News and Notes From Your New England Teams

Here is the latest New England sports news from The Associated Press.

BOSTON (AP) — The Bruins host the Canadiens tonight as the Original Six rivals renew their storied rivalry for the first time this season. Boston is coming off a 6-2 loss to the Jets in its opener Thursday night. Montreal beat Toronto 3-1 Wednesday in their opening game.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have reportedly signed Dion Lewis to a two-year extension and coach Bill Belichick is praising the running back for his off-field work. Belichick says Lewis does what he’s asked to do and “doesn’t ask any questions.” Belichick says “you love to coach guys like that.”

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots have signed offensive lineman Chris Barker to the practice squad and released rookie Sean Hickey. This is Barker’s third stint on the practice squad this season. Hickey is a rookie free agent who was signed to the practice squad last week.

NEW YORK (AP) — The puck is set to drop for the four-team National Women’s Hockey League. The league will open its first season Sunday, with the New York Riveters traveling to Stamford to face the Connecticut Whale, and the Buffalo Beauts hosting the Boston Pride. Each team will play an 18-game schedule that runs through the end of February.

TORONTO (AP) — Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred says it’s “not appropriate” to enforce pace-of-play rules as strictly during the postseason. Manfred says he’s pleased with cooperation from players during the regular season, when the average time of a nine-inning game was cut by six minutes this year to 2:56.
