Boychuk skates; game-time decision

BOSTON -- After missing two games with a foot injury, Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk participated in the team’s morning skate on Wednesday at TD Garden and will be a game-time decision against the Montreal Canadiens.

“Uncertain,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “He’s going to be reevaluated today, and so far he hasn’t been cleared.”

This morning was the first time Boychuk has been on the ice since he took a shot off his foot during practice last Friday in Ottawa. He was wearing a protective guard over his skate this morning and showed no ill effects from the injury.
