Claude Julien: ‘I’d be very surprised’ if Dennis Seidenberg played Game 7

There is virtually no shot that Dennis Seidenberg will be available to play in Wednesday’s Game 7 of the second round against the Canadiens, but it was a question worth asking in Claude Julien‘s press conference following the morning skate.
Seidenberg, who took contact Monday for the first time, was a participant in Wednesday’s morning skate. Considering he is working his way back from a torn ACL and MCL, you would think he would need at least a week’s worth of contact before he would even enter the discussion as a playing possibility.
Julien was asked if there was any chance that Seidenberg would play Wednesday, leading to the following exchange:
“Uh,” Julien said, pondering. “I don’t think so.”
“That’s not a ‘no,'” replied the reporter.
“I’d be very surprised,” said Julien.
Should the Bruins advance, Seidenberg could be a possibility at some point during the Eastern Conference finals or Stanley Cup final.
