The Bruins have fully recovered from the injury bug that hit the team earlier this season, but another bug held several B’s players out of practice this week.
Seven skaters (and one assistant coach) sat out Tuesday’s workout with flu-like symptoms. Luckily for the team, this moment of poor help falls during a three-day off period, as Boston will not play its next game until Thursday. Claude Julien‘s squad will also get a chance to enjoy a warmer climate this weekend, as the team travels to Florida to face the Lightning and the Panthers in its next two contests.
The ice may not have been crowded on Tuesday, but the stands sure were, with more than 1,000 fans turning out to watch the B’s practice. Check out NESN’s Jamie Erdahl report from Ristuccia Arena in the video above.
