CALGARY, AB - The Bruins can’t catch a break. But they’ll keep powering forward.
Following the team’s pregame skate in Calgary at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Tuesday morning, Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien said that Daniel Paille (who was not on the ice for the skate) is now out with an undisclosed upper-body injury.
Forward Nick Johnson was recalled on an emergency basis from the Providence Bruins and is joining the team today in Calgary (his hometown) for tonight’s game.
The Bruins’ list of injuries up front also includes Chris Kelly (broken ankle, long-term injured reserve, 4-6 weeks) and Loui Eriksson (concussion, injured reserve).
"It just means that our team has to step up their game as a whole and be more conscientious that we don’t have all our players and we’re going to need the best out of everybody. So it’s a good challenge for us and in the long run, you hope that it will help you grow as a group and as a team."
- Claude Julien
