The Boston Bruins can move a step closer to their first Presidents' Trophy since the 1989-90 season when they meet the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday at MTS Centre.

The Bruins have 114 points and lead the Anaheim Ducks by two points for the NHL lead in points. The Bruins, who begin a stretch of three games in four days, have a game in hand on the Ducks. With the Eastern Conference title clinched already, the Bruins' next goal is to earn home-ice advantage throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Center David Krejci will return to the lineup after having Tuesday off against the Minnesota Wild.

"I'm excited to play," Krejci said after the morning skate. "It was nice to get a little time off, but at the same time it's not fun to watch the game from the stands, the dressing room or [television]. I'm glad I'm back and looking forward to it."

With Krejci back, the Bruins are likely to rest center Patrice Bergeron, who has dressed for all 79 games this season. Center Chris Kelly (back) is also expected to be a scratch.

Right wing Jarome Iginla (lower body) has missed the past two games, but he skated Thursday and is a possibility to play. Defenseman Kevan Miller, who has also missed the past two games with an injury, may also play after participating in the morning skate.

The Bruins recalled center Ryan Spooner from the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League on Wednesday, and he is expected to dress against Winnipeg.

The Jets wrap up their home schedule against Boston before a road date against the Calgary Flames on Friday. This season is the seventh in a row that the Winnipeg franchise has failed to qualify for the playoffs.
