BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins were a little banged up physically after Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at TD Garden.

Fortunately for Boston, none of the injuries were serious, and Bruins coach Claude Julien expects everyone ready for Sunday's game against the Capitals in Washington.

Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg received a total of 20 stitches to repair of pair of cuts between his eyes and on his nose after he was slammed face-first into the glass early in the third period. He was able to return in the waning minutes of the game.

Fellow blueliner Joe Corvo, who scored the team's only goal, collided with partner Andrew Ference late in the third period and did not return.

"I just got stung a little bit," Corvo said. "When collisions like that happen, we're both going fast in opposite directions and we don't mean to hit each other. I just got stung a little bit."

Corvo did say he expects to play Sunday in Washington.

Bruins forward Tyler Seguin had a fat upper lip and said his teeth were sore after he caught a high stick to the face at 8:56 of the second period that resulted in a double-minor penalty on the Penguins' Pascal Dupuis. Boston could not capitalize on the four-minute man-advantage.
