Shelley got two games, so he's definitely out. However, Carcillo's back after missing 12 games with a sprained knee. Carcillo wasn't available in either the 2 games we've played against Philly so far. Philly has no significant injuries right now, although that game against Pittsburgh might change that.

We've only played one game against the Bruins this year (only 5 more to go! Meanwhile, how many bloody Sens games have we had? Oh yeah, 4 of 6 already!). Boston had neither Krejci or Savard playing in that game. We will need Pleks and Gomez playing at their best for sure. Apparently, Seguin is out with the flu. Otherwise the Bruins are healthy right now.

Despite the fact Gomez didn't practice today, I still think he plays mid-week. Last year when he came back from injury - around the same time - he started playing really well. We need him to do that again.

I think the lines against Philly will be:

Cammy - Pleks - AK
Patches - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - Halpern - Moen
Pyatt - Eller - Lapierre

Although it looks like JM is considering switching Moen & AK, I really wish he wouldn't. Moen is NOT a top 6 forward.

No word yet on Spacek. If he can't play I think we'll see:

Hammer - PK
Gill - Gorges
Picard - Weber

If Spacek does play, it'll be interesting to see who JM chooses to sit. For me, it's Picard, who hasn't been great lately.
