The Bruins are back at the Garden for the first time in about 10 days, and will host the Calgary Flames after taking them down in last week’s first game back in the Saddledome for Jarome Iginla.

Iginla was back on the ice this morning after a source told CSNNE.com that the B’s right winger was cleared to play by doctors on Monday afternoon. It looks like wild horses couldn’t keep him away from playing his former team.

Iginla confirmed he was good to go following Tuesday’s morning skate, and it appeared that Craig Cunningham, Shawn Thornton and Adam McQuaid would be the scratches against Calgary after taking part in morning skate.

Tuukka Rask was the first goaltender off the ice for the Black and Gold, and it appears that he’ll get another start vs. Calgary after earning the solid win over the Flames last week. The B's netminder is coming off a rough effort against the Canucks where he was pulled for the first time this season after allowing his fourth goal of the game in the third period.

Otherwise, the lines and pairings should look something like this:
 
Lucic-Krejci-Iginla


Marchand-Bergeron-Fraser


Soderberg-Spooner-Smith


Johnson-Campbell-Caron
 

 


Chara-Boychuk


Seidenberg-Bartkowski


Krug-Miller
