BOSTON -- The Bruins pelted Carey Price with 51 shots. An overtime bid by Bostons Carl Soderberg slid across the crease behind the goalie but didnt go in. The team with the NHLs best regular-season record had plenty of chances. So coach Claude Julien says the Bruins are feeling positive after the Montreal Canadiens 4-3, double-overtime victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Thursday night. "Of course it is," he said Friday. "There was no panic after the game. It was only Game 1 and its a long series." And Canadiens coach Michel Therrien didnt sound overconfident going into Game 2 on Saturday. "The Bruins," he said, "were the best team in the league all season long and they had a good first round and they played a solid game (Thursday)." But after having nine days off after Montreals sweep of Tampa Bay, Therrien thinks his team can improve. Price was outstanding, but the Canadiens know they cant let 51 shots get through to him again. "He stole that game for us," forward Brian Gionta said. The Bruins helped. Sloppy play led to 13 takeaways by Montreal, while Boston had just three. The Bruins also allowed two goals on the three power plays after the Canadiens had just two in 13 opportunities in the four games against the Lightning. The Bruins, after five days off, started slowly and trailed 2-0 after the second period on goals by P.K. Subban on a power play and Rene Bourque. Boston tied it in the first seven minutes of the third on goals by Reilly Smith and Torey Krug. "We had some great chances there in the second half of the second. It just took us a while to get our game going," Julien said. "I thought from midway through the second period on, thats where we were at our best." Francis Bouillon gave Montreal the lead midway through the third period before Johnny Boychuk tied it with 1:58 left in regulation. The Bruins took 14 shots in the first overtime then lost on Subbans power-play goal 4:17 into the second overtime. "We need to do a better job boxing out, blocking shots, and disturbing their entries" on power plays, Boston centre Patrice Bergeron said, "doing a better job on our forecheck. Thats all." But Bergeron, one of the NHLs top faceoff players, lost the draw and Subban scored just seven seconds after a penalty to Bostons Matt Bartkowski. Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara didnt have enough time to get in front of Subbans blast from the blue line. "Its tough for him to come out and block that shot," Subban said. "I think he did all he could to get in my lane, but by the time he already did, I had already let it go." So now the Bruins are in the same spot where they were after Game 1 of the opening round. They lost 1-0 to Detroit then won the next four games to advance. Three years ago, they lost the first two games of the first round at home against Montreal then won it in seven games and went on to capture the Stanley Cup. "I dont think we can even think about winning the series," Subban said. "When there is success you have to take it and get better." The Bruins had plenty of success putting shots on Price. Boychuk had six and Bartkowski, David Krejci and Smith had five each. "Those games are going to happen. You just hope they dont happen in the playoffs," Smith said. "They have a good goaltender on the other side, and its something we really have to focus on, making life a little bit more difficult on him." After a close game in which they outplayed the Canadiens in several aspects, the Bruins expect to show resiliency, just as they did after falling behind 2-0 and 3-2 on Thursday. "We didnt get the first one," Boston right wing Jarome Iginla said, "but, at the same time, we did a lot of things that we feel are a part of our game and were effective, and we stay with that." But the Canadiens wont be satisfied with gaining a split in Boston. "The Bruins played a really solid game," Therrien said. "The thing I know and I believe is that our team is going to be better next game." Blank Jersey .

Stefan Radu Jersey . -- Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice tweeted an apparent goodbye after a report about his pending release.San Diegos offence keeps humming, the Texans put up numbers in a crushing home loss, the Broncos are off the charts and the Jets have one of the most productive runners in the game. All this and more in Scott Cullens 50 Points on NFL Week Four. 1. Chargers QB Philip Rivers (35-for-42, 401 YDS, 3 TD, 1 INT) continued his stellar start. Through four weeks, hes averaging 299.8 passing yards per game, the best of his career. His previous high was 294.4 in 2010. 2. Lions RB Reggie Bush (173 YDS, 1 TD, 22 touches) returned to the lineup with another huge game. He has averaged 144.3 yards per game in the three games that hes played this season. His previous career-high? 92.1 per game in 2011. 3. Texans RB Arian Foster (171 YDS, 1 TD, 33 touches) broke through with his most productive game of the year. Backup Ben Tate had a season-low eight touches (45 YDS), but fumbled once. 4. Turns out Chargers TE Antonio Gates (10 REC, 136 YDS, 1 TD, 10 targets) is far from finished. The 33-year-old ranks leads tight ends (with Jimmy Graham six yards behind and playing Monday night) with 364 yards through the first four games. Just like Rivers, thats a career-high per-game average (91.0) for Gates; his previous best was 78.2 in 2010. 5. Broncos QB Peyton Manning (28-for-34, 327 YDS, 4 TD) continues to shred the league. Hes completed a career-high 75.0% of his passes, is averaging a career-high 367.5 passing yards per game and has thrown 16 touchdown passes, putting him on pace for 64 in a 16-game season. 6. As Manning goes, so to go WR Demaryius Thomas (9 REC, 86 YDS, 2 TD, 10 targets), WR Wes Welker (7 REC, 76 YDS, 2 TD, 9 targets), WR Eric Decker (5 REC, 88 YDS, 7 targets) and TE Julius Thomas (4 REC, 43 YDS, 4 targets), though Julius Thomas isnt as accomplished as the wideouts. 7. Jets RB Bilal Powell (108 YDS, 17 touches) continues to deliver. He now ranks seventh with 400 yards from scrimmage. 8. Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (140 YDS, 2 TD, 23 carries) had his best game of the season against Pittsburgh. Hes second in the league with 421 rushing yards and first with five rushing touchdowns. 9. WR Larry Fitzgerald (6 REC, 68 YDS, 1 TD, 7 targets) may have been limited, but was not exactly shut down by Darrelle Revis who, to his credit, did have an interception. WR Michael Floyd (5 REC, 87 YDS, 10 targets) stepped up for the Cardinals and ranks 34th in the league with 240 yards receiving. 10. Texans QB Matt Schaub (31-for-49, 355 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT) was great in the first half against Seattle and was going fine until making an incredibly ill-advised throw that Seahawks CB Richard Sherman returned for the tying touchdown in the fourth quarter. Questionable for most of the week, WR Andre Johnson (9 REC, 110 YDS, 12 targets) led the Texans receiving corps. 11. Browns QB Brian Hoyer (25-for-38, 269 YDS, 2 TD) delivered another win for Cleveland, connecting primarily with TE Jordan Cameron (10 REC, 91 YDS, 1 TD, 12 targets) and WR Josh Gordon (4 REC, 71 YDS, 9 targets). 12. Chiefs QB Alex Smith (24-for-41, 288 YDS, 3 TD, 2 INT) is getting turned loose in the Kansas City offence. Hes averaging a career-high 239.3 passing yards per game and has thrown seven touchdowns in four games. He threw 13 touchdowns in 10 games with San Francisco last season. 13. Cowboys QB Tony Romo (27-for-37, 244 YDS, 2 TD) is dinking and dunking more than ever. His 6.6 yards per attempt is the lowest of his career. His previous low was 7.5 yards per attempt in 2010, but hes also thrown just one interception in 152 attempts, after throwing 19 in 648 attempts (one every 34.1 attempts) last season. 14. Patriots QB Tom Brady (20-for-31, 316 YDS, 2 TD) had a fine game against Atlantas inexperienced secondary. Though he had some shaky drops, WR Kenbrell Thompkins (6 REC, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 11 targets) utlimately had a productive game, as did Julian Edelman (7 REC, 118 YDS, 9 targets). 15. Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles (127 YDS, 1 TD, 23 touches) kept his train a rolling. He was Kansas Citys most-targeted receiver, with 11, while WR Donnie Avery (2 REC, 23 YDS) was second with 10 targets. 16. Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (143 YDS, 1 TD, 1 fumble, 20 touches) was crucial to the Seattle comeback in Houston. He ranks eighth with 399 yards from scrimmage through four weeks. 17. As much as Giants QB Eli Manning (18-for-37, 214 YDS, 1 TD, 1 INT, 2 fumbles) continues to struggle, WR Victor Cruz (10 REC, 164 YDS, 1 TD, 16 targets) racked up the yardage against the Chiefs, who were missing injured CB Brandon Flowers. 18. Titans QB Jake Locker (18-for-24, 189 YDS, 3 TD) is expected to miss 4-8 weeks with a hip injury suffered against the Jets; Titans WR Nate Washington (4 REC, 105 YDS, 2 TD, 8 targets) keeps producing, but will find it more challenging with Ryan Fitzpatrick directing the offence. 19. Titans RB Chris Johnson (31 YDS, 17 touches) struggled against the Jets, and with the game out of reach, Jackie Battle (42 YDS, 11 carries) ended up with more yardage on the ground. With the quarterback situation changing, the Titans will need Johnson to handle being the offensive focus even more. 20. Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (5 REC, 107 YDS, 1 TD, 11 targets), TE Martellus Bennett (8 REC, 90 YDS, 12 targets) and WR Brandon Marshall (7 REC, 79 YDS, 14 targets) had productive games, but four turnovers from QB Jay Cutler (27-for-47 yards, 317 YDS, 2 TD, 3 INT, 1 fumble) made sure those yards came in a losing effort. 21. Falcons QB Matt Ryan (34-for-54, 421 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT) put up big numbers in a losing effort. Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers (88 YDS, 13 touches); TE Tony Gonzalez (12 REC, 149 YDS, 2 TD, 14 targets) and WR Julio Jones (6 REC, 108 YDS, 13 targets) all had relatively strong games, though Jones had a difficult time getting free from Patriots CB Aqib Talib. 22. Browns CB Joe Haden effectively shut down Bengals WR A.J. Green (7 REC, 51 YDS, 15 targets). Just a little something to consider for Thursdays game against Stevie Johnson (or Robert Woods) and the Bills. 23. Bills WR Stevie Johnson (1 REC, -1 YDS, 6 targets) was a non-factor against the Ravens, but rookie WR Robert Woods (4 REC, 80 YDS, 1 TD, 8 targets) was more of a factor and played more snaps than any other Bills receiver. 24. With a mediocre passing game against Baltimore, the Bills still won because their runners got the job done (and the turnovers, but bear with me). RB Fred Jackson (87 YDS, 1 TD, 16 carries) and RB C.J. Spiller (77 YDS, 23 carries) were big factors for Buffalo, as they should be, yet both suffered injuries in thee game.dddddddddddd. Jackson suffered a sprained MCL, yet expects to play Thursday night, while Spiller suffered an ankle injury. If, for some reason, they cant play, Tashard Choice is next in line for the Bills. 25. Steelers rookie RB LeVeon Bell (84 YDS, 2 TD, 20 touches) started and, while he didnt make much of a difference for the Steelers, hes a more productive back than any of the veterans that Pittsburgh had rolled out in the first three weeks. 26. Colts WR Reggie Wayne (5 REC, 100 YDS, 1 TD, 11 targets) and TE Coby Fleener (5 REC, 77 YDS, 1 TD, 7 targets) were the leaders against Jacksonville. With Dwayne Allen out, Fleener could become a viable fantasy starter. 27. The Broncos backfield continued to share the load. RB Knowshon Moreno (91 YDS, 1 TD, 13 touches) was the leaders, ahead of Ronnie Hillman (57 YDS, 13 touches) and Montee Ball (24 YDS, 8 carries). 28. Ravens RB Ray Rice (17 YDS, 5 carries) returned to the lineup...barely. Tough to take that ball out of the quarterbacks hands when hes throwing picks all day, right? 29. Washington RB Alfred Morris (71 YDS, 16 carries) suffered a rib injury, that he doesnt expect to keep him out, but Roy Helu (84 YDS, 15 touches) saw some regular action in the Washington backfield as a result. 30. Raiders RB Darren McFadden (29 YDS, 5 carries) suffered a hamstring injury against Washington and with Marcel Reese also hurt, Rashad Jennings (116 YDS, 23 touches) took advantage of his opportunity. 31. Bengals RB Giovani Bernard (75 YDS, 16 touches) continues to pull away from BenJarvus Green-Ellis (13 yards, 6 carries) in the Cincinnati backfield. 32. Patriots RB Stevan Ridley (79 YDS, 13 touches) had his most productive game of the season, which isnt saying much. LeGarrette Blount (64 YDS, 9 carries) had another nice effort off the bench. 33. Steelers WR Jerricho Cotchery (5 REC, 103 YDS, 1 TD, 6 targets) had 33 catches in 26 games over the past two seasons, but already has 15 catches for 248 yards and a couple touchdowns this season. 34. The San Diego backfield still gives more action to RB Ryan Mathews (103 YDS, 23 touches), but RB Danny Woodhead (86 YDS, 2 TD, 10 touches) was more productive. 35. Vikings QB Matt Cassel (16-for-25, 248 YDS, 2 TD) was decent in his first start for Minnesota. WR Greg Jennings (3 REC, 92 YDS, 2 TD, 4 targets) and WR Jerome Simpson (7 REC, 154 YDS, 11 targets) both had big games as a result. 36. Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon (24-for-43, 193 YDS, 1 TD, 2 INT) made his first NFL start, but has some work to do. WR Vincent Jackson (2 REC, 27 YDS, 11 targets) was questionable all week and couldnt get loose against Arizona. 37. Not a great game for Cardinals RB Rashard Mendenhall (34 YDS, 1 lost fumble, 15 touches) against Tampa Bay. If Mendenhall struggles, that could mean more looks for rookie Andre Ellington (51 YDS, 7 touches). 38. With the Cardinals defence not having to pay big respect to the Tampa Bay passing attack, Bucs RB Doug Martin (63 YDS, 30 touches) endured a tough day. Martin ranks fourth in the league in rushing (342 YDS), but his average (3.4) is third-worst among 22 backs that have at least 200 rushing yards on the season. 39. Colts RB Trent Richardson (71 YDS, 1 TD, 22 touches), who ranks 22nd among those running backs (at 3.1 YPC), got plenty of touches in his second game with Indianapolis with Ahmad Bradshaw injured. Still waiting for the rushing average to increase though. 40. Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert (17-for-30, 179 YDS, 3 INT) returned to the starting lineup and was, as usual, ineffective. Weep for WR Cecil Shorts (7 REC, 61 YDS, 12 targets). 41. Not just Shorts. RB Maurice Jones-Drew (28 YDS, 14 touches) is finding it impossible to get loose. Hes rushed for 138 yards in four games, averaging 2.4 yards per carry. He led the league in rushing in 2011, with 1,606 yards, and averaged 4.8 yards per carry in the six games he played last season, so Jones-Drew has been productive on bad Jaguars teams, but its not working right now. 42. Jets QB Geno Smith (23-for34, 289 YDS, 1 TD, four turnovers) is not minding the ball very well. Its like hes competing with Eli Manning for the most generous QB in New York. Its a dead-heat right now, at 11 turnovers apiece. 43. Facing a Buffalo secondary missing four regulars (Stephon Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, Ron Brooks and Jairus Byrd), Ravens QB Joe Flacco (25-for-50, 347 YDS, 2 TD, 5 INT). WR Torrey Smith (5 REC, 166 YDS, 1 TD, 12 targets) had big numbers, but it was an overall mess of a day for the Baltimore passing game. 44. The Eagles completed passes to nine different players against Denver; TE Brent Celek (3 REC, 57 YDS, 6 targets) was most productive. 45. With Miles Austin out of the lineup, WR Terrance Williams (7 REC, 71 YDS, 8 targets) started for Dallas and was effective, but also fumbled at the San Diego goalline late in the fourth quarter to squash any Cowboys comeback hopes. 46. With Nate Burleson out, it was supposed to be a big opportunity for Lions WR Ryan Broyles, but he had no catches on one target while WR Khris Durham (3 REC, 58 YDS, 4 targets) led the Lions in receiving yards against Chicago. 47. Chargers rookie WR Keenan Allen (5 REC, 80 YDS, 6 targets) took on a bigger role against the Cowboys. He had three receptions for 30 yards through the first three games. 48. Ravens OLB Terrell Suggs (17 total tackles, 1 sack) was unusually active, posting a career-high in tackles. Only twice before, in 152 career regular season games, had he registered double digit tackles in a game. 49. Cowboys ILB Sean Lee had quite a day, in on 18 tackles (15 solo) and scoring a touchdown on a 52-yard interception return. 50. Other defensive players with big days in Week Four: Lions MLB Stephen Tulloch (14 tackles, 1 sack), Bills LB Kiko Alonso (2 INT), Bills SS DaNorris Searcy (6 tackles, 4 PD), Bills FS Aaron Williams (2 tackles, 2 INT, 4 PD), Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfice (14 tackles), Bears OLB Lance Briggs (13 tackles), Vikings CB Josh Robinson (12 tackles), Vikings OLB Chad Greenway (10 tackles, 1 sack, 1 INT), Colts OLB Robert Mathis (5 tackles, 3 sacks), Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus (6 tackles, 2.5 sacks), Vikings DE Jared Allen (4 tackles, 2.5 sacks), Eagles MLB DeMeco Ryans (12 tackles), Patriots CB Aqib Talib (2 tackles, 1 INT, 4 PD) Scott Cullen can be reached at Scott.Cullen@bellmedia.ca and followed on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tsnscottcullen.
