Bruins, Adam McQuaid back on the ice

WILMINGTON – The Bruins held their first practice following the Olympic break on Thursday.

They were without their five Olympians: Tuukka Rask, Patrice Bergeron, Loui Eriksson, Zdeno Chara, and David Krejci. Chara and Krejci, whose teams have been eliminated in Sochi, were expected to return to Boston Thursday and perhaps practice on Sunday or Monday.


Adam McQuaid (leg) practiced with the team for the first time since suffering his injury on Jan. 19 against Chicago. McQuaid resumed skating before the break. He was not on the ice during the break. McQuaid is not sure whether he will be ready to play on Wednesday against Buffalo. If McQuaid can play, he would replace Kevan Miller on the third pairing.

Alexander Khokhlachev and Craig Cunningham were recalled from Providence to practice Thursday. Cunningham was packing his gear after practice. The Bruins might bring up another player from Providence Friday.

The Bruins are scheduled to practice again Friday at Ristuccia Arena at 10:30 a.m. They should conclude their on-ice session in time to watch the US-Canada game at noon.
