TORONTO – Good morning from the Air Canada Centre, where the Bruins will wrap up their four-game road swing tonight against the Maple Leafs.
The Bruins recalled Matt Bartkowski on an emergency basis yesterday. Johnny Boychuk, who hurt his right leg in practice yesterday, is in question. Boychuk was walking normally this morning. It’s unknown whether Boychuk will participate in the morning skate.
The Bruins must also decide on whether Rich Peverley will return to the lineup. Peverley was a healthy scratch for Thursday’s 2-1 win over Ottawa.
