El SEGUNDO, Calif. – A weary Bruins squad caught up on some much needed rest Friday after a hard-fought 2-1 shootout win in San Jose Thursday. A handful of players did receive treatment and skate at the Kings practice facility.
Defenseman Mark Stuart  remains hopeful to return to the lineup against the Kings Saturday after missing a month with a broken sternum.
Center David Krejci  remains day-to-day with an undisclosed injury suffered Wednesday in Anaheim.
Fellow center Patrice Bergeron  will not play Saturday, but he is making a steady recovery after breaking his thumb Jan. 4 in New York. Bergeron was set to be sidelined two weeks, and could be ready when the B’s return home to host Ottawa Monday afternoon.
‘It’s looking good, it’s coming along a day at a time,’said Bergeron who is now able to work with the puck after initially being confined to simply skating. ‘It’s more of a [situation] of seeing how I feel, I’m pretty much able to do it, so it’s good.”
