Bruins prepare for Canadiens

WILMINGTON — With the Canadiens coming to town Thursday, the Bruins returned to practice Wednesday after Tuesday’s 5-3 come-from-behind win over the Jets.

All members were present for the B’s, including the suspended Brad Marchand [1]. Normally the team’s second-line left winger, Marchand skated as the extra forward on the third line with Chris Kelly [2], Rich Peverley [3] and Zach Hamill.

The Habs, who are currently 12th in the Eastern Conference, are coming off a 3-0 loss to the Blues Tuesday night.

Thursday marks the Bruins’ final game of a four-game homestand before they hit the road for four in a row. Coach Claude Julien [4] said he expects to call a forward up from Providence for the trip, as the Marchand-less B’s currently do not have an eligible 13th forward. Assume that player will be Jordan Caron.
