Daniel Paille returns to Bruins practice

WILMINGTON – Daniel Paille practiced with the Bruins Monday at Ristuccia Arena for the first time since being high-sticked by Buffalo’s Tyler Myers last Thursday. Paille didn’t play against Toronto on Saturday because of precautionary reasons.

The area around Paille’s left eye is swollen and bruised, but the left wing said he’s feeling better.


Paille, however, has not been cleared to play on Wednesday against Montreal. Paille, who practiced on the fourth line, did not participate in battle drills Monday.

Shawn Thornton took a solo skate before practice. It was the first time Thornton was on the ice since suffering a concussion during his fight with John Scott on Thursday. Thornton rode the stationary bike Sunday, according to coach Claude Julien.

He is symptom-free, but remains very doubtful for Wednesday’s game.

David Krejci and Brad Marchand didn’t practice. Krejci is expected to practice Tuesday. Julien did not say the same about Marchand.
