As per the Bruins' official Twitter account:
Loui Eriksson said he passed his test yesterday afternoon; cleared to play and Julien said he'll "definitely" be in tonight ^CS— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) November 5, 2013
Eriksson has missed five games since being concussed by Buffalo's John Scott on Oct. 23. He has been skating with the team for a few days now, and is apparently healthy enough to go.
Is he being rushed back? One can only hope the Bruins aren't pressing for an Eriksson return for public relations purposes, but only time will tell.
The B's will get another body back tonight as well, this time on the blue line: Johnny Boychuk is ready to play, according to numerous Bruins beat-writers:
Boychuk said he's feeling better and will play tonight.— Joe McDonald (@ESPNJoeyMac) November 5, 2013
Boychuk was injured when he got hit hard into the boards against Anaheim, missing the rest of that game and all of the B's loss to the Islanders.
With two healthy bodies back in the lineup, Claude Julien will have to do some juggling. Jordan Caron may return to the press box, but reports indicated that Caron was taking some rushes in Brad Marchand's spot this morning. Julien may be preparing to give the struggling Marchand the Milan Lucic healthy scratch treatment.
The B's and Stars will drop the puck tonight at 7.
