Chiarelli: Kessel a “good bet” to play tomorrow night

Bruins General Peter Chiarelli confirmed to WEEI.com this afternoon what winger Phil Kessel [1] and coach Claude Julien [2] both alluded to after Bruins practice this morning: Kessel is likely to make his return to the B’s lineup tomorrow night against the New Jersey Devils [3] at the TD Banknorth Garden [4]. Kessel has been out since Jan. 10 with a case of mono, but was cleared by team doctors yesterday to play in game action.

“I’m hoping. I think there’s a good bet that he’s going to play,” said Chiarelli. “It may be a game time decision, but I’m hoping that he’ll play.”
