The Bruins continued their struggles, blowing a 2-0 lead by allow three straight unanswered goals by the Los Angeles Kings last night, and falling at the Garden, 3-2.

We’re going to flip you over to for the coverage this morning.

Elsewhere, we’re going to go quick-links style this morning, but there are plenty of interesting items out there…

Bill Belichick made his first media appearance since the Matt Cassel trade yesterday, appearing on WEEI’s Big Show. Chad Finn and Christopher Price have recaps of the interview.  You can also listen to the Audio On Demand at WEEI’s website.

Speaking of Chad Finn, Dan Lamothe of Red Sox Monster talked with the blogger about his recent column ripping WEEI. Finn discusses the fallout from the column and also talks about his job a little. I find it amazing that sports editor Joe Sullivan had no idea that Finn had been blogging on his own after joining the Globe as a copy editor.

The last three weeks in the Metro, I did a series previewing the Red Sox media coverage for 2009. The segments were broken down into Television and Radio, Newspaper Coverage and Radio and Internet.

In related Red Sox media coverage news, Nancy Marrapese-Burrell has a look in the Globe today about a new Red Sox show preparing to debut on opening day on NESN. The Boston Globe Red Sox Game Day Live, besides its rediculously long name, shows that the Globe and NESN are still very much partners when it comes to covering the Red Sox.

With the NCAA tournament in full swing, Bill Doyle chats with CBS analyst Len Elmore about Boston College’s seeding, and the tournament in general. Dan Shaughnessy says that we have to embrace BC in the tournament, since they’re all we’ve got. Bob Ryan has gotten over Rick Pitino’s failure to have a farewell press conference in Boston, and looks at the coach’s emphasis on T-E-A-M, which has his Louisville squad one of the tourney favorites.

Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen made the trip to San Antonio with the Celtics, but it is still unclear whether they will play tonight or not. Check the coverage and internet chatter on the team over at

Scott Benson cranks out the Patriots Draft Needs, Part 3 over on Patriots Daily. Yesterday, Chris Warner continued his series of potential draftee interviews with a Q&A with South Carolina middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley. Also in the Metro, I tried to track the many comings and goings this offseason over in Foxboro.

Shalise Manza Young feels that adding Julius Peppers to the Patriots defense would cause opposing offenses nightmares. Karen Guregian notes that the Patriots have not made any contact with Peppers’ agent, and based on Belichick’s comments on WEEI yesterday, he would prefer to deal with the team anyway. Christopher L. Gasper notes that Belichick never once said that his team was not interested in obtaining Peppers.
