WILMINGTON There was another full group of Bruins for morning captains practice at Ristuccia Arena prior to the opening of Bs rookie camp this afternoon. Playoff hero Nathan Horton was one of the ice skating around with his teammates playing shinny and it appeared his concussion was a distant memory. Tuukka Rask looked spry between the pipes fresh off summer knee surgery.
Both players werent present on Thursday, but have joined the nearly full contingent of Bs players winding up for the start of training camp next week.

DETROIT - Thomas Vanek and Frans Nielsen scored in a shootout, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a comeback 6-5 win over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.
The Red Wings rallied from 3-0 and 4-1 deficits in the first period, and with 3:04 remaining in regulation, Gustav Nyquist scored to pull them into a tie.
In the shootout, Tuukka Rask and Petr Mrazek stopped the first shots they faced before Vanek scored for the Red Wings and Brad Marchand countered with a goal for the Bruins. Nielsen, who like Vanek joined the team last summer as a free agent, scored on the team's third attempt and Vatrano missed the net with a chance to extend the 1-on-1 duels.
The Bruins were dominant early before blowing a chance to keep Detroit at a distance in the Atlantic Division standings.
