The Bruins practiced earlier today in advance of heading to Detroit to play the Red Wings tomorrow night, and as it turns out, they're dealing with another injury.
#NHLBruins updates per Bruce Cassidy:— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) November 7, 2019
Jake DeBrusk has a lower-body injury and will not travel. Still being checked out.

I'm not sure when, exactly, Jake DeBrusk got injured, but it must have been sometime late in Tuesday's loss to Montreal.
DeBrusk's injury kind of helps explain why both Peter Cehlarik and Zach Senyshyn were called up today, as the Bruins are going to need extra forwards.
With DeBrusk out and those 2 up today, here's what the Bruins' practice lines looked like:
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak
Peter Cehlarik - David Krejci - Danton Heinen
Anders Bjork - Charlie Coyle - Zach Senyshyn
Chris Wagner - Sean Kuraly - Brett Ritchie
Interestingly, the defense pairs got a little jumbled in practice:
Zdeno Chara - Connor Clifton
Torey Krug - Brandon Carlo
Matt Grzelcyk - Charlie McAvoy
Bruce Cassidy also stated that Tuukka Rask will start tomorrow night, which makes sense. After a rough performance, they likely want to give him a shot to get back out there ASAP.
