It’s Tuesday and a game day in New Jersey. Currently plagued by injury issues, the Boston Bruins are hoping to get some of their regular players back tonight and later this week.
After missing the past five games with a lower body injury sustained during the game against the Habs, Jake DeBrusk is finally on the mend and looking to rejoin the lineup. Of course, he will be a gametime decision.
Another forward looking to return is Brett Ritchie. His last game was also against the Habs, a game during which he went missing both figuratively and literally. He along with Patrice Bergeron are gametime decisions.
Torey Krug will not be in the lineup tonight but is likely to return later this week.
Finally to round out the team, forward Brendan Gaunce and defenseman Urho Vaakanainen were recalled from Providence.
