Daniel Paille skates, ‘no updates’ on injured Bruins

Posted By DJ Bean On April 18, 2014 @ 10:21 am In General | No Comments

Bruins forward Daniel Paille [1] skated with defenseman Adam McQuaid prior to Friday’s morning skate, which might suggest he will not be in the lineup for Game 1 of the first round of the playoffs against the Red Wings. Paille has been out since last Saturday with what appeared to be a head injury.

The morning skate was optional, with Chris Kelly [2] and Matt Bartkowski — neither of whom have practiced this week — among the missing. That group of absent players also included Zdeno Chara [3], Tuukka Rask [4], Jarome Iginla, Milan Lucic [5], Kevan MillerĀ andĀ David Krejci [6].

Following the skate, Claude Julien [7] said there were “no updates” to offer on the status of his players.

Before you rule out Paille, here’s a quick conspiracy theory: Considering morning skates are non-contact, perhaps the B’s just had Paille do his work before to throw folks off the scent as to his availability. However, his skating beforehand should be taken as a sign he won’t play.
