The Boston Bruins will enter the Prudential Center without the presence of two vital players as they face off against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday.

During discussions with reporters at Warrior Ice Arena on Tuesday, Jim Montgomery revealed that Pavel Zacha and Charlie McAvoy will be absent from the lineup for Boston's game against New Jersey. However, the head coach of the B's didn't provide confirmation regarding the potential availability of Zacha or McAvoy for Friday's game against the New York Islanders.

» You don't replace one of your top two centers and you don't replace your top D-man with an individual,» Montgomery said. «It's got to be an effort by everybody eating more minutes, and they got to do the job.»

«There's a lot of players playing well down in Providence,» Montgomery added. «A little bit is how well he's playing and also it's New Jersey, and it's where he played. I always find guys dig in and want to show the other team why they could have kept him.»

The Bruins will head to New Jersey for a matchup against the Devils on Wednesday evening.
