While the Boston Bruins have not necessarily lacked for offense in their last two games (especially Monday's 8-0 win), forward depth is always welcome as the post-season quickly approaches. The Bruins could gain some depth back if Rich Peverley's latest practices are any indication.â†µ
Comcast Sports Net New England Bruins columnist Joe Haggerty reported Wednesday that the center took a physical and close to normal part in the Bruins practice in San Jose. Dispatched Haggerty from California:â†µ
"It wasn't hand-to-hand combat on the ice, but it was pretty clear Peverley was getting bumped around a little bit during the practice session."â†µ
Peverley practiced Wednesday with the third line, which includes Brian Rolston, Chris Kelly and Benoit Pouliot. He has not seen game action since February 15th because of a knee sprain.â†µ
Despite Peverley's activity level in practice, the Bruins have not announced an exact timetable for his return. The Bruins have three games in four nights in California starting on Thursday against the San Jose Sharks.
