Adam McQuaid left Thursday's contest against the Chicago Blackhawks with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Adam McQuaid will suit up in Game 1 on Thursday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Apr 11 - 1:12 PM

Adam McQuaid has been competing with Nick Holden for Brandon Carlo's vacant spot on the back end.

McQuaid was in the lineup on Thursday after Holden played alongside Torey Krug on Tuesday night. "Adam's played with Torey," said coach Bruce Cassidy. "Obviously, we're trying to find the right fit there." Boston has two games left on the schedule, so they each could get one more chance to impress before the postseason.

Feb 24 - 6:50 PM

Adam McQuaid logged 15:12 of ice time in his return to the lineup on Wednesday night from a broken right fibula.

Kevan Miller was absent due an illness against Montreal. McQuaid had four shots and two blocks in his first contest since Oct 19. He also saw 1:34 of penalty kill time, including 1:09 during a 5-on-3.
