The Boston Bruins Forward Daniel Paille may return to the Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Montreal Canadiens. The series is scheduled to start later this week.
Daniel Paille, who hasn’t played since sustaining a concussion on April 12, took contact during perform at TD Garden on Tuesday.
Brad Marchand missed practice for an undisclosed reason and forward Chris Kelly (back Injury) remained out. Adam McQuaid (quad Injury) and Corey Potter (upper body Injury) were also missing, but defenseman Dennis Seidenberg’s rehabilitation from an ACL/MCL injury continued with some non-contact drills with his team-mates.
Paille is now available and the Bruins might make their first change of their forward lines of the playoffs over the Canadiens. Jordan Caron filled in for Paille on the line with center Gregory Campbell and right wing Shawn Thornton during the Bruins’ 5-game defeat of the Detroit Red Wings in the first round.
Paille had 9 goals and 9 assists in 72 games this season. He’s also a key penalty-killer. But his season was sidetracked 3 times by head injuries, including the latest one caused by a hit from Buffalo Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe. Paille told the frequency of his injuries slowed his return to the line-up.
