BOSTON -- The Bruins returned to practice following the All-Star break, on Monday at the TD Garden, and were without their three All Stars -- Zdeno Chara, Tim Thomas, and Tyler Seguin.
They were also without forward Nathan Horton, who suffered a mild concussion in last Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
After the practice, Bruins coach Claude Julien said that Horton's condition is improving, but that it will "probably be at least two days, possibly three, before he starts being symptom-free."
"He is getting better . . . He's still at the point where he hasn't ridden the bike yet, but he is getting better," said Julien.
"They're all so different," added the Bruins' coach. "We just kind of keep our fingers crossed and hope that he gets better quickly. It's something that not even our medical staff can predict."
