The Boston Bruins returned to the rink this morning following a weekend of back-to-back games, bringing crucial updates about injured players.

Taylor Hall, Nick Foligno (knee), and Derek Forbort (foot) have all been sidelined for an extended period, while Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and Hampus Lindholm were all absent from Sunday's match due to ongoing injuries. In addition, rookie Jakub Lauko suffered an upper-body injury during the game.

Morning Practice Updates



Tuesday's practice session delivered some encouraging news for the team and their supporters, as it has been reported that all injured Bruins, except Lauko and Forbort, are now skating. According to WEEI's Scott McLaughlin:


''Bergeron, Marchand and Lindholm are all on the ice for morning skate today after missing Sunday's game.

Foligno joins Hall in a no-contact jersey. First time he's skated with the main group.

No Lauko, who was banged up Sunday. Steen is still here.''


It's a significant development that veteran Foligno is back on the ice, skating alongside Hall, albeit in non-contact jerseys. It's not unexpected that Forbort remains off the ice, and Lauko appeared to injure his lower back on Sunday afternoon in Raleigh.

Another positive indication is that Bergeron, Marchand, and Lindholm are expected to return to the lineup tonight based on morning line rushes. The Bruins will face the Nashville Predators at 7 pm EST at TD Garden tonight.
