Borowiecki (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Game 4 against the Bruins on Wednesday, but the defenseman is "getting closer every day," Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.

Ottawa currently holds a 2-1 lead in the series, but it's worth noting that Game 2 ended after Boston forward Riley Nash was whistled for a controversial roughing penalty that preceded a Bobby Ryan game-winner on the man advantage. The fans at TD Garden will not forget about that one, and the B's will have to ramp up the intensity without presence of the hard-hitting Borowiecki, who amassed 364 hits during the regular season.
