The Bruins are in the frigid tundra that is Winnipeg to face the Jets tonight, not that it's warm and sunny here in Boston either. Spring? Never heard of it.
Boston will 99.9% most likley go without David Krejci today. He's listed DTD with what we're assuming is just a sweet bruise on his knee. The team yesterday said there's no busted bones so that's a relief for the team and fans. In Krejci's place will be Ryan Spooner, both on the roster and on the lines:
Julien confirms Spooner to start b/w Lucic and Horton. Could adjust if things don't go well.

Only other feasible alternative we can think of would be to put Peverley on the first line C and let Spooner play with Caron and Pandolfo on the third. But letting Spooner loose with Horton and Lucic should be interesting. Horton has looked real hungry for goals the last few games and Spooner's still looking to register his first NHL point. Against the Jets, that's a good chance he could do it.
Someone suggested Seguin-Caron-Spooner on a line and we're not even sure why anyone would want to blow up the best line in the NHL. But whatevs. You do what you do in NHL13.
Spooner was also practicing on the power play soooo there's that.
Also for those wondering, Soderberg's team is leading the series 2-1.
