PHILADELPHIA – Good morning from the Wells Fargo Center, where the Bruins will play the Flyers this afternoon in the first of two back-to-back games. The Bruins are coming off their last two-day break of the season.
Johnny Boychuk (right leg) will be a game-time decision. For now, we’ll assume Boychuk will miss his fourth straight game.

Storylines: Kaspars Daugavins is on the active roster. Daugavins will wear No. 16. The Bruins claimed Daugavins on waivers from Ottawa… This will be a matchup of the league’s best power play against the NHL’s top penalty kill… The Flyers have even more injuries. Andrej Meszaros (rotator cuff) and Braydon Coburn (shoulder) are out today… Philadelphia has some players that interest the Bruins. Ruslan Fedotenko would be a good depth addition for the third line. The Bruins have always liked Matt Read, but the youngster would command a bigger package in return… The Flyers are 2-6-2 in their last 10 games. Their playoff chances are slim… Stephen Walkom and Justin St. Pierre will be the referees. Tim Nowak and Shane Heyer will be the linesmen.
