The Boston Bruins return to the ice Monday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets and will try to snap a two-game losing skid.

Boston is coming off a 7-4 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday night, a showing that veteran forward Charlie Coyle called unacceptable. Columbus is playing the second night of a back-to-back, falling to the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.

Kevin Shattenkirk is expected to replace Ian Mitchell on Boston’s third defensive pairing, playing alongside Derek Forbort. Jeremy Swayman, who has a 2.28 goals against average and .926 save percentage in 10 games this season, will get the start between the pipes.

Puck drop for the Bruins-Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena is scheduled at 7 p.m. ET, and you can watch it live on NESN after an hour of pregame coverage.
