When Kevan Miller was recalled back to Boston, the big question on everyone’s mind was ‘which Bruins blueliner was hurt?’ Adam McQuaid had played a reduced amount of time in the game. He averaged sixteen plus when healthy and only played thirteen in the game against Columbus. They figured he aggravated his previous injury. Then Torey Krug, the hotshot defenseman was also listed day-to-day. His injury was unkown. So, who was going to be out?
That question was answered today. As the Bruins prepare to take on hated rival Montreal tomorrow, it’s become clear that Miller will be replacing McQuaid. Torey Krug has resumed practice. There has been no report on what his injury was or what required his day to day designation. It’s clear that neither Krug or the Bruins will divulge the nature of the injury.
“Yeah, it was good to get back at it today, get out there, skate around, move around a bit,” said Krug after today’s practice. “Just going day by day, wait for the Coach[Claude Julien] to tell me to play, and then I’ll do that.” While he is not a one hundred percent lock for tomorrow’s game, it’s pretty close to that level. Krug’s been explosive for the Bruins so far this season, and having him in the line up gives the Bruins a better chance for a solid game against the Canadiens.
Adam McQuaid did not travel with the team to Montreal. While it’s still listed as a ‘lower body injury’, it’s not certain what exactly happened to him. Rumor around the hockey world says it’s some form of groin pull, but the odds of the Bruins organization revealing the specific nature of an injury are as equal to me winning a Powerball jackpot. Still, we hope Darth Quaider will be back on the ice soon, and showing his opponents how he finds their lack of faith disturbing.
