Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Guarding cage Sunday
Swayman will get the starting nod Sunday in Carolina.
Swayman continues to alternate starts with Linus Ullmark on a regular basis. The 24-year-old Swayman has gone 7-3-0 with a stellar 1.92 GAA and .933 save percentage over his last 10 outings. He's improved to 19-6-4 with a .921 save percentage overall. This will be his first start against the Hurricanes this season but he did stop six shots in relief against them Nov. 25.... See More ...

Bruins' Hampus Lindholm: Sitting Sunday
Lindholm (undisclosed) will sit out Sunday's contest against Carolina.
Lindholm will miss at least one game due to a nagging injury. He has produced 10 goals, 49 points, 143 shots on net, 89 blocks and 69 hits in 71 contests this campaign. Lindholm will be replaced in the lineup by Jakub Zboril.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Brad Marchand: Out Sunday
Marchand is dealing with "nagging injuries" and will not play Sunday against Carolina.
With the Bruins cruising through the 2022-23 campaign, this is likely just a day of rest for Marchand. The 34-year-old has 63 points in 64 games this season but he's currently riding a nine-game skid without a goal. He'll be questionable for Tuesday's matchup with Nashville until more information is available.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Patrice Bergeron: Not playing Sunday
Bergeron (illness) won't play Sunday against Carolina.
Bergeron will sit out at least one game, which will bring his five-game point streak to an end. He had three goals and five assists during that span to give him 57 points in 72 contests this campaign. David Krejci will center Boston's top line during Bergeron's absence.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Oskar Steen: Up with Boston
Steen was recalled from AHL Providence on Sunday.
Steen will be an option for Sunday's game against Carolina. He has notched 14 goals and 31 points in 62 AHL contests this season. Steen picked up two goals and four assists in 20 appearances with Boston during the 2021-22 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Facing Lightning
Ullmark will get the home crease versus Tampa Bay on Saturday, Conor Ryan of Boston.com reports.
Ullmark is having a season for the ages, as he is 35-5-1 with a 1.95 GAA and .937 save percentage. He's the prohibitive favorite for the Vezina Trophy as a result of his sensational play. Ullmark will face the Lightning, who are ninth in NHL scoring, averaging 3.41 goals per game this season.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' A.J. Greer: Suspended one game
Greer was suspended for one game by the NHL Department of Player Safety for cross-checking Mike Hoffman of the Canadiens on Thursday.
Greer will sit out Saturday against Tampa Bay and will be eligible to return Sunday versus Carolina. Greer picked up a five-minute major for the cross-check, as well as a game misconduct. He has five goals, 11 points and 85 PIM in 52 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' A.J. Greer: Hearing with Player Safety
Greer will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday for cross-checking Mike Hoffman of the Canadiens on Thursday.
Greer received a major for cross-checking and a game misconduct for his misdeed late in the second period. Greer has five goals and 11 points with 85 PIM in 52 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Connor Clifton: Two helpers in Thursday's win
Clifton recorded two assists in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
He rounded out his night with two hits, two PIM and a plus-3 rating. Clifton has two multi-point performances in the last three games, a surprising surge from a blueliner who had only three points over his prior 17 contests, but playing for a team on pace to set an NHL record for regulation wins can have that effect. On the season, the 27-year-old has five goals and 21 points over 68 games with 187 hits, 101 blocked shots and a plus-24 rating.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' David Pastrnak: Closing in on 50
Pastrnak scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-2 victory over the Canadiens.
His tally early in the second period was his 49th of the season, establishing a new career high for the 26-year-old. Pastrnak has 11 games left on the Bruins' schedule to reach 50 for the first time, and he's only five points shy of his first career 100-point campaign.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Tyler Bertuzzi: Pots first goal with Boston
Bertuzzi picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
His first goal in a Bruins jersey came on a fluke play, as his centering attempt from behind the Montreal net banked off a defender's leg and Jake Allen's pad before finding twine, but it counts all the same. Bertuzzi has five points in his last six games and appears to be settling in nicely as a source of secondary offense for Boston.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: Sharp in win over Habs
Swayman stopped 29 shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
Both pucks that beat him came on Montreal power plays, as Swayman otherwise had an answer for everything fired his way. The 24-year-old netminder extended his win streak to three games but saw his shutout streak end at 164:33 late in the first period, and he boasts a 1.69 GAA and .940 save percentage through six starts in March. Swayman's play has been good enough lately that Boston coach Jim Montgomery hasn't ruled out using a goalie rotation in the playoffs rather than sticking with Vezina favorite Linus Ullmark....

Bruins' Jeremy Swayman: In goal Thursday
Swayman will get the starting nod at home versus the Habs on Thursday, Conor Ryan of Boston.com reports.
Swayman and Linus Ullmark continue to split the workload with the duo taking every other game. That hasn't stopped either from putting together some good performances, especially Swayman who is riding back-to-back shutouts over Winnipeg and Buffalo coming into Thursday's contest. Even with Swayman getting half the starts now, the net will almost certainly belong to Ullmark in the postseason with Swayman reduced to a true backup role.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Hampus Lindholm: Two helpers against Sens
Lindholm collected two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 2-1 win over Ottawa.
All the scoring came in the first period, and Lindholm spurred a rally from a 1-0 deficit by helping to set up David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk for tallies. The blueliner is back in his early-season form, and over his last 13 games Lindholm has racked up four goals and 12 points. The 29-year-old has already established a new career high in points with 48 as he closes in on his first 50-point campaign, and he leads the NHL with a massive plus-46 rating.... See More ...

Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Notches win No. 35
Ullmark stopped 40 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Senators.
The goal that spoiled his shutout came midway through the first period, as the netminder briefly lost track of the puck behind the net and got beaten on a quick wraparound. Otherwise, Ullmark was his usual brilliant self. Since the beginning of February, he's solidified his claim to the Vezina Trophy by going 10-1-0 with a 2.07 GAA and .937 save percentage, and he now has an NHL-high 35 wins.... See More ... See Less
