Practice Notebook: Seidenberg, McQuaid Both Make Trip to Detroit

WILMINGTON, MA - The Bruins hit the ice for practice on Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena with a full group. Both Adam McQuaid and Dennis Seidenberg have integrated back into team skates, but have yet to get back into game action since each suffering lower-body injuries.

The good sign? Both were set to travel to Detroit on Tuesday, as the B’s prepare to face the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday night.

Kevan Miller made his NHL debut at TD Garden on Thursday night, as Adam McQuaid was still sidelined by a lower-body injury.

McQuaid watched the game from the press box, as Miller suited up in the Spoked-B, playing just shy of 18:00 and being used in all situations on the ice.

"I thought he played great," a smiling McQuaid was quick to say following the Bruins’ Friday practice at Ristuccia Arena. "Solid."

"I was saying to some of the other guys, that I don’t think he made a bad play, like he seemed to always find the right guy and the right option."

"So it’s always exciting for guys, to see them get their first game. I’m excited for him, and I think his family was here, so exciting for everyone."

How well does Adam remember what it was like heading into his first NHL game?

It came just about four years ago, on December 19, 2009.

"Yeah, I do. Well, I guess it wasnt that long ago, anyways," he laughed.

"It was in Toronto and I remember being exited and pretty nervous. All my family was there and my billet family that I played Sudbury in juniors."

"It was an exciting day and I’m sure if he plays that well in that first game, he’s got a bright future ahead of him."

McQuaid: "Most disappointing loss of my life"

BostonBruins.com - Throughout the Stanley Cup Final, Bruins’ defenseman Adam McQuaid shared his journey through a player blog on NHL.com.

From the roller coaster of the season, to his time growing up in PEI, to his father’s influence, to the experience of having rookie Dougie Hamilton living with him this year, McQuaid let fans into many aspects of his life, both on and off the ice.

Following the Bruins’ heartbreaking 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, McQuaid’s final blog entry talks about the difficulty of taking in the defeat that saw Chicago hoist the Cup on their home ice, after scoring two quick strikes within 17-seconds in the final 1:16 of regulation to secure the victory.

He also addresses the inspiration that Patrice Bergeron provided the team, battling through his injuries, with his team on the brink of elimination.

McQuaid's Blog: Excited to be Heading home All Even

BostonBruins.com - Throughout the Stanley Cup Final, defenseman Adam McQuaid has been keeping a player blog with NHL.com. In his blog entry following Saturday night’s Game 2, overtime win, he talked about his decision to give the Player of the Game Army Rangers jacket to veteran center and leader, Chris Kelly, who scored his first goal of the postseason in the victory. McQuaid had earned the jacket himself with the lone goal in the Bruins’ Game 4 win over Pittsburgh that sent them into the Stanley Cup Final.

Here is the excerpt from his blog on NHL.com:

—-

Any win is a wonderful win, especially after losing the first one — obviously. Being tied 1-1 is a better situation than being down 2-0. Again, a game that goes to overtime and anything can happen, either team can win. I think Tuukka [Rask] really stood on his head in the first period and really kept us in the game and gave us a chance to win.
