If the Boston Bruins want to break their two-game losing streak they'll have to do it with out MIlan Lucic. After practice today Claude Julien said Looch won't be available for tomorrow's game against the Winnipeg Jets due to personal reasons. He's returning to Boston right away, No Milan Lucic vs. WPG. Has returned to Boston for personal reason. — Fluto Shinzawa (@GlobeFluto) February 16, 2013 Won't speculate what the personal reasons could be as it could be anything. Whatever the reason it's big enough to miss a day of work. Stepping in for Looch will be Lane MacDermid or Jay Pandolfo. If Julien decides to move Paille or Campbell up the line then we'll see MacDermid. If he decides to keep the Merlot Line in tact then Pandolfo will make his Bruins debut. Seeing who'll actually replace Lucic on the first line will be interesting. Maybe Julien moves Seguin back to the first line to see if more chemistry is sparked. Last time they did it with Lucic on the wing, so it'd be interesting to see how they do with Horton as their third man. During practice today Peverly was skating with the first line, so he might start on the first line and see how things go.  Quick update from Fluto:    Jay Pandolfo practiced on the fourth line. Pandolfo will make his Bruins debut tomorrow. Pandolfo was a healthy scratch last night. The left wing signed his one-year, $600,000 contract on Tuesday. Today’s lineup: Rich Peverley-David Krejci-Nathan Horton Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin Daniel Paille-Chris Kelly-Chris Bourque Jay Pandolfo-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid Aaron Johnson Tuukka Rask Anton Khudobin
