Lucic out for a month

As you probably know, Milan Lucic was injured in Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Wild. Today it was announced that Lucic will be out for about a month with a high-ankle sprain.

In today's noon game against the New Jersey Devils the Bruins lost 2-1 in a shootout. On Saturday at 7pm EST the Bruins play against the Ottawa Senators.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.

Lucic returns, Bruins win, Savard deal close

Bruins forward Milan Lucic returned to the lineup last night but that didn't stop another last minute meltdown of the Bruins as the Thrashers tied the game in the final minute of the third period. The game went to a shootout and with Patrice Bergeron's awesome deke goal and Tuukka Rask stopping all three Thrashers, the Bruins got the two points. Lucic missed 14 games but looked good in the game as he was playing physical and had some good offensive opportunities.

According to a report from Canada's RDS, Marc Savard is close to signing a 7-year contract worth $39 million ($5.7 million per season). Earlier the Bruins offered a 3-year contract worth $6.5 million. This is good news for Bruins fans to get Savard locked up as you can see the Bruins offense without him is not as good.

Look for Tuukka Rask to play again tonight against the Sabres as Tim Thomas has an unidentified minor injury.

Right now the Bruins are 9-8-4 with 22 points, which is 3rd place in their division and 11th place in the conference.

David Krejci diagnosed with H1N1

Today Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli announced that David Krejci has been diagnosed with H1N1 and will be away from the team until he is symptom free and fever free for 24 hours.

"Like most people, we are taking many precautions to try to prevent our players and staff from contracting the H1N1 virus," said Chiarelli. "Our medical staff is working with David to get him healthy as soon as possible, and our players and staff will continue to take precautions with hopes of preventing the spread of the virus to others in the organization."

The Bruins play the Montreal Canadiens tonight, their first meeting this season and it should be good.

The Bruins recalled forward Mikko Lehtonen from the Providence Bruins (AHL) on an emergency basis.

Also today Peter Chiarelli announced that the Bruins have signed goalie Tuukka Rask to a two-year contract extension through the 2011-12 season.
