Adam McQuaid leaves early; maintenance days for Rich Peverley, Dennis Seidenberg

Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg [1] and forward Rich Peverley [2] were the only two to not take the ice for Wednesday’s practice at TD Garden, with Claude Julien [3] saying afterward that he had given the two players maintenance days.

Adam McQuaid, meanwhile, left the practice early after he was cut on the chin, but there didn’t seem to be much concern from Julien’s end.

Aside from Peverley being out, the forward lines were the same.
