Bruins’ Seidenberg Out Against Capitals

BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Bruins will be without defenseman Dennis Seidenberg Thursday night when they host the Washington Capitals.

Seidenberg suffered a cut on his leg in the Bruins 4-2 win over the LA Kings on Saturday night. He played in the Bruins next two games, logging over 49 minutes of ice time, but the cut became infected and he will now have to sit.

Head coach Claude Julien said he is hopeful Seidenberg will only miss one game.

“Just to play it safe, we’re gonna keep him out,” Julien said after Thursday’s morning skate at the Garden. “It’s just day to day, it’s not long term.”

Seidenberg has four goals and 18 assists in 76 games this season.

Joe Corvo will slide in to Seidenberg’s spot after being a healthy scratch the last two weeks.
