Former Bruins player and coach and current television analyst Mike Milbury was charged with assault and battery on a child, threats to commit a crime and disorderly conduct after an incident at a youth hockey game last week in Brookline, according to multiple reports.

Bruins forward Adam McQuaid was fined $2,500 by the NHL Thursday for kneeing Senators forward Nick Foligno. He was not suspended. 

McQuaid extended his left leg and kneed Senators forward Nick Foligno late in the second period in the Bruins' 5-2 win over the Senators. He was given a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct. 

The Bruins' defenseman has not been suspended in his three years in the NHL.

Pardon the baseball lingo in a hockey column, but Adam McQuaid just threw Brendan Shanahan a fastball right down the middle. Shanahan can knock it out of the park, and that might knock the defenseman out of a game or two.

In other words, McQuaid is probably going to be suspended. 



The Bruins picked up their third straight win Wednesday, defeating the Senators, 5-2, on a two-goal night from Daniel Paille.

Rich Peverley got the B's on the board in the first period, but Daniel Alfredsson tied the game 4:23 into the second period. Patrice Bergeron and Paille scored breakaway goals in a 56-second span in the third period, and Jason Spezza made it a 4-2 game when he beat Tim Thomas stick-side for his 10th goal of the season. Paille added his second of the game with just over a minute remaining, beating Craig Anderson with a bomb over the netminder's glove.

If you want proof that history repeats itself, watch the guy wearing No. 63 for the Bruins. 



Responding to a call from his coach to be a "good brat," not a "bad brat," Brad Marchand scored twice off faceoff wins from Patrice Bergeron and Tuukka Rask stopped all 41 shots, as the Bruins won their first game without captain Zdeno Chara, 3-0, over the Kings Tuesday night at TD Garden. It was Rask's ninth career shutout and first this season. He was outstanding in the third, stopping 20 shots, three more than he had to save in his last shutout last March 1 at Ottawa.

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will be between the pipes Tuesday as the Bruins take on the Kings at TD Garden. Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Tuesday's morning skate that he intends to play Thomas Wednesday against the Senators. 

Gregory Campbell was not on the ice for the morning skate. He will miss Tuesday's game and will "probably not" play Wednesday, according to Julien. Campbell is dealing with a foot injury, and Zach Hamill is expected to center the fourth line in his place. 

The NHL fined Bruins forward Brad Marchand $2,500 Monday for slew-footing Penguins defenseman Matt Niskanen last Monday in Pittsburgh. 

Marchand slew-footed Niskanen at 3:19 of the first period of the Bruins' victory, and immediately dropped the gloves with the defenseman for his second fight of the season. In addition to his fighting major, Marchand received a tripping minor.

This is the first time Marchand has been fined this season. He was suspended last season for elbowing Blue Jackets' forward R.J. Umberger in the head.  

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Gregory Campbell, who did not practice Monday for the Bruins, is in a walking boot and is considered questionable for Tuesday's game with an injury suffered when he was hit in the foot with a shot.

While Campbell may be out for the B's, the team did see the return of Daniel Paille to the ice. Paille, who suffered a concussion Thursday, said he has not been feeling symptoms and that he hopes to get back in the lineup this week. Bruins coach Claude Julien considers Paille day-to-day.

WILMINGTON -- Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, who is out with a left leg injury, met with the media Monday at Ristuccia Arena and said that though he doesn't figure to play Monday against the Kings, he considers himself day-to-day. The Boston Globe reported Sunday that the defenseman will be out for at least a week, and that he could be kept out past Christmas if his recovery takes longer.
