Bruins forward Milan Lucic said following news of his suspension that he respected NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan's decision, but that he was disappointed to have to miss Monday's game against the Canadiens. 

Shanahan suspended Lucic Monday for his hit from behind on Flyers' forward Zac Rinaldo in Saturday's 6-0 Bruins win. He said in a video explaining the suspension that while the hit was not "egregious," the Lucic's track record influenced the decision. 

According to a tweet from TSN's Bob McKenzie, Bruins forward Milan Lucic has been suspended for one game by the league for hitting Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo from behind in Saturday's 6-0 win in Philadelphia. Lucic was initially given a five-minute major and a game-misconduct for the hit.

Both the Bruins and Canadiens are unsure of what their lineups will look like Monday night. Rich Peverley, Gregory Campbell and Milan Lucic are all question marks for Boston, while the Habs might be without one of their biggest villains in P.K. Subban. 

The Bruins recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron Monday after the two were sent to Providence for the weekend. 

It was the second time this month the B's have sent the two young players to the AHL, as it has allowed the healthy scratches to get game action to remain fresh. Caron had an assist in two games this weekend for Providence.

I’m slowly beginning to think that the Bruins have good goaltending. 

Now, now – don’t write off this absurd notion just yet. Hear me out.

 The Bruins ended the red-hot Flyers' seven-game win streak in convincing fashion Saturday, chasing goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov and leaving Wells Fargo Center with a 6-0 victory.

Tim Thomas' 30th career shutout and a Gordie Howe hat trick from Zdeno Chara led the B's, who have now won four games in a row. 

The Bruins announced Friday that they have sent forward Jordan Caron and defenseman Steven Kampfer to Providence.

Much like when they were sent down on the first of the month, the move allows the two players who are usually the team's healthy scratches to get some game action. The two will play for Providence on Saturday and Sunday. 

The fact that the B's sent Kampfer down suggests captain Zdeno Chara, who has missed the last two games with a leg injury, will be ready to play Saturday against the Flyers in Philadelphia. 

An NBC spokesperson told Richard Deitsch of that former Bruins player and current NHL analyst Mike Milbury will not appear on the network while addressing allegations that he assaulted a 12-year-old hockey player who was in a fight with his son during a game in Brookline last week.

Former Bruins player and coach and current television analyst Mike Milbury was charged with assault and battery on a child, threats to commit a crime and disorderly conduct after an incident at a youth hockey game last week in Brookline, according to multiple reports.

Bruins forward Adam McQuaid was fined $2,500 by the NHL Thursday for kneeing Senators forward Nick Foligno. He was not suspended. 

McQuaid extended his left leg and kneed Senators forward Nick Foligno late in the second period in the Bruins' 5-2 win over the Senators. He was given a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct. 

The Bruins' defenseman has not been suspended in his three years in the NHL.
