Bergeron in for Bruins; McQuaid out


Bergeron in for Bruins; McQuaid out

TAMPA BAY It looks like Adam McQuaid is definitely out tonight after taking part in morning skate this afternoon.

McQuaid wasnt on the ice for pregame warm-ups due to an upper body injury, but Patrice Bergeron was out skating with the rest of his teammates while looking spry and agile. So it looks like No. 37 will miss exactly zero games after getting knocked out Sunday afternoon after blocking a Matti Niskanen shot with his knee that appeared a much worse injury on first blush.
It appears that Lane MacDermid will also get scratched in lieu of Trent Whitfield just called up from Providence.

Here is the projected lineup for tonight:

LeBron James and Paul Pierce were among those to voice their support for the Patriots during their AFC Championship win over the Steelers Sunday night at Gillette Stadium. 

Pierce seemingly took a playful jab at Matt Ryan after tweeting throughout the Pats’ win. Pierce posted multiple pictures of himself during the AFC Championship, tweeting at the end of the game that he didn’t love the former BC quarterback’s odds against Tom Brady. 

James, meanwhile, gave props to Pats running back LeGarrette Blount, who had a rushing touchdown in the third quarter.
