    Adam McQuaid

    ??? 

    Anyone know anything? 

    Horton is listed on injured reserve, with Savard, on the Bruins official site - does that mean he's through for the year?  http://bruins.nhl.com/club/roster.htm

    We desperately need two points tonight.

    Re: Adam McQuaid

    TAMPA BAY – The Bruins are starting to regain the health of their players, but the question is whether it can happen quickly enough.

    Both Patrice Bergeron (lower body) and Adam McQuaid (upper body) were supposed to take part in the pregame warm-up prior to Tuesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

    Both made it through morning skate without incident, but only Bergeron appeared in both the warm-up and the game on the Tampa Times Forum ice. McQuaid was sent to the hospital during Sunday’s game after taking a heavy hit from Pittsburgh power forward James Neal, and the upper body injury stemming from that hit cropped up on him prior to game time against Tampa Bay.

    “Before the game [McQuaid] wasn’t okay. He was getting ready to go and we pulled him [of the warm-up,” said Julien.

    So McQuaid was held back and Greg Zanon played in his place as the sixth defensemen in a game that was essentially lost as soon as it had begun.

    With the B’s next game against the Florida Panthers set for Thursday night at BankAtlantic Center, there is no big rush for McQuaid’s return. The Bruins have good depth along the blueline with Zanon and Mike Mottau.

    In the better news department: Rich Peverley is scheduled to hit the ice on Wednesday afternoon to skate on his own as he attempts to recover from a sprained knee suffered a month ago against the Montreal Canadiens.

    Peverley took a knee-on-knee hit from Hal Gill and was originally supposed to be out 4-6 weeks with the injury. So the shifty right winger will start on the road back to recovery on Wednesday barring any setbacks, and appears to be on the high end of the recovery window.

    That means Boston should get at least one of their big forwards guns back sooner rather than later. The question is what exactly the healing B’s players will be coming back to if the remaining healthy Bruins skaters can’t straighten things out and start winning some hockey games.

    This from an article by a guy named Joe Haggerty. I've not read his stuff, but I've noticed other posters not to fond of his insight. Whatever. It's the only report I could find on McQuaid.

    Nathan Horton Injury Update

    Last updated March 8, 2012

    Still no timetable for Horton return

    BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins and forward Nathan Horton (concussion) have not reached the point in his rehab where they’re discussing a possible return to the ice. Horton suffered a concussion, his second head injury in a six-month span, on Jan. 22 at Philadelphia. He’s missed a total of 19 games and Thursday night will be his 20th as the Bruins host the Buffalo Sabres at TD Garden. Horton walked into the Garden around 9:30 a. Boston Bruins Blog | ESPN Boston

    Here's what I found on N.Horton. I would guess that we shouldn't be looking for Horton to be ready for the playoffs.

    I was hoping and expecting Horton back with about 5 games to go. I'm still hopeful of that.

    That sounds about right.  Someone (I think Dez) posted from Twitter a couple days ago that Horton might start skating on his own soon.

    From Bish's blog on Bruins official site says Bergeron is skating , game-time decision , he'll play IMO.
    On Peverley Julien said he did skate yesterday and didn't know much more than that.
    No18 , Horton still didn't resume skating.

    I think Horton will be back and give it a go

    Re: Adam McQuaid

    There are fill-ins for defense, so McQ can take a few extra days. I would not expect Horton back, but with both Seguin and Caron performing well, that's not the biggest problem. Tuuka is the key guy for success. Timmy needs a solid alternate, and the entire defense needs to play a solid game of DEFENSE.
