Jagr likely to skip D.C. trip
By Joe McDonald
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins held an hour-long practice Friday morning at Ristuccia Arena as the team prepares to face the Washington Capitals Saturday night at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
Bruins veteran Jaromir Jagr will likely not travel with the team due to a minor flu bug he’s dealing with, according to Bruins coach Claude Julien.
“He may join us tomorrow, he may not, depending on the flu bug he’s fighting right now,” Julien said.
Also, Nathan Horton (upper-body injury) won’t travel. The rest of the players are expected to travel to Washington.
“Nathan’s doing fine,” Julien said. “He’s skating every day and he’s getting better. We’re being extra cautious but we’re going to make sure to get him ready for when the time comes.”
