Patriots acquire OT Trent Brown from 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers have traded offensive tackle Trent Brown and the No. 143 pick to the New England Patriots in exchange for the No. 95 pick.

Brown, who is coming off season-ending shoulder surgery, flew to Foxborough on Thursday to undergo a physical Friday. When healthy, he is regarded as one of the premier pass-blocking offensive tackles in the league.

Brown’s contract will expire after this season, and the 49ers were looking for a more physical run-blocking tackle, which is why Brown became expendable in San Francisco. On Thursday night, the 49ers used the ninth pick in the 2018 first round on Notre Dame offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, who is expected to take over as the starter at right tackle.

After using their top 2018 NFL draft choice on Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, the Patriots have added two players who project to contribute along the offensive line this season.

In the third, the Bruins scored two 4-on-4 goals after matching penalties opened up the ice. Krug made it 4-4 on a slapper from the point just 1:10 in, and then DeBrusk put the Bruins ahead.

“I think that we’re all just pretty excited right now to have a chance to continue playing together and take on Tampa,” DeBrusk said. “We’re going to enjoy this one tonight, but then go back to the drawing board.”

Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, in his first full season on the Boston bench, was named a finalist for the Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s coach of the year. … Celtics Hall of Famer Tommy Heinsohn was the honorary fan banner captain, getting the crowd riled up before the game. … The Bruins are 14-12 in Game 7s and Toronto is 12-11. … Boston’s Kevan Miller had two assists for his first multi-point playoff game.

Kershaw surrendered three runs on five hits in five innings against the Marlins on Wednesday and fell to 1-4 on the season.

Overall, though, betting on the three-time Cy Young Award winner has been profitable. If you bet $100 on the Dodgers in each of Kershaw’s starts since 2008, you’re up more than $1,500.

Antonio Senzatela entered for injured starter Tyler Anderson, hit an RBI double and allowed one hit over 3 2/3 innings to lift the Colorado Rockies over the Miami Marlins 1-0 Friday night.

Senzatela (2-1) entered with one out and one on in the second after Anderson appeared to hurt his left side. Senzatela struck out four and walked one, departing after 62 pitches.

Anderson initially showed discomfort when warming up before the second inning but persuaded manager Bud Black to leave him in the game.dolphins_077
