Milan Lucic hasn't been spotted so far, as the Bruins run through a full-ice breakout drill. Lucic took 18 shifts over 14:21 last night, took two penalties and landed a team-high three hits.

Also missing is Shane Hnidy, who was struck in the face by a deflected shot in last night's loss. After the game, Julien wasn't sure if Hnidy received stitches. Update: a reporter who saw him after the game last night confirmed that Hnidy did.

Also missing are Marco Sturm and Patrice Bergeron (both on IR) and Andrew Ference, who is day-to-day recovering from a fractured right leg.

Aaron Ward (charley horse) is taking regular reps with Zdeno Chara. Mark Stuart shifts down to play to the left of Dennis Wideman instead of Matt Hunwick, who is now paired with Lashoff.
