WILMINGTON -- The Bruins will be getting out of town a day early when they fly to Pittsburgh on Tuesday morning. They will practice at the CONSOL Energy Center home of the Penguins once they land Tuesday afternoon.

Monday morning’s practice is the only Ristuccia Arena practice time likely for the rest of this week, and the Bruins spent an hour plus shaking out any holdovers from Saturday night’s disappointing loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Adam McQuaid took an errant high stick to the face from Daniel Paille during the practice session, but returned in time to skate a few laps while his teammates tapped the ice with their sticks at the end of practice.

“Just add that to the rest of Adam’s bumps and bruises,” said a smiling Claude Julien following the Monday session.

Otherwise everybody was accounted for from the Black and Gold aside from Loui Eriksson, who visited the Bruins staff for the first time since suffering the concussion.

Here are the line combos and D-pairings based on the practice:

Lucic-Krejci-Iginla

Smith-Bergeron-Marchand

Soderberg-Kelly-Caron

Paille-Campbell-Thornton

 

Chara-Boychuk

Seidenberg-Hamilton

Krug-McQuaid

 

Rask
