Today on Bruins Daily

The Bruins finish their five-game home stand as they host the Columbus Blue Jackets for the first time. The Bruins have gone 3-0-1 so far on the home stand. Backup goaltender Chad Johnson gets his third start of the season and first at TD Garden as a Bruin tonight.

Be sure to follow @BruinsDaily on twitter for updates throughout the game and be sure to use #DailyLive in your tweets to interact with us tonight.

In case you missed it

It’s that time of the week again, Rosie presents to you, The Jack Edwards Call of The Week.

After two wins and an overtime loss, Chris named Tuukka Rask his Player of The Week.

Know the enemy

Tonight the Bruins welcome the reigning Vezina winner Sergei Bobrovsky and the Columbus Blue Jackets to TD Garden. After finishing the season with a 2.00 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage a year ago, Bobrovsky has struggled a bit this season. The Russian goaltender enters tonight’s contest with a record of 5-8-1, a 2.84 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.

We all know the Nathan Horton story by now. Horton turned down an offer from the Bruins to sign with the Blue Jackets this offseason. Unfortunately we won’t see Horton on the ice tonight as Horton continues to recover from off-season shoulder surgery. Horton skated last week for the first time since his June surgery.

“The doctors here looked at it and it looks really good,” Horton told The Columbus Dispatch. “It looks like we’re on track still and that’s the good news that we wanted. I can’t read the thing, but you can see that it’s healing or healed and I think they got the news that they wanted.”

Columbus enters the night with just one win in their last seven games.
