The Boston Bruins return from the NHL All-Star break Tuesday, kicking off a seven-game homestand starting with the Calgary Flames at TD Garden.

Boston’s currently in the middle of a scheduling quirk that will keep them at home for 12-of-14 games, and this is the final stretch following a two-game roadie that split things up.

Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery announced Matthew Poitras would remain sidelined after sustaining an injury prior to the break. Jake DeBrusk and Derek Forbort, however, will return following short absences. DeBrusk will skate on the top line, knocking David Pastrnak back down to the second line alongside Pavel Zacha.

Jeremy Swayman will return to the net following his appearance at all-star weekend.
