McQuaid was injured Thursday night after going face-first into the end boards behind the Boston net from a hit by Capitals forward Jason Chimera. McQuaid was helped off the ice by teammates and did not return. Chimera was given a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct
Julien said Friday that McQuaid is day-to-day.
