Help is on the way: Lucic practices, Savard skates

There were a couple of welcome faces at the rink today as the Bruins practiced at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington.

Milan Lucic, who has been nursing a broken finger, participated in his first full practice since suffering the injury back on October 16th in a game against the Dallas Stars. Lucic had been skating with the team since last week, but this was the first day he was cleared for contact. Lucic is considered a game-time decision for Thursday night's game in Atlanta.

Marc Savard, who is recovering from a broken foot was on the ice before practice skating with strength and conditioning coach John Whitesides. Savard's recovery is ahead of schedule and he is expected to practice with the team tomorrow. There is no time line set for his return to game action.

Shawn Thornton was the only absence today in Wilmington, who was likely given a maintenance day
