WILMINGTON (CBS) – The Boston Bruins hit the practice ice at Ristuccia Arena before heading to Montreal for Tuesday night’s matchup with the Canadiens. Here are a couple quick notes from Monday morning’s skate.
-Andrew Ference and Steven Kampfer were both absent and will not play against Montreal. Ferrence has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury and is considered day-to-day. Kampfer will miss the next week with a mild concussion, and said he still experiences the occasional headache.
-Mark Recchi was given a personal day and was not at practice, but is expected to join the team in Canada.
-Patrice Bergeron was back on the ice after missing the last couple days due to a family issue.
Milan Lucic on the other hand, did not dismiss the chance of a few punches being thrown.
“I don’t know, we’ll have to see,” the Bruins forward said with a smile.
Tuesday Night’s Bruins-Canadiens game can be heard on 98.5 The Sports Hub with pregame coverage beginning at 6:30 p.m.
