BOSTON -- Bryan Bickell will miss his fourth straight game when the Chicago Blackhawks return to the site of their Stanley Cup celebration last year.

The Blackhawks hit the road to face the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.

Bickell hasn't played since March 19 after suffering an upper-body injury during a 4-0 win over St. Louis. He scored the tying goal in the Blackhawks' clinching Game 6 comeback victory over the Bruins in last year's Stanley Cup finals.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville left open the possibility of Bickell's return Friday night in Ottawa, saying, "We'll see."

Bickell participated in Thursday's morning skate at TD Garden.
