Bruins' Kelly: Three-Game Point Streak

News: Chris Kelly's point streak stands at three games and four assists after he picked up a helper in Saturday's win over the Sabres.
Analysis: He seems to clicking with Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson right now, and that line is providing the Bruins with some much-needed secondary offense while the team works to get into a groove this season.

Bruins' Kelly Notches Two Points

News: Chris Kelly contributed a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's loss to Montreal.

Bruins' Kelly Recovering Well From Back Surgery

News: Chris Kelly (back) is satisfied with how he's recovered from offseason back surgery and expects to be available for training camp.
Analysis: Chris Kelly has been skating since July and has received clearance to endure contact, suggesting he'll enter the 2014-15 campaign at full health. The 33-year-old is expected to slot in on the Bruins' third line once again, providing most of his utility on the penalty kill rather than as a centerpiece of the offense.

News: Chris Kelly is slated to have surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back that he sustained on April 8, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: The report notes that Chris Kelly's recovery period following the surgery will be about 4-6 weeks, a timetable that ensures that he is on track to be good to go well before the Bruins take the ice again. Kelly finished up the 2013-14 season with 18 points in 57 games, while working primarily on the team's third line.

News: Chris Kelly will likely require surgery on his sore back this summer, CSN's Joe Haggerty reports.

Analysis: Kelly -- who has been out since April 8 -- is said to be improving, though at this stage there's no timetable for his possible return to the B's lineup. "Chris Kelly has come along," coach Claude Julien noted. "Every day is a better day for him, and that's basically all I can tell you about him."

Bruins' Kelly Dealing With Back Issue

News: Chris Kelly (back) did not participate in the Bruins' optional morning skate Friday, csnne.com reports.
Analysis: Chris Kelly, who has been out since injuring his back on April 8, thus heads into the opening round of the playoffs (which starts for the Bruins on Friday) in the day-to-day category, along with fellow forward Daniel Paille.

Bruins' Kelly Remains Day-To-Day

News: Chris Kelly (back) did not practice Wednesday.
Analysis: As Friday's playoff opener against the Red Wings approaches, Chris Kelly remains day-to-day, with Justin Florek filling in for him at practice on the Bruins' third line, which also features Loui Eriksson and Carl Soderberg.

Chris Kelly

Bruins' Kelly Day-To-Day

News: Chris Kelly remains day-to-day with a back injury.
Analysis: Meanwhile, the Boston Globe suggest that Chris Kelly -- who is dealing with back spasms -- could be available for the B's postseason opener this coming week. The veteran forward is being rested in Sunday's regular season finale against New Jersey, in any case.

Chris Kelly, C, BOS

Chris Kelly

Bruins' Kelly Day-To-Day

News: Chris Kelly, who is day-to-day with a back injury, should be ready to go for the playoffs, according to the Bruins' official site.
Analysis: It appears as though the Bruins will play it safe with Chris Kelly as the regular season concludes this weekend, though with 18 points in 57 games to date, the veteran forward is only of note in deeper formats. During his time with Boston, Kelly has recorded 19 points over 54 postseason contests, so the third-liner could be worth a later dart in playoff pools for those inclined to back the B's.

Bruins' Kelly Day-To-Day

News: Chris Kelly (back) won't play Thursday against the Jets, NESN.com reports.

Bruins' Kelly Misses Practice

News: Chris Kelly (unspecified issue) is day-to-day, according to coach Claude Julien.
Analysis: Chris Kelly did not participate in Wednesday's practice, which clouds his status for Thursday's game against the Jets. Meanwhile, Julien indicated that Kelly's issue is "not something major, but something that needs to be addressed."

Bruins' Kelly Notches Empty-Netter

News: Chris Kelly put the finishing touches on Sunday's 5-2 win over the Panthers with an empty-net goal.
Analysis: Scoring opportunities don't come about often for the third-liner, but Chris Kelly has been on a hot streak of late based on his modest standards. He has a goal and two assists over his last four games.

Bruins' Kelly Returns

News: Chris Kelly (leg) saw 15:22 worth of ice time in his return to action Tuesday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Chris Kelly, who returned after missing 22 games due to a broken right fibula, worked on the B's fourth line to start Tuesday's game, but by the end of the contest, he was centering the team's third line, his usual role. With seven points in 30 games to date, Kelly's fantasy impact has been modest, but the veteran pivot helps out the Bruins both as a penalty killer, and in the leadership department.

Chris Kelly

Bruins Activate Kelly

News: The Bruins have activated Chris Kelly (leg) from injured reserve, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Chris Kelly is thus eligible to play in Tuesday's game against the Panthers and with that in mind, the veteran forward appears poised to return to a slot on the Bruins' third line in that contest.

Bruins' Kelly Could Play Tuesday

News: Though Chris Kelly (leg) won't play Monday against the Islanders, he could return to action Tuesday against the Panthers, the Bruins' official site reports. "He's not going to go tonight," coach Claude Julien said Monday morning. "We made that decision and I think as far as his injury is concerned, he's healed so probably a possibility for tomorrow [Tuesday]."
Analysis: Subjecting Chris Kelly to a back-to-back games in his potential return is something the Bruins are looking to avoid here, but at this point, it looks like the forward is poised to see his first game action (on Tuesday) since Dec. 7.

Bruins' Kelly 'Getting Pretty Close' To Return

News: Bruins coach Claude Julien said Sunday that he thinks Chris Kelly (leg) is "getting pretty close" to a return.
Analysis: Sunday's contact practice was just Chris Kelly's second since he suffered his injury back on Dec. 7, but coach Claude Julien said the 33-year-old "may" give it a go Monday against the Islanders. If the team feels he's not quite ready, however, they could hold him out until later in the week.

Bruins' Kelly Cleared For Contact

News: Chris Kelly (leg) was cleared for contact Friday.
Analysis: It's the final major hurdle for Chris Kelly, though he figures to require several contact practices before returning to game action. While he's traveling with the team on its two-game road trip, which begins Saturday in Philadelphia, Kelly has been out for nearly seven weeks, and a return for Monday's game against the Islanders seems like a best-case scenario.

Bruins' Kelly Making Progress

News: Chris Kelly (leg) will travel with the Bruins, who play in Philadelphia on Saturday and on the road against the Islanders on Monday, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: That said, it's still not clear when Chris Kelly will be turned loose in a game. With that in mind, coach Claude Julien noted Thursday that he doesn't know yet when the forward will be back in the lineup, while suggesting that may occur "hopefully within the week."

Bruins' Kelly Practices Thursday

News: Chris Kelly (leg) participated in Thursday's practice.
Analysis: Chris Kelly worked on a unit Thursday that included wingers Loui Eriksson and Carl Soderberg, along with fellow center Ryan Spooner. The veteran center's status for Saturday's game against the Flyers is undetermined, but what is clear is that Kelly is inching toward a return to game action.

Bruins Rule Kelly Out For Road Trip

News: Chris Kelly (leg) will not play in either of the team's upcoming road contests, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Coach Claude Julien indicated earlier this week that Chris Kelly wasn't close to a return, and that appears to hold true with this latest news. The Bruins don't have an exact timetable for Kelly's return and likely won't until he rejoins the team for practices.

Chris Kelly

Bruins' Kelly Progressing

News: Though Chris Kelly (leg) has been skating on his own for the last few days, coach Claude Julien said Monday that the forward is not close to returning, ESPN's Joe McDonald reports.
Analysis: On the plus side, it's clear that Chris Kelly is making progress, but with youngster Ryan Spooner filling in well while centering the Bruins' third line, the team can afford to not rush Kelly -- who is an asset on draws and the penalty kill -- back into action.
