OTTAWA -- Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Ottawa Senators captain Jason Spezza will not play due to injuries when the teams face off Saturday night.

Ottawa defenseman Chris Phillips is also injured and will not play the second game of the home-and-home series between the Senators and Bruins at Canadian Tire Centre.

The Bruins announced Chara's injury on their Twitter feed, and said that his status is day-to-day.

Spezza has a lower-body injury, according to the Senators Twitter feed, and Phillips is out with a left-foot injury.

Earlier on Saturday, Boston announced that defenseman Dennis Seidenberg is out for the rest of the season after sustaining torn ligaments in his right knee Friday against Ottawa.

Quote of the Day

I think everybody wanted the puck tonight. Everybody wanted to be part of the solution and it reflected on the way we played. It's tiring when you have to chase the puck but tonight was one of those nights where everyone really wanted to make a play and wanted to have an impact on the game.
