Patrice Bergeron was given the day off Monday as the Bruins prepared for Tuesday'€™s game against the Kings, with Claude Julien saying that it was a rest day and not injury-related. Though Bergeron was absent, the rest of the Bruins'€™ lines remained the same, with Tyler Randell subbing on the first line for practice. Adam McQuaid once again practiced with the B'€™s, though he is not expected to return to the lineup Tuesday. "Every day is a better day for Mac," Julien said. "We'€™re going to keep looking at it that way and when he'€™s ready we'€™ll look forward to putting him in." Julien said he does not know whether Malcolm Subban'€™s fractured larynx will end the goaltender'€™s season. Subban was transferred to Mass General Hospital Sunday after getting hit in the throat during warmups of Providence'€™s game in Portland Saturday and getting rushed to a local hospital. David Pastrnak said that he texted with Subban, saying that while the player is in good spirits. "He'€™s OK," Pastrnak said. "He texted that he'€™s alright." The Bruins have not provided any other update other than to say that Subban is out indefinitely.
