The Bruins have announced that Adam McQuaid and Andy Wozniewski have been recalled from Providence on an emergency basis. With the recall of two defensemen it is likely that Dennis Wideman, who missed the entire third period, will not be available for at least Friday’s game. There is also speculation that Mark Stuart was injured in Monday’s game, meaning the iron man may possibly be unavailable. In addition, Milan Lucic has been placed on LTIR. Placing Lucic on LTIR, has no impact on his status. It is simply a cap procedure allowing them to carry two additional players. With the two additional players, the Bruins would have a total of 24 players on their roster, exceeding the 23 player cap limit. However, placing Lucic on LTIR means he must miss a minimum of ten games and 24 calendar days (retroactive to the last game played), meaning he is still available to come back and play in the Winter Classic.
