KANATA, Ont. – Here are the projected lineups for Wednesday night when the Boston Bruins meet the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place. Both teams held optional skates after the Sens faced the Sabres in Buffalo on Tuesday night, while the Bruins played Los Angeles at home.
Milan Michalek is day-to-day with a concussion. The injury occurred during a collision with Karlsson on Tuesday night against Buffalo. Filip Kuba (shoulder) and Sergei Gonchar (upper-body) both skated this morning, and are also listed as day-to-day. Coach Paul MacLean hopes to have at least one of them back in the lineup Friday.
Zdeno Chara (leg) skated today, and says he “felt okay, but probably most likely will not (play) – but it’s a game time decision.” Gregory Campbell, who fractured his foot Dec. 10 against Columbus, did not travel with the team. Jordan Caron is expected to be a healthy scratch.
When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
