Seidenberg: I\'m feeling good
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg was all smiles after Friday’s optional morning practice as he addressed the media about the infection in the cut on his left leg.

Seidenberg will move forward on a day-to-day basis.

“I’m on antibiotics – that’s the only thing and I’m feeling good,” he said.

Seidenberg was cut by goaltender Tim Thomas’ skate on Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings, as Thomas sprawled to make a save.

The same injury happened to No. 44’s right leg last year, also cut by Thomas' skate.

“It’s probably six inches, it’s exactly the same cut,” Seidenberg said. “I don’t know if anyone knows – last year, I had my right leg cut by Timmy, and this year it’s my left knee by Timmy.

However, the Bruins blueliner was in good spirits.

“If it ends like last year, then it will be a lot of good,” he said with a smile.

After the game, Seidenberg said he was unsure if the cut was infected, but checked with the team doctors the next morning as a precaution to avoid missing a long period of time.

“I mean it was swollen, but I showed it to the doctor before the [Sunday] game and he was kind of concerned and said, ‘We’ll take a look at it after the game and see what we should do,’” Seidenberg said. “I got an IV after the game and then the next morning he looked at it again and I had to go to the hospital, got some treatment and [now] I’m fine.”

In the meantime, Seidenberg is looking forward to getting back on the ice to help his team clinch a playoff spot.

If the Buffalo Sabres lose to the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday, the Bruins will clinch a spot. If the Penguins win, the Bruins can clinch a playoff spot with their next point.

“I think everybody’s eager to get that done and get that over with,” Seidenberg said. “But at the end, we’re preparing for the playoffs and want to play every game like we want to play in the playoffs and we’re in a good way right now and we don’t want to stop.

"Once we clinch, we want to keep improving and getting ready for the playoffs.”
