Bruins' Adam McQuaid (Lower Back) Misses Practice

Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was absent from Wednesday's practice with what is being called a "lower back" injury back. McQuaid reportedly suffered the injury in the third period of Tuesday night's game against the Ottawa Senators.

Speaking after practice, Bruins head coach Claude Julien said that McQuaid was "a little shaken up" after the play. While there is hope that McQuaid will be able to go in tomorrow's game against the Carolina Hurricanes, Julien said his status is still up in the air.

"He got injured last night, so we just felt that it was better to keep him off the ice today," Julien said after Wednesday's practice. "We'll reevaluate his situation tomorrow morning." (via WEEI)

McQuaid's linemate, Andrew Ference will be making his return on Thursday after being suspended for three games after his hit on New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh. If McQuaid is unable to give it a go on Thursday, Ference will likely be paired with Steven Kampfer on the Bruins' third defensive line.
