McQuaid cleared to play vs. Habs
By: DJ Bean

Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, who has missed the Bruins' last four games with a neck injury, has been cleared to play Thursday against the Canadiens, with Claude Julien saying the "possibility of him playing is probably very good."

If McQuaid plays, Steven Kampfer will be the team's healthy scratch. Julien said all seven defensemen will be on the ice for warmups. 

It is unclear who will start in goal for the B's, as the team left Thursday's morning skate in a single-file line, with Tuukka Rask exiting ahead of Tim Thomas.

Pats practice: Dowling, Fletcher out

FOXBORO -- Patriots rookie cornerback Ras-I Dowling was not spotted at the start of practice inside the Dana Farber Field House on Thursday as the team continued its preparation for the Steelers on Sunday in Pittsburgh. Dowling has not played since Week 2 against San Diego and has been inactive in three of the last four games with a hip injury. 

Dowling returned to practice on Tuesday and worked out in full pads on Wednesday before missing Thursday. Also missing for the third straight day was linebacker Dane Fletcher, who has been nursing a thumb injury. 

The team worked out in sweats and shells inside on the turf as Bill Belichick moved the team indoors to get out of the raw, rainy weather. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is

Brickley on D&C: 'Huge week' for Bruins

In his weekly interview on the Dennis & Callahan Show, NESN commentator Andy Brickley said that the Bruins, who are 3-5-0, face a potentially pivotal week after a four-day layoff to rest and practice. Brickley said that the Bruins have been made well aware of the fact that teams that are outside of the top eight in their conference on Nov. 1 rarely claw their way into the playoff picture.

That being the case, Brickley described the forthcoming four games on the Bruins schedule as significant. The B's have a home-and-home series with the Canadiens, a home game against the Senators and a road game against the Maple Leafs, all divisional opponents.

"This is a huge week," said Brickley. "It's a big week to me because they're playing four divisional games. ... It's a big week for them to climb...

Mashup: 64 detained at UMass-UNH game

There were substantially fewer people at Saturday's UMass-UNH football game at Gillette Stadium than a typical Patriots game, but the event required more of an effort from police. According to the Attleboro Sun Chronicle, Saturday's "Colonial Clash," which drew a crowd of 19,800, ended with 64 people being placed into custody, compared with 48 at the previous Sunday's Pats game. Most of the fans were placed into protective custody for intoxication. There were 16 criminal arrests, including 10 for minors in possession of alcohol.

Foxboro police chief Edward O'Leary blamed unsanctioned buses from both campuses that arrived late and were filled with intoxicated students.

"It was relatively quiet until the game got under way, when the students arrived from the party buses," O'Leary said, adding that many of those individuals did not even attend the game, instead heading for restaurants and bars at Patriot Place.
