Chris Kelly will not play against Canadiens

Chris Kelly will not play tonight. Kelly remained on the ice with Wade Redden and Anton Khudobin after the morning skate. Kelly continues to improve and could be back in the lineup next week. The Bruins host Carolina on Monday.

“It’s a fine line between pushing and being reckless,” Kelly said. “It’s feeling better every day. I’ll skate again tomorrow and see how it feels on Monday.”

Tuukka Rask will make his second straight start.
