“They’re good to go,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien after the team’s morning skate.
Hamilton has missed 10 games with a lower-body injury suffered on Dec. 8 at Toronto. Soderberg missed two games with concussion-like symptoms, but he said after Wednesday’s practice that it was not a concussion.
With Hamilton back in the lineup, fellow defenseman Kevan Miller will be a healthy scratch, according to Julien.
“There’s a guy there who’s maybe, I don’t know how to qualify him, he’s not a rookie, he’s not a young player, to me he’s a veteran -- he’s played in the [Swedish] Elite League for a long time. When he’s on that line there’s a presence there. There’s size, there’s speed, and he’s not afraid to go in those dirty areas. It makes a difference for that line so hopefully that happens again tonight.”
