Shorthanded Bruins prepare for road trip
A flulike bug has ripped through the locker room this week, keeping seven Bruins off the ice for Tuesday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena: forwards Gregory Campbell, Nathan Horton, Daniel Paille, and Patrice Bergeron; defensemen Andrew Ference and Adam McQuaid; and goaltender Anton Khudobin.

That left just 16 players for the 75-minute workout, and forced some improvisation from the coaching staff.

“You have to ad-lib, I guess,” coach Claude Julien said. “There’s still some stuff we could do with our group that would benefit our team, so we kind of put those drills together and made the best of it.”


Flu thins out ranks for B's .
WILMINGTON — Having a flu bug work its way through the dressing room is nothing new in hockey, but yesterday’s sparsely attended Bruins practice was pretty unusual.

The B’s had seven players and one coach knocked out of commission due to flu-like symptoms. Gregory Campbell, Daniel Paille, Nathan Horton, Andrew Ference, Patrice Bergeron, Anton Khudobin, Adam McQuaid and assistant coach Doug Jarvis were all excused from yesterday’s session.


Bruins don’t like being out of first place, for any reason
WILMINGTON — Statistically, mathematically, logically, it was pretty much inevitable.

That doesn’t make it easy to digest.

“When you actually see yourself on the board, in the standings, going down – yeah, I’d say it motivates you,” Rich Peverley said Tuesday morning at Ristuccia Arena, where a makeshift collection of Bruins practiced without seven flu-stricken teammates.


Bruins honored, humbled by trip to Newtown
“You talk to a few people, hear different stories, and go back to thinking about what happened,” said Chris Bourque, one of seven players who were joined by coach Claude Julien, alumni members, Ice Girls and the team mascot for a day of clinics, gift exchanges and conversation at Newtown Youth Academy and a nearby ice arena. “It was just so devastating and it affected a lot of people there. To see them smiling (Monday) was really nice.”

“I really felt privileged to get that opportunity to go there,” Julien said. “A lot of fun, and amazing to see how strong and resilient those people are.

“The faith they have and the support they’ve been giving each other – I was extremely proud to have that opportunity.”
