Stafford left the team to be with his wife while she was in labor, but is expected to be back in Toronto for Monday's game against the Maple Leafs.

The Bruins recalled a couple of forwards over the weekend in the event that Stafford and Patrice Bergeron (minor issues) are unavailable for Monday's contest. While neither is guaranteed to play, Stafford will if he makes it to Toronto in time for the tilt. Assuming he does, the veteran winger may flank David Krejci and David Pastrnak again as he attempts to add to his five points in seven games since joining the team.
