Storylines: The Bruins could take over first place in the Northeast Division. Both clubs have 45 points … The Bruins went back to their usual lines late in Monday’s game. For now, we’ll assume Milan Lucic is back with David Krejci and Nathan Horton … The Bruins should have fresher legs. The Canadiens are coming off a 1-0 road loss to Pittsburgh last night … Carey Price was in goal against the Penguins. The Bruins could see Peter Budaj for the second time this season tonight … Brandon Prust (shoulder) will not play … Greg Kimmerly and Chris Rooney will be the referees. Tony Sericolo and Peter Morin will be the linesmen.
