WILMINGTON – Loui Eriksson, out the last two games because of a concussion, is not expected to dress in any of this week’s three games. The Bruins play at Pittsburgh on Wednesday, against Anaheim at home on Thursday, and at Long Island on Saturday.
Claude Julien said Eriksson does not plan to skate this week. Eriksson felt well enough to visit his teammates at Ristuccia Arena today.
With Eriksson out, Brad Marchand remained in his spot on the second line. Julien said if Marchand skates and competes as well as he did in today’s practice, the winger will be fine.
Today’s practice lineup:
Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
Reilly Smith-Patrice Bergeron-Brad Marchand
Carl Soderberg-Chris Kelly-Jordan Caron
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid
