Seidenberg is a huge part of the Bruins’ defensive core and any injury that keeps him out of the lineup for a significant period of time will be a big blow to Boston going into their second-round series against the New York Rangers.
Bruins coach Claude Julien wasn’t sure if Seidenberg’s injury would be a long-term problem, but he expects to know more today.
It’s worth noting that Seidenberg was walking after the game, albeit with a limp.
“He wanted to (continue), but when he couldn’t, it was better to take (him) out than to make it worse,” Julien said. “It wouldn’t have helped us, plus, it would have made his injury probably even worse.”
