Bruins battling flu, team still expects Johnny Boychuk back for Tuesday

Four players were missing from Monday’s practice in Calgary due to the flu, according to the team [1]. Zdeno Chara, Kevan Miller, Chad Johnson and Gregory Campbell were all absent.

Campbell played Sunday’s game with the flu [2], while Miller left the game in the final minutes after a hit from behind from Dion Phaneuf.

Johnny Boychuk did take part in the skate but said he “didn’t feel awesome,” according to the Boston Globe [3]. Boychuk has been out with a sprained back since last Thursday, but Claude Julien is still optimistic he’ll be in Tuesday’s lineup [4].

As of Monday afternoon, the Bruins had not made any more callups. If they have to recall a defenseman from Providence, Zach Trotman would be a logical option.
