Bruins healthy and accounted for at practice

Bruins healthy and accounted for at practice

By Joe Haggerty
CSNNE.comBOSTON Everyone was accounted for and relatively healthy on Thursday morning after fight night at TD Garden, and only David Krejci and Andrew Ference appeared to wearing any battle scares from the 8-6 win over the Canadiens.Krejci had a cut on his jawmouth area after catching a right hand squarely on the jaw from Benoit Pouliot, and Ference had some stitches on the corner of his eye after his throw down with Travis Moen. The Bruins ended practice with a shooting and rebound drill designed to elevate shots over a few stacked pads guarding the bottom half of the net. At one point the ever-intense Gregory Campbell snapped his stick over the crossbar when he couldnt life a shot over the wall in front of the net leaving only a 12-inch opening at the top of the net.Lines were the same, and if I were a betting man Id say that both Tyler Seguin and Mark Stuart will be healthy scratches again Friday against the Red Wings.

Morning Skate: Asking price on Shattenkirk should scare off Bruins

Morning Skate: Asking price on Shattenkirk should scare off Bruins

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading after watching the Boston Celtics take a hard pass on the Boogie. 
 
-- Bob McKenzie sits in with the good folks at TSN 1200 Ottawa sports radio and talks a little Claude Julien of the Montreal Canadiens

-- The Avalanche youth movement is set to begin as quickly as March 1, as Colorado may move some of its veteran players at the trade deadline. 
 
-- Ryan Johansen got snubbed in his return to Columbus for the first time as a member of the Nashville Predators. That’s too bad, but it’s also not exactly Wayne Gretzky returning to the Edmonton Oilers for the first time. 
 
-- The price tag for Kevin Shattenkirk is in and it includes a top prospect and a first-round pick, along with another piece, for a rental defenseman. That should be far too rich for the Bruins’ blood. The B's were already intent on avoiding the rental market ahead of the trade deadline, and the steep price -- even for a potentially useful short-term acquisition like the puck-moving Shattenkirk -- should make that even more of a certainty. 
 
-- Ken Campbell asks whether hockey agents have gone too far in chasing after prospective prospects before they even enter their teenage years. 

 -- Bobby Ryan has a hand injury that’s going to sideline him, another piece of bad luck for the Senators forward. 
 
-- For something completely different: On President’s Day, it seems only natural to go through the favorite Presidents in the history of the Marvel Universe.
