A season dominated by 35 healthy scratches might be enough for some players to quit, or at least ask for a trade somewhere there might be more playing time.
VANCOUVER — Ever since Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final against Tampa Bay, the Bruins have had photos of the post-Stanley Cup celebrations from 1970 and 1972 hanging in their dressing room home and away.
BOSTON — In the immediate aftermath of his February hit on Raymond Sawada and the subsequent four-game suspension he received for it, Daniel Paille was defiant about the hit not being a violation of Rule 48.
BOSTON — Whether Shawn Thornton rejoins them on the Bruins’ fourth line or not, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille have to find a way to make their presence felt even more as the Stanley Cup Final unfolds.
BOSTON — There’s no telling how many times he’s done it in the past, but Bruins winger Daniel Paille called his shot in the morning skate.
BOSTON — Maybe when David Krejci scored his game-winning goal Monday night he was a little more rested than he’d normally be 14 minutes into overtime.
PHILADELPHIA — It didn’t take long for Philadelphia defenseman Chris Pronger to get irritated with the Bruins.
Regardless of who has skated alongside Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton this season, the Bruins have been able to rely on their fourth line to limit its mistakes and pressure the other team on an almost nightly basis.
These days, Daniel Paille has been filling that left-wing slot — and doing it with tons of effectiveness.
Once the playoffs get started next week, Bruins winger Shawn Thornton should be fully healed and cleared to play.
So time is running short for those players that want to be Boston’s 12th forward once Thornton is back in the lineup.
No one is filled with more lineup suspense when he shows up at the rink than Daniel Paille.
If the Bruins forward skates in the last four games of the regular season, it would mark a season-high eight straight games dressed for the fourth-line speedster.
Daniel Paille is the healthy scratch tonight and Tyler Seguin is in the lineup on the road against Montreal.
WILMINGTON, Mass. –It finally happened Saturday night against Pittsburgh.
This is starting to be a regular occurence.
BOSTON — Winger Daniel Paille is scheduled to return to the Bruins’ lineup tonight against Toronto at TD Garden after the end of his four-game suspension.
BOSTON – So let me guess.
Right about now, Don Cherry and every other pundit that decided over the last week that the Bruins’ dressing room is fractured because of Andrew Ference’s comments about Daniel Paille’s hit against Dallas are figuring the team was so mad at Ference they took it out on the faces of the Montreal Canadiens.
