday, but we still don’t know that,” said Rivers. “He’s still doing all of the running, he’ll do some court stuff without the team, and he’ll probably take part in shootaround (today), but I won’t play him (tonight against Cleveland). The ankle feels good.”

With just 6 games remaining until the playoffs, the Big Ticket could not come back soon enough. Though the Celtics seem to be pulling things together, behind the strong play of Jeff Green and consistent, all-around basketball from Paul Pierce, their is truth [no pun intended] behind the philosphy that the team needs to build chemistry going into the playoffs.

Paul Pierce also missed Friday's practice after tweeking his ankle in Wednesday night's game.

“I’m a little sore,” Pierce said. “We’ll see how it feels. If we played today I probably wouldn’t be able to go, unless it was a playoff game. The key right now is for all of us to get healthy.

Local Brewery Pays Tribute To Red Auerbach

Written by

In the past few years, I have been able to expand my beer horizons beyond the six-pack cans of Bud Light sitting around a fire or the bottle of Corona while soaking up the sun on the beach, not to take anything away from those beers. My wife calls me a "beer snob". Craft beer has become to hot trend in the beverage industry more recently and one local writer can easily be classified as even more of a beer snob than me. 

  Gary Dzen of The Boston Globe (@GlobeGaryDzen), for those who don't know, doesn't only cover the Boston Celtics for the Globe and Boston.com, but also writes about craft beer in a blog called "99 Bottles" which delves inside the world of craft beer. If you have any interest in this subject, I suggest you read it and follow Gary on Twitter.
