SENATORS: D Wade Redden (knee), out at least a week; RW Martin Havlat (hamstring), out indefinitely.

NOTEWORTHY:

The Bruins could have a big boost in their lineup with the return of D Brian Leetch, who suffered a knee injury on Nov. 1 and was expected to be gone for a month. The former Norris Trophy winner has been skating all week and had hoped to play yesterday vs. the visting Flyers, but was held back. "I was pushing to play (yesterday)," said Leetch. "So, I'm hoping they'll let me play (tonight)." Leetch didn't accompany the Bruins to Toronto for their game earlier this week vs. the Leafs, opting to stay in Boston and skate with assistant coach Ray Bourque ... Expect to see G Andrew Raycroft start for Boston ... The Bruins called up LW Eric Healey from Providence to suit up yesterday against the Flyers with RW Glen Murray out of the lineup. W Colton Orr and D Kevin Dallman were Boston's scratches yesterday ... Ottawa is 2-0 vs. Boston this season.
