Milan Lucic (undisclosed injury) and Shane Hnidy (eye) will not play tonight.
The Bruins have not called up any help from Providence, so it’s assumed that Aaron Ward (charley horse), who skated this morning, will be back in the lineup. Also, with Lucic out, the Bruins are down to 12 healthy forwards.
* The Eastern reserves will be announced at noon. It’s assumed that there will be healthy Boston representation.
