Tyler Seguin walked to his stall in the home dressing room at TD Garden Wednesday, saw a group of reporters from both Boston and Edmonton waiting, and jokingly said he would not be answering questions about Taylor Hall

The Bruins recalled Zach Hamill from Providence on an emergency basis on Wednesday evening. Hamill, 23, will be present for Thursday's morning skate and could play against the Oilers Thursday night.

This move serves as insurance in case Rich Peverley is unable to play. Peverley missed Monday's game, but returned to practice Wednesday and is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. With Daniel Paille likely out due surgery on his broken nose, Benoit Pouliot already figures to be in the lineup.

Bruins forward Rich Peverley returned to practice Wednesday after missing Monday's game against the Islanders with an undisclosed injury. 

"I feel good," Peverley said after the practice. "Day-to-day, but it feels good."

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following statement Tuesday regarding forward Daniel Paille, who took a slap shot to the face Monday against the Islanders:

"Daniel Paille has been diagnosed with a broken nose and facial lacerations after the injury he sustained in our game Monday night. He will undergo surgery on Wednesday, November 9 at Mass General Hospital in Boston to repair the injury. Dr. Thomas Dodson will conduct the procedure. Following the surgery, he is expected to be listed as day-to-day."

It wasn’t a week ago that Nathan Horton was sitting at his stall at TD Garden, downtrodden amidst a quiet start to the season and revealing some interesting details of where he was mentally not right.

Bruins coach Claude Julien offered little update on forward Daniel Paille, who left Monday's 6-2 win over the Islanders in the third period after getting hit in the face with a slapshot from New York defenseman Steve Staios. 

"He's going to be seen by a specialist tonight," Julien said. "Obviously a puck hit him in the face, and in the nose area. We'll probably know more tomorrow, once he's seen by a specialist."

Nathan Horton and Tyler Seguin scored goals 29 seconds apart in the first period and Tuukka Rask stopped 24-of-26 shots to record his first win of the season as the Bruins pulled away and beat the Islanders, 6-2, Monday night in the opener of a five-game homestand at TD Garden. After starting the season 3-7-0, the defending Stanley Cup champs have scored 18 goals in winning three straight, with Monday night's triumph lifting them over the Islanders and out of the cellar in the Eastern Conference. 

Bruins coach Claude Julien said following Monday's morning skate that Rich Peverley will not play against the Islanders at TD Garden. Peverley was not on the ice for the morning skate and has missed the team's last three practices despite playing Saturday against the Maple Leafs.

Julien said that the injury Peverley is dealing with is minor, though he did not disclose any details. With Peverley out, Benoit Pouliot will make his return to the lineup after missing the last three games. 

Tyler Seguin recorded his first career hat trick and Tim Thomas stopped 24 shots as the Bruins rolled to a 7-0 win over the Maple Leafs in Toronto on Saturday night. It was the B's second win over Toronto this season and the first time they have had back-to-back victories this season.

Will it be Jordan Caron or Benoit Pouliot in the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs? The latter is healthy and ready to return from his illness, but the former may have nabbed the job for himself for the time being.
