WILMINGTON – The Bruins have been against dirty hits for some time, and on Friday they saw action taken against one. B’s forward Daniel Paille was suspended for four games Friday following his blindside hit on Stars forward Raymond Sawada in Thursday’s 6-3 victory over Dallas. Paille was given a game misconduct after the play, with Sawada not returning to the game.
Paille was present at Friday’s practice, skating on the fourth line with Shawn Thornton, Gregory Campbell, and Tyler Seguin. The team had called up center Zach Hamill from Providence on Thursday, meaning no move will need to be made to fill his roster spot. Paille will be eligible to return Feb. 15 against the Maple Leafs.
