BRUINS NOTEBOOK

Adam McQuaid may miss rest of regular season

The Bruins, typically tight-lipped about injuries, lost blue liner Adam McQuaid to a shoulder strain during last week’s road trip, and coach Claude Julien noted Monday he expects the defenseman to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks.

If it turns out to be six weeks from the date of injury, March 19, that will mean McQuaid has been lost for the remainder of the regular season (final game: April 27). General manager Peter Chiarelli, already feeling out the trade market in hopes of adding a defenseman, now has extra incentive to shore up the back line.
