Boston Bruins Roster Report 2008-11-17
GOALTENDERS: Manny Fernandez, Tim Thomas.

DEFENSEMEN: Zdeno Chara, Aaron Ward, Dennis Wideman, Mark Stuart, Shane Hnidy, Matt Hunwick.

FIRST LINE: Milan Lucic, Marc Savard, Phil Kessel.

SECOND LINE: P.J. Axelsson, Patrice Bergeron, Michael Ryder.

THIRD LINE: Marco Sturm, David Krejci, Blake Wheeler.

FOURTH LINE: Shawn Thornton, Stephane Yelle, Chuck Kobasew.


--G Tim Thomas fell to 1-3 in shootouts this season and dropped back under the .500 mark in that department, at 14-15.

--D Matt Hunwick, who played well in three games with Shane Hnidy hurt and then sat when Hnidy returned Thursday night, is back in the regular defense rotation with Andrew Ference gone for 6-8 weeks with a broken leg.

--C Marc Savard has just one goal in 14 games after scoring five in the first three but he has points in eight of the last 10 and has gone 1-9-10 over that stretch.

--D Dennis Wideman had his second career shorthanded goal Saturday night.

--RW Chuck Kobasew had the sixth fight of his NHL career Saturday night when he danced a bit with former Bruin Paul Mara.

--C Patrice Bergeron was credited with a shootout goal that would have kept the game alive Saturday night but a review showed the puck never went in and the game was over.


--D Andrew Ference, who took an Andrei Markova shot off the leg Thursday night, has a broken tibia and will be lost for an estimated 6-9 weeks, creating a hole on the defense. "Maybe, collectively the whole year, he's been our best defenseman," said GM Peter Chiarelli. "He's played a solid game, moving the puck ... we will miss him."
