Boston’s Boychuck Day-To-Day, Will Travel To NY

Johnny_Boychuck_Bruins_2013Johnny Boychuk was among a large group of Bruins players that weren’t on the Ristuccia Arena ice Friday afternoon prior to traveling to Long Island for a Saturday night tilt against the New York Islanders.

Claude Julien said that Boychuk is “day-to-day” with what appeared to be a lower body injury, and will make the quickie road trip with the rest of his Bruins teammates.

That’s a positive sign, though it won’t shock anyone if the Bruins allow him plenty of rest while working Matt Bartkowski into the Black and Gold lineup for a couple of games.
