Peverley Returns to the Lineup
DALLAS, TX -- Bruins fans can look for #49 to return to the Black & Gold game roster tonight versus the Dallas Stars.

Peverley
"Yeah he’s ready to go," said Boston Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien. "He felt good this morning and yesterday, and it’s been going as scheduled I guess.

"He’s as good as he’s going to be."

Peverley, who hasn't played since earning an assist against Montreal on Dec. 19, said it's been hard to remain in the press box.

"It’s not fun," said Peverley. "I’ve never had an injury [in the NHL] where I missed games before this year.

"It’s always tough to miss games, especially when you know you can play but in the long run it was the best thing to do."

Furthermore, prior to missing four games this season due to injury, Peverley said he'd taken pride in his ability to stay in the lineup.

"I think a lot of guys do," said Peverley. "[Tampa Bay's] Marty St. Louis, how many games did he play before he missed this year?

"I think guys take pride in staying healthy."

And this morning after skate, Peverley felt good.

"I feel like I’m getting back to where I need to be," said Peverley. "As long as I stay on [top of] this injury, I think I’ll be good the rest of the year."
