Dougie Hamilton back in lineup

After missing four games with a concussion, defenseman Dougie Hamilton returned to the Boston Bruins' lineup Saturday against the Flyers in Philadelphia.

After going through a full-contact practice Friday, Hamilton said, "Every day I've felt better and I'm ready to play."

Fellow defenseman Adam McQuaid did not make the trip to Philadelphia and remains day to day because of a leg injury.

Forward Ryan Spooner missed the game due to illness, while Zach Trotman was the healthy scratch.

Forward Chris Kelly practiced Friday, but remained out of game action against the Flyers. He hasn't played since suffering a broken right fibula Dec. 7.
