from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
It’s been a couple of years since Adam McQuaid was able to play his punishing stay-at-home defenseman game without worrying about some health issue or another.
Two years ago, it was returning from a blood clot that left him in a weakened state entering the season. Last season, he was dogged by lower body problems throughout a season that ended for him in January....
“I think he came out and tried to make a statement that he’s ready to play, and that he wants to be here,” said coach Claude Julien. “I thought he played a really strong game. I give him high marks for his first game back.”...
That’s great news for the Bruins in that they may be getting back a player that finished with 15 points and a plus-30 three seasons ago as big, strong bottom-pairing defenseman It’s also a positive development if the B’s opt to deal him from their D-man surplus now that he’s shown he’s once again healthy.
from Mike Cole of NESN,
Bruins coach Claude Julien was clearly agitated with Cooke’s play, a hit that Julien deemed to be too low.
“It’s pretty obvious that it’s a cheap shot from Cooke,” Julien said. “The typical, same guy. He’s gotta go low and getting a guy right around the knee area and turns his back.
Watch the hit below...

Shelley will miss games Tuesday against Pittsburgh and Wednesday at Montreal. He is eligible to return Saturday when the Flyers host the Rangers.
from Douglas Flynn of NESN,
...first-year Flyer Jody Shelley doesn’t possess the reputation of a dirty player. A tough guy sure, his 1,420 penalty minutes in 569 career games in the NHL, most coming in five-minute chunks against willing opponents, attest to that.
But the last 15 PIMs were a little different. They came 5:08 into the second period Saturday night when Shelley appeared to shove Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid from behind as they raced to chase down a puck behind the Boston net. McQuaid crashed face-first into the boards and remained down for several minutes before being helped to the locker room.
