The Boston Bruins will be on the ice against the St. Louis Blues without one of their best defensemen. According to ESPN Boston,
Boston Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg has been ruled out for Thursday night’s game against the St. Louis Blues with a lower-body injury, coach Claude Julien announced after the team’s morning skate.
Seidenberg suffered the injury early in the first period of Tuesday’s 2-1 win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden and did not return. He also did not skate Thursday morning.
“As far as tonight, he’s not in,” Julien said. “He’s day-to-day and he’s working out. It’s probably one of those situations, I would put it, more or less, could be seven days, maybe less.”
Seidenburg isn’t the only Bruin who will be missing tonight’s game when legendary Bruin Bobby Orr drops the puck. Adam McQuaid will also not be playing tonight.
McQuaid has been skating since Monday, but Thursday was the first time he’s practiced with the team since the injury. Participating in a full practice on Friday, and how the injury reacts, will give him a better indication of whether he’ll be ready for Saturday against the Hurricanes.
Hopefully for Boston, Seidenberg and McQuaid will be suited up real soon, as their help is surely needed.
