The night will center around the return of Johnny Boychuk, who has two goals and four assists for six points in six games this season after being traded to the Islanders.

Chandler Jones only player not at Pats practice

Chandler Jones was missing from the start of Patriots practice on Thursday, according to reports.

The defensive end, who was the only player on the active roster not spotted Thursday morning at the workout in the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse, will reportedly be sidelined for the next month because of a hip injury he suffered last week against the Jets.

New England continues preparing for a Sunday afternoon date with the Bears at Gillette Stadium.

Report: Revis overslept, apologized to Belichick

What happened to cornerback Darrelle Revis on Tuesday is apparently becoming clearer.
