No Bergeron Tonight; Karsums recalled ; Sturm to LTIR

Patrice Bergeron is out for tonight's game with the flu. Martin Karsums has been recalled from Providence and will skate tonight on the fourth unit. To make room on the active roster, Marco Sturm was placed on the long term injury replacement list retroactive to November 17th. A simple recall of Karsums would have put the Bruins over the current salary cap maximum. The Bruins also have Matt Lashoff and Vladmir Sobotoka as extra position players on the current roster, and recalling another player would have made them exceed the cap. Therefore, the move was made. The good news is that a player on LTIR has to miss either 24 days or 10 games. Sturm has missed over 24 days, meaning he will be able to return next game against Toronto, assuming he is ready to play. Additionally, no Nokelainen or Ward for tonight's game. Manny Fernandez is starting in goal. Here is the rest of the lineup:

Lucic-Savard-Kessel
Wheeler-Krejci-Ryder
Axelsson-Yelle-Kobasew
Thornton-Sobotoka-Karsums

Stuart-Chara
Hunwick-Wideman
Lashoff-Hnidy

Manny

Who isn't liking the Ryder sign now?

Just wait until Sturm is back with Bergeron and Kobasew. 3 solid lines.

QUESTION:

how is it that kessel went -1 on the night when he had a goal and an assist and atlanta only had two goals. does this make sense to anyone? do i not understand the whole +/- system? explain, someone, please.

Both of Kessel's points came on the Power play. You do not receive a(+) for being on the ice during a PP goal and you do not receive a (-) for being on the ice during a PK goal against.

This is at the bottom of every box score on ESPN.com

"* - A player receives a "plus" if he is on the ice when his Club scores an even-strength or shorthand goal. He receives a "minus" if he is on the ice for an even-strength or shorthand goal scored by the opposing Club. The difference in these numbers is considered the player's plus-minus statistic."
