Daniel Paille, who suffered an upper-body injury when he took a high stick in the face in the third period of the Bruins' 7-4 loss to Buffalo on Thursday, will miss Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs.
“He’s not making the trip. Obviously, we're going to deem it an upper-body injury, only for the reason right now we don't have all the details," head coach Claude Julien said Friday. "We know he got the high stick, but once we get clarification on his injury, we'll let you know."
The Bruins recalled forward Jamie Tardif on Friday from Providence. Tardif, 28, participated in the Bruins' practice at Ristuccia Arena and will make the trip with the team.
With Shawn Thornton (concussion) and Paille out of the lineup, Julien said Tardif -- who leads the P-Bruins with 21 goals and nine assists in 39 games -- will likely make his NHL debut Saturday.
