Frank Vatrano (foot) joined his teammates for Tuesday's practice.

"Any time a guy joins a team for practice, even with the red jersey ... it's good to see, a step in the right direction for Frank," coach Claude Julien said. "That's the best way for him right now to get up to the pace of your game, because it's going to take a while." He could be available later this month if his recovery goes well.
Dec 7 - 9:22 AM

Jimmy Hayes got back in the lineup Monday night.

However, he was limited to just 7:33 of ice time. Hayes posted two shots, two hits and two penalty minutes. He has one goal and no assists in 23 appearances this year.
Dec 6 - 9:29 AM

Zdeno Chara logged 23:31 of ice time in his first game back from a lower-body ailment.

He was credited with three hits, two blocks and a minus-1 rating. "I felt pretty good for the first game back," Chara said. "It was a good game to come back. Obviously, Florida is a very good skating team, and it is always challenging to play them. But I had no issues, and it felt good to be back, and obviously it was a big win." He was reunited with rookie defender Brandon Carlo in Boston's 4-3 OT win over Florida.
Dec 6 - 9:26 AM

David Krejci registered a pair of assists in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over Florida.

He had a helper on Tim Schaller's icebreaker in the first period and he set up David Pastrnak's game winner in the extra session. After a sluggish start to the season, Krejci has produced three goals and nine assists in the last 13 contests.
Dec 6 - 9:20 AM

Tuukka Rask saved 27 of 30 shots in a 4-3 overtime victory over the Florida Panthers Monday night.

Rask has now come out on top in three of his last four starts. That gives him a 14-4-1 record, 1.68 GAA, and .939 save percentage in 19 contests.
Dec 5 - 10:09 PM

David Pastrnak scored two goals, including the game winner, in Boston's 4-3 overtime win over Florida Monday night.

Pastrnak now has 15 goals in just 21 contests this season. He's already matched his 2015-16 goal total, which he recorded over 51 games. David Backes and Tim Schaller accounted for the Bruins other two markers. David Krejci assisted on two of the Bruins' four markers.
Dec 5 - 10:05 PM

Matt Beleskey will miss six weeks because of a knee injury.

Beleskey was injured in Saturday's game against the Sabres and he didn't play in tonight's game against Florida. Expect him to return in mid-January. The Bruins forward has two goals and three assists in 24 games this season.
Dec 5 - 9:57 PM

Joe Morrow is a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Morrow has one assist and a minus-3 rating in 11 games. Matt Beleskey (hip) will also sit out tonight's game.

Dec 5 - 7:01 PM

Zdeno Chara will return to the lineup on Monday.

He ended up missing six games in all. Chara is currently skating on Boston's first pairing with Brandon Carlo. He has one goal and six assists in 19 games. The Bruins captain averages 22:41 of ice time per game.
Dec 5 - 6:49 PM

Tuukka Rask will probably get the nod on Monday.

Rask was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He has a 1.60 GAA and .941 save percentage in 18 contests this season.
Dec 5 - 11:45 AM

Zdeno Chara (lower body) will probably return on Monday.

Chara has missed six straight games due to the injury. If Chara does play, he will probably be paired with Brandon Carlo.
Dec 5 - 11:27 AM

The Boston Bruins have reportedly engaged in trade discussions involving Ryan Spooner with multiple teams.

Trading Spooner would make some sense as it seems that Boston's depth, particularly at the center position, has hurt his value to the Bruins. It also recently seemed that he was in coach Claude Julien's doghouse and Spooner has spent some time on the fourth line. That being said he had 49 points last season and at the age of 24 still has some untapped upside. A change of scenery might be in all parties' best interest. The Carolina Hurricanes, San Jose Sharks, and New York Islanders have shown interest in Spooner, according to CSN New England's source.
Dec 5 - 10:30 AM

Anton Blidh showed well in his NHL debut Saturday night against Bufflao.

Blidh made an impact in the 10:12 he was on the ice. He took three shots on goal and administered a team-high four hits. Boston coach Claude Julien had some nice tings to say about the 21-year-old rookie. "I thought he worked hard, he competed hard, he was disciplined, going to the right places and making the right things happen," said Julien. "There’s all the reasons in the world to trust a guy who does that, whether he’s got experience in this league or not". Blidh could get some extra playing time with Matt Beleskey sidelined. That said Bidh was never a real offensive force in the Swedish League or in the AHL.
Dec 4 - 9:13 AM

The injury sustained Saturday night by Matt Beleskey is to his right hip and could sideline him for at least a few games.

He took a clean hip check from Sabre defenseman Taylor Fedun and left the game with seconds left in the first period. Beleskey will be re-evaluated Monday. For now consider him day-to-day.
Dec 4 - 8:51 AM

Matt Beleskey left Saturday's match with Buffalo early with a lower body injury.

The wing absorbed a hit from Taylor Fedun that primarily effected his right leg, which is the likely injury. Nothing is known just yet, but we'll keep you posted on his status. Consider him day-to-day for now.
