Johnny Boychuk recovering well from concussion

Johnny Boychuk participated in an optional morning skate today. He was one of the last players to leave the ice after ramping up the work at the end. It was a harder session than yesterday’s solo skate with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides.

“I’m feeling pretty good,” Boychuk said. “I felt good out there. Just take it day by day, I guess.”

Boychuk can recall Chris Neil’s hit from Saturday. Boychuk said he felt like he got run over by a train. Boychuk acknowledged it was a clean check.

Assuming Boychuk continues to progress, he could practice tomorrow with his teammates. Boychuk will not play tonight.

* Greg Zanon will make his Boston debut tonight. Mike Mottau will be the healthy scratch.
