Bruins preparing for big homestand

WILMINGTON – The Bruins have completed a brief on-ice session at Ristuccia Arena. They have three games at home this week, including tomorrow against the Islanders. Tomorrow marks the first match of a five-game homestand.

“We’re 3-5 at home. That’s not good enough for a team like us,” Claude Julien said. “We need to get better in that area as well. We’ve got to make our building a hard building for teams to come in and play in.”

Today’s lineup:

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Jordan Caron-Chris Kelly-Benoit Pouliot
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg-Joe Corvo
Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid
Steven Kampfer

Tim Thomas
Tuukka Rask

* Rich Peverley remained off the ice. Peverley has missed the last three practices.
