Jarome Iginla, Kevan Miller traveling with Bruins

Jarome Iginla (lower body) and Kevan Miller (undisclosed) will travel with the Bruins Monday afternoon to Minnesota for the start of a two-game road trip. Neither Iginla nor Miller participated in Monday’s practice at TD Garden. They were both out for Saturday’s 5-2 win over the Flyers.

“Chance they could play? Yes,” said coach Claude Julien, who emphasized that Iginla and Miller would dress if it were a playoff game.

While all available players will make the trip, some are scheduled for rest against either Minnesota (Tuesday) or Winnipeg (Thursday). Julien did not disclose which players will get breathers. Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron are the leading candidates to get at least one game off.

“I feel I’ve got a good read on my team,” Julien said. “At the same time, there’s times where that core group has come up to me and said, ‘We’re feeling a little tired. Our legs were a little heavy in that first period. Our legs were a little heavy tonight.’

“It’s good for me to know those things, because then I manage it knowing how they felt. It is a mutual thing.”

The Wild are in the seventh spot in the West. As such, they will be fielding their full lineup. Winnipeg is out of the playoffs, but the Jets handed Toronto a critical loss last weekend.

  The Bruins worked on their power play for part of Monday’s practice. Andrej Meszaros saw time on the first unit because of Iginla’s absence.

  The Bruins took their team picture prior to practice.
