Alexander Fallstrom has been placed on unconditional waivers by the Boston Bruins.

Putting a player on unconditional waivers can be a step towards terminating the person's contract. Fallstrom has a goal in four AHL games this season.

Dennis Seidenberg is still working his way back from a torn ACL/MCL that he suffered last Dec. 27.

"I hear it, but I don't want to listen it," Seidenberg said when told that injuries like this can require a year before players feel fully comfortable again. "You don't want to say, 'I'm playing, but I'm not there yet and I have to wait a year.' You want to be at your best as soon as possible. I'm working at it. It's coming, That's the good thing." Even when it comes to natural defensive plays, the timing isn't fully down yet. However, it should come back before too long.

Matt Bartkowski will return to the lineup on Tuesday night.

Kevan Miller is sidelined indefinitely because of a dislocated right shoulder, so Bartkowski will draw back in. He has played in just one of Boston's first seven games of the season.

Kevan Miller is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury.

He dislocated his right shoulder in Saturday's game in a fight with Buffalo's Nicolas Deslauriers. Just an FYI as Miller doesn't have any fantasy value.

Oct 20 - 9:59 AM

Seth Griffith has been returned to the minors.

Kevan Miller sustained what is believed to be a shoulder injury in Saturday's win over Buffalo.

There hasn't been an update on his status yet. Miller has seven hits, 10 blocks and a plus-4 rating in six games this season.
Oct 20 - 9:50 AM

Kevan Miller left Saturday's game against the Buffalo Sabres with an upper-body injury.

Miller left the game in the first period after a fight with Sabres' forward Nicolas Deslauriers. The 26-year-old appeared to injure himself as he and Deslauriers fell to the ice after the fight. "It happened during the fight. I think when he fell, he hurt himself. He came off the ice with pain. I don’t know exactly what the injury is, so I’m going to refrain from saying anything," said Bruins' coach Claude Julien. "We’ll see how it boils down in the next day or two." Miller should be considered day-to-day right now.

Milan Lucic apologized for the lewd gesture he made to Canadiens fans at the Bell Centre on Thursday.

"I don’t want to get into the details of everything, but obviously I’m not proud of what I did there, and I just want to apologize . . . for embarrassing the Bruins organization, and I also want to apologize to our fans and apologize to the Montreal Canadiens organization and the Canadiens fans," said Lucic. "I know they can get under your skin sometimes, but they are great fans. . . . I regret what I did." Lucic was fined $5,000 for the gestures.

With his assist in Boston's 4-0 win over Buffalo on Saturday night, Patrice Bergeron tied Adam Oates for 13th all-time on the Bruins' scoring list.

The point was the 499th of Bergeron's career. After suffering a serious neck injury a few years ago, Bergeron's career was in doubt. The 29-year-old is now one of the best two-way center's in the game, and he will continue to climb up Boston's scoring list. Bergeron has one goal and four points in seven games this season.

The Bruins have been getting exceptional play from their third line so far this season.

Carl Soderberg, Chris Kelly and Loui Eriksson have been very good this season. Both Soderberg and Kelly lead the Bruins in points with five each. As David Krejci and Milan Lucic continue to struggle on the top line, the third line has really been a pleasant surprise.
Oct 19 - 9:15 AM

The Bruins’ defensemen led the way in their 4-0 shutout of the Sabres on Saturday night.

Dougie Hamilton, Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug all scored in the victory. Hamilton also added an assist and finished a game-high plus-three. Though these were his first points of the season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him improve upon his 25-point 2013-14 campaign. Carl Soderberg scored the final goal in the win as Chara led the way with seven shots on goal. Getting this kind of production from the backline will do wonders to open up a team’s offense.
Oct 18 - 9:58 PM

Niklas Svedberg sticked aside all 32 shots he faced for his first career NHL shutout as the Bruins blanked the Sabres on Saturday night 4-0.

Let’s put it this way: If Tuukka Rask ever went down with an injury, Svedberg would be a startable goalie in fantasy leagues. Boston’s structure and system is a goalie’s best friend as former backup Chad Johnson showed last season. Svedberg has a 0.91 goals-against average and .969 save percentage in two-plus games this season.
Oct 18 - 9:57 PM

There's no telling how long his audition might be, but it appears as if Simon Gagne will start Saturday's Boston Bruins - Buffalo Sabres game on the David Krejci - Milan Lucic line.

Gagne managed to score a goal despite only skating a few shifts with the duo on Thursday, so with that and his considerable resume in mind, it makes sense for Boston to give him a shot. He's worth watch-listing at worst as Krejci and Lucic could lift him to solid levels. At 34, it's plausible that he could contribute ... but he's obviously lost quite a few steps at the same time.
