NESN and NBC Sports hockey analyst Mike Milbury made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday. To hear the interview, go to the Dale & Holley audio on demand page.

 

The main topic of conversation was the controversy involving NHL discipline boss Colin Campbell, whose inflammatory e-mail about Marc Savard caused a firestorm this week.

 

The Bruins ended their losing streak at home (0-2-1 over their last three at the Garden) on Monday night, defeating the Devils, 3-0, thanks to a 28-save shutout by



Claude Julien said Monday night that Johnny Boychuk and David Krejci will accompany the Bruins as they travel to New York to face the Rangers on Wednesday night. Krejci, working his way back from a concussion suffered Nov. 6, continues to skate with the team while Boychuk, who suffered a fractured forearm on Oct. 23 against the Rangers, could return to game action.

 

"Boychuk is day-to-day now," Julien said. "Depending on how his wrist is or is arm is, there's always a possibility we could see him in Wednesday's game."

 

Tim Thomas stopped all 28 shots for his fourth shutout this season and Mark Recchi added a pair of assists on offense as the Bruins snapped a three-game home-ice losing streak with a 3-0 win over the New Jersey Devils Monday night at TD Garden. 

 

NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly defended disciplinarian Colin Campbell on Monday after e-mails suggesting a bias for his son, Bruins forward Gregory, surfaced online.

 

According to an Oilers blogger out of Edmonton, e-mails sent by NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell back in 2007 suggest that he was upset with high-sticking calls on his son, Gregory (who now plays for the Bruins), and that he felt Bruins center Marc Savard was the "biggest faker going."

 

 The Bruins' goaltenders have been saying "that's hockey" an awful lot lately, and it hasn't been following poor individual performances.



Tim Thomas suffered his first loss of the season as the Senators defeated the Bruins, 2-0, at TD Garden on Saturday night behind a shutout from Brian Elliot. With the loss, Thomas is now 8-1-0 in 10 starts this season. 

 

Bruins center David Krejci, out since suffering a moderate concussion last Saturday against the Blues, skated with recovering teammate Marco Sturm on Saturday morning, according to the Boston Globe's Fluto Shinzawa.

 

Claude Julien said on Friday that Krejci had ridden the stationary bike, which at the time was the most energy-intensive activity he had done following the concussion.

 

WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk, out since Oct. 23 with a fractured forearm, was one of only five Bruins to take the ice at Ristuccia Arena on Friday. He was joined by fellow rehabbing players Marco Sturm and Marc Savard, as well as goaltenders Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas. It was the first time he has been able to shoot on goalies since the injury. 

 

The prognosis for Boychuk's return was four weeks, and he hopes to still be on track for a return by the latter part of this month.
