Johnny Boychuk D BOS 3 Days
Johnny Boychuk (back) skated Monday at practice for the first time since getting hurt against Montreal on Dec. 5.
"I didn't feel awesome. Haven't skated in, what, five days," he said. "At least I got out there and moved around and got back on the ice." The Bruins do not have an extra defenseman in Calgary and coach Claude Julien is hopeful that Boychuk will be ready to go Tuesday night versus the Flames.
