LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Bruins center Chris Kelly [1] did not practice with Bruins Wednesday at Whiteface Lake Placid Olympic Center, as he returned to Boston to be evaluated by team doctors. Kelly slid head-first into Carey Price’s net as a result of a shove from Scott Gomez with the B’s on a 3-on-1 in the first period of Monday’s Game 3.

“He just went back to Boston to see our doctors, just to make sure everything is OK,” coach Claude Julien [2] said. “We anticipate him back in Montreal with us tonight.”

Kelly stayed in the game and finished the night with 14:35 of ice time. Julien said the third-line center will play Game 4 in Montreal.

“Everything is alright, according to what we know,” Julien said. “There might be a fracture, but it’s nothing that will prevent him from playing.”
