Pastrnak, who has not played since Oct. 31 due to a foot injury, will be in the P-Bruins'€™ lineup when they take on the Springfield Falcons Saturday night. The NHL'€™s holiday roster freeze begins at midnight, meaning the Bruins will have to either recall him, leave him in Providence or send him to the World Junior Championships by then. Julien did not divulge the Bruins'€™ plan for Pastrnak, saying, "David tonight is going to play for Providence and then a decision will be made concerning the World Juniors shortly after." Also missing from Saturday'€™s practice was Zac Rinaldo, who remains on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. The Bruins'€™ kept the same forward lines in practice as they have used in recent games, with Tyler Randell replacing Khokhlachev on the fourth line: Marchand-Bergeron-Connolly Beleskey-Krejci-Eriksson Vatrano-Spooner-Hayes Ferraro-Talbot-Randell The B'€™s will return to action when they host the Devils Sunday at TD Garden.
