Bruins' Anton Stralman: Hits waivers
Stralman was placed on waivers Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Stralman has been credited with three shots on goal, 10 blocks and 12 hits in eight games with Boston this season. Derek Forbort (finger) is close to a return to the lineup, so Stralman could be on his way to the AHL.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Craig Smith: Expected to sit Tuesday
Smith (upper body) is not expected to be available to play Tuesday versus the Lightning, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
Coach Jim Montgomery said Monday that Smith isn't ready yet despite the Bruins forward feeling better. Smith was injured in Friday's contest against Carolina.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Derek Forbort: Could return Tuesday
Forbort (finger) stands a chance to return to the lineup Tuesday versus Tampa Bay, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Forbort, who was on the ice for Monday's practice, has to clear some final tests before he receives the green light to play. He has been out since Nov. 1 after undergoing surgery on his right middle finger.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Trent Frederic: Possible for Tuesday
Frederic (shoulder) could be available to return Tuesday versus Tampa Bay, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
Frederic took part in Monday's practice after missing the past two games. He has three goals, three assists, 22 hits and 21 shots on net in 18 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Ready to return
Ullmark (upper body) has been cleared to return to the lineup, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
Ullmark, who was on the ice for Monday's practice, was injured in Friday's game against Carolina. Thanks to a speedy recovery, he will be available for Tuesday's contest against Tampa Bay. However, it is unclear at this time if he will start or be Jeremy Swayman's backup.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' David Krejci: Lights lamp twice against Canes
Krejci scored two goals in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Hurricanes.
His two tallies in regulation brough the Bruins back from a 2-0 deficit, setting the stage for David Pastrnak to score the winner in OT. Krejci has been on fire lately, racking up six goals and eight points over the last five games -- an impressive surge considering he'd gone the prior nine games without lighting the lamp at all....

Bruins' David Pastrnak: Makes history with OT winner
Pastrnak scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added an even-strength assist in Friday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Hurricanes.
The 26-year-old's blast from the faceoff circle in OT didn't just give Boston the win -- it set a new NHL record for consecutive home wins by a team to begin a season, as the Bruins are a perfect 12-0-0 at TD Garden. For his part, Pastrnak extended his point streak to nine games with the performance, a stretch in which he's piled up six goals and 13 points, with much of that production (four goals, four helpers) coming on the power play....

Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Picks up win in relief
Swayman turned aside all six shots he faced after replacing Linus Ullmark (upper body) during the third period of Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Hurricanes.
Swayman entered the game with the Bruins down 2-1, but David Krejci pocketed his second goal of the afternoon a few minutes later to tie it up before David Pastrnak handed the 24-year-old netminder his fourth win of the season with his power-play blast from the faceoff circle in OT. Swayman's 2.92 GAA and .890 save percentage through seven appearances on the season look rough, but if Ullmark's injury ends up being serious, the younger goalie will get plenty of opportunities to improve on those numbers....

Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Sustains upper-body injury
Ullmark won't return to Friday's game against Carolina after sustaining an upper-body injury in the third period.
Ullmark appeared to suffer the injury when Boston's Connor Clifton fell on him while Ullmark was already down to make a save. It looked like Ullmark was favoring his right arm as he skated off the ice, according to Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now. Ullmark stopped 28 of 30 shots before exiting the contest. Jeremy Swayman took his place in net and will likely be leaned on heavily if Ullmark misses any significant period of time.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Craig Smith: Exits Friday's game
Smith left Friday's game against Carolina and won't return because of an upper-body injury.
Smith had one shot and four PIM in 5:12 of ice time before exiting the game. He has a goal, three points and six PIM in 12 contests this season. If he ends up being unavailable for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay and Trent Frederic (shoulder) isn't ready to return for that contest, then Boston would need to call up a forward from the AHL....

Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Starts versus Carolina
Ullmark will tend to the home crease against Carolina on Friday, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Ullmark has been outstanding this season, going 13-1-0 with a 1.96 GAA and a .935 save percentage. He leads the NHL in all three categories and is currently the odds-on favorite to take home the Vezina Trophy. He will take on the Hurricanes, who are scoring at a 2.80 goals per game clip this season.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Pelted by Panthers
Swayman stopped 26 of 30 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Panthers.
Florida's final tally was scored into an empty net. Swayman held his own in the first and third periods, but a three-goal eruption by the Panthers in the second was the difference. In total, three of the four goals against the 23-year-old goalie came on the power play, so the final result can't really be pinned on him. Linus Ullmark remains entrenched atop the depth chart for the Bruins, and Swayman's 3.08 GAA and .885 save percentage through six appearances don't give the team much incentive to change things up in the crease....

Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Set to start Wednesday
Swayman will guard the road net against Florida on Wednesday, according to Matt Porter of The Boston Globe.
Swayman has a 3-1-0 record, 2.82 GAA and .890 save percentage in five games this season. He played Nov. 19 for the first time since suffering a lower-body injury and saved 17 of 18 shots in a 6-1 win against Chicago. He'll try to build off that strong start, but the Blackhawks are in 32nd place offensively with 2.44 goals per game, while the Panthers are 11th with 3.32.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Trent Frederic: Won't play versus Florida
Frederic (shoulder) won't play Wednesday against Florida, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Frederic was injured in Monday's game versus Tampa Bay. He will be replaced in the lineup by Craig Smith.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Trent Frederic: Dealing with shoulder problem
Frederic missed Tuesday's practice session due to a shoulder injury, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Frederic was forced to leave Monday's clash with Tampa Bay with what was originally labeled an upper-body injury. At this point, Frederic should probably be considered doubtful to suit up versus the Panthers on Wednesday, though he hasn't been officially ruled out yet. If Frederic does miss out, Craig Smith should take his place in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
