Bruins' Seindenberg out 8 weeks after surgery

Seidenberg.jpgOn Saturday we reported that Dennis Seidenberg had to leave the
Bruins game due to a lacerated wrist, which would require 15 stitches to
close. Today, we’ve received word that Seidenberg will most likely miss
the remainder of the season (unless the Bruins find a way to get to
game six of the Stanley Cup finals) after having surgery on that wrist
to repair a damaged tendon.

Kevin
Dupont of the Boston Globe
has some interesting notes on the
incident from the weekend, in which the Bruins also lost Mark Stuart for
two weeks thanks to finger surgery.

Not a good trip
to Toronto for the Black-and-Gold. In a span of less
than 24 hours they lost two of their key backliners, after initial
indications from hospital examinations there had the club believing both
players would not be sidelined for any significant time.

Stuart
had been diagnosed with an infection in his finger, while Seidenberg
was told in Toronto that there was no internal damage to his wrist. He
had the surgery only after being unable to make it through a morning
workout on Monday.

Think the Toronto hospitals have it out for the
Bruins? Nahhh….

    Wonderful. It just keeps on getting better for the Bruins… can’t wait to watch them get eaten alive by the Caps next week. Seidenberg was playing pretty damn well actually before getting hurt, without him they’re definitely worse-off.
