Fresh off their 3-2 come from behind win over the Winnipeg Jets, the Bruins returned to the ice for the first time after having yesterday off.  Well, most Bruins returned to the ice. Nathan Horton, Gregory Campbell, Andrew Ference, Daniel Paille, Anton Khudobin, Adam McQuaid and Patrice Bergeron were all missing from Tuesday’s practice with flu-like symptoms.

More importantly, Milan Lucic returned to the ice after flying to Winnipeg only to have to fly right back to Boston to be with his family for “personal reasons.” Lucic only missed the Jets game will most likely be a game-time decision versus the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday night in Florida.

In other news, Lane McDermid has rejoined the Bruins after his conditioning stint with the Providence Bruins according to Naoko Funayama.


This morning’s lines at practice include: Marchand-Peverley-Seguin, Lucic-Krejci-Bourque and Pandolfo-Kelly-Thornton. Hamilton was paired with Chara and Seidenberg was paired with Boychuk and Aaron Johnson. Tuukka Rask manned the net.

The Bruins will travel to Tampa tomorrow and hold a practice at 1:45 p.m. so we will see the status of all seven players missing from Bruins practice today and a better understanding of Milan Lucic’s availability going forward on the road trip.
