MONTREAL – Good morning from the Bell Centre, where the Bruins could overtake the Canadiens tonight for first place in the Northeast Division. Montreal has 53 points. The Bruins have 52.
Chris Kelly is with the team. Kelly, who hasn’t played since March 11, is considered day-to-day. Kelly has not been activated from injured reserve.

Storylines: The Bruins could be adding more forward depth. Carl Soderberg’s playoff run with Linkoping in the Swedish League ended Friday. Linkoping lost to Skelleftea and is out of the playoffs. Soderberg had expressed interest in joining the Bruins once his team’s run concluded… Patrice Bergeron will miss his second straight game because of a concussion… Tomas Plekanec is questionable because of a groin injury. Plekanec didn’t play in Montreal’s last game against Philadelphia… Tim Peel and Kelly Sutherland will be the referees. Steve Miller and Jonny Murray will be the linesmen.
