Halak will start Saturday vs. the Avalanche.

Halak stopped all 24 shots that he faced in the Bruins' shutout win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday. Halak has been superb in his last three starts, going 3-0-0 while stopping 86 of 89 shots (.966 SV%). A suddenly healthy Avalanche team represent a tough matchup for Halak, but the Bruins have been terrific on home-ice, with Halak going 4-0-2 with a 1.95 GAA, .940 SV% and one shutout at the TD Garden.

Bergeron (lower-body) will not play on Thursday; expected to practice on Friday.

Everything remains pretty quiet on the Bergeron injury front, but head coach Bruce Cassidy is hopeful he'll be back at practice on Friday. If that's the case, it would open the door for a possible return to the lineup Saturday vs. the Avalanche.

Halak will start Tuesday vs. the Hurricanes.

Halak allowed two goals on 28 shots in the Bruins win over the Rangers last Friday. Halak has won each of his last two starts while stopping 62 of 65 shots (.954 SV%) and finished November at 3-0-2 with a 2.12 GAA and .940 SV%. The Bruins rarely lose so it's hard to bench Halak, but the Hurricanes come in having won five of their last six road games while scoring 3.33 goals per game.

The Bruins have assigned John Moore (shoulder) to Providence (AHL) on a conditioning assignment.

Moore has not played yet this season but was recently medically cleared for contact, so he heads to the AHL to get back up to game-speed before making his season debut with Boston. Moore had 13 points (4G / 9A) in 61 games a season ago.

Marchand (flu-like symptoms) will play on Sunday.

Marchand missed Saturday's practice with flu-like symptoms but will play Sunday vs. the Canadiens. This is obviously huge news for the Bruins, who are already without Patrice Bergeron on their top-line. Marchand comes into the game with 18 goals and 25 assists (43 points) in 26 games and has three points (1G / 2A) in two games vs. Montreal this year.

Rask will start Sunday vs. the Canadiens.

Rask stopped 33 of 34 shots in the Burins win in Ottawa on Wednesday. With Jaroslav Halak facing the Rangers on Friday, Rask will take on the Canadiens for the second time this season. He has historically struggled with Montreal and allowed five goals on 31 shots in a 5-4 loss in their first meeting. This time around, the Habs come in on the tail-end of a back-to-back and are winless in their last seven.
