Forbort returns to practice as a full participant in Florida


Sunrise, Florida.Derek Forport He was a full participant in practice on Tuesday for the first time since fracturing a finger when he blocked a shot in Pittsburgh on Nov. 1. The Blue Line had been skating on his own for several days but joined the full squad on a late-morning run at FLA Live Arena before Wednesday night’s meeting with the Panthers.


“That was the plan all along,” Forport said of traveling with the team for a short two-game tour through the Sunshine State. “It was fun to be back out there with the guys today. I think [I’m] Beautiful on schedule. The finger feels good. Almost everything. I didn’t feel my hands getting worse, which is hard to tell. it is good. Just trying to hit back, that’s kind of the last step.”

Head coach Jim Montgomery said Fourport’s four- to six-week schedule hasn’t changed. The 30-year-old blue lavender underwent an open reduction and internal fixation surgery on November 3, which put him on track for an early-to-mid-December comeback.

“There’s no updated schedule on him. He’s just starting to get a lot on skates because when his upper body injury heals to where we like it, he’s going to be on skates,” Montgomery said.

“When they told me four to six weeks, I was like, ‘What?’ How is this possible with just one finger? Forburt added. “It’s just the way the break was [stinks] But we’re getting back to it now.”

Forport joked that a broken elevator in his Boston building helped keep him in shape during the three weeks he was away from the action of the game.

“My elevator broke down so I was carrying my dog [Darla] Climbing stairs four times a day, so the air conditioning must be good,” Forport quipped.

Foligno in front

Nick Foligno He went straight back to the well.

Despite taking a puck to his face at the front of the net during a strength-training workout Monday morning—which left him bloodied and requiring four to five stitches—he slipped back into place on the second unit against the Lightning.

And the veteran forward looked no worse than his wear, hitting the green while stretching and diving for a loose puck at the top of the crease and hitting it off Tampa goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy to put Boston ahead, 2-1, at 5:07 of the second.

“It’s unrealistic,” Montgomery said. “Another guy who’s been a leader in the league for a long time. You can see why. He’s really dedicated to the team, loves and enjoys his role as he helps us with our solid play, helps us 5v5, helps with our crushing game, helps with our puck game. It’s good to see him rewarded.” “.

Foligno didn’t hesitate to get back in front of the cage, despite the risks he took a few hours earlier.

“It’s a great time to have a beard. Thank you so much.” [Hampus Lindholm]Foligno joked, remembering the shot of the blue liner he grabbed under his chin. This is part of being at the front of the network. Sometimes you’ll take one. Not perfect in practice but they are all good. It’s part of the job.”

Charlie Coyle Foligno’s goal followed just 31 seconds later by scoring from the doorstep—which was confirmed after a review—and got the Bruins back on track as they eventually scored five straight goals after falling behind, 1-0, during the first sleeper. a period.

“I think it was an important goal the time we took the first period,” said Foligno. “Big goal [David Krejci] out of the parity period. But then we wanted to get to our game. We didn’t have that jump that we needed in the first period and they went out and gave a push but I think it shows a lot of what we have here so we don’t get overwhelmed by that either.

“We went out in the second and he just took over. It was nice to be able to get that go-ahead and Coyle follows. That’s what happens with our team, we just come in waves. Good teams do that. It’s very difficult to stop them. The momentum goes that way.” It feels like we’re jumping on board and every line starts moving. It’s dangerous.”

Frederick Seidlenade

Trent Frederick He did not skate during Tuesday practice after suffering an upper body injury Monday night against Tampa. The winger, who was cruising through Tampa territory at high speed, hit Boards shoulder first after leaping forward.

If Frederick, who is considered by day, is unable to play Wednesday night against Florida, Craig Smith He will return to the squad.

“With the great depth we have, I tend to play my smitty anyway,” said Montgomery. “We’ll see how he feels [Wednesday]anyway.”

Smith hasn’t played since November 12 in Buffalo, a four-game stint, and has only been fit in 10 of 19 contests this season.

“He and I had breakfast together this morning,” Montgomery said. “He’s ready. He’s professional. His attitude was fantastic. He’s very much loved by his teammates and he’s a big part of the culture we have there.”

Wait, there’s more

  • Montgomery has no qualms about disappointing the Bruins Wednesday in Florida after Bergeron’s 1,000 surgeThe tenth Point and victory over the three-time Eastern Conference champion. “We have great leaders,” said Montgomery. “It’s that simple. It’s a luxury not to have to go in and warn the team about let’s not worry, let’s not get caught up, let’s not read our press clippings.” Bergeron, Marchand, [David Pastrnak]And the [David] Craigsy, [Charlie] McAvoy, it goes on and on, Foligno. There is an army of leaders out there. I’ve always said this before. We have the best captain in the sport in my opinion.”
  • Marchand, with a goal in Tampa and three assists on Saturday against Chicago, had “two best 5-on-5 games” since returning from injury, according to Montgomery.
