WILMINGTON, Mass. — After playing three games in four days, and losing twice, the Boston Bruins still practiced this morning at Ristuccia Arena.

Personally, I thought today should’ve been an off day, considering the team has another three-game-in-four-nights starting tomorrow.

Stephane Yelle, who has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury, practiced. He said he is still day-to-day.

Phil Kessel and David Krejci did not skate. Head coach Claude Julien said they were both unable to practice but he was hopeful they’d be able to play against Ottawa tomorrow. Kessel was banged up in the second period last night in Columbus but played the third.

Tim Thomas and Manny Fernandez are both on the ice and skating with their own masks on.
