Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli offered the following update on forward Daniel Paille on the team’s media Web site this afternoon:
“Daniel Paille has been diagnosed with a broken nose and facial lacerations after the injury he sustained in our game Monday night. He will undergo surgery on Wednesday, November 9 at Mass General Hospital in Boston to repair the injury. Dr. Thomas Dodson will conduct the procedure. Following the surgery, he is expected to be listed as day-to-day.”
Paille was hit in the face with a Steve Staios slap shot in the third period and was helped off the ice. He did not return to the game.
