The Boston Bruins had a historic comeback in Game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night and the fan base and team is riding high with emotion. Unfortunately for the team, there was a significant injury during the game that happened to be overlooked. Boston defenseman Dennis Seidenberg reportedly suffered a leg injury after a collision with Toronto’s Matt Frattin. The injury limited Seidenberg to just 37 seconds of playing time.
Bruins head coach Claude Julien said that the team will learn the significance of the injury today.
“He wanted to (continue), but when he couldn’t, it was better to take (him) out than to make it worse,” Julien said, according to the Boston Herald. “It wouldn’t have helped us, plus, it would have made his injury probably even worse.
Seidenberg was walking with a limp after the game, but he will have until Thursday to fully recover.
If he is unable to go for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the New York Rangers, it would be a major loss for the Bruins already ailing defense.
