Kelly, McQuaid, return to the ice

Kelly, McQuaid, return to the ice

The Boston Bruins might have had the day off to rest up after they returned home from last night’s 2-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres – their second game of a back-to-back this past weekend. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t anything newsworthy on their day off.

With the trade deadline looming, the Black and Gold got some good news as both Chris Kelly (broken tibia) and Adam McQuaid (shoulder strain) skated for the this afternoon at the TD Garden for the first time since suffering their respective injuries.

“Adam and I both skated this morning,” Kelly said at the sixth annual Cuts for a Cause event today at the Royale Nightclub in Boston. “And it felt pretty good to be out there.”

Neither Kelly (out indefinitely), or McQuaid (originally out 4-6 weeks) have officially set a timetable to return to the Bruins’ roster. But according to CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty, Kelly could return to the lineup by the end of the regular season, while McQuaid might have to wait until the Stanley Cup Playoffs to return.

While he hasn’t had the most productive season, Kelly’s presence has sorely been missed. The Bruins were 17-3-3 with him in the lineup, but since his injury they are an even 5-5-1.

Kelly’s recovery would certainly be a welcome sight for fellow linemate Rich Peverley.

“He’s a guy that certainly makes me a better player, and we really miss his positioning and hockey smarts,” Peverley said. “It’s great news when he’s on the ice, and we hope he’s back soon.”

Here’s video of Peverley speaking at the Cuts for a Cause event this afternoon.
