Wideman out for Monday matinee against Avalanche

Boston Bruins [1] defenseman Dennis Wideman [2] will miss Monday afternoon’s game with a left shoulder injury sustained during Saturday night’s game against the New York Islanders [3]. Wideman hit the boards awkwardly in the third period of the shootout win over the Isles, and B’s head coach Claude Julien [4] termed the blueliner “day-to-day” prior to Monday’s matinee against the Colorado Avalanche [5]. Johnny Boychuk [6] was a healthy scratch for the first four games of the season, but will dress and play in Wideman’s place in Monday’s lineup.

“It’s not a long-term injury and it’s being evaluated every day,” said Julien. “If he practices then it’s a good sign for Friday, so we’re going to evaluate him as we move on here. It’s nothing more than a day-to-day situation.”
