Jaromir Jagr will not play tonight when the Bruins face the Capitals. Jagr didn’t practice Friday and remained in Boston because of flu-like symptoms.
With Jagr unavailable, Kaspars Daugavins will most likely be in uniform. Daugavins hasn’t played since April 13 against Carolina.
The Daugavins-for-Jagr switch should be the only lineup change. The Bruins are still fighting for the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference, so they will not rest any of their varsity players.
Tonight’s expected lineup:
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Rich Peverley
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Carl Soderberg-Chris Kelly-Kaspars Daugavins
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
Wade Redden-Adam McQuaid
