WILMINGTON – The Bruins were back on the ice Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena for their first full practice since Saturday’s win over Columbus – at least, most of them are.
Two notable bodies missing were Adam McQuaid and Torey Krug, likely solving the mystery of the Bruins’ emergency recall of Kevan Miller on Monday night.
The Bruins had returned the defenseman to Providence of the AHL on Thanksgiving after he had filled in while McQuaid and Dennis Seidenberg were sidelined with injuries last month, but both returned to the lineup last week. It appears that McQuaid may have tweaked the hip/groin that had kept him out of eight games in November, thus necessitating the recall of Miller. McQuaid played just 13:45 in Saturday’s game, his third game back from injury.
It’s unclear why Krug is not participating in practice.
