  • Boston Bruins: Coach Jim Montgomery on DeBrusk: “He’s not eligible to play tomorrow but we think that he’s gonna be back sooner than we expected when it originally happened so that’s good news.”

Fluto Shinzawa: Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk is listed as day-to-day. He should be ready to go by the end of next week.
