Homepage, Sports - The 2007-2008 World Champion Boston Celtics finished up the preseason with a 6-2 record, looking solid so far. The Champs will face their Conference Final opponents as they raise the banner at the Garden. Lebron and the Cavaliers only managed a 3-5 preseason record (including a close loss to the C’s), but looked better as the games went on.
New players J.R. Giddens and Patrick O’Bryant are eager to figure out which roles they will be playing on the 08-09 team. Giddens will have to work through a hip injury, and O’Bryant would need to win a spot as the #3 center. The big three are returning healthy, Kendrick Perkins has recovered from his shoulder injury, and veteran Sam Cassell looks as if he will be ready to start the season. Aside from James Posey, nearly everyone involved in last season’s playoff run will be returning to this year’s team.
The Celtics tip off the season on Tuesday night at 8:00pm. Plenty of great Boston Celtics tickets are still available if you want to cheer on the C’s as they start the road to Green 18!

Sports - Almost halfway through their 2008 season the defending Super Bowl Champion, New York Giants are looking like a team intent on getting back to the big game. The Giants completed a comeback against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday to improve to 6-1. That record is good for first place in the NFC East. Good news for the Giants who will face two East rivals in the next two weeks in the Cowboys and the Eagles.
Down 14-9 in the fourth quarter the Giants relied on a little luck and Manning’s arm to complete a 12 point comeback. With a backup snapper in the game the Steelers snapped the ball into the endzone on a punt attempt resulting in a safety and possession for the Giants. Eli Manning led the Giants down the field completing the drive with a TD pass to Kevin Boss. The Giants held their 21-14 lead for the eventual win.
The Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday 11/2. Giants tickets still available for this and all 2008 games at Giants Stadium.
Homepage, Sports - The Boston Bruins finally wound up on the winning end of a tight game, beating the Atlanta Thrashers 5-4 on Saturday. Unlike most games this season for the Bruins, the team actually found themselves in a 2-0 hole after the first. The Thrashers jumped out to a lead with goals by Jason Williams and Mathieu Schneider.
Starting the second period down 2, the Bruins wasted no time knotting the game up with goals by Stephane Yelle and Milan Lucic 2 minutes apart. Lucic would go on to complete the game with a hat trick; his third goal the game winner in the final two minutes of play. The Boston Bruins were certainly glad to end the game in regulation. Boston already has three OT losses on the year.
The win puts the Bruins at 3-2-3 on the year. The Bruins will play the Oilers in Edmonton on Monday night. They return to the Garden on Saturday to host the Dallas Stars.

Sports - The Bruins seem to have no trouble getting on the board early in games. Its closing games out that seems to trouble them. Despite scoring first in 5 of their first 7 games the Boston Bruins have only managed a 2-2-3 record thus far. Last night at the TD Banknorth Garden it was Patrice Bergeron getting his 1st goal of the year that put the Bruins out in front 1-0. Bergeron who missed most of the 2007-2008 season was just thrilled to get that first goal out of the way but would have rather seen the Bruins come away with the victory.
The Bruins had a 2-0 advantage going into the 2nd period but couldn’t do much as the Toronto Maple Leafs scored four consecutive goals to snag the win. The Bruins will be hoping for better results on Saturday when they host the Atlanta Thrashers at the TD Banknorth Garden.
Bruins vs Thrashers on Saturday 10/25 is an Ace Ticket Discount game. Get Loge seats at or just above face value.

Sports - According to a Tuesday Globe and Mail report, NHL governors have been discussing the possibility of adding another NHL team to Toronto. The market does seem large enough, as the Maple Leafs already sell out the Air Canada Centre for every game. Entrepreneur Jim Balsillie, fresh off of aiding an ailing Nashville Predators team, has proposed the addition of an expansion team in Ontario. Much like the Staples Center hosts the Lakers and Clippers of the NBA, the new team would also share Air Canada Center with the Leafs. Balsillie’s other options include placing a team in Southern Ontario locations such as Hamilton, and relocating the Nashville Predators instead of creating a new expansion team.
No plans have been finalized.

The Bruins have played good hockey to open the season. Their record stands at 2-1-3. They’re hoping to push some of those close OT losses into wins. Their record could just as easily be 5-1 at this point. The Bruins have been getting great production out of Savard, Bergeron and Kessel.
