Morning Skate: Inching closer

Some guys back, some still missing.

The Bruins got good news from yesterday’s practice, with a handful of guys coming back and only two new ones going out.

Bruce Cassidy also (somewhat surprisingly) shed a little light on the reason behind many of the absences, confirming what many people suspected: delayed/inconclusive tests were behind many of the missing.

Anyways, it’s Tuesday, which means just nine days remain before the Bruins’ warm-up game against Columbus.

Here’s to hoping there’s a full complement of players to choose from for that one.

Today’s highlight

Speaking of Columbus, remember this goal? A work of art. Great work by Brandon Carlo before the goal too.
