Bruins gear up for tough schedule ahead
BOSTON (WHDH) -- After four games in six nights, the Bruins returned to work Monday during their longest break between games this season.
Forward Daniel Paille was back on the ice after missing one game because of a high stick to the face last Thursday.
“I haven’t been told that I’ve been cleared but obviously that’s a goal for me to play if I can,” said Paille.
Brad Marchand missed practice to rest his shoulder injury, but according to head coach Claude Julien, don’t expect any of the guys to be out for long.
“Right now, there's nobody that’s a definite no moving forward here for the next game. But obviously…make those decisions tomorrow,” Julien said.
With the extra days of preparation in Wilmington, the Bruins can't afford to let the extra ice time cool down their recent success.
“It’s important to continue to play well. I don’t think you can have any lulls in the season especially being a shortened season,” said Chris Kelly, forward.
“We got some big games this week, starting with Montreal and then Tampa…so we’re in for a pretty tough week, so we’re going to make sure we prepare ourselves the best we can,” said Julien.
