When the Boston Bruins hit the ice tomorrow night for their match-up with Toronto, it’ll be their first game since last Saturday’s win over Atlanta.
Most of the Bruins spent two of the four days off the ice — with only a handful of players taking advantage of an optional skate Tuesday and everyone taking Monday off. But head coach Claude Julien isn’t worried about his team losing its edge, especially after what he saw in today’s practice at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington.
“I thought we had a good practice today. We had a lot of things, some fine-tuning, a little bit of competing drills and that kind of stuff,” Julien said after practice. “I think, when you look back at what we had gone through, two days off the ice was probably a good thing for them at this stage. Yesterday they had a pretty good off-ice workout. We really felt that mentally, physically it was the right thing to do. I thought they looked like they had energy. And tomorrow again, a good morning skate, and hopefully be ready for tomorrow night.”
