In an update secretly posted to their media Web site on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, the Bruins announced defenseman Mark Stuart required surgery on his finger and is expected to miss two weeks. That means we might have seen the last of Stuart this season.
Andrew Bodnarchuk took Stuart’s spot Saturday night in Toronto and will seemingly continue to do so, at least until Adam McQuaid is healthy enough to get back into action.
And in other defenseman injury news, Dennis Seidenberg told the Globe’s Kevin Paul Dupont he was doubly lucky despite the gash he suffered on his wrist Saturday. Seidenberg also said he’s unsure if he’ll be able to play Monday night in Washington.
