WILMINGTON — The Bruins returned to practice at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday after an ugly 4-1 loss to the Canadiens on Tuesday.

Prior to the rest of the team taking the ice, a group of players consisting of Shane Hnidy, Patrice Bergeron [1], Tyler Seguin [2], Matt Bartwkoswki, Daniel Paille [3] and Brad Marchand [4] took shots on goaltenders for Tim Thomas [5] and Tuukka Rask [6]. There were reports that Thomas may have suffered a hand injury Tuesday morning, but Thomas seems fine.

Zdeno Chara [7] was on the ice when the rest of the team came out, which was a little after 12:40 p.m. We’re awaiting word on the result Chara’s call with the league this morning after he was tossed for a his hit on Max Pacioretty [8] on Tuesday night. Word on Pacioretty via the Canadiens that the Habs forward suffered a fractured vertebrae and a severe concussion on the play.

The skate also featured some tweaking of the lines. Looks like Rich Peverley [9] has jumped up to the second line, with Mark Recchi [10] dropping back onto Chris Kelly [11]‘s line.

Still no sign of Andrew Ference [18], though Matt Kalman at The Bruins Blog reported Wednesday that he skated earlier in the day.
