On to Winnipeg…

WINNIPEG, MB - The Bruins arrived in Winnipeg Sunday night following the 2-1 loss in Pittsburgh, and were welcomed with a winter storm (a nice start to the Canadian road trip, no doubt).

David Krejci did travel with the team West to the ‘Peg, so that was a positive and Coach Julien gave an update following Monday’s practice at MTS Iceplex, saying that No. 46 “came in for treatment and he’s day-to-day.”

"There’s no broken bones," Coach added. "The damage is from the shot, as you know. But, again, he’s getting treatment and we’re hoping he’ll be back soon. It’s nothing serious to the point where we’re talking about weeks."

"Right now, we’re dealing with it as a day-to-day situation. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow and we’ll progress from there."

About half of the team took the ice for the 12:30 practice, with eight forwards, three defenseman (Hamilton, McQuaid, Johnson) and both Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin on.

White: Pandolfo, Peverley, Seguin, Caron
Merlot: Paille, MacDermid, Campbell, Thornton

The skate started out with quick passing drills and shooting practice, and quickly segued into work on all areas of the ice, including some net-front deflections. Great energy from the B’s, including Adam, Aaron and Dougie, who got in some overtime being the only three defensemen on. I always enjoy watching the details of the game, and that’s something the B’s worked on for quite some time at the end of the skate - stickhandling, faceoffs, one-timers - you name it, they practiced it, and all with smiles.

Here are the Bruins who did not skate today: Lucic, Horton, Bergeron, Krejci, Marchand, Ference, Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuk.

Starting with the Jets Tuesday night at the MTS Centre, the B’s road trip through Canada will take them through Ottawa (Thursday game) and Toronto (Saturday), before heading back to Boston.
