Adam McQuaid was back with his Boston teammates on Tuesday after missing Monday's match due to personal reasons, but he didn't suit up against New Jersey.
He was away from the team in order to mourn the death of his paternal grandmother in Canada. McQuaid was scheduled to arrive back in town late Monday, but some bad weather delayed his flight so coach Claude Julien decided to give him the day off. He should be ready to play on Thursday. We would also like to express our condolences for his loss.
