Boston Bruins: Matt Beleskey Could Play Against The Arizona Coyotes


The Boston Bruins will have a game time decision to make tomorrow. Boston Bruins forward Matt Beleskey practiced again with the Black and Gold this morning, and could be ready to play tomorrow night against the Arizona Coyotes when they come to town tomorrow.  Beleskey was wearing the third line’s grey jersey this morning as he spent the practice on the left wing alternating with Zac RinaldoChris Kelly and Jimmy Hayes rounded out the latest incarnation of the Bruins third line.

Claude Julien didn’t share anything specific with the media, but declared that Beleskey could return tomorrow.

“Right now he’s practicing, so anytime a guy starts to practice he does become a possibility,” said the Bruins bench boss to the media after Monday’s morning practice. “I haven’t talked to the trainers, but [Beleskey] was a possibility for last game too and it didn’t happen. We’ll probably make that decision tomorrow.”

  • The 27-year old forward has been bouncing up and down the B’s forward lines all through the preseason and the start of this year. If Beleskey plays, it’s likely that Bruins forward (and new lead instigator) Zac Rinaldo will be one of the teams’ healthy scratches in tomorrow night’s game. Beleskey was certainly feeling positive about his chances in playing tomorrow and he shared them with the press after the practice.

    “I felt the best I’ve felt yet,” said Beleskey on his overall health. “So that’s a good sign. There’s always a chance [of playing]…I don’t know. I’ll have to talk to the coach. It’s no fun watching your own team play. You always want to be out there, so I’m just working hard to be back in the lineup.

    “I’m used to switching lines all the time, so it’s good getting a couple of practices to skate with those guys. We’re kind of like-minded players, so we’ll see what happens.”

    The Boston Bruins are still searching for that elusive first home win at the TD Garden. Beleskey returning could add a little extra offensive firepower to a team that has had little trouble putting goals on net so far this season. Hopefully, the Black and Gold can have the same success they had with the Coyotes when they visited their home in Arizona last week.
