Bruins defenseman Steve Montador is out for this afternoon’s matinee showdown against the Central Division’s second-place Chicago Blackhawks [1]. Montador came down with the flu on Friday, and Shane Hnidy will jump back into action as the sixth defenseman.

Tim Thomas [2] will again get the start in net for the Bruins.
