by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

OTTAWA - Joakim Nordstrom has done a little bit of everything so far this season.

Signed to a two-year deal over the summer, the Swedish forward was expected to team up with Chris Wagner to help replace Tim Schaller as the left wing on Boston's fourth line.

But circumstances have dictated otherwise to this point in the Bruins' season.

As Injuries Mount, It's Back to Next Man Up

Like they did a year ago, Bruins embracing that mentality

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

OTTAWA - For the Bruins, it's starting to feel a bit like déjà vu.

Boston had its share of injuries to key players a year ago, but battled through en route to a 50-win, 112-point season, which left them just shy of the top spot in the Eastern Conference. They reached those heights because they embraced a next-man-up mentality, never doubting their ability to claim 2 points, despite being shorthanded.

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

VANCOUVER - Like most the night before their NHL debut, Urho Vaakanainen didn't get much sleep.

Missed opportunities early on cost Boston in 3-2 setback

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

EDMONTON, Alberta - The Bruins accomplished much of what they set out to on Thursday night in Edmonton. After a subpar defensive effort in their loss to the Flames during the front end of the back-to-back, Boston was looking for a bounce-back effort.

They got one. To an extent.

Chara's Drive Remains in Full Gear

As Bruins captain reaches milestone game, his work ethic is still unmatched

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

EDMONTON, Alberta - Jake DeBrusk turned 22 years old on Wednesday. When the winger was born in 1996, his father, Louie, was one of the National Hockey League's toughest customers.

He fought 115 times across his 11-year NHL career, including one in April 1998 against Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, who was then just 21 and in his rookie season with the New York Islanders.

Heinen Back in As Part of Lineup Shuffle

Winger will skate as second-line left wing for B's visit to Edmonton

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

EDMONTON, Alberta - Bruce Cassidy is shuffling things up for the Bruins' tilt with the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night. Three of his four lines will be different from the trios he put forth in Boston's loss to Calgary on Wednesday, with the biggest alteration being the insertion of Danton Heinen back into the lineup.

Heinen was a healthy scratch for the last two games, but will return to action against the Oilers as the second-line left wing, alongside David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk.
