The Bruins brought back Trent Whitfield on an emergency recall yesterday so that they could leave for California today with 13 healthy forwards.
However, over the course of their three games in the Golden State that number might expand to 14 forwards. Rich Peverley is also on the trip and might be ready to get into on of Boston’s games against either San Jose, Los Angeles or Anaheim.
While a week ago there were probably several candidates to be the healthy scratch, the Bruins’ recent two-game winning streak has been highlighted by better play from several of the previously slumping forwards. Taking out one of the current forwards to make room for Peverley could turn out to be one of head coach Claude Julien’s toughest and most important decisions of the season.
So readers of TheBruinsBlog.net, here’s your chance to give Julien a little advice by answering the following poll question:
