Kelly absent from Bruins practice in Lake Placid

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Good morning from the Lake Placid Olympic Center, where the Bruins have started practice.

Chris Kelly is the only regular missing. Kelly was banged up in the first period of Game 3 after Scott Gomez hit him from behind, sending the center into the Montreal net. Kelly finished the game and scored the empty-net goal in the final minutes. Perhaps we’ll get some information regarding Kelly’s absence after practice.

UPDATE: Claude Julien said Kelly is in Boston. Kelly is being examined for a possible fracture. Julien said Kelly should be available for Game 4.
