Miroslav Satan may have played his last game as a Bruin.

He, along with Shawn Thornton, Steve Begin, Mark Recchi and Trent Whitfield are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents come July 1st. It is unclear if the Bruins want Satan or any of the other UFAs back for 2010-11. The 42-year-old Recchi has the best chance to return to Boston next season if he opts not to retire. Stay tuned.

Miroslav Satan was an unlikely star for the Bruins in their first round series against Buffalo.

Boston won their first round series in six games and Satan contributed with two game-winning goals and five points. Satan's stock fell considerably after his stint with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2008-09 didn't work out. He ended up signing with the Bruins in early January and went onto score a mediocre nine goals and 14 points in 38 games. However, he was worth the cost of his contract for his efforts against Buffalo alone.

Miroslav Satan scored the game-winning goal in Boston's 3-2 overtime win against Buffalo in Game Four of its opening round playoff series on Wednesday night.

Satan's overtime winner was his second goal of these playoffs, and is exactly why the Bruins took the chance and signed him as a free agent midway through this season. DacidKrejci recorded his second point of the series with the Bruins’ first goal in the Game Four loss to the Sabres, cutting Boston’s deficit to one goal just two minutes in to the third period. It didn’t take much longer for the Bruins to erase the deficit completely, as Patrice Bergeron scored his second in two games on home ice in this series. It is a good sign for Boston that their top two centers have performed since the injury to center Marc Savard, and with his return possibly before the end of this series, the Bruins are playing well while getting healthy.

Miroslav Satan has been one of the only Boston players who has been a scoring threat as of late.

He has scored three goals in the Bruins' last three games and is enjoying his pairing with center David Krejci. We suggest you put Satan in your starting lineup Saturday against Carolina if he is not already active.

Miroslav Satan scored his 9th goal of the season as Boston beat Buffalo 3-1 Thursday night.

Satan scored a crucial goal that led to the Boston win. He has been a big time signing for the Bruins, being a key player in many games down the stretch. Dennis Wideman and Zdeno Chara both scored for the Bruins as well.

Miroslav Satan scored both Boston goals in a 2-1 overtime win against the Maple Leafs Saturday night.

Signed in early January to help the offensively starved Bruins score some goals, Satan had disappeared down the stretch during a five-game goalless drought before finally netting two in the win over the Maple Leafs, including the game winner in overtime. Boston is ranked dead last in the NHL in goals for with a 2.36 average, and Satan’s eight goals in 34 games has done little to help, except on this night.

Satan took part in Boston's optional practice on Saturday and stayed on afterwards for some additional work, but he's still not ready to return.

Despite participating in practice on Friday, Miroslav Satan (groin) may sit out Saturday's game against Montreal.

The Bruins will likely be cautious with Satan, especially since his replacement Brad Marchand played so well against the Flyers on Thursday. We would keep Satan on reserve until after the weekend.

Miroslav Satan (groin) took part in Boston's Friday practice.

Satan missed Thursday's game because of the injury. "We'll see how it is," coach Claude Julien said. "It will be a medical thing with the trainers. He practiced today. It's about making sure because when you get in a game situation, you've got to exert a little bit more. You don't want to be risking losing a player for a long time. We'll see what comes out of this." We'll keep you posted.
