Daniel Paille out vs. Canadiens with concussion

MONTREAL — Bruins forward Daniel Paille [1] 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 [2] 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 [3] and is expected to play in Paille’s usual spot Wednesday.
