Adam McQuaid absent again, Bruins work on power play

WILMINGTON – Adam McQuaid was once again absent from Bruins’ practice Tuesday, as the defenseman is still out with what the team is now calling an upper-body injury.

The lines and defensive pairings were the same as Monday, and both Tuukka Rask [1] and Johnny Boychuk [2] were on the ice with full participation. Mike Mottau served as the seventh defenseman.

Here are the lines and defensive pairings:

Milan Lucic [3]David Krejci [4]Rich Peverley [5]
Brad Marchand [6]Patrice Bergeron [7]Tyler Seguin [8]
Benoit Pouliot – Chris Kelly [9]Brian Rolston [10]
Daniel Paille [11]/Jordan Caron – Gregory Campbell [12]Shawn Thornton [13]

Zdeno Chara [14]Dennis Seidenberg [15]
Andrew Ference [16]Johnny Boychuk [2]
Greg Zanon – Joe Corvo

The B’s got a good amount of power play work in as well. The units are as follows.

PP1: Chara, Corvo, Krejci, Lucic, Rolston
PP2: Seidenberg, Peverley, Bergeron, Marchand, Seguin

According to the Washington Post [17], here are the lines from Tuesday’s practice. Note that Marcus Johansson is not on the first line with Alexander Ovechkin and Brooks Laich. Instead, Troy Brouwer is skating on the right wing on Washington’s top line.
