Milan Lucic back at Bruins practice, but 7 sit out

WILMINGTON — Milan Lucic has taken the ice for Bruins practice this morning at Ristuccia Arena, but seven of his teammates will miss the workout because of flu-like symptoms.

Lucic immediately flew back to Boston after the team landed in Winnepeg for Sunday’s game against the Jets because he needed to attend to a personal matter. The team won at Winnipeg without him, 3-2, and won’t play again until Thursday against the Lightning in Tampa.

A few minutes before the start of today’s 10:30 practice, the Bruins announced that seven players would sit out: Gregory Campbell, Nathan Horton, Daniel Paille, Patrice Bergeron, Andrew Ference, Adam McQuaid, and Anton Khudobin.
