Bruins center David Krejci, who was held out of Saturday’s practice with the flu and was not on the team flight to Atlanta, will not play on Sunday vs. the Thrashers, according to multiple reports. Claude Julien had left open the possibility of Krejci or Jordan Caron, also out with the flu, potentially meeting the team in Atlanta, but neither ended up travelling, according to the Boston Globe. Sunday’s game will be the second straight contest Caron has missed, as he was kept out of Friday’s 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes after getting sick on Thursday.
With the two out, Jamie Arniel will make his NHL debut. Arniel was recalled on an emergency basis on Saturday. In 19 games this season, the 21-year-old Arniel has nine goals and seven assists, leading the Providence Bruins with 16 points.

|Jordan Caron and David Krejci won’t travel with Bruins||at 12:50 pm ET|
WILMINGTON — Jordan Caron and David Krejci, both of whom were missing from Saturday’s practice with the flu, will not travel with the Bruins as they head to Atlanta for Sunday’s game vs. the Thrashers. In delivering the news, Claude Julien added that the two could join the team if they felt better, but that the team will have to consider calling somebody up from Providence should neither player be good to go.
Julien added that Marco Sturm also has the flu, which was why he was kept out of practice. Caron has been sick since Thursday and did not play in Friday’s 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes.
WILMINGTON — The Bruins were without Jordan Caron‘s services in Friday’s 3-0 loss to the Hurricanes due to the 20-year-old winger’s case of the flu. He was missing again at the onset of Saturday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena. David Krejci was also kept out with the flu, with Marco Sturm the only other missing Bruin. Here’s a look at the forward lines lines:
Lucic – Bergeron – Horton
Seguin- Wheeler – Recchi
Paille – Savard – Ryder
Marchand – Campbell – Thornton
|Jordan Caron misses Friday matinee with flu||11.26.10 at 12:04 pm ET|
The Bruins have just informed that Jordan Caron has the flu, which is why he was not on the ice in warmups and why he is not in Friday’s lineup. He is not a healthy scratch.
Daniel Paille is in the linuep in place of Caron. The lines appear to be as follows:
Wheeler – Krejci – Ryder
Lucic – Bergeron – Horton
Marchand – Campbell – Recchi
Paille – Seguin – Thornton
Thomas, 36, is 11-1-1 with a 1.46 goals against average in 14 starts. He leads the league with a .955 save percentage and is tied for the league lead with four shutouts. He most recently made 31 saves in the team’s 3-1 victory over the Panthers in Florida on Wednesday.
Julien also said the the lines “will be kind of the same” as they were in the third period of Wednesday’s game. With the team trailing, 1-0, in the third period, Julien reunited the Blake Wheeler - David Krejci - Michael Ryder line of years past, sticking Patrice Bergeron between Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton. Gregory Campbell centered Jordan Caron and Mark Recchi, while Tyler Seguin returned to center on a line with Brad Marchand and Shawn Thornton.
In warmups, however, it was Daniel Paille skating with Seguin and Thornton, with Marchand jumping up to Campbell’s line. Caron was not on the ice, an indication he could be a healthy scratch for the first time since the season-opener on Oct. 9 in Prague.
