Bruins head coach Claude Julien told the media in Ottawa on Thursday that Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk has a mild knee strain and is day-to-day.

Boychuk had a collision with Pittsburgh forward Aaron Asham in the Bruins' 5-3 loss to the Penguins on Tuesday night and had to be helped off the ice. But he walked out of TD Graden that night with a limp and on his own.

The Bruins are hoping he will be ready for the beginning of the Stanley Cup playoffs next week.
