Adam McQuaid continues skating as Bruins practice Friday

WILMINGTON — The non-Olympian Bruins took the ice Friday at Ristuccia Arena, skating for the second straight day as the league prepares to resume the NHL [1] schedule next week.

After calling up Alexander Khoklachev and Craig Cunningham for Thursday’s practice, the B’s returned both players to Providence and recalled Justin Florek and Matt Lindblad. Adam McQuaid, who has not played since Jan. 19 due to a lower-body injury, skated for the second straight day.

Missing were Olympians Patrice Bergeron [2], Tuukka Rask [3], Loui Eriksson, Zdeno Chara [4], David Krejci [5] and Claude Julien [6]. Reilly Smith was absent, with assistant coach Doug Houda saying the player was under the weather.
