Kevan Miller is the winner of the Bruins injury jackpot. His play has been solid, and it made an awful lot of sense to sign the California native to shore up the big holes in the blue line that have been happening this season. Apparently Miller has been channeling a lot of his inner Brad Marchand when it comes to goofing off around the practice rink. Shirtless shenanigans seem to occur when Miller’s around say several of the Bruins. Read a little more on some of the backstage hi-jinx here: (NESN)

The Boston vs Bullies program is an initiative to help eliminate bullying in school. Over the past few years, several members of the Bruins organization, most notably Adam McQuaid have been part of the Boston sports team taking a stand against it. The latest Bruin to get on board in back up goalie Chad Johnson. He talked about his responsibility as a player on addressing the topic, and how he can make a change for the better in schools.

Chris Kelly has been out of action since his leg was broken in that infamous game against the Pittsburgh Penguins on December 7th. That’s twenty games out of action, and Kelly is eager to get back on the ice and back in the game. Kelly was cleared for action for today’s practice, and that means it’s just a matter of days before he’s back on the roster. Dougie Hamilton also practiced today, but he’s still not cleared for contact due to the concussion. Check out the full story at ESPN.

There is no timetable for Hamilton’s return. Concussions are a nasty business, especially with pro athletes. They’re not sure when he’ll be back and that big hole in the blue line is still plaguing the Bruins organization. (CSNNE)

The Olympics are shaping up to be a very tense place. That tension is making the Bruins ask their families not to come to Sochi to watch them play. David Krejci addressed his concerns with the media today, and he’s asked his family not to go to Russia. Check out the story here: (Causeway Crowd)
