Rust (undisclosed) won't play Monday but is close to making his season debut. "He's getting very close to clearance," coach Mike Sulllivan said. "I would envision he would be a coach's decision here really shortly."

Rust scored six goals and nine points in 23 postseason games last spring after scoring only 11 points in 41 regular-season contests. He could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday.
