Bruins look for bounce back from Montreal

WILMINGTON — The Bruins went through practice this morning at Ristuccia Arena after a clunker of a game against the Canadiens Thursday night at the TD Garden. All healthy members of the team were on the ice, meaning that Adam McQuaid (leg) and Dennis Seidenberg (ACL/MCL) were the only ones missing.

The Bruins don’t have much time to stew on the loss, with a 1 p.m. game against Andrew Ference and the Oilers Saturday, but there was a sense in the locker room that they need to get back on the track they were on before the Canadiens game.

“You come back the next day, today, you put your skates on and you go out and work hard,” Chris Kelly said. “That’s how you can get over losses like that, is with hard work. I thought we had a good practice day today.

“It’s good that we play tomorrow afternoon to redeem ourselves because a lot of that game you want to forget, you want to put it behind you, but you want to take something from that game as well, the bad things you did.”

While the Oilers have the fewest points in the Western Conference, they have won their last three games.

As Boston’s Kevan Miller said, “We just need to get back to what we were doing and we’ll be fine.

“They’ve been playing well lately. We just need to be sharp like we were before Montreal, and get back to our game.”
