WILMINGTON — David Pastrnak and Torey Krug were both missing from the ice as the Bruins returned to practice Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena.

Pastrnak has missed the last four games with a bruised foot. With Pastrnak still out, Frank Vatrano skated on David Krejci‘s line with Loui Eriksson. Krug’s absence comes with more uncertainty, as no potential injury situation with him has been disclosed to this point.

All other players were on the ice Tuesday. The forward lines were as follows:


The Bruins are in the middle of a three-day stretch of no game action. They had Monday off and will practice again on Wednesday before hosting the Avalanche in the first game of a five-game homestand.

The Bruins sent Max Talbot to Providence on Monday evening, marking  the second time this season they’ve assigned the veteran forward to the AHL.

The demotion comes after last week’s recall, which saw Talbot play three games for the B’s following Chris Kelly‘s regular-season-ending femur fracture. Talbot skated on Boston’s fourth line and killed penalties, never reaching 10 minutes of ice time in a game.

Prior to Talbot’s recall, he had played three games for Providence and recorded four assists. He was waived prior to the start of the season, which allowed the B’s to send to him to Providence on Oct. 27.

The demotion of Talbot presents good news for Frank Vatrano, who appears to be safe on Boston’s roster for the time being. The East Longmeadow native was recalled on Friday to play in place of David Pastrnak, who has missed the last four games with a bruised foot. Vatrano scored in his NHL debut Saturday night against the Canadiens.

The Bruins’ power play has scored seven goals over the team’s last six games. That’s the nice way of putting it.

The Bruins snapped their three-game losing streak Sunday with a 2-1 victory over the Islanders at Barclays Center.

Coming off a frustrating loss to the Canadiens, the B’s jumped out to a 1-0 lead behind a Ryan Spooner goal during a first-period 5-on-3. Patrice Bergeron made it 2-0 in the second period with his fifth goal of the season.

Bergeron took a pair of penalties as well in a game that saw the B’s take seven minor penalties. Johnny Boychuk scored the Islanders’ only goal during a third-period 5-on-3 after Joonas Kemppainen was called for playing the puck with his hand on a faceoff with Kevan Miller already in the box for high-sticking.

Tuukka Rask stopped 36 of the 37 shots he saw after sitting on Saturday vs. the Canadiens.

The victory improved the B’s to 7-6-1 on the season. They’ll be out of action for the next three days before beginning a five-game homestand when they host the Avalanche Thursday at TD Garden.
