WILMINGTON, Mass. — After taking Monday off to bask in the glory of their Sunday win over Washington, the Bruins practiced today at Ristuccia Arena.
Zdeno Chara was the only player missing from the festivities.
Head coach Claude Julien said he gave Chara the day off because the captain has been run ragged the last several weeks, including during the All-Star break.
The lines stayed in the same formation from the win over the Capitals, including Chris Kelly centering the first line between Milan Lucic and Rich Peverley.
Julien did not provide an update on Nathan Horton beyond the fact that the forward skated on his own over the weekend. Julien says he won’t update on the winger’s concussion problems until the player takes the ice with the team for a practice.
