Practice updates: Jake DeBrusk is out against Detroit

New, comments

Another injury up front.

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.
