According to Coach Claude Julien both Dennis Seidenberg and Torey Krug are game time decisions, Thursday night against the Avalanche.
After missing all of training camp and all 14 games this season due to back surgery, Dennis Seidenberg was a full participant in Thursday’s morning skate, along with Torey Krug, who along with Seidenberg, will be a game time decision for Thursday night’s matchup against the Colorado Avalanche.
Seidenberg took shifts along side Adam McQuaid in Thursday’s morning skate as the Second D-pair, Chara and Colin Miller being the first, Torey Krug and Kevan Miller being third and Zach Trotman and Joe Morrow has the fourth pair of defensemen.
Defensemen line rushes from Morning Skate:
“There’s a good possibility he’ll play tonight” Claude Julien told reporters after Thursday’s morning skate. ““He’ll be out there for warmup, “We’ve got some game-time decisions to make here, guys. Obviously, not up front , we’re good up front, but in the back end, we’ll make game-time decisions.”
Though it looks like Seidenberg may be a go, it is still up-in-the-air for defensemen Torey Krug, who sat out both Tuesday and Wednesday’s practices with what the team a called “maintenance day”. Krug has played in every single game for the Bruins this season, who has averaged 22:44 TOI this season, along with 10 assists in 14 games.
Both Krug and Seidenberg are game time decisions in tonight’s tilt against the Avalanche per Coach Claude Julien.
Other notable things to keep an eye out for in Thursday night’s game, the separation of Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron skated alongside Connolly and Beleskey this past week in practice and most notably in Thursday’s morning skate. Look to see Brad Marchand skating with Ryan Spooner and Jimmy Hayes against the Avs.
Also keep an eye out for Frank Vatrano in Thursday nights game at the Garden. Playing in his third career NHL game, Vatrano looks to continue the great play (1 goal, 8 shots) in his first two. Vatrano is being put in a great place to succeed, playing alongside David Krejci and Loui Eriksson, look for the Long Meadow Mass. Native to make the most out of this opportunity every Mass. Kid dreams of.
