Plagued By Injuries, The Senators Have Come Up With Success In Contributions From Unexpected Places. It's All On The Line Tonight Against A Healthy Bruins Team.

Gregory Shamus

<p><b> The Bruins host the surprising Senators tonight at TD Garden, 7PM:</b><//p>

<ul>

<li> Claude Julien sees benefit in a team-first resilience and depth which has allowed the Senators to win despite losing star players to injury. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/bruins/post/_/id/11027/senators-battling-despite-injuries">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> Brad Marchand has been sucessful at net front, the Senators fight through injuries, and Aaron Johnson, Jay Pandolfo, and Lane MacDermid project to be the healthy scratches.

<li> Tyler Seguin has soundly answered the call to improve his two-way game. [<a href="http://bostonherald.com/sports/bruins_nhl/2013/02/tyler_seguin_s_two_way_game_solid">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

<li> Brad Marchand is having a terrific season, and could be looking at competing for Canada in the Olympics. [</a href="http://thehockeywriters.com/brad-marchand-bostons-little-ball-of-everything/">TheHockeyWriters</a>]</li>

<li> Sure, the third line has struggled a bit, but is it fair to lay it all on Chris Bourque? [<a href="http://causewaycrowd.com/2013/02/27/the-chris-bourque-conundrum/">CausewayCrowd</a>]</li>

<li> Milan Lucic spoke with Gresh & Zo about the non-call in Florida, Dougie and the Muppets, and Nathan Horton. [<a href="http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/02/27/bruins-milan-lucic-talks-physical-play-on-gresh-zolak/">WBZ,CBSLocal</a>]</li>

<li> The Bruins have managed to win quite nicely thus far without unnecessary opponent beat-downs. [<a href="http://www.masslive.com/bruins/index.ssf/2013/02/the_boston_bruins_can_still_win_without_being_big_and_bad.html">MassLive</a>]</li>

<li> Still no news on the Rask re-signing front. [<a href="http://espn.go.com/blog/boston/bruins/post/_/id/11024/rask-nothing-to-report-on-contract-front">ESPN</a>]</li>

<li> And Daniel Alfredsson 's name keeps coming up in trade rumors. [<a href="http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/50248-Boost-for-Bruins.html">TheHockeyNews</a>]</li>
