Wilmington, MA
- The Bruins were back in Wilmington today, but did not skate and instead, participated in off-ice workouts and maintenance, after getting back from NYC late last night following their 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers in OT.

Dennis Seidenberg spoke to media in the locker room and updated us on his condition, a lower-body injury that has kept him out day-to-day.

“Looking at the schedule with games coming up, just want to be smart about it and don’t force it,” said the defenseman, situated near the stick rack in the B’s locker room at Ristuccia.

No. 44 also added that he “definitely” could have been playing if it was playoff time, but wants to remain cautious moving forward.

“Well you have to be [cautious] - I mean, it’s a short season with a lot of games in a short period of time, so you have to be smart about your little problems that you have going on and that’s what we’re doing right now. Just being cautious and hopefully I’m ready to go soon.”

“It’s more ore less seeing how it feels,” he added. “Obviously, I can skate, but it’s something you have to be careful with.”

“Seidenberg didn’t skate today because nobody did - otherwise he would have been on the ice with everybody else,” Coach Julien said to media today. “Again, he’s been a day-to-day situation and that hasn’t changed. He’s practicing - he’s close to it.”

The defenseman took the ice for morning skate at Madison Square Garden prior to Wednesday’s tilt against the Rangers and had been deemed a “game-time decision” by Coach Julien, but it still being careful, and will take it, literally, day by day.

“We’ll see tomorrow after skate,” Seidenberg said on his chances of suiting up Friday night against the New York Islanders on home ice at TD Garden. “See how it goes tomorrow morning and then go from there.”

“A lot of it, this time of year, is about us making the right decision for the long hall versus the short term.”
