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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
