The best goaltender in the NHL is heading to the 2012 All-Star Game, as expected. Tim Thomas dominated his competition in the goalie voting, finishing with 128,000 more than James Reimer of the Maple Leafs who finished second.

His election to the game in Ottawa comes through the initial fan voting. In the coming weeks, 36 more All-Stars will be chosen, and then be sorted through the fantasy draft system that determines the two teams. The game will be hosted on January 29th.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week following New England’s 27-24 come-from-behind victory over the Miami Dolphins.

Despite an abysmal first half in which the offense was shutout, Brady finished the afternoon with 304 yards and a trio of touchdowns (two rushing, one passing) on 27-46 passing.

This is the third time Brady has won the award this year, and the first time since Week 2. The Michigan alum captured the award after tossing for 517 yards on opening night against the Dolphins before winning it again with a 423-yard performance against the Chargers.

Just two days after many celebrated Christmas, former Patriots defensive tackle Houston Antwine and his wife Evelyn died late Monday and early Tuesday.

The Boston Globe reports that the causes of both death’s are undisclosed.

Antwine played in 142 regular season games with the Patriots, where he recorded 39 sacks. Antwine was an AFL all-star for six seasons, from 1963-68.

Antwine was elected to the Patriots 1960s All-Decade team and was nominated for the Patriots Hall of Fame for the past three years.

“I am saddened to learn of the deaths of both Houston and Evelyn and want to express my deepest sympathies to the Antwine’s daughter, Regina, and all who mourn her losses,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said.

A court ruled Friday that current NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury will not be charged for his alleged assault on a 12-year-old hockey player.

The incident occurred earlier this month at a youth hockey game in Brookline. According to the Boston Herald, “after Milbury’s son and a player for the other team got into a scrape on the ice, Milbury charged out onto the rink and verbally berated and grabbed and shook the 12-year-old opposing player.”

The 59-year-old Milbury later admitted to the Globe that he did grab the 12-year-old by his sweater and swear at him.

The clerk magistrate ruled, however, that there was not enough evidence to continue with the case. Continue reading Mike Milbury Won’t Be Charged For Assault on 12-Year-Old »

It didn’t look good when the Patriots leading pass rusher went down early Sunday afternoon.

The news remained bleak following the Patriots 41-23 win over the Denver Broncos. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported that Andre Carter’s agent, Carl Poston, said Carter has a quad-related injury “that will require surgery.”

There is no timetable on Carter’s return, but it doesn’t appear to be promising.

The unsung hero to the league’s worst defense, Carter leads the Patriots with 10 sacks. The initial wound of being without Carter wasn’t evident too much Sunday. Fellow free agent acquisition Mark Anderson saw his reps increase, and Anderson made good on the extended playing time.
