Kobasew, Nokie Out

The Boston Globe reports that Chuck Kobasew and Petteri Nokelainen will not play in tonight's game against the New Jersey Devils.

Both players are listed as day-to-day after sustaining injuries in Monday's game against San Jose. Nokie took a stick to the face, and Kobasew is nursing a leg injury.

Tough break for the B's, as Kobasew and Nokelainen both provide depth to the club. Kobasew just started to put some points on the board again, scoring two assists in his last three games.

Nokelainen boasts two assists in his last two games, putting up a +2 rating in both. He saw a different role in Monday's game, playing on the wing of David Krejci and Blake Wheeler.

Coach Julien said it's still possible that either player could suit up in tomorrow's Valentine's Day match-up against the Nashville Predators.
