The Bruins are very disappointed by the racist comments that were made following the game last night. These classless, ignorant views are in no way a reflection of anyone associated with the Bruins organization.
Meanwhile, BostInno talks to the school department in Rhode Island which has at least one student who allegedly posted one of those comments.
OK, it's because the game has been called on account of rain, but still ...
Beat Tampa Bay 12-2, but Ellsbury could be out six to eight weeks - and maybe longer.

Yes, it's time for the Globe metro columnist's annual fantasy-sportswriter camp, and this year, the focus is on how much he hates the 2012 Sox.
Guess I picked the wrong game to start watching the Red Sox.
Fenway Park turns 100 this year. Browse some photos from back in the day.
Colin Steele shows us what the Garden looks like without banners, thanks to the NCAA, which both required the Bruins and Celtics banners be taken out for their March Madness games and put their own parquet on the floor, because God forbid college players get the chance to say they've been on the most famous floor in basketball.
Boston Police report arresting the pair yesterday.
Cherie Devotie, 24, of New York, and Equcon Milling, 32, of New Jersey, were arrested after officers on a walking beat:
Observed both suspects in possession of multiple tickets. Officers confiscated the tickets after confirming with Garden officials that the tickets were counterfeit.
Police said fans should only buy tickets from official outlets, such as the Garden itself or Ticketmaster (Ed. question: So Stub Hub and Ace are right out, huh?), if they wish to avoid being turned away at the door for having bogus ducats.
A player on the BC football team was arraigned today on charges he used his cell phone to record the sounds of his roommate and a woman having sex, then played it for others; all very illegal under Massachusetts law. Channel 5 reports.
Temple Street in West Roxbury today once again hosted the annual Shamrock Shootout, which has grown from a small neighborhood block party to an event large enough to feature a sitting US senator dropping the ceremonial first puck (well, yellow plastic ball, actually).
The Boston Fire Department reports Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask stopped by Engine 7 and Ladder 17 on Columbus Avenue today to talk about the Muscular Dystrophy Association and get a tour.

The move comes on the heels of the second arrest in three months of a BU hockey player for alleged sexual assaults, most recently on a rape charge. In a letter to students, BU President Robert Brown writes:
The charges in these cases understandably lead to questions about whether the hockey team's culture and climate have contributed in some way to the actions of the two individuals. The University must address these questions and, if deficiencies are identified, make necessary changes.

We get our marching orders from the media: We absolve Lester and continue to give Beckett the side eyeBy adamg - 2/20/12 - 2:48 pm
Both pitchers apologized yesterday for last September. Allan at Joy of Sox provides the round up to show that the media has decided whom we should pat on the head and murmur "there, there" to and who should be banished to that ratty old couch in the basement until he apologizes some more:
The Globe's Nick Cafardo began his article by saying "We're not here to rate the mea culpas of Red Sox pitchers Jon Lester and Josh Beckett yesterday at JetBlue Park." Then he spent most of his time rating the mea culpas of Red Sox pitchers Jon Lester and Josh Beckett yesterday at JetBlue Park.
Our resident ubercrank declares he won't be happy until he can personally apply a paddle to the behinds of every single returning Red Sox player, and so buries the news about the return of Charles Steinberg.
