The debate surrounding who should take the vacant roster spot left by Gregory Campbell appears to have ended at Friday’s morning skate.
Gregory Campbell’s injury probably means the splitting of Chris Kelly and Rich Peverley as linemates and the shift of Peverley from wing to his natural position of center. And this change could be coming at just the right time for Peverley.
The Boston Bruins were back on the practice ice on Friday, and Rich Peverley was back to a familiar spot.
With the NHL Playoffs just a few hours away for the Boston Bruins, head coach Claude Julien insists his Game 1 lineup against the Toronto Maple Leafs still isn’t set.
The Bruins kick off their post season run tonight at the Garden when they host the Toronto Maple Leafs. The guys were joined by Bruins radio color analyst Bob Beers Wednesday morning to discuss the series with Toronto starting tonight.
The wait for the playoffs to begin for the Boston Bruins is nearly over, and Claude Julien appears to be making a couple of notable changes to his lines.

The Bruins’ penalty kill once again saved the day, as it has for much of the season, with a perfect 4-for-4 performance.
