Proactive Claude Julien says ‘nothing’s changed’ with Adam McQuaid

WILMINGTON — Adam McQuaid was once again absent from Bruins practice on Tuesday as he continues to deal with what the team is calling an upper-body injury.

Things got testy between coach Claude Julien and the media Monday regarding the defenseman’s status and what the identity of the injury, and on Tuesday Julien addressed injuries prior to taking questions.

“Guys, before we get going,” Julien said, “Injury update: It’s the same as yesterday. Nothing’s changed, and that’s where we are.”

McQuaid was initially hurt when he went into the end boards head-first in the Bruins’ March 29 game against the Capitals on a hit from Capitals winger Jason Chimera. The defenseman cut his eye on the play, which led to swelling. He tried to return last Thursday against the Senators while wearing a visor, but left the game in the second period. The team considers him to be day-to-day.

Johnny Boychuk (knee) and Tuukka Rask (abdomen/groin) both practiced Tuesday for the second consecutive day.
