WILMINGTON, Mass. -- It’s Day 2 of playoff preparation as the Bruins are set to host the Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 Friday at TD Garden.
Bruins coach Claude Julien explained on Tuesday that many players were missing from practice due to the flu making its way around the locker room. The team is back on the ice at Ristuccia today and many players have returned.
With the exception of Daniel Paille, Chris Kelly, Matt Bartkowski and Kevan Miller, everyone else is on the ice. The first and second lines are intact, while Justin Florek, Carl Soderberg and Loui Eriksson comprise the third line. Jordan Caron is on the merlot line with Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton.
