WILMINGTON — The Bruins took the ice at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday morning after picking up their third straight win, a 3-1 victory over Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals at the Verizon Center on Tuesday.
Zdeno Chara was not on the ice with teammates as they opened practice, though everyone else was accounted for. It was simply a day of rest for Chara, who played a game-high 29:05 on Tuesday. The Bruins were not donning their white, gold, grey, and merlot sweaters to signify lines, instead sticking to white, grey, and black as the Bruins worked on special teams.
The power play units in the practice consisted of Dennis Seidenberg, Mark Recchi, Milan Lucic, David Krejci, and Nathan Horton on one, with Johnny Boychuk, Patrice Bergeron, Michael Ryder, Tyler Seguin, and Blake Wheeler making up the other. The team is 1-for-15 on the power play through four games this season.
Marc Savard was at Ristuccia in the morning and took the ice for another skating session, according to a Bruins official. The rehabbing center skated for what was believed to be about 20-25 minutes.
