Neither David Pastrnak (bruised shoulder) nor Gregory Campbell (core) practiced Tuesday, and both will miss Tuesday night’€™s preseason game against the Canadiens. Linus Arnesson (groin) skated on his own Monday and is getting closer to rejoining practices.

Campbell has yet to participate in training camp practices.

“He’€™s getting better every day is what I’€™ve been told. He hasn’€™t skated yet, but he’€™s really feeling optimistic,’€ Claude Julien said before the team left for Montreal Tuesday. “From what I’€™m being told by our trainers, he’€™s getting closer and closer.”

Pastrnak left the first of two sessions Saturday with after getting hit into the boards. He has not taken the ice since.

The 2014 first-round pick spent his only full day of camp, Friday, on a line with David Krejci.

“Pastrnak is still day-to-day. He’€™s feeling better all the time as well,”€ Julien said. “€œI would put [him and Campbell] in the same boat,’€ he said. ‘€œTrainers haven’€™t told me that they’€™re ready to practice yet, but they’€™re getting close and that’€™s the report that I’€™m getting from our guys.”

Craig Cunningham, who was recently dealing with mono, joined training camp Tuesday.

WILMINGTON — The Bruins continued training camp with two practices at Ristuccia Arena Monday. The team was still split into two squads, though they were different from the two groups the B’€™s had used in the first two days of practices.

David Pastrnak (shoulder) did not practice Monday, while Gregory Campbell (core) and Linus Arnesson (groin) also were absent. Milan Lucic, who did not play in Sunday’€™s scrimmage as he continued his recovery from wrist surgery, did take part in Monday’€™s practice.

With Reilly Smith and Torey Krug still without contracts, Seth Griffith remained on Patrice Bergeron‘€™s line in place of Smith, with Brad Marchand in his usual spot on the other wing. Matt Fraser and Loui Eriksson flanked David Krejci. Pastrnak had been on Krejci’s right wing until he suffered his shoulder injury in the first of two sessions for his group on Saturday.

The Bruins have a busy week of preseason games ahead of them, as they will play four games this week beginning with an exhibition against the Canadiens Tuesday night in Montreal.

David Krejci's first line is undergoing its biggest change yet.</p>
<div class=



WILMINGTON — Milan Lucic said after Saturday’€™s practice that he is happy with his recovery from wrist surgery thus far.

Lucic has taken some contact in training camp so far, and though his status for preseason games is unknown, he is getting more and more comfortable.

“It’€™s been better than what I expected, which is obviously a good thing,” Lucic said. “Just seeing my progression over the last two weeks, where it’€™s gone, it’€™s been good. My shooting feels ‘€” I’€™m not going to say it’€™s completely back to normal, but I can get to where I can get full pressure into my shot and all that type of stuff.

“It’€™s just the battle stuff. I haven’€™t really practiced forechecking and hitting and stuff like that yet. That obviously doesn’€™t come until game time. As of right now, I think it’€™s just being smart and going about everything the right way and taking it step-by-step.’€

The Bruins have a scrimmage Sunday in Providence and four preseason games this week.

“The games will come whenever I’€™m ready to play,” Lucic said. “You don’€™t want to put yourself in a position where you’€™re having setbacks right away.”

WILMINGTON –” David Pastrnak suffered a shoulder injury during the first of two training camp practice sessions Saturday and did not return to the ice.

WILMINGTON ‘€” David Pastrnak left the ice during the first of two training camp practice sessions Saturday and did not return.

Pastrnak, the Bruins’€™ first-round pick in June’€™s draft, left early on in the first session and was not on the ice for the second one. He had taken a hit into the boards prior to leaving the ice.

With Pastrnak done for the day, Tyler Randell skated on David Krejci‘€™s right wing, with Matt Fraser playing on the left side. Fraser and Pastrnak had been Krejci’€™s linemates to open training camp Friday, with Randell rotating in.

WILMINGTON –€” As Peter Chiarelli had previously implied, David Pastrnak was teamed with David Krejci to begin training camp Friday.

Pastrnak, a Czech right wing who grew up idolizing Krejci, was on the right wing of Krejci’€™s line, with Matt Fraser playing on the other side. Milan Lucic was in the other of the two practice groups.

“€œIt’€™s pretty hard,’€ Pastrnak said of the practice. “On the ice, they’€™re NHL players, so you have to adjust and try to keep going with them and play your best.”

Tyler Randell also saw some time on Krejci’€™s right wing, but it was mostly Pastrnak, whom the Bruins selected with the 25th overall pick in June’€™s draft.

Krejci hinted that Pastrnak would be on his line for Sunday’€™s black and gold scrimmage in Providence.

“For me, to play with David, he’€™s obviously a Czech guy, he’€™s got great hands, he’€™s got really good speed,”€ Krejci said. ‘€œIt was alright today. We didn’€™t do too much line drills today out there, so just take it day by day.”
