WILMINGTON, Mass. — Rookie defenseman Matt Hunwick had been scheduled to skate today at Ristuccia Arena with Boston Bruins teammates Petteri Nokelainen and Manny Fernandez, but the blueliner instead remained sidelined with flu-like symptoms.
Hunwick did not play Saturday against New York, nor did he travel to Montreal for Sunday’s game. The Bruins are scheduled to have a full-squad practice tomorrow and Hunwick could be back.
Should Hunwick be ready to play by Wednesday night, the Bruins will again have a tough decision. Last Thursday, Shane Hnidy was a healthy scratch when the Bruins opted to not dress seven defenseman as they had in the previous game.
