McQuaid Leaves Game in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL - Adam McQuaid did not return to Sunday's game in Chicago after the second period. The was no further update yet on his condition following the game.

The Bruins were defeated by the Blackhawks, 3-2, in the shootout.

"I don't like saying it the night of, because he needs to be looked at by a doctor, we'll look at him tomorrow [Monday]," said Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien. "Just obviously not good enough to finish the game, but we'll evaluate him and at least give you a precise diagnosis on him."

McQuaid's last shift ended at 8:34 into the second, during which he recorded a shot on goal. The defenseman finished the game with 8:57 in ice-time and a plus-1 rating, after assisting on Brad Marchand's goal that made it a 1-1 game with 19 seconds left in the first period.

It's not the first time this season the Bruins have had to play down a defenseman. It usually means heavy minutes logger Zdeno Chara racks up the ice time. He played nearly half the game, logging 28:08, with Johnny Boychuk at 26:03.

"We talked about it, that we only had five D left, so every time when that happens, you've got to try to help out the D as much as you can, so you kind of push yourself to make a second and third effort," said David Krejci, who led all Bruins forwards with 21:37 in ice time.

"So I thought we did a pretty good job of helping out the D. The outcome wasn't the one we wanted, but we'll take one point."

As of Sunday following the game, McQuaid's status for Monday's game against the Los Angeles Kings at TD Garden was not yet known.

The Bruins only traveled with six defensemen on their road trip through Dallas and Chicago. Dougie Hamilton stayed back in Boston, recovering from a concussion.
