Chara gets the day off, Thomas returns to ice

Bish from BostonBruins.com is reporting that Zdeno Chara is the only player not on the ice in Wilmington this morning. Chara was likely given a "maintenance day" by Claude Julien. Tim Thomas (flu-like symptoms) returned to practice today. The team has assigned goaltender Adam Courchaine to Providence. Courchaine had been called up last week to practice with the team in Thomas' absence.

Bruins shuffle lines

Claude Julien shuffled the lines today in practice: Lucic - Savard - Wheeler Sobotka - Krejci - Kessel Axelsson - Bergeron - Kobasew Thornton - Yelle - Bitz (with Karsums rotating in) Michael Ryder skated today wearing a full cage but did not participate in contact drills.

Quiet Day in Wilmington

Most of the Bruins were given the day off from on-ice training today. Only Manny Fernandez, Byron Bitz, Mark Stuart, Matt Hunwick, and Blake Wheeler skated today under the guidance of assistant coaches Doug Houda and Craig Ramsay and goaltending coach Bob Essensa. The rest of the players worked out off the ice. There is still no real updates on the injuries to Petteri Nokelainen and Chuck Kobasew. Boston.com is reporting that Nokelainen had a doctor's appointment today to examine his eye. Chuck Kobasew was at the rink today for treatment, but Claude Julien doesn't know if he will be able to practice tomorrow.

More Good News

The Globe's Fluto Shinzawa is reporting that Phil Kessel has been cleared for contact and participated fully in this morning's practice. Michael Ryder, who missed last night's game with flu-like symptoms was back at practice today as well. Claude Julien gave the guys that participated in All-Star Weekend the day off again today. Petteri Nokelainen was also absent from practice. No word on why Nokelainen missed practice. My guess would be that he was sent down to Providence, but that is just speculation.
