PHILADELPHIA — After being taken to a Philadelphia hospital after falling head-first into the boards late in the first period, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid will travel back to Boston with the team, Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] said after Boston’s 3-2 overtime win.

McQuaid was shaken after tripping over the leg of Mike Richards [2] and falling into the boards. He was tended to on the ice by Bruins medical staff before being helped off by teammates Milan Lucic [3] and Zdeno Chara [4] and taken to a Philadelphia hospital.

“Adam is coming back home with us,” Julien said. “He’s on his way back. He was sent to the hosital for further evaluation. I don’t know the [complete] details but he’s coming back with us and that’s a good sign in itself. Our D did a great job of stepping up.”

The Bruins were forced to play with five defenseman for the rest of the game, including overtime. Dennis Seidenberg [5] played 36 minutes while Chara played 31 minutes and had to leave briefly after a long shift in overtime before returning.
