07:26 AM ET 12.29 | The Bruins still have 43 games left in the regular season, plenty of time to figure out how to fill the very large void in their defense corps. But make no mistake about it: The B's Stanley Cup hopes took a major hit yesterday when they learned that workhorse defenseman Dennis Seidenberg is lost for the rest of the season with a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. The injury happened with Friday's 5-0 win over the Ottawa Senators in the bag, with less than five minutes left on the clock. Seidenberg, who signed a four-year contract extension worth $16 million at the start of the season, became entangled with Ottawa's Cory Conacher and crashed awkwardly to the ice behind the Bruins net. After immediately clutching the knee, Seidenberg got up and skated off the ice under his own power, but in obvious pain. General manager Peter Chiarelli announced the gravity of Seidenberg's injury yesterday. Seidenberg's' estimated recovery time is 6-8 months.

The loss of Seidenburg is a big blow to the B's, to put it in perspective, it'd be like if your favorite team added Dion (unless of course your favorite team is the Leafs).

Good thing Chiarelli has stock piled a lot of young talent in the system. At least a third of the team last night was Providence boys.

And speaking of defensemen that was quite the effort there by former Norris winner Karlsson on Paille's goal.

Wait a minute. Weren't the B****n fans crowing over all the injuries to Penguin players? If its karma when a Penguin gets injured, what is it when a Bruin gets injured?

Seems to me that both B****n and Pittsburgh have their share of injuries and its going to be up the talent in Providence and Wilkes-Barre to help their teams along.

This probably won't go through, but maybe Canuck can post this video for me. Its from the Daily Show on the Comedy Channel. Its a compilation of just a few of the dirty hits that the Bruins have laid on other team over the past couple years and how they called the injuries embellishments.

If the were a poster named
Pittsburghgm 28-11....he would have a comment like this...


HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAA @ the bruins fans and Seidenberg HAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

so I am not accused of plagiarism...this is a copy and paste from Bostongm's account (with Malkin's name exchanged with Seidenberg's name)

Karma's a little b_iotch.


In all seriousness, I never like to see players out for the year. I hope he has a full recovery and 100% at the start of the 2014 season.

He probably won't read that, he doesn't show up when they lose, like they lost, last night:)

Thank you!

Seidenberg's injury also dealt a big blow to Germany's hockey team in Sochi. Bad timing. Not that anyone here cares, this is just filler between the Pens-Bruins posts. As you were.

You did everything right as far as I can tell. Let's see ....

Boston Herald ... go cry me a river. You don't hear all the other teams whining and crying about all the injuries they have to play through. This is the NHL. Everybody's got them ..... including my Wings.

December 29, 2013  02:10 PM ET

Lucky the B-ruineds have all the young defencemen that they do - anymore, and they've got a real crisis, though. They're certainly not going to be trading away any d.

Yup, they should have stock piled some of those goals from the previous night. And despite the fact that they sat their Norris trophy winner on the penalty kill (against Anderson- could have picked anyone on the ice, even Kassian and they choose Karlsson).

There's a Part 2 also, good to see that Canucks fans have another skill set aside from burning things.

Thanks Roamer.

There was a hit about the 2:00 minute mark that looked like a replay of the Cooke hit on Savard.

I also liked the dives they showed. Thornton's dive would embarrass a French Soccer player.

Oh and Rex. Can we count the McSorley slash to the helmet or is Dupuis' slash a million times worse? Yeah, I thought so too.

Marty McSorley??? You got anything from the 21st century or do I have to remind you of Darius Kasparitis and the rest of the hatchet men that played for Pittsburgh over the years? Yeah, I didn't think so.BTW, I've always resisted lumping you in with edithbunkerdealwithit and a few others as a know nothing Pens fans, but sometimes you make it difficult. We both know that the average Bruins fan knows a lot about hockey and the average penguin fan knows a lot about bankruptcy laws and rigged draft lotteries.

Of course B****n fans forget the past when it suits there purpose.

Oh and the only thing that B****n fans know about is the Bruins. They have no idea how real hockey is played or what is against the rules. According to you guys if a B****n player does it is legal. If someone injures a B****n player it is a dirty hit. I wouldn't mind if you will all rah rah Bruins if you'd just admit occasionally that the Bruins got outplayed or that a hit was legal.

Bankruptcy and draft lotteries. Now who is bringing up ancient history?

By the way Rex, what did you think of the video. Kind of showed what the Bruins are all about.

cmon BF.... not every Bruins fan is like that and you know it...I haven't seen a team yet this year that hasn't done.... 1) something completely stupid resulting in injury to another player....or... 2) something dirty resulting in same said injury. I saw one of my own Wings run Getzlaf from behind and didn't even get suspended...and he should have gotten at least a couple games. We've all seen a lot of stuff that got called and shouldn't have...and a lot of stuff that should have been called and didn't even get a blink from a ref. The players need to start respecting not only each other but the game. The suspensions need to be longer...and the fines bigger...get their damn attention and it will stop. Drop the instigator rule....and get some mandatory penalties in place for the really reckless incidents

Nice to see you painting with the same broad brush, you accuse other fan bases of. I understand the temptation to stoop, especially when others lay out the bait, but something about dogs and fleas.
