Lost in the Boston Bruins’ incredible comeback victory on Monday was the fact that Boston defenseman Dennis Seidenberg was limited to just 37 seconds of playing time.

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.

The 31-year-old blueliner hurt his leg when he collided with Toronto’s Matt Frattin, according to the Boston Herald.

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.”

Boston was already without defenseman Andrew Ference and Wade Redden due to undisclosed injuries. The good news for the Bruins is that their next series doesn’t start until Thursday.
