Boychuk is not scheduled to travel with the team to Montreal on Sunday.
Boychuk was hit in the left side of the head with a slap shot from Canucks forward Mikael Samuelsson during a first-period penalty kill. He was bloodied and helped off the ice by teammates Blake Wheeler and Zdeno Chara. Boychuk did not return to the game.
The Bruins start a four-game road trip Sunday against the Canadiens. Julien said that if Boychuk cannot play, defenseman Andrew Ference might be able to step in. Ference has been out since Jan. 5 with a groin injury but practiced last week. An extra defenseman could also be recalled from Providence (AHL), but Julien said there were no plans for a call up.
