WILMINGTON, Mass. — The Bruins, including forward Milan Lucic, practiced today at Ristuccia Arena after taking Sunday off.

Lucic has a hearing with the NHL at 1 p.m. about his hit on Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller in Saturday night’s game.

Every skater was on the ice except for Andrew Ference, who’s out with a lower-body injury. Head coach Claude Julien said Ference is doing better and could start skating “in the next day or two.”

Daniel Paille practiced with a full cage. It was his first full practice since suffering a broken nose a week ago against the New York Islanders.

Benoit Pouliot, a healthy scratch Saturday, skated on the Chris Kelly-Rich Peverley line, while Jordan Caron skated on the fourth line.
