BOSTON (CBS) – Injured Bruins defensemen Adam McQuaid and Dennis Seidenberg both practiced on Tuesday and will travel with the team to Detroit, but it’s still unclear if either will suit up when Boston takes on the Red Wings on Wednesday night.
Both will participate in Wednesday’s morning skate, and head coach Claude Julien said the team will base their decision on the two blue-liners on how that session goes.
McQuaid has missed the last eight games with a lower-body injury, but sounded confident on Tuesday.
“I’m right there, so we’ll wait and see,” he said. “I hope to at least put myself in the equation for (Wednesday).”

Julien said that McQuaid was a little further a long than Seidenberg, who suffered a lower-body injury last Tuesday against the Rangers.
But Seidenberg also sounded confident after his second day back on the ice.
“I think I’m progressing,” said Seidenberg, who ramped things up on Tuesday after skating for the first time on Monday. “I did full practice and it’s getting better, so that’s a good sign.”
“It’s give and take,” he said. “We don’t have a date set, but I’m going on the trip and I’ll skate in the morning. We’ll see.”
