One of the biggest questions heading into Thursday: who's going to be ready to play.
Rick Nash, Riley Nash and Sean Kuraly are all on the shelf with various ailments.
Don Sweeney had a press conference today and struck an optimistic tone.

“All working that way - hopefully they’ll all be available.”
Hey, "could be" is a lot better than "we have no idea" from a couple weeks back.
Obviously, having these guys healthy would be a huge boost to the Bruins.
Let's hope they continue to progress over the next couple days.
