Boychuck (concussion) returns to action

Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk returned to game action against the Islanders on Saturday, his first appearance since suffering a concussion on a big hit by Chris Neil in the Bruins' 5-3 loss to the Senators on Feb. 25.

He missed two games, Tuesday's rematch with Ottawa and Thursday's overtime win versus the Devils.

Boychuk had been skating with the Bruins since Wednesday, and said Thursday that he wasn't expecting to miss much time.
