Johnny Boychuk out, Rich Peverley back in

Johnny Boychuk will not play tonight. Boychuk was hit by an Aaron Johnson shot on the right leg during practice yesterday. Boychuk is day-to-day, according to Claude Julien. Matt Bartkowski will make his season debut.

Rich Peverley, a healthy scratch against Ottawa, will return to the lineup tonight. Peverley will replace either Ryan Spooner or Jordan Caron on the No. 3 line. The guess here is that Caron will be the healthy scratch.

Tonight’s possible lineup:

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Jay Pandolfo-Ryan Spooner-Rich Peverley
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Andrew Ference
Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
Aaron Johnson-Matt Bartkowski

Anton Khudobin
Tuukka Rask
