The banged-up Bruins continue to receive bad news on the medical front. Coach Claude Julien said Tuesday that defenseman Dougie Hamilton will be out 2-4 weeks with a lower-body injury and that fourth-line winger Daniel Paille will miss Tuesday's game against the Flames at Calgary.

Hamilton, who left Sunday night's game in Toronto during the first period, went back to Boston to be evaluated by the team’s medical staff.

In addition to Hamilton and Paille, the Bruins will be without Loui Eriksson (concussion), Chris Kelly (broken leg) and Adam McQuaid (lower body) Tuesday. They’ll also be missing Shawn Thornton, who is out indefinitely as he awaits Friday's disciplinary hearing with the league.

On the bright side, defenseman Johnny Boychuk is expected to return Tuesday after missing two games with a back injury.
