Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will not play against the Islanders or the Rangers this weekend. McQuaid suffered a cut above his left eye in the first period of Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Capitals.
McQuaid’s eye has closed, according to coach Claude Julien. McQuaid has not been diagnosed with a concussion.
Tough to lose a defenseman but at least it's not a concussion.
