Dennis Seidenberg (back) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Seidenberg will participate in the Bruins' pregame warmups. He's a major part of the Bruins' defensive core and the fact that he hasn't played yet this season has been a significant hurdle for the Bruins to overcome. Whether or not he ends up participating in this game though, it seems it won't be long before Boston can start enjoying his services once more.

He hasn't played so far this season.

Dennis Seidenberg's next doctor visit is scheduled for Oct. 9, as he recovers from back surgery.

He hasn't been able to do much more than walk since the procedure because he is waiting for the incision to heal. "It is pretty annoying," said Seidenberg. "I mean, what a timing. You work out all summer, especially if it's a long summer like this, then you get ready to get started and then suddenly you are out for eight weeks."
