Peverley back; Turco in net
By James Murphy
ANAHEIM, Calif., -- Rich Peverley will be back in the Bruins' lineup tonight against the Anaheim Ducks. Peverley hasn’t played since suffering a severe MCL sprain on his right knee Feb. 17.
Peverley has nine goals and 29 assists in 49 games played this season. He will start the game on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. Tyler Seguin will move onto the line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, while Jordan Caron will be skating with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton. Daniel Paille is the healthy scratch.
Marty Turco will start in net for the first time since March 13, when he took the loss in a 6-1 defeat at Tampa Bay. In that game, Turco was pulled early after allowing three goals on six shots to start the game and then returned after Tim Thomas allowed two more goals. Thomas has started the last 15 games for the Bruins. Turco is 0-1-0 with a 4.44 GAA and .824 save percentage.
