WILMINGTON, Mass. — Although usual defenseman Matt Hunwick was again skating as a forward during Boston Bruins practice today at Ristuccia Arena, that role might not last very long.
Head coach Claude Julien revealed after practice that winger Milan Lucic, who missed Saturday’s game against Washington with an upper-body injury, is “a possibility for tomorrow,” when the Bruins will host Philadelphia at TD Banknorth Garden.
Lucic skated with his teammates today in a red non-contact jersey. He was not made available to the media after the session.
The Bruins’ other red, no-contact player today was Petteri Nokelainen, who has been out since early last month with an eye injury. He is scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday, according to Julien. That’s when Nokelainen will find out if he’s going to be cleared for contact drills.
