WILMINGTON, Mass. — After returning from the longest road trip of the season, the Bruins took off Tuesday and got back to work today at Ristuccia Arena with an hour-long practice.
The team worked on everything from power plays to shootouts to break-ins.
The lines were the same as they were Monday night, with Daniel Paille — a healthy scratch against Toronto — rotating in on the “Merlot Line.” Tyler Seguin, who head coach Claude Julien said played most of the Maple Leafs win at center, continued to fill the middle with Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi on the wings.
Defenseman Mark Staurt, out since Dec. 7 with a hand injury, continued to skate on his own before the team practiced. He is still not handling a puck yet four weeks after he was predicted to be out four to six weeks.
“But he’s on the ice and it looks like things are moving in the right direction,” head coach Claude Julien said about Stuart.
