The hits just keep on coming for the Bruins. Defenseman Mark Stuart suffered a broken sternum in Monday’s game against Philadelphia. Although Stuart finished the contest, on Tuesday it was diagnosed that his sternum was indeed broken and coach Claude Julien said he will be sidelined 4-6 weeks.
There were three defensemen missing at practice today at Ristuccia Arena. Dennis Wideman (undisclosed injury) was out and Julien said he wasn’t going to be on the plane with the team to Chicago this afternoon but could join them on the trip at some point. Julien said the injury has nothing to do with the shots Wideman blocked against the Flyers.
Derek Morris (maintenance) took the day off but should be available for Friday’s contest.
