The Bruins have kicked off practice at Fenway Park. Right on cue, the snow started to fall minutes before they hit the ice. They posed for a team picture at center ice, wearing their Winter Classic jerseys and toques. They are now in their white and black practice jerseys.
Tim Thomas and Tuukka Rask are sporting new designs on their masks.
- Mark Stuart was on the ice for the team picture, but is now leaving for the dressing room. Stuart is approximately two weeks away from returning to game play. Milan Lucic is skating, but will not play Friday.
UPDATE: Practice has concluded. The Bruins went through an extended scrimmage, then closed out the session with a shootout drill. Players' families are now on the ice, which has about half-inch of snow piled on top.
