The Bruins are keeping forward Rich Peverley out of the lineup Friday night against the Panthers due to an undisclosed injury, coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate.
Peverley has a nagging injury that is helped by rest, and has not practiced this week. He last took the ice in Monday's 3-2 win over Montreal. The Bruins' next game after Friday is Wednesday, so Peverley can have up to eight days off as he recovers.
"We made the decision to go forward with the fact that he's going to get basically a whole week before the next game and only miss one game," Julien said. "That was the whole plan. Our schedule gets heavy after that, so this was a good time to take that approach."
In 30 games this season, Peverley has six goals and 19 assists for 25 points. Zach Hamill skated in his place on the third line in Friday's morning skate.

NFL analyst Michael Lombardi, in his weekly interview on the Dennis & Callahan Show, suggested that he couldn't see an AFC team other than the Patriots or Steelers advancing to the Super Bowl. Lombardi suggested that the two teams feature an offensive explosiveness that no other team can match in the conference.
"I think Pittsburgh and New England are the two teams that, one of those teams is going to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl," said Lombardi. "I think the Steelers are explosive and dangerous. They get James Harrison back. If they get Lamar Woodley back, that helps them. ... To play the Steelers, you have to have a certain kind of team to be able to spread them out.
"The Patriots wear you down offensively. They’re so relentless in their ability to score points that you can’t match them point for point. ... For all those guys who tell you on television and all the experts who say that you win with...
According to CSNNE.com, citing a league source, forward Mickael Pietrus -- who was released by the Phoenix Suns -- is leaning "heavily" towards signing with the Celtics once he clears waivers on Saturday. The agent for Pietrus, Bill McCandless, told the website that the Celtics are on the player's short list of desirable destinations.
"He's only 29, so he's not like Charles Barkley or some other older players running around, chasing a championship," McCandless said. "But he wants to be with a playoff team, and have a chance to contribute."
Pietrus, the 11th overall pick in the 2003 draft, averaged 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 19.4 minutes per night while playing 57 games for the Magic and Suns last season. The Celtics currently have an open spot on their...
The latest Tim Tebow controversy centers around a cardboard cutout of the Broncos quarterback that an individual inserted in a nativity scene in a Florida park. A county staffer, responding to a handful of complaints, last week removed the image of the former University of Florida star that had been placed next to the baby Jesus.
However, on Monday Tebow was returned to his spot alongside the Three Wise Men, with Polk County communications director Mianne Nelson saying its presence apparently did not violate county policy.
“There is probably some verbosity with the policy, but in consulting with the ACLU and with their blessing their approval is to leave it there this year," Nelson said.
The Tebow image was created by the individual who erected the entire nativity display, former Polk County Commissioner Randy Wilkinson.
"Tebow was a missionary and has gone all around the world,” Wilkinson explained. “He...
According to the Associated Press, the Red Sox were hit with a $3.4 million luxury tax bill by Major League Baseball. That fee was assessed based on the team's 2011 major league payroll as calculated for competitive balance tax purposes (a formula that reflects the average annual salaries paid to all players who spent time on the 40-man roster, along with medical benefits).
This year, the luxury tax threshold was set at $178 million. Because the Sox surpassed the luxury tax threshold for the second straight year, they were penalized at the rate of 30 percent. The $3.4 million bill, in turn, means that the team's payroll (as calculated for CBT purposes) was approximately $189 million, the largest ever by a non-Yankees team.
The Sox and Yankees were the only two teams in the majors that exceeded the luxury tax payroll threshold this year. It...
