NHL.com Preview:

Defenseman Kevan Miller did not travel to Florida, according to the Boston Globe. Miller sustained an upper-body injury in the second period of the 2-1 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals on Saturday when he was hit into the boards by forward Alex Ovechkin. Miller, who has five goals and 18 points in 59 games this season, left the game and did not return. The Bruins, third in the Atlantic Division, play the two teams ahead of them -- the Panthers (80 points) and Tampa Bay Lightning (82 points) -- back-to-back starting Monday..  (More)

"It wasn't a good road trip for us. We should have played better. We didn't have our 60-minute games that it takes to win in this league," coach Gerard Gallant said. "We have got to forget about it and look forward to the next three games at home." The Panthers return to Sunrise one point ahead of Boston (36-23-7), which is 4-1-1 in six after a 2-1 overtime loss to Washington on Saturday. The Bruins have won nine of 11 on the road. "I think we're playing better, but there's always room to improve," defenseman Zdeno Chara said. "It's not getting any easier, and we have some tough games ahead of us." The Bruins have a pair of 3-1 victories over the Panthers this season, including one in Florida on Oct. 30. There could be a little more buzz for this visit with Jagr looking to break his tie with Howe.  (More)
