Bruins get Seidenberg back

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg returned to the lineup for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the New York Rangers Saturday at TD Garden.

The Bruins took a 3-1 series lead into the potential closeout game.

Seidenberg was injured on his first shift of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Toronto Maple Leafs on May 13. He was unable to continue after he tried to take a second shift.

Seidenberg, who started skating with the team about a week ago, ranked second on the Bruins in average minutes per game and led the team in blocked shots during the regular season. In his first seven playoff games, he recorded one assist and an even plus/minus rating.

Rookie Dougie Hamilton, who has three assists in seven postseason games, was scratched to make room for Seidenberg.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
