WILMINGTON, Mass. -- After skating on his own Thursday, Bruins center Marc Savard said he was targeting the Jan. 29 game in Buffalo for a return to the lineup. After practice Friday, however, he wouldn't rule out an earlier return.
"I don't know. We haven't talked about it," Savard said in the Ristuccia Arena dressing room when asked if he could make a comeback from his slight MCL tear as early as this weekend. "We'll see; we'll talk about it. Right now, it's still next Friday. But I don't know."
