Break for All-Stars

WILMINGTON — Good morning from a snowed-in Ristuccia Arena, where the Bruins have kicked off practice.

Matt Hunwick is wearing a black defenseman’s jersey. Hunwick skated on the fourth line yesterday for the first time this season. Michael Ryder, out the last two days because of flu-like symptoms, is on the ice. Also on the ice is Phil Kessel.

Marc Savard, Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas, and Blake Wheeler are not practicing. Petteri Nokelainen is also not here.

Goaltender coach Bob Essensa is bricking up the net opposite Tuukka Rask.
