The Boston Bruins welcomed Daniel Paille (concussion) back to their lineup on Friday for Boston’s 5-0 victory over Ottawa. On top of that, blueliner Adam McQuaid (lower body) returned on Monday, but their luck when it comes to injuries hasn’t reversed entirely.

Defenseman Dennis Seidenberg suffered a possible leg injury when he was tangled up with Ottawa’s Corey Conacher in the third period of Friday’s contest, according to CSN New England.

Seidenberg has been ruled out for Saturday’s game in Ottawa, but his availability beyond that has yet to be determined.

“He’s being evaluated right now,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said.

Boston will certainly miss his presence if he’s gone for any extended period of time. He’s been averaging 21:50 minutes per game and is the team leader in blocked shots.

    Seidenberg’s out tonight. If the Bs call up Warsofsky it’ll be a while before DS is back. If they call up Miller, DS is done for the year.

      ” It might take a couple of weeks for the hyperextended knee to heal, which means an athlete will likely miss games or practice during that time, so that the hyperextended knee is not susceptible to further injury. If the injury is severe, which often means the ligaments or tendons have been torn, surgery might be required to fix the hyperextended knee injury. If surgery is required, an athlete will likely have months of rehabilitation to regain muscle strength and coordination while walking, and he or she will miss up to 1 year of his or her sport”
      I guess tindma is right. If Miller is recalled from the PBruins, Seids is gone for the year (the B’s wouldn’t risk exposing Miller to waivers). A Warsofsky callup WOULD be good news.

      No way he is done for the year. That would entail a torn ACL or MCL..something along those lines. People who tear a tendon don’t get up and skate off. I’m guessing a strain or hyper-extension of some sort.

    For years I’ve muted Cherry every time he’s on the air. Reason? He’s a war-mongering ass-hat. Never skips an opportunity to rara the troups. I love the Bruins….and Cherry was Orr’s coach and friend…and he knows his hockey…. But just because sports are a testosterone infused excuse to get drunk and beat your wife doesn’t mean it also has to be the platform for promoting the evils man inflicts on his neighbor.
    I’m sure this may all seem like dobbledegook to folks who’ve been bombarded with war propaganda since birth…but I’m Canadian.
    Mostly the only war-prop we get is Don Cherry.
    Retire already!

        I was about to write the same thing, talk about left field. What does that post or any of his posts have to do with anything?

      Your team is a bunch of underachieving chokers. Get over it. Poor little Pasquale, season ended by the queen herself.

    This should read: Two steps forward, two steps back.

    Soderberg not traveling to Ottawa after suffering concussion symptoms

    Probably happened when he got hit pacioretty style into the middle glass. I’m just happy they fixed that to make it less dangerous. The curved glass appeared to do its job, could have been a lot worse
