McQuaid misses second straight game

BOSTON -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid missed his second straight game as he was inactive for Tuesday's meeting with the Devils at TD Garden.

McQuaid missed Monday’s 5-3 win against the Carolina Hurricanes to go home for the death of his paternal grandmother, and his return to Boston from Montreal was delayed because of Monday's inclement weather.

He did not arrive in Boston until Tuesday morning and said he was ready to go at the morning skate, but he was scratched shortly before the game.

Aaron Johnson was activated in McQuaid's place.
