Add Daniel Paille to the growing list of Boston Bruins currently out of the lineup due to injury, and in Shawn Thornton‘s case a suspension.

Paille has been sent been sent back to Boston while the Bruins continue their road trip through Western Canada, due to an undisclosed upper-body injury, according to the club’s Twitter account.

Paille, 29, has three goals and five points in 30 games for Boston this season.

The Bruins are already without forwards Loui Eriksson (concussion, put on injured reserve); Chris Kelly (broken ankle, put on long-term injured reserve); Dougie Hamilton (lower-body); and Adam McQuaid (lower-body).

The Bruins continue their road trip Thursday against the Edmonton Oilers, then it’s on to Vancouver to play the Canucks.

That Saturday night game at Rogers Arena will be the first time the Bruins have played in Vancouver since winning the Stanley Cup in Game 7 of the championship series against the Canucks.

    It just isn’t ending for the Bruins.

    Not an injury, but Rask has also gone down with the flu today, so that’s another player that you can add to that list.

    What a brutal run! Just a blessing that Marchand and Miller weren’t injured on suspendable plays. And people wonder why the B’s stick up for each other….so many dirty players out there!

      “So many dirty players out there” ….hmm…well I guess that includes Marchand as one of them. Every team has a dirty player or two on them. You say the Bruins are the only ones who stick up for their teammates? Last I checked every team sticks up for their fellow teammates. The Bruins aren’t “Angels” on the ice and neither are the Penguins much like every other team.

        I never said the B’s were the only one’s who stood up nor did I say they were angels, other than that your comment is correct, lol!!

    Bruins haters, “are you not entertained”?

  4. cspsrbums - Dec 11, 2013 at 11:29 PM

    So like this hasn’t happened to other teams before ? Who cares deal with it like all the other teams do and don’t make excuses.

    • theskinsman - Dec 12, 2013 at 5:24 AM

      Make excuses? May I refer you to the current standings, where the Bruins are in 1st place? Brilliant comment.

    • jpelle82 - Dec 12, 2013 at 11:38 AM

      pens are worse off than the bruins right now as far as injuries and man games lost…and they are in 1st place in their division too. i dont see anyone on here making excuses either

    The Bruins aren’t making excuses, just winning with depth. It’s hard not to like the play of the kids who have come up from Providence. It will serve the Bruins better in the long run. I’d be us more worried if this were late March.

    Now it’s time for the Bruin’s propaganda machine (NESN) to post a video of some random hockey play and blaming it on Paille’s injury.

    • dropthepuckeh - Dec 12, 2013 at 8:27 AM

      Good point, probably a lingering injury from a cheap shot from the Penguins last weekend. We should check the tape….

    Chara no like flu bug. It makes Chara’s little bears unhappy. Chara very proud of little bears from Providence.

    Chara like big group hug after goal is scored.

    Flu effecting 6-7 players at this point but no room to take a seat with so many guys injured. Campbell looked like death the other night during the Calgary game but soldiered through it. Good opportunity for the young guys to see some ice in the Show and get some experience. Reilly Smith continues to be the sleeper in the Seguin trade. Love to see him getting his confidence and the depth and youth on the blue line is encouraging.

    Typical boston crying about injuries like they are the only team that has them. And one of those players missing would still be playing if he didnt assault another player so cry me a river.

    • dropthepuckeh - Dec 12, 2013 at 12:07 PM

      Who is crying about injuries? It’s a story about another player hurt and people are commenting on it, relax man. Thornton will take his punishment like a man and nobody is saying he should be playing. The Bruins are continuing to win so it is hardly making excuses. Are you another name from Habsman/ greetmtlittleboy? Smells like it.

      Not sure if you know this but when you read the articles about a team, it’s not coming directly from the team themselves. Hopefully, this clears things up for you bud!

    Typical Montreal fan trolling and whining. Diving practice out or something?

    Shouldn’t you be typing in French? N’est-ce pas?

  11. irokkit - Dec 12, 2013 at 10:50 AM

    I’m French Canadian by default. I grew up in Boston.

    It’s that F’n Montrealbbr and his pathetically shallow comments that make me want to drive his numbers through the glass!!!

    You are brain dead! You must forget the 70’s and early 80’s when Le Habitant’s employed the works if many a pugilist as well. Now, I understand that was a long time ago, but stop with your blatant BS about the physicality of today’s game. It’s not anyone’s fault that the Canadian organization has decided to draft, develop and trade for small skilled players. So you dan leave your penis envy at the bathroom stall because your “teams” philosophy is archaic and miscalculated for the times. I’m sure if Larry Robinson read any if your words he would drive directly to your house and rip that Red C off your bedroom wall.

    Ps. I’ll email him and tell him to bring latex gloves to protect him from the DNA splatter on it.

      funny thing is, canadien’s fans have no leg to skate on when it comes to physicality, especially this year. they have brandon proust and george parros on their team, two very physical players. so unless i’m wrong, it looks like they have no problem mucking it up with the rest of em’. astonishingly, they are also near the top of the league in fights.

      this, as a bruins fan scares me, but it also means i don’t want to hear any whining about the physicality of the games from them.

  12. dropthepuckeh - Dec 12, 2013 at 12:13 PM

    Given the wrath of concussions and the league’s efforts to eliminate so many head shots from the game I wonder if teams are going to be built differently in the near future. It seems as though Buffalo, Montreal and Toronto bulked up recently in response to the Bruins big guys pushing them around. I am not trying to incite any trolls, just my perception and that of many. I wonder though with all of the suspensions and injuries if the Detroit and past Montreal model might make more sense going forward. Smaller but fast forwards who don’t mix it up much. If they continue to crack down on fighting and big hits, the smaller more skilled players are going to be the ones benefitting as everyone else will be suspended or a liability to sign to a deal.

    I am not advocating a move to this style of play but given the past few years wonder if this is where we are trending….

    Although with all the facts surrounding the NFL and their reports, investigations and the results and continued research on the (not sure exactly, sorry) CTE??
    Anyways…concussion science. It makes lots of sense for the league to aggressively deter all head related…incidents.
    With the average size if NHL players erupting, smaller skilled towards….utt uuuuh!!!
    With the rules changing, the athletes growing, the conditioning practices and strength increasing. The game is getting faster and thus more dangerous.
    Smaller….no way jose
