Defenseman Adam McQuaid will make his return to the Bruins lineup in Tuesday night's game against the Senators. McQuaid was considered a game-time decision after missing Monday's game in Pittsburgh with an undisclosed injury.
With McQuaid back in the lineup for the B's, rookie Matt Bartkowski, who made his NHL debut on Monday, will be a scratch.

Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty has been named the Rookie of the Year by Pro Football Focus. The site, which deals in statistical analysis of the NFL, had three analysts look at the grades accumulated by every rookie over the course of the 2010 season, and came up with their Top 10. The Rutgers product took top honors.
"McCourty wasn’t seen by many coming out of the draft as even worthy of a first-round pick — in fact, the talk was that his primary impact this year would be on special teams," they wrote. "Instead he’s played like a top-10 cornerback league-wide, even with some tricky games, and has been one of the keys to New England’s great play down the stretch."
McCourty, who finished tied for second in the league with seven interceptions, beat out St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford (second), Cleveland cornerback Joe Haden (third) and Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (fourth)....
Bruins forward Milan Lucic will not play Tuesday night against the Senators at TD Garden due to an undisclosed injury suffered Monday night in the team's 4-2 victory over the Penguins. It will be Lucic's first missed game in a season in which he's led the Bruins with 16 goals through 41 games.
"He's going to be a scratch for tonight," coach Claude Julien said prior to the game, "and hopefully it's a day-to-day situation."
Nathan Horton will make his return to the lineup after missing the last two games with what Julien would only describe as "discomfort." Defenseman Adam McQuaid, who also missed Monday's game with an undisclosed injury, is a game-time decision.
"He skated this morning and felt pretty good, so we're going to make that decision after the warmup," Julien said.
If McQuaid is unable to go, rookie Matt...

According to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com (via twitter), coach Doc Rivers said "there has been no discussion" by the Celtics about bringing back forward Rasheed Wallace.
Wallace spent the 2009-10 season with the Celtics, averaging 9.0 points and 4.1 rebounds a night during the regular season. He retired after his team's seven-game loss to the Lakers in the NBA Finals.
Wallace has reportedly said that he would look to come out of retirement to rejoin the Celtics this year. But Celtics GM Danny Ainge said recently on The Big Show that it would be difficult to imagine adding Wallace to the roster.
"I’m not sure there’s room for Rasheed unless we just have a whole...
The guys have even more reaction to Deflategate and if this is actually a showdown between Bill and Roger.
Tom E. Curran calls the boys during his layover in Denver and gets right into the Deflategate craziness. Tom talks about his knowledge of the situation including his thoughts on if the NFL was indeed trying to set up and catch the Pats in the act. He gets into the relationship between Belichick and the league office, Belichick and Kraft and the actual game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Greg and Steve discuss the Deflategate debacle with callers and give their theories as to what went down in Foxboro last week against the Colts. Both guys think that Pats may be guilty of doing something to the balls, but that so do most other teams. Will Belichick and Brady be punished? Not if the NFL doesn't have proof, which it's looking more and more like they don't.
