WILMINGTON, Mass. – The Bruins might get one of their walking wounded back for back-to-back games this weekend. Johnny Boychuk returned to full practice at Ristuccia Arena prior to the team’s flight to Philadelphia.

A Boychuk return to the B’s lineup would come at a good time with games on the road against the Flyers and Sabres set for this weekend. It would start to give the Black and Gold some remnants of their lineup back together. Boychuk had missed three games with a right foot injury after taking a Tyler Seguin shot off the side of his skate a week ago at practice in Ottawa.

Chris Kelly (fractured left tibia) and Adam McQuaid (strained right shoulder) both remain out for the Bruins, and don’t appear very close to a return to the ice.

Here are the line combos and defense pairings from practice on Friday:
 
Lucic-Krejci-Horton

Marchand-Bergeron-Seguin

Pandolfo-Peverley-Caron

Paille-Campbell-Thornton/MacDermid

 
Chara-Boychuk

Seidenberg-Hamilton

Ference-Johnson

Bartkowski-Krug

 
Rask
