BOSTON -- Shortstop Derek Jeter went back on the disabled list. Leadoff hitter Brett Gardner was ejected for throwing his helmet. And outfielder Zoilo Almonte sprained his ankle during the game. The already limping Yankees were further depleted in the first game after the All-Star break on Friday night when they lost 4-2 to Boston to fall seven games behind the AL East-leading Red Sox. "You just deal with it," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "No one is going to feel sorry for us." The Yankees fell behind 3-0 when starter Andy Pettitte gave up homers to Jacoby Ellsbury and Johnny Gomes. And they were ill-equipped to come back when Gardner and Almonte left the game and joined already injured starters Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson and Francisco Cervelli. "It happens to every team, every year. Injuries are a part of it," Jeter said before the game. "Id be lying to you if I said it wasnt kind of odd the way things have been happening. You get guys back, they get hurt again. The number of guys is something that I havent seen here since Ive been here, but other teams have to deal with it, too." The Yankees placed their captain on the 15-day DL with a strained right quadriceps that he injured in his first game back last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle. Jeter rejected the possibility that he returned too soon from the injury he sustained in last years playoffs. "I dont think thats the case," he told reporters before the series opener on Friday. "I was ready to come back; I came back; I was running fine. This happened, but this happens to guys who go through full spring trainings and play a lot of games." The Yankees had waited to make a decision, using the four days of the All-Star break for the shortstop to receive treatment. Jeter said he had hoped to play against the Red Sox, but he hadnt tested his leg in anything close to a game environment. "Right now, its fine. But I havent run," he said. "Im pretty sure theyll make me run before they have me play." Jeter, 39, broke his left ankle in the opener of the AL championship series last October, then spent the winter and the first 3 1/2 months of the season getting back to the field. After just four rehabilitation games, the Yankees pushed up his return after Gardner and Travis Hafner got hurt. Jeter had been telling the team he was ready to return, and general manager Brian Cashman said he received positive reports from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Jeter returned to a huge ovation and beat out an infield hit on the first pitch he saw in the majors this year. But he left the game against Kansas City on July 11 in the eighth inning when his quad tightened in his third at-bat. "I dont think they trust me too much anymore," he said at Fenway Park. Jeter said at the time he hoped the strain was "not a big deal." He missed the weekend series against Minnesota and hoped to avoid the DL. "Its frustrating. Ive spent a lot of time trying to get my ankle right and get back on the field, which I did," he said Friday. "Finally, when that was good to go, something else happens. These things happen. Ive played entire spring trainings and pulled a muscle at the end. I think a lot of times people want to try to tie one to the other. Its not necessarily the case." The Yankees also signed infielder Brent Lillibridge from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Jeter joins Teixeira (wrist surgery), outfielder Granderson (broken pinkie) and catcher Cervelli (broken hand), who have been hurt and then had setbacks or second injuries. Teixeira returned briefly before season-ending surgery. Cervelli developed a stress reaction and is shut down for now. Granderson broke his forearm in his first at-bat in spring training only to be hit again after eight games back. Despite all the injuries, the Yankees were 51-44 at the All-Star break, six games behind first-place Boston but in fourth in the AL East. They were three games out of the last wild-card spot. Granderson has resumed taking on-field batting practice at the Yankees minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., and says he is "working on repetition" with his swing. Team officials have said Granderson could be back early next month. Infielder Jayson Nix, sidelined by a strained right hamstring, got six at-bats during a simulated game in Tampa. Hes started 40 games at shortstop and 24 games at third base this season for the Yankees. Rodriguez is playing with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, likely the final stop in his rehabilitation from left hip surgery before he returns to the Yankees as early as Monday. "From everything I understand, he feels good," Jeter said. "I think hes going to help us." Cheap Nike Shirts China . The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. Shirts China Outlet .

Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. Discount Shirts China . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. Nothing Henrik Lundqvist does surprises the New York Rangers. Thursday night was merely the latest example in the goalies All-Star career.Returning to action after missing four games while Antti Raanta played superbly in his place, Lundqvist teamed with Raanta for a 2-0 shutout at Dallas.Lundqvist didnt get the shutout, as he sat out 5:31 of the first period while in concussion protocol after being leveled behind the net by Stars center Cody Eakin. Fortunately for Lundqvist, he was able to return and stopped 27 shots for the win.I felt really good, but I could tell I hadnt played in a little while, Lundqvist said. It was a little weird to be out there at first. I am not used to having a week (off). I felt fresh and excited to be out there.While the Rangers didnt practice Friday, Lundqvist might be back in the lineup Saturday night when they finish their brief two-game road trip against the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.At 21-10-1, New York leads the NHL in wins and is tied with Pittsburgh for first place in the Metropolitan Division. The Rangers only got better with the return of Lundqvist and Rick Nash (groin), who was idle for four games before breaking a scoreless tie in the third period at Dallas with a shorthanded goal.New York coach Alain Vigneault was alternately happy with his team and furious with Eakin, who received a major penalty and game misconduct for the hit, and earned a four-game suspension from the NHL on Friday.They better do something about that and they better take care of business, Vigneault said. As far as Hanks play, theres no doubt he played extremely well. He did whaat we expected and he gave us a real solid performance.ddddddddddddMeanwhile, Nashville (13-12-4) took a step backward Thursday night with a 5-2 home loss to Minnesota. Playing their first game after rallying from a 3-0 deficit Tuesday night to bag a 6-3 win over St. Louis, the Predators gave up two goals in 29 seconds late in the first period and never caught up.It was the ninth straight game, dating to Nov. 27, that Nashville has allowed at least three goals.I thought our game was pretty good five-on-five, Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. We let it slip for two minutes. We probably played 50 to 55 minutes that we really liked.But blown defensive assignments continued to color Nashvilles recent efforts. After going 9-3-2 in November, it is now 2-4-1 in December. Goalie Pekka Rinne, the NHLs First Star for November with a 1.49 goals-against average and .949 save percentage, has a save percentage of .848, although the defense in front of him hasnt helped.Everyone has to make a conscious effort to be better, Predators captain Mike Fisher said.Saturday nights game will also mark the first game for Rangers left winger Jimmy Vesey in Nashville. A third-round pick by the Predators in the 2012 Entry Draft, Vesey opted not to sign with the organization after completing a great career at Harvard and wound up in New York after declining to sign with Buffalo, which acquired his rights via trade in June.The reception for Vesey, who has 10 goals and seven assists in 31 games, is expected to be harsh.
