Zdeno Chara (knee) will likely travel with the Bruins on the team's four-game road trip next week.

However, GM Peter Chiarelli isn't sure if Chara will be ready to play at some point during the trip. Having said that, it's a good sign if he does end up accompanying the team.

Chris Kelly is projected to be available for Friday's match against Winnipeg.

He has missed the past two games with an undisclosed injury. Kelly has eight points in 21 games this campaign.

GM Peter Chiarelli doesn't expect David Krejci (groin) to be out much longer.

"I would think he’ll be back in short order," said Chiarelli. "Just what short order, I don’t know. It's an on-again, off-again thing. I would expect him back. It's something where you can feel 100 percent one day and then you can feel a little distress. That's what happened on a couple of occasions." The Bruins seem to be confident that Krejci will get over this, but he's missed more games than he's played so far which isn't very encouraging. Having said that, it's still too early to give up on him.

Seth Griffith has been recalled by the Boston Bruins.

Griffith only ended up spending a day in the minors. He has five goals and seven points in 18 NHL games this season.

Alexander Khokhlachev has been returned to AHL Providence.

Khokhlachev was on the ice for just 2:53 minutes on Monday. He has five goals and 16 points in 15 AHL games in 2014-15.
Nov 25 - 6:37 PM

Jordan Caron has been sent to the minors.

Caron only played in one game during his NHL recent and he logged 3:35 minutes in that contest. He was taken in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, but he's struggled to establish himself with Boston and at this point, he's running out of time.

A source told the Boston Herald on Monday that David Krejci is battling a pulled groin.

An ailing hip was reportedly what was bothering Krejci, but a groin problem can be related to that as well. Either way, it has kept him out of the lineup for 12 games this season. Krejci has been in and out for the first part of the year, but coach Claude Julien said that "it's not something we're going to have to manage all year." That's good news but a healthier Krejci is all that matters to fantasy owners. Consider him day-to-day for now because that's the way the Bruins are treating his injury.

2014 first-round pick David Pastrnak made his NHL debut Monday night.

Coach Claude Julien liked what he saw from Pastrnak during his 7:53 of ice time. "Well, we had to look at him, right?" Julien said. "Plus, I thought he had good legs, so I put him on a couple lines here. And obviously you can see he's a pretty dynamic player. He had that one shift with Bergy's line. March and him had a real good shift there in the O-zone. I liked his game. I know he probably didn’t get a ton of ice time, but when he was out there I liked what he did." He's played very well at the AHL level this year and getting some NHL practices as well as some games will be good for his development.

Joe Morrow earned his first NHL point in Monday's overtime loss to Pittsburgh.

He scored a goal in Boston's 3-2 defeat and finished the game with a plus-2 rating. Morrow has appeared in 12 games this season for Boston and now he's finally gotten on the board offensively.
Nov 25 - 8:07 AM

Goaltender Tuukka Rask turned in a good game but he and the Boston Bruins fell 3-2 in overtime to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night.

Rask stopped 28 shots before Evgeni Malkin beat him on a 2-on-1. This was 32 seconds into the OT period. Rask's record is now 10-6-1. His goals-against average is 2.40. His save percentage, .915. Rask could easily have come out of Monday's game with a win as Boston had two goals disallowed. He, of course, remains a solid fantasy option in net.
Nov 24 - 10:26 PM

Boston forward Milan Lucic scored his fourth goal of the season in the Bruins' 3-2 overtime loss to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Monday night.

Lucic now has four goals on the season. He also had three shots on goal and three hits in the game. The Bruins' other goal came from defenseman Joe Morrow, his first in the NHL. Boston had two goals disallowed in this one. The Bruins thought they scored the tying goal when defenseman Kevan Miller took a wrist shot from the left point that Patrice Bergeron tipped and then batted the rebound out of the air with a backhand swipe. The goal was waved off on the ice after officials ruled that Bergeron's contact with the puck was played with a high stick. Another Bruins goal was disallowed when it was ruled that Boston forward Carl Soderberg directed the puck into the net with his glove.
Nov 24 - 10:21 PM

Matt Fraser will be a healthy scratch Monday night when the Bruins host the Penguins.

After dressing up Saturday versus the Islanders, the Bruins winger will have to watch from the stands Monday night with Brad Marchand returning to the lineup. Fraser has recorded three goals in 14 games played for Boston so far. Marchand's return also sent Seth Griffith back to the minors.
Nov 24 - 5:34 PM

Brad Marchand has been taken off injured reserve by the Bruins.

He was listed as a game-time decision this morning, but it looks like he'll be back in the lineup on Monday against Pittsburgh. Marchand has been absent from the past three games due to an undisclosed injury.
Nov 24 - 5:10 PM

Seth Griffith has been returned to the minors.

He has five goals and two assists in 18 games with Boston this season. Griffith was sent down so the Bruins could activate Brad Marchand from injured reserve.
Nov 24 - 5:08 PM

Zdeno Chara (knee) skated on his own for the first time in a month on Monday morning.

"It's a start, yeah, it's a start," coach Claude Julien said. "Again, he’s certainly not close to being [with us] yet. It's his first time in a long time, and it's always encouraging to see your player back on skates, that's for sure." He suffered a torn PCL back on Oct. 23.
