Turco vs. Montoya, Seidenberg out vs. Isles

UNIONDALE, NY It will be Marty Turco against Al Montoya at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday afternoon as the Bruins look to get back onto the winning track, and clinch the Northeast Division title if Ottawa cooperates with a loss in regulation.

Turco will be getting his third start for the Bruins and hell be looking for his second straight win after notching a victory over the Anaheim Ducks last weekend in California. It could be Turcos last appearance with Boston if they call Anton Khudobin up from Providence next week, and if so the veteran netminder will want to go out on a high note. The Bruins will hold Dennis Seidenberg out while he recuperates from the stitched-up wound on his knee, and Mike Mottau will get the nod against the former Islanders team that traded him to Boston.

Here is the projected lineup for the Bruins:

Lucic-Krejci-Seguin
Marchand-Bergeron-Peverley
Rolston-Kelly-Pouliot
Caron-Campbell-Thornton

Chara-Boychuk
Ference-Zanon
Mottau-Corvo

Turco
Thomas

Report: Celtics secure meeting with Dwight Howard

In February, the Boston Celtics were involved in trade deadline talks with the Houston Rockets involving center Dwight Howard.

It appears the team still has interest in the free-agent big man. 

According to ESPN, the Celtics have secured a meeting with Howard after July 1.

Howard, 30, became a free agent after declining a player option that would have paid him more the $23 million in 2016-17
