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.
Both Campbell and Peverley skated Monday in the team's optional morning skate. Campbell fractured his foot last Saturday against Columbus, while Peverley has an ailment that is healed by rest. Given that, Claude Julien said the team is considering taking advantage of the light schedule this week and giving him a game or two off.
Lucic had his hearing Monday with Brendan Shanahan for Saturday's hit from behind, but will not be made available to the media until a ruling comes down.
For the Habs, Subban is a game-time decision with the flu. Travis Moen will play after missing the last two games with a lower-body injury.
Expect Tim Thomas to be in net Monday against Carey Price....
Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning, following Sunday's 41-23 victory over the Broncos in Denver. Brady completed 23-of-34 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, but he wasn't ready to say it was his most accurate passing game of the season.
"There were some good things. There were some things I wish I would have done better," he said. "I think offensively when we score 41 points it feels pretty good. Everyone was pretty happy on the flight home. I certainly was. It was a very satisfying day. You play a team that's won six straight and you go on the road in a very important game -- basically for the course of the season, to really clinch a title, regardless of what the Jets would have done yesterday. So, there was a lot of stake. And we knew going into the week, and we prepared hard. And to come out of it with a victory, I think everybody in the locker room was really...
The Bruins recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Jordan Caron Monday after the two were sent to Providence for the weekend.

Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey wasn't happy with his team's loss to the Texans Sunday. Shockey also was upset about what he considered a lack of decorum by Houston players during the national anthem.
"I was pretty upset in the way that they weren't showing respect to America during the national anthem," Shockey said. "There were about 10 players that didn't put their arms across their chest. This is America. You should at least respect America."
Responded Texans linebacker DeMeco Ryans: "If he's so patriotic, why was he looking at our bench instead of the flag? Where did he come up with the number 10? Was he counting? Why was he paying attention to us during the national anthem?"

Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow had arguably his best day as a starting quarterback, completing 11-of-22 passes for 194 yards while running for 93 yards and two touchdowns. Still, he contributed to Denver's 41-23 loss to the Patriots by fumbling the ball twice (including one on which Denver lost possession), including a fumble in a critical series in which the Patriots took control of the game in the second quarter.
"We kept fighting for the entire day. That’s something that I’m extremely proud of. We did have things going pretty well early, scored in our first three possessions, felt like we were moving the ball good," said Tebow. "Then we put it on the ground and that’s something you can’t do vs. a great team with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Besides that, we were right there with them."
Tebow suggested that even though Denver's six-game winning streak is now over, the Broncos will continue to...
