BOSTON (CBS) — The Bruins defensive depth will be tested once more, as blue liner Adam McQuaid will miss significant time.
The Bruins announced Wednesday afternoon via general manager Peter Chiarelli that McQuaid, 28, will miss six-to-eight weeks after suffering a broken thumb in his right hand early in the second period of Tuesday night’s 2-0 win over the St. Louis Blues. He did not return to the game.
Captain and top minutes-getter Zdeno Chara is already sidelined with a knee injury and Kevan Miller is still on the mend after dislocating his shoulder in a fight on October 18.
Luckily for the B’s, defenseman Torey Krug is back in action following a gruesome finger injury.
The Bruins practice again on Thursday, then travel to Columbus for the first game of a back-to-back against the Blue Jackets on Friday. The B’s play host to Montreal at TD Garden on Saturday night.
