The Boston Bruins may be getting some reinforcements to their lineup Saturday night against the Minnesota Wild.
Torey Krug hasn't played since Nov. 10 after suffering an upper-body injury against the Philadelphia Flyers, but is probable to play Saturday, according to Bruce Cassidy. Brett Ritchie, who is suffering from an infection issue, also is a possibility against the Wild.
Patrice Bergeron was given a maintenance day and missed practice Friday. Par Lindholm, who required 18 stitches last night after being cut, has not been ruled out for tomorrow's matchup.
