Bruins clinch NHL's top record, beat Sabres 4-1

BOSTON Cheering fans stood and waved gold and black towels as the Boston Bruins claimed the Presidents’ Trophy for the NHL’s best regular-season record.

The celebration will be a lot bigger if the Bruins achieve their ultimate goal, winning the Stanley Cup.

“We’ve still got to do some work here in order to get the trophy that we all really want,” Boston coach Claude Julien said.

David Krejci scored two goals, Patrice Bergeron netted his 30th of the season, and Gregory Campbell got his eighth as the Bruins dominated the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 Saturday in a game between teams at opposite ends of the standings.

It’s the second time the Bruins have won the Presidents’ Trophy, which gives them home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs, since the award was instituted for the 1985-86 season.

The Bruins have 117 points, third most in team history behind 121 in 1970-71 and 119 when they won the Stanley Cup in the 1971-72 season. Buffalo’s 51 points are tied for its fewest in a season not shortened by a lockout. Each team has one game left.

“We need to play a really strong game and feel good about our game going into the playoffs,” Krejci said.

Boston will end its regular-season schedule at New Jersey on Sunday. Buffalo will finish at home against the New York Islanders.

Boston’s first-round playoff opponent was still unknown, with Philadelphia, Columbus and Detroit all possibilities.

Cody Hodgson scored for the Sabres, but Buffalo sustained another blow in a frustrating, injury-plagued season. Starting goalie Matt Hackett was taken from the ice on a stretcher after Boston defenseman Torey Krug fell on his right leg in the crease with 11:35 left.

At border Mass, bishops call for compassion, immigration reform

By Patricia Zapor Catholic News Service

NOGALES, Ariz. (CNS) — With the backdrop a few feet away of the rusted iron slats of the 30-foot wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, Boston Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley and a dozen other bishops from three countries prayed April 1 for compassion and for a return to ideals that welcome immigrants.

More than 300 people formed the outdoor congregation on the U.S. side of the border and hundreds more participated on the Mexico side, receiving Communion pressed into hands that stretched between the slats, illustrating that, as one teenage member of the choir put it, “we are all one community — we are all bilingual and bicultural.”

“We have lost a sense of responsibility for our brothers and sisters,” Pope Francis said. “We have fallen into the hypocrisy of the priest and the Levite whom Jesus described in the parable of the good Samaritan.”

Cardinal O’Malley quoted Pope Francis further: “The culture of comfort, which makes us think only of ourselves, makes us insensitive to the cries of other people.”

The Mass at the intersection of International Street and Nelson capped a two-day experience of the border region for bishops from as far away as Atlanta and Guatemala. Beginning with a Mass the day before at San Xavier del Bac Mission outside Tucson, which dates from when the entire region was part of Mexico, the bishops then walked along rough desert paths used by migrants.

Crawling under strands of barbed wire, scrunching low to walk through a culvert beneath a road, dodging cactus and sticker bushes, the group came upon empty water bottles, backpacks and other belongings abandoned by the migrants who cross the hilly, rocky terrain as they try to get past the various security measures and agents used by the Border Patrol to try to stop illegal immigration.

Then the group met with the Border Patrol at their regional headquarters, before crossing into Mexico to serve dinner at a church-sponsored “comedor,” or soup kitchen. The “comedor” serves people who have been deported or who are figuring out whether they want to try to sneak into the United States.

Obama welcomes World Series champion Red Sox

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has welcomed the World Series champion Red Sox to the White House, praising their triumph on the field last fall while hailing them as a symbol of their city’s determined response to the bombing at last year’s Boston Marathon. Obama said Tuesday he’s grateful for the role the team played in helping heal the city after the terror attack.
