Adam McQuaid absent from practice

WILMINGTON, Mass The Bruins are once again on the ice at Ristuccia Arena, and working on a power play that wasnt exactly firing on all cylinders at the end of the regular season. The lines and defensemen combos are the same, and once again Adam McQuaid was missing from the practice ice.

McQuaid hasnt been seen near the frozen sheet since exiting last weeks win over the Ottawa Senators, and appears to still be suffering some after-effects from a hit suffered at the hands of Jason Chimera two weeks ago. Claude Julien said that McQuaids status was up in the air heading into this weeks playoff games. Tuukka Rask was on the ice practicing with the Bruins for the second straight day as he comes back from a groinabdomen strain.

Here are the projected lines for the Bruins:
