Julien on McQuaid: 'His status hasnt changed'

ARLINGTON, VA The Bruins braved another day in the playoffs without Nathan Horton or Adam McQuaid on Wednesday while being unfairly labeled as headhunters by the Washington cognoscenti.
Its a little ironic that the only player for either the Bruins or Capitals currently missing from action because of rough stuff between the two teams is McQuaid, who hasnt been the same since Jason Chimera charged him from behind in late March.
McQuaid has missed seven of the last eight games since the Chimera hit, and lasted slightly more than a period against the Ottawa Senators before being forced to leave the game when he wasnt feeling right.
The Bruins are still terming the injury as an upper-body issue that stemmed from an eye laceration that swelled his eye shut immediately after the collision took place.
Hes still the same, said Claude Julien. His status hasnt changed.
McQuaid still hasnt jumped out on the ice since leaving the early April game against the Senators, and doesnt appear to be possible to return for the rest of the first round against the Capitals at this point.
Joe Corvo and Greg Zanon have filled in as the bottom defensemen pairing with McQuaid out of the lineup, and it appears that will be same twosome moving forward for the Black and Gold.
