BOSTON -- Its appears the Boston Bruins’ M*A*S*H unit is recuperating.

Prior to the team’s full practice Saturday afternoon at TD Garden, forward Daniel Paille (head), defensemen Adam McQuaid (quad) and Dennis Seidenberg (knee) all skated with the team’s strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides.

Also, defensemen Matt Bartkowski and Kevan Miller, who have both been battling the flu, practiced with the team.

Forward Chris Kelly, who has been sidelined with what is being described as back spasms, did not skate.

Bruins coach Claude Julien said he is not sure whether Bartkowski or Miller will be available for Game 2 against the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

“Don’t know, yet,” Julien said. “This is Bartkowski’s first day practicing this week, and for Miller it’s his second, so it’ll depend how they feel tomorrow. We’ve got contingency plans here whether they play or not. Confirmation I can’t give you today.”

Both players were not made available to speak with the media after practice.
