Boston Bruins  defenseman Dennis Wideman  will miss Monday afternoon’s game with a left shoulder injury sustained during Saturday night’s game against the New York Islanders . Wideman hit the boards awkwardly in the third period of the shootout win over the Isles, and B’s head coach Claude Julien  termed the blueliner “day-to-day” prior to Monday’s matinee against the Colorado Avalanche . Johnny Boychuk  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.”
