Bruins' McQuaid unable to play against 'Canes
BOSTON -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, who missed Saturday night's game at Chicago, did not take the pregame skate with the club prior to Boston's game against Carolina at TD Garden.

McQuaid has been bothered by neck pain ever since he crashed into the end boards last week in the third period of a loss at the RBC Center. He practiced with the team Monday and took the morning skate, but was scratched for the game.

In McQuaid's place, rookie Matt Bartkowski again dressed as the sixth defenseman.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
