Eric Russo of BostonBruins.com: Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy on Trent Frederic.
“Freddy is getting close. Just a lack of practice. A live practice was good for him. He got some work in. The conditioning factor when you miss that long is still an issue. No practice is an issue. I would say he’d be targeting a little later in the week…I think he needs more reps.”
Frederic has actually missed out on the previous 5 video games with an upper-body injury.
Boston Bruins: Defenseman Charlie McAvoy left last night’s video game. Coach Bruce Cassidy stated that McAvoy got some stitches and “is good,” Cassidy included “let’s hope he wakes up feeling good and is ready to go Friday.”
