The Boston Bruins will be without Daniel Paille for at least two more games.
Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters Tuesday afternoon in Montreal that the club’s fourth-line winger has been diagnosed with a “minor concussion” and will be out of the lineup Wednesday in Montreal and Thursday at home against the Phoenix Coyotes. Paille’s status for Saturday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes still is unknown.
Paille was injured Sunday afternoon against the Florida Panthers when he took a big hit from defenseman Ed Jovanovski during his first shift of an eventual Bruins win. Paille went straight to the locker room and was ruled out for the rest of the game after the first period.
Paille already had suffered a concussion earlier this season. He missed seven games after being injured in December.
