Wingels will draw into the Bruins' lineup Wednesday against the Lightning, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, Wingels will get the Game 3 nod over Tim Schaller due to his physicality and experience. While skating on the Bruins' fourth line, Wingels' fantasy upside is limited, with the 30-year-old winger coming off a regular season in which he tallied nine goals and 17 points in 75 games (57 with Chicago and 18 with Boston).

Wingels is now healthy enough to play after missing Saturday's playoff game against the Maple Leafs with an undisclosed injury.

EDGE Analysis

That said, with Riley Nash (ear) in line to return to action Monday night against Toronto, it looks like Wingels will be a spare forward for Game 3, along with Ryan Donato and Brian Gionta.

Wingels (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports. "Wingels is still being evaluated by doctors today," coach Bruce Cassidy noted Friday. "Tomorrow we'll get a better read on him...I wouldn't rule him out, but we'll see in the morning."

EDGE Analysis

Wingels didn't practice Friday on the heels of being forced out of Thursday's win over Toronto after being checked from behind by Nazem Kadri. With Riley Nash (ear) still unable to practice fully, rookie Ryan Donato is poised to enter the Boston lineup Saturday if Wingels can't play.

Wingels (undisclosed) was not present for practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Wingels was forced out of Thursday's 5-1 playoff win over the Maple Leafs in the third period after being checked from behind by Nazem Kadri. With Wingels hurting and Riley Nash (ear) iffy for Saturday's Game 2, veteran Brian Gionta or rookie Ryan Donato could re-enter the Bruins' forward mix in short order after being made healthy scratches Thursday.

Wingels exited Thursday's 5-1 win over the Maple Leafs due to an undisclosed injury.

EDGE Analysis

Wingels suffered the injury when Toronto's Nazem Kadri hit him from behind while he was on his knees alongside the boards in the third period of Thursday's contest. Kadri received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit, and will almost certainly be hearing from the NHL Department of Player Safety in the coming days. Wingels wasn't able to return to the contest, and coach Bruce Cassidy didn't have an update on the veteran winger's status during his post-game press conference. The severity of Wingels' injury has yet to be determined, but if he's unable to suit up for Saturday's Game 2, Ryan Donato or Brian Gionta will likely take his spot in the lineup.

Wingels (hand) will return to the lineup Saturday against the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Wingels missed two games after suffering a hand injury, but it appears he's ready to roll with two games remaining before the postseason. Considering Wingels' playing time is limited with Boston -- just 11:54 per game -- and he doesn't see time on the power play, expectations for production should be limited as the season rounds out.

Wingels (hand) will sit out Thursday evening against host Florida.

EDGE Analysis

This means rookie Colby Cave will remain in the lineup. A Wingels absence isn't likely to shake up the fantasy world seeing as how he's only produced four points over 16 games since arriving in Boston following a trade from Chicago.

Wingels (hand) is a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Colby Cave is on hand if Wingels can't play Thursday, but based on his presence at practice Wednesday, we'd expect Wingels to be available for fourth-line duty Thursday night, barring any setbacks.

Wingels (hand) skated on the Bruins' fourth line at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Wingels missed Tuesday night's 4-0 loss to the Lightning, but as coach Bruce Cassidy previously suggested, the forward's hand issue wasn't expected to be a lingering concerning. Look for Wingels to return to action Thursday against the Panthers, with the Bruins no doubt looking to make some lineup adjustments in the wake of Tuesday's sub-par effort.

Wingels (hand) won't play Tuesday night against the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Per coach Bruce Cassidy, Wingels was slashed on the hand during Sunday's game against the Flyers. It's enough of an injury concern to sideline Wingels for at least one tilt, but it's not expected to be a long-term issue. Wingels' absence paves the way for Colby Cave to center the Bruins' fourth line Tuesday, with Noel Acciari sliding up to the team's third line.
