WILMINGTON – The Bruins have concluded practice at Ristuccia Arena. They will depart for Buffalo this afternoon.
Friday’s game against the Sabres marks the first of a five-game stretch away from TD Garden. The Bruins will travel to Winnipeg on Saturday and play the Jets on Sunday. They will return to Boston before leaving for Tampa on Wednesday.
“It’s not going to be an easy road trip for all the obvious reasons,” Claude Julien said of the upcoming two-game segment. “Buffalo’s certainly going to want to bounce back from their loss to us less than a week ago. Winnipeg, our players have yet to win a game in that rink. It’s certainly a good challenge for us.”
The Bruins didn’t change their lineup from Tuesday’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers. Here’s how they looked:
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
Chris Bourque-Chris Kelly-Rich Peverley
Daniel Paille/Jay Pandolfo-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid
