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:
Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Rich Peverley
Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – Tyler Seguin
Daniel Paille – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton
Carl Soderberg - Chris Kelly – Kaspars Daugavins
Zdeno Chara – Dennis Seidenberg
Andrew Ference – Johnny Boychuk
Wade Redden – Adam McQuaid
Scratches: Dougie Hamilton, Aaron Johnson, Jay Pandolfo
Injured: Nathan Horton (upper-body), Jaromir Jagr (flu)
