Flu sidelines Jagr, while Bruins remain without Horton

WASHINGTON -- The Boston Bruins will be without Jaromir Jagr on Saturday as they face the Washington Capitals in their next-to-last game of the regular-season.

Jagr remained in Boston with the flu while Nathan Horton will miss his third straight game with an upper-body injury. According to Bruins coach Claude Julien, both players are day-to-day.

Since joining the Bruins earlier this month in a trade with the Dallas Stars, Jagr has two goals and nine points in 11 games. He skated 14:30 in Boston's 2-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday -- his lowest time-on-ice since the trade.

The Bruins conclude the regular-season Sunday against the Ottawa Senators in a game that was postponed from April 15 due to the Boston Marathon bombings.

The Bruins can clinch the Northeast Division this weekend by earning one more point than the Montreal Canadiens. While the Bruins face the Capitals and Senators, the Canadiens visit the Toronto Maple Leafs in their one remaining game.

Here is Boston's projected lineup for their game against the Capitals:

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
