The Boston Bruins are getting ready to take on the Carolina Hurricanes for Game 1 of their first round series and hit the ice for the first time today.
Unfortunately for the Bruins two big names were missing from the first day of practice.
It's a scene that we saw unfortunately way too often during the round robin.
Forward David Pastrnak and goalie Tuukka Rask were both missing and it's yet to be confirmed for what reason.
Here's a look at the lines from practice this morning.
Marchand – Bergeron – Kuhlman
DeBrusk – Krejci – Kase
Ritchie – Coyle – Bjork
Nordstrom – Kuraly – Wagner
Chara – McAvoy
Krug – Carlo
Grzelcyk – Lauzon
Moore – Clifton
Absent: Rask, Pastrnak.
