The Boston Bruins are truly a team with a “day-to-day” status as every passing day seems to bring new injury news.
The Bruins were back on the practice ice today in the final workout before heading on a plane for their annual trek through California. They got some positive news as center David Krejci returned to practice and will travel with the team on the road trip.
However, Brad Marchand and Anders Bjork were absent. After practice, head coach Bruce Cassidy said both players were “nicked up” versus the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. Marchand had just returned to game action after dealing with an upper-body injury that caused him to miss two games last week. Bjork was nailed by Matt Martin with a huge open ice hit in the second period of Saturday’s loss.
Neither Marchand nor Bjork will travel with the team later today, but Cassidy would not rule them out for Wednesday’s game at the Anaheim Ducks. I guess will we have to keep our eyes open at the airport tomorrow to see if either board a plane.
