Daniel Paille out vs. Canadiens with concussion
|03.11.14 at 4:04 pm ET|
MONTREAL — Bruins forward Daniel Paille did not practice Tuesday and will miss Wednesday’s game against the Canadiens with a concussion suffered in the first period of Sunday’s game against the Panthers.
Paille left Sunday’s tilt after taking a big hit from Ed Jovanovski on his first shift of the game. This is the second concussion Paille has suffered this season, as he missed seven games in December with a head injury.
Claude Julien said that Paille is unlikely to play Thursday against the Coyotes as well, though the team hopes to have him back for Saturday’s contest against the Hurricanes.
“He’s feeling much better. Like I said the other day, it’s very minimal, but they deemed it a concussion so he’s going through the protocol right now,” Julien said. “… He’s not playing tomorrow and more than likely not Thursday either, but a very good possibility for Saturday.”
With Paille out, Jordan Caron practiced on the team’s fourth line Tuesday at the Bell Centre and is expected to play in Paille’s usual spot Wednesday.
