Peverley still out, could return Sunday
By James Murphy
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Boston Bruins held an optional workout at the Toyota Center on Saturday morning in advance of their tilt with the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center and after the workout coach Claude Julien said that forward Rich Peverley -- out since Feb.17 with a knee injury -- will take warm-ups prior to the game but won’t play. However, he did not rule out Peverley from returning to the lineup Sunday at Anaheim.
“The decision has been made that he’s not going to play tonight but the decision hasn’t been made either way for the next game but if he doesn’t it allows him three more days,” Julien said. “But he’s feeling good enough and I want him to be around the team and warm-up will be good for him tonight. But again, I haven’t been told by our medical people that he’s been cleared yet. That hasn’t happened but he’s feeling good.”
