Bruins General Peter Chiarelli confirmed to WEEI.com this afternoon what winger Phil Kessel  and coach Claude Julien  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  at the TD Banknorth Garden . 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.”
