Garden party with some absentees

BOSTON — The Boston Bruins just completed an open practice at TD Banknorth Garden on the heels of their 2-0-0 road trip to Philadelphia and Ottawa.

Defenseman Aaron Ward and wingers Chuck Kobasew and Michael Ryder were not on the ice. Ryder, with a mean stitched-up gash between the bridge of his nose and brow, was seen leaving in street clothes just before the team skated. I’ll have updates on those players and more later on.
