According to ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, the Bruins have claimed forward Kaspars Daugavins off waivers from the Senators.

Daugavins, who Bruins fans will remember for his zany shootout attempt against Tuukka Rask earlier this month, has one goal and two assists for three points and a minus-6 rating in 19 games for Ottawa this season.

For what it’s worth, Daugavins is 1-for-3 on shootout attempts this season.

Wednesday’s morning skate featured more tweaking of the Bruins’ line as they prepare to host the Canadiens in a contest for first place in the Northeast Division. Claude Julien has moved Milan Lucic back with David Krejci and Nathan Horton, while Brad Marchand skated on the third line with Rich Peverley and Jordan Caron.

The lines were as follows:

Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Nathan Horton

There’s no goalie controversy with the Bruins – at least certainly not in the eyes of coach Claude Julien.

"Now that I’ve been given this opportunity to be a big part of the puzzle, as much as I’ll have pressure from you guys, you definitely put pressure on yourself to perform. It’s up to me to elevate my game and bring it to a certain standard and that’s the responsibility of being an athlete. I know what that responsibility is now.



Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron scored while Tuukka Rask stopped Nikolai Kulemin in the third round of the shootout as the Bruins beat the Maple Leafs, 3-2, in overtime Monday night at TD Garden. Rask stopped 23-of-25 shots on the night. The Bruins were without defenseman Johnny Boychuk, scratched earlier in the day with a foot injury.

Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk will miss his second straight game when the B’s host the Maple Leafs Monday night at TD Garden, Claude Julien said Monday morning.

Boychuk left Friday’s practice with an apparent foot injury. He did not practice Sunday after missing Saturday’s game in Toronto. In his place, Matt Bartkowski played 13:05, posting a minus-2 with one shot on goal. Bartkowski will play in his second consecutive game Monday

According to Renaud Lavoie of RDS, Flames forward Jarome Iginla has listed the Bruins as one of four teams for which he would waive his no-trade clause.

The morning after the Bruins concluded their 1-3-0 road trip, Claude Julien shook up his lines for Sunday’s practice. All four lines were different, with Milan Lucic receiving the biggest demotion by going from the first line to the third line.

The lines were as follows:

Brad Marchand – David Krejci – Nathan Horton Daniel Paille – Patrice Bergeron – Tyler Seguin Milan Lucic – Rich Peverley – Jordan Caron Jay Pandolfo – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton

The Bruins assigned center Ryan Spooner back to Providence Sunday. Spooner, who was recalled Monday following David Krejci‘s knee injury against the Penguins, played in the last three games for the Bruins.

Spooner, a second-round pick in 2010, didn’t collect a point in his stint with the B’s and has no points and an even rating in four NHL games this season.

The Bruins can only hope that March is their worst month of the season.
