Storylines: Tyler Seguin was benched the last time the Bruins visited Winnipeg. Seguin missed a team breakfast and meeting earlier in the day… The Bruins made a splash with Winnipeg (nee Atlanta) before last year’s trade deadline, acquiring Peverley and Boris Valabik for Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart. The Bruins might have some interest in Johnny Oduya, a left-shot defenseman who played for Claude Julien in New Jersey… Hennessy hasn’t played in the NHL since the 2008-09 season. Hennessy has one career goal in 20 games, all for Ottawa… The Jets are coming off a 4-3 shootout win over Minnesota last night. Winnipeg will have an optional morning skate after traveling back from St. Paul late last night… Justin St. Pierre and Dan O’Halloran will be the referees. Lonnie Cameron and Steve Miller will be the linesmen.
