Two steps forward, one back: Bruins lose Seidenberg

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.
