Good evening. I'm Darren Perron. And I'm Melissa Howell -- in for Kristin Kelly. Police say it was a suicide attempt -- by car. Instead -- a Vermont couple -- and their unborn child -- ended up dead. Today -- 53-year-old Robert Dellinger was arraigned on two counts of manslaughter. Adam Sullivan was there. He has the latest tonight. Adam? Darren-- according to the New Hampshire Attorney General's office- the vctims-- who are from Wilder-- where killed instantly when Robert Dellinger's truck plowed into them. And today, prsecutors told the court that Dellinger did it on purpose. Authorities say Dellinger was traveling south on Interstate 89 when he crossed the median and struck the victims' car head on. Police say 29-year-old Jason Timmons and 24-year-old Amanda Murphy where headed north-- litterally in the wrong place at the wrong time. Dellinger was hospitalized during the crash and was arrested Tuesday immediately after he was discharged.
((Morrell: " ... Adam Question" In an attempt to take his own life? Morrell: "Yes, in an attempt to take his own life.")) Dellinger did NOT enter a plea at today's hearing-- which was done by video conference. The judge ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation before his next court hearing December 19th. There was a strong showing from Dellinger's family in court today -- and they have indicated they will be able to come of with the 200-thousand dollars bail Dellinger is being held on. He was also ordered to surrender his license and his passport and NOT leave the state of New Hampshire. The victims were engaged to be married. And as we have reported Amanda Murphy was eight months pregnant. But charges will not be filed in connection with the death of the unborn child.
((Morrell: "The law is very clear in New Hampshrie that under the homicide statues, you have to cause teh death of another and the legislature has defined another not to include a fetus so it requires there is a life birth rule in New Hampshire.")) If convicted on the two counts of manslaughter Delinger faces, he could spend 30 to 60 years behind bars. Prosecutors told the court that because of his age, that would essentially amount to a life sentence. Dellinger's family left the court-- and did not speak to the press. I have reached out to the victim's family and they too have declined comment. Darren?
Adam Sullivan -- thank you. A candlelight vigil is being held in Wilder tonight for the victims. We'll have more -- on that -- tonight at 11.
A Franklin County family is turning tragedy into hope. Last February -- carbon monoxide poisoning -- killed a Georgia teen in his car. As a way to cope with his death -- Logan Newell's family started a foundation in his honor -- with the goal of helping needy families in the area. Tonight -- our Jennifer Reading is live in St. Albans -- where the foundation is bringing Christmas to Taylor Park. Jennifer? Darren and Melissa -- Christmas is still a few weeks away -- but dozens/hundreds are already getting into the holiday spirit here in Taylor Park. The Logan J. Newell Foundation has raised thousands of dollars since the 17-year-old's death last winter. It's been ten months of sadness for his family -- but tonight is all about celebration. The event is called "Christmas from Logan." His family and friends are here in Taylor Park handing out more than 260 gifts to children under the age of 10. There are sleigh rides -- carolers -- holiday treats -- and of course a visit from Santa. Logan's mom tells me Christmas was her son's favorite holiday. And she sat down to speak exclusively to Channel 3 about the past year's struggles -- and the family's hopes for the future of the foundation.
((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:10:24 "Losing a child is...I can't even describe the pain.")) It's been a heartbreaking ten months -- for Georgia mom Heidi Hughes. Her son Logan Newell -- was killed days after his 17th birthday. This will be the family's first Christmas without their youngest son. ((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:13:14 "Ohhhh... he was my elf." 00:13:20 "He was always the one to help me carry down presents, just so he could open one to re-wrap so his father didn't know.")) Last February -- police found Logan's body -- at the St. Albans town park and ride -- inside his older model Volkswagon Jetta. Tests revealed two leaks in the exhaust system. One -- by the air intake valve -- caused exhaust to be sucked into Logan's car when the heat was on -- filling it -- almost instantly -- with lethal levels of carbon monoxide. Police say they had spotted Logan there before -- reportedly feeling tired and nauseous. But no one suspected he was being poisoned. ((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:11:20 "As a mom I'm supposed to protect my child and I felt I let him down. And I live with that every day.")) Police say Logan's car was properly inspected. But as a birthday gift -- his parents ordered him a new muffler. It arrived the day after Logan died. Now his mom has a warning for other parents. ((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:08:35 "I allowed Logan many a times to change a muffler, but they're only kids. They really don't know what they're doing." 00:09:10 "It might be cool and it might look good but that doesn't mean their kid is safe." 00:08:48 "Your kids got a bad muffler, bring it in. If you need money, come to the foundation.")) Logan's family created a foundation -- in his name -- shortly after his death. The goal -- to provide financial assistance to those who need it in Franklin County. The organization doesn't dole out cash -- but will buy food or fuel. And will pay for things like medical expenses -- even Christmas trees. Heidi says her son had two passions -- driving tractors -- and helping others. This foundation allows her to honor his memory. ((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:04:25 "I can focus on something rather then just losing Logan." 00:18:18 "We haven't had a lot of people come to us and say hey we need a little help. That's what it's there for.")) And next year -- the foundation plans to tackle carbon monoxide awareness. The colorless, odorless gas -- dubbed the silent killer. ((Lisa Hayden/Logan's Aunt 00:03:43 "we've heard from many people that the tragic loss of Logan has helped at least save a couple kids because we know their parents went and checked their cars and found the same leaks in their mufflers.")) Logan -- continuing to save lives -- after his was taken -- too soon. ((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:08:06 "His dad, myself his brother had 17 short years with Logan, but he truly left us with a lifetime of memories and he will always own a place in all of our hearts.")) Hearts that are healing this holiday season -- with every child who receives a gift in Logan's name. ((Heidi Hughes/Logan's Mom 00:15:20 "That's the first time in 10 months that I saw his father excited about anything we have done. And I knew it was the right thing to do." 00:15:40 "if I just see one kid smile that will make my day."))
Christmas for Logan will be going on for about another hour here in Taylor Park. The foundation is asking everyone to bring a non-perishable food item for the local food shelves. And of course -- if you would like to learn more about the Logan J. Newell Foundation -- click the infocenter on our website -- wcax-dot-com. Darren.
Police say a deer may have caused a deadly crash on the Burlington beltline. 56-year-old Gregory Burt of Colchester was killed when his car collided with a school bus on Monday. Police now say Burt hit a deer -- just prior to the crash -- which caused him to lose control and veer into the path of the bus. Police say it was also icy. And Burt may not have been able to regain control of his car after hitting the deer. No one on the bus was hurt.
Authorities say allegations of sex assault in Plattsburgh -- led to a brawl. And now some fraternity brothers are facing charges. And more -- could be coming. Logan Crawford is in Plattsburgh with more tonight. Logan? Melissa, two SUNY Plattsburgh students are facing felony charges. They are accused of assaulting another student from the school - outside their frat house... Allegedly attacking him and breaking his jaw and knocking out several teeth. Police say it all started when the victim asked about his friend who claims she was sexually assaulted. An allegation which is still under investigation.
(tile 5724 00:10:49:12) ((Bryan Hartman/VP Student Affairs SUNY Plattsburgh "A lot of what happened that night was preventable." 00:10:54:28)) Plattsburgh Police arrested twenty year old Nicholas Simmons and twenty-one year old Luis Munoz, both Plattsburgh students ... Both charged with the assault of a fellow student - Daniel Colflesh. The suspects may not only face punishment from the law.. but from the school as well. (tile 5724 00:08:28:11) ((Bryan Hartman/VP Student Affairs SUNY Plattsburgh "conduct some additional interviews to fill in the gaps based upon information that has been told to our university police, and then once we complete our investigation, we will then most likely bring college charges against students." 00:08:48:17)) (tile 5734 00:32:10:19) ((Logan Crawford/Plattsburgh "Police say when Daniel Colflesh heard his friend had been allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted, he headed over to Brinkerhoff Street to investigate. That's when he was jumped... his jaw broken and his teeth knocked out." 00:32:22:21)) (tile 5725 00:16:44:10) ((Chief Desmond Racicot/Plattsburgh Police "Some more males come over to the area of Brinkerhoff street, and they see a group of males on the porch of 147 Brinkerhoff street, and they go on the porch and they then get involved in an altercation." 00:16:55:20)) Chief Racicot says more charges are pending, and as the investigation continues more arrests could be made. (tile 5725 00:17:06:17) ((Chief Desmond Racicot/Plattsburgh Police "Right now, the arrests made are in reference to the first assault of the single male. The investigation with the female allegedly being drugged and sexually assaulted is under investigation." 00:17:18:19)) School officials say they are waiting for city police to finish their investigation, before beginning their own. (tile 5724 00:10:57:26) ((Bryan Hartman/VP Student Affairs SUNY Plattsburgh "Too many of our students are going to suffer consequences because of the poor decisions they made." 00:11:05:24))
The police investigation is still ongoing. Police say more arrests could follow once they have fully investigated the alleged sexual assault. Melissa.
Police say they have the man wanted for three bank robberies in the Upper Valley in custody. 30-year-old James Oberfeldt of Claremont is currently jailed in Massachusetts on a drug charge. Police say he's been identified in connection with three stick ups in the last two months.

New Jersey Governor -- and possible 20-16 presidential candidate -- Chris Christie -- is in Vermont tonight. But you won't hear from him unless you're ready to pay up. Kyle Midura is live... WELL outside the Republican Winter Gala tonight in Essex Junction. Kyle, you and the rest of the media won't be allowed in the hear the Governor's remarks, what do we know about tonight's event? Darren, the gala is due to begin in a little less than an hour this is as close as we're allowed to get. Tickets to tonight's event cost party-goers between 50 dollars for the gala to 10-thousand dollars. Governor Christie arrived at the Champlain Valley Exposition a short while ago. He'll then be the keynote speaker here. Vermont Republican Party President David Sunderland expects about 650 people to attend tonight's event featuring Gov. Christie, raising about 300-thousand dollars. No camera's allowed - but guests will be allowed to post to social media sites like Twitter. We couldn't find out exactly what's on the menu - but we're told it's primarily local foods.
Not everyone in the Republican party is star-struck tonight. Former Republican National Committeeman from Vermont Skip Vallee "What are these people thinking? They want a supposed new message from a New Jersey moderate and then put a big old muzzle on his face? Hardly an auspicious start for the Republican Governors Association or the revamped Vermont GOP." ********************** ***************** "We're obviously very pleased to have Governor Christie talk to Vermont Republicans tonight. This is a fundraiser and with someone of Governor Christie's profile, an event open to the press would attract not only throngs of Vermont media, but also national media. For space and logistics, we thought it best to keep the event private as has been the case at Governor Shumlin's fundraisers and fundraisers across the state." Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin - who is president of the Democratic Governor's Association and generally quick to fire a political round said only "welcome to Vermont" when asked if he had any reaction to Christie's visist. The state Democratic party however sent out an attack email this afternoon blasting 10-thousand dollar a plate dinners and asking for email recipients to donate five to their cause. - Darren.
Governor Peter Shumlin says a report issued in May indicated that the state's health insurance exchange had serious flaws -- but that report never landed on his desk. A company tasked with reviewing Vermont Health Connect's development began issuing warnings about potential problems with the website's progress last spring. The reports noted that the issues should be brought to the attention of the highest levels of state government. At a press conference today, Gov. Shumlin insisted that he did not hear significant concern about the website's readiness until after Labor Day.
((54:15 - :28 Gov. Peter Shumlin - D-Vermont Governors don't read those reports I don't have the time in the day to sit there and obviously wade through every single report when we're building one of the most complex websites that healthcare has ever integrated and delivered )) Shumlin says he relied on Vermont Health Connect's administrators for readiness updates and that requiring the reports allowed staff to address potential problems in a timely fashion. He added that despite on-going problems, Vermont's exchange is faring better than any other in the nation.
The city of Rutland has a new website. After losing its old one. Elizabeth Keatinge is in Rutland tonight. She has the story. Elizabeth? RutlandCity dot com no longer belongs to the Marble City. It now belongs to someone else. And it's actually part of a bigger income generating business of domain name purchasing.
By the time the city of Rutland realized its website wasn't working this past weekend - it was already in the hands of someone nowhere near Vermont. ((Henry A. Heck/Rutland City Clerk 07:33:35:21"Unfortunat ely, it was picked up by an entity out there, that quote on quote, apparently hijacks domain names, looking to see if maybe they can sell them back."07:33:46:29)) Rutland officials determined that the original rutlandcity.com website had been registered to the email address of someone who no longer works for the city, and therefore did not get any notices of renewal. They called in IT professionals - ((Henry A. Heck ... 07:39:47:02 They established that the domain name had been purchased by an individual in Panama City, Panama.07:39:54:04)) Internet professionals say snatching up expired websites is big business. ((David Morgan/Internet and Marketing Professional 07:46:54:28 "Usually when a domain name is expired and been released to the public, companies pick up these names because they have been generating traffic.07:47:05:06)) ((Elizabeth Keatinge/Rutland 08:00:29:02 "The city of Rutland's old website already has Vermont related advertisements that one expert tells me is generating income for the new owner.08:00:37:12)) ((David A. Morgan/Internet and Marketing Professional 07:48:00:25 "Those links are basically advertising, so every time someone clicks on one of those links, they generate some income from it.07:48:09:22)) The practice of waiting for websites to expire is fairly common. ((David A Morgan/Internet and Marketing Professional 07:46:34:06 "Quite a few domain names that have been in the same type of predicament."07:46:40: 01)) Rutland residents use the site to order birth certificates and pay taxes and other city fees. One resident coming to pay in person at the office says he doesn't see how the city could lose track of such important online property. ((Raymond Clifford/Rutland Resident 07:43:13:08 "Gee, why aren't they on top of it more, you know, and taking care of things?07:43:18:01)) ((Henry A. Heck/Rutland City Clerk 07:34:56:12 The inconvenience to the general public was minimal, basically all of Monday, part of Tuesday the site was reestablished 07:35:03:10))
The City of Rutland now has a new domain name at RutlandCity dot org, and all city officials with rutland city dot com email addresses have also been changed.
Some drivers heading to work in the Burlington area found their commute snarled -- by some late-season paving on the Winooski River Bridge. V-trans says the delays this morning were actually meant to prevent more construction traffic this winter. Cat Viglienzoni explains how.
Wednesday morning commuters were met with a strange sight for mid-December -- paving crews, working on the Winooski River bridge on I-89 -- well past the end of the construction season. CONSTRUCTION NATS Vtrans says it was responding to complaints from drivers that they were feeling a large jolt when they hit the bridge joints -- and they were concerned it could be dangerous -- especially when the weather is bad. The agency says the bridge joint itself was fine. The pavement was the problem -- and doing nothing was not an option. ((SOT Ted Domey -- Operations Maintenence Paving Manager 3930 There was significant pavement deterioration along the two finger joints along the end of the bridge, plus we have some potholeing 3936)) This steaming new pavement is a band-aid approach, designed to let the bridge last until the summer, when it's scheduled as part of a much larger paving project between Richmond and the Burlington area. But there are concerns this quick fix --- may not last until then. ((SOT David Blackmore, Northwest Region District Administrator 5231 obviously the paving temperatures are less than favorable 33 we would love to have warmer weather but this is our last-ditch effort. This week the plants are closing and we have to make a decision 40)) That decision costs about 35-thousand dollars. There isn't an easy comparison to patching up potholes, which costs about 25-hundred dollars each time -- and ties up traffic for the day. Transportation officials say it was the hassle to drivers that pushed them to try what they hope will be a one-time deal. ((SOT David Blackmore, Northwest Region District Administrator 5445 if we can get between now and that paving construction season next year, it will be a success story 5450)) There are no guarantees. And if this doesn't work, Vtrans says it's back to square one -- patching up any holes -- until the project this summer. Cat Viglienzoni, Channel 3 News Winooski.

There's a push to get harmful toxins off the shelves of local businesses. And today -- supporters came out to find out what this could mean for Vermont.
Vermont lawmakers and environmentally friendly businesses -- say a proposed bill would direct the Vermont Health Department to create a list of harmful chemicals. Manufactures would then have to disclose if any of those chemicals are in their products. ((Ann Pugh/ House Committee on Human Services Chair 00:36:51 "it'll reduce public health costs, it'll reduce the cost of cleanup of our lakes in terms of toxins. it will increase the cache of Vermont businesses." 00:37:03)) That's because the goal is to get these companies to stop using toxins altogether. ((Ann Pugh/ House Committee on Human Services Chair 00:34:42 "Subsequent years after that, manufactures would have to remove those chemicals from any products that they want to sell in Vermont." 00:34:52)) ((John Replogle/Seventh Generation CEO:00:32:20 "There will be short term costs to passing that bill, to putting it in place, but I think the long term benefits far outweigh and what it will do is it will really move vermont to the front of the pack." 00:32:32)) It's called the Vermont Toxic Chemical Reform Legislation. Supporters hope to see more businesses jump on board, and are confident that the reform will create more competitive and innovative industries. ((00:35:30 Pugh "Vermont needs to act because the federal government doesn't act quickly enough." 00:35:37))
The legislation to get toxins out of consumer products will be introduced in the senate this session.
Two men are behind bars tonight after a burglary in Saint Albans. Saint Albans Police arrested James Perron and Eric Walsh Tuesday for allegedly stealing a safe containing 15-thousand dollars in cash. It happened on Pearl Street. Perron is facing burglary charges -- Walsh is being charged as an accessory. Both men are being held at the Northwest Correctional Center for lack of 20-thousand dollars in bail.
Deer Hunting season is over -- wildlife officials say one man could face jail time for poaching in Craftsbury. They say Kenneth Bacon Jr. Of Barton shot a deer from his vehicle out of season. Bacon had already shot a deer during hunting season -- he is due in court on January 28th.
A New York woman is recovering after being attacked by a rabid bobcat at her Putnam home. She says it pounced on her last week -- while she was standing at the door of her home. The bobcat latched onto her face -- and bit her head, shoulder, arms, and thigh before someone shot it. It later tested positive for rabies. Wildlife officials stress these kinds of attacks are rare.
Plattsburgh gets its taste buds kicked up a notch with a new Buffalo Wild Wings. The chain restaurant opened this week. The sports bar is best known for it's chicken wings and their big screen TVs that always have a game on. The restaurant adds 1-hundred and twenty new jobs to the Plattsburgh area. The sports bar is co-owned by former NHL and UVM hockey star Aaron Miller... who also co-owns the Buffalo Wild Wings in South Burlington. That's news around the region.
Starting Line Sports ...quarterback McCallum Foote has had a record setting career at Middlebury ...and now the senior has capped it by being recognized as one of the top Division Three football players in the country. Foote has been named one of the four finalists for the 2013 Gagliardi Trophy... given to the nation's most outstanding Division Three football player. It's the D-3 version of the Heisman Trophy. Foote earned NESCAC offensive player of the year honors for the second straight season while leading Middlebury to a 7-1 record and a share of the conference title.

Coming up later in sports...it's reunion week for the Celtics ...last night it was Pierce, KG and the Nets...tonight...coach Doc Rivers and the Clippers.
The nation's top breast cancer experts are meeting this week in Texas -- revealing the latest research -- and treatment. Teresa Garcia has more.
Some women over 65 diagnosed with low grade breast cancer that is fueled by hormones may be able to avoid radiation. New research presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium looked at hundreds of older patients treated with or without radiation and found no difference in overall survival and small differences in recurrence rates after five years. There's been a lot of recent studies with varying results on the benefits of mammography. Researchers for the American Cancer Society took another look at the data from four large studies. They say when they focused the findings specifically on women over 50, there was a clear benefit to screening. (SOT Dr. Freya Schnabel/NYU Langone Medical Center) all of them show within this age group a consistent benefit in reducing the mortality from breast cancer Studies show that African American women are more likely to get aggressive breast cancers and now new research finds vigorous exercise may offer protection. (SOT Dr. Freya Schnabel/NYU Langone Medical Center) women who over the course of a long period of time exercised three or more hours per week had a 47 percent reduction in the risk of developing these more aggressive types of breast cancer women in the study did exercise including brisk walking, tennis and aerobics. Teresa Garcia, CBS News.
In the exercise study, researchers looked at about 45-thousand women over 30. That's health watch.
The cold temperatures have the snow guns going. Ski areas are trying to open up more terrain in time for the holidays. This week on Slopeside, we're taking you down the trails of Okemo.
((Chris Landon Surry N.H., 52:17-19 He said, maybe you should be a snowboarder, Dad)) Chris Landon listened to his son, Max...and decided to go for it. ((Chris Landon Surry N.H 52:20-25 So February of last year we both started in earnest, and I've been chasing him around the mountain since.)) With the boarding bug in full swing this season these guys know what they like. ((Max Landon 52:47-52 If there's rock one day and you get a bunch of snow, I just like going in the new snow.)) Like many folks who venture to the mountain, Chris and Max look for powder. However, this young winter season hasn't produced too much in the way of natural snow just yet-- Thankfully Okemo has some tricks up their sleeve to keep surfaces soft and edgeable. ((Bonnie MacPherson Okemo 33:23-35 We kind of move our guns around to where we need them to be. And our whole process of grooming is about mountain tilling and then passing over; we groom every single trail twice at night)) And the added effort shows. ((Linda Seder, Ludlow 40:38-46 1 out of 10, 9.5 to 10. It was that good...packed powder, the grooming was spectacular)) ((Richard Davis Brownsville 44:21-30 Packed machine made powder, with some regular snow mixed in, because they picked up 2 or 3 inches.)) Chris and Max like the conditions too. ((Chris Landon Surry N.H. 54:15-17 The groomers did a nice job.)) This is just one of many days that these guys will be on the mountain this season. ((Chris Landon Surry N.H. 53:16-23 We're shooting for 100. It's a nice round number. So far we're on pace. Max has got 31 and I'm at 27)) In order to reach their goal, the Landons had to make some serious changes-- Max is now home-schooled. ((Nick Borelli Ludlow 53:43-46 And this was all so you could get your boarding days in right?)) ((Chris Landon 53:46-48 'laugh' yes, it is!)) ((Nick Borelli Ludlow 56:39-48 While some resorts like Okemo are making their own snowstorm, a bigger storm could be on the way from Mother Nature by this weekend, and some folks are very happy about it.)) ((Chris Landon 54:49-55 Tell you what-- We'll be up early and we'll be close to the first chair as we possibly can.)) And others would consider it an early gift from the big guy who rides around in a sleigh. ((Richard Davis Brownsville 47:16-20 You know the only thing I want for Christmas?-- A snowstorm!)) Something that many of us are anxiously waiting for. Nick Borelli. Ch 3 News. Ludlow.

The UVM women's hockey team looks to close out the 2013 portion of it's schedule with a winning record when the Cats travel down I-89 tonight to face Twin State rival Dartmouth. Vermont comes into tonight's matchup riding a four game unbeaten streak, they've lost just one in their last eight games and own an overall record of 7-7-3. Special teams have been just that for the Catamounts... Vermont owns the top power play in Hockey East, and the seventh best in the nation... while senior goalie Roxanne Douville has a 2.35 goals against average and a 91% save percentage. The Cats are 2-0-2 against ECAC opponents this season ...although they have lost 34 straight against Dartmouth, with their last win coming back in 1981. The Big Green are off to a rough start... just 2-10 overall, including a pair of one goal losses to Hockey East programs Northeastern and UNH over the past two weeks. We'll have highlights from Hanover at eleven.
NHL last night...an emotional night in Calgary...the Bruins visiting the Flames... an extended ovation for B's forward Jerome Iginla...his first game back in the Saddledome since being traded to Pittsburgh in March. Iginla spent his first 16 NHL seasons in Calgary and he's the club's all-time leader in both goals and points ... --- the Bruins trailed 1-0 until, with less than eight minutes to go in the third, David Krejci scores on the power play to tie things at one...and just over two minutes later, Reilly Smith nets the game winner ... Boston takes it 2-1 for their third win in a row...four players with local ties on the ice for this one... Vermont's Kevan Miller and Nick Johnson of Dartmouth for the Bruins...fellow Big Greeners Lee Stempniak and David Jones for Calgary. None had a point in the game. Boston is in Edmonton tomorrow night.
Meanwhile, the L-A Kings earned their first win in Montreal since 1999 last night ...and did so in convincing fashion... six different Kings scores and rookie goalie Martin Jones made 31 saves to post his second straight shutout as Los Angeles blanked the Canadiens 6-0. With that loss and Boston's win, the Bruins now lead the Habs by three points in the Atlantic Division. Montreal visits Philly tomorrow night.
Deja vu week continues for the Celtics as Boston welcomes former head coach Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers to the TD Garden tonight. After nine years as Boston's head coach, a stint that included one NBA title and another trip to the Finals, Rivers was allowed out of his contract and traded to L-A for a 2015 first round draft pick.
