You know you came up in a veteran organization when you'€™re set the play the team months after being traded and you only know "a couple" players on the team. That'€™s the case for Colin Miller as the Bruins prepare to take on the Kings at TD Garden. Miller, who was drafted by the Kings in 2012, won the Calder Cup with the Manchester Monarchs last season before being traded to Boston in the Milan Lucic trade. "I know a couple of guys on the team," Miller said Tuesday. "Obviously I wasn'€™t up there at all, so I know a couple of guys on the team and have been around them in training camp and stuff like that, but there are definitely a couple of buddies that I'€™ll be watching tonight." Ah, yes. Watching. Unfortunately for Miller, he appears to be the odd man out on defense for Tuesday, as he stayed out after morning skate along with injured defenseman Adam McQuaid. If Miller is out for Tuesday, he'€™ll join Steven Kampfer (scratched vs. his hometown Red Wings in the 2010-11 season) as defensemen Claude Julien has sat in sentimental moments. Miller, who was scratched Saturday as well, didn'€™t seem especially hurt by potentially sitting against his former organization. "It'€™s always fun playing against an old team that you know, but we'€™ll see what happens here tonight," Miller said. "It will be a good game either way." Here is the anticipated lineup for Tuesday, based on morning skate: Marchand-Bergeron-Connolly Eriksson-Krejci-Pastrnak Beleskey-Spooner-Hayes Rinaldo-Talbot-Ferraro Chara-Trotman Morrow-Seidenberg Krug-Kevan Miller Rask
