Daniel Paille Injury Update: Forward Progressing, Day-To-Day After Surgery To Repair Broken Nose

Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille is "feeling much better" Thursday one day after undergoing surgery to repair a broken nose and facial lacerations, according to coach Claude Julien.

Julien said Paille will not play Thursday against the Edmonton Oilers, but is listed as day-to-day and could return to the ice as early as tomorrow.

"I don't know how well he's going to be tomorrow, whether he'll be able to skate with us or not, or whether he'll take a few more days," Julien said. "He said he's feeling much better today."    

In the third period of Monday's victory against New York, Paille took a Steve Staios slap shot to the face, fell to the ice and was tended to by the Bruins training staff. He managed to get off the ice on his own after a few minutes, but held a towel over his bloody face.

Daniel Paille Injury: Bruins Left Wing Leaves Islanders Game After Puck To The Face

If the Boston Bruins are going to hold on to their 5-2 lead and defeat the New York Islanders, they’re going to have to do it without left wing Daniel Paille.

That’s because the French Canadian was sent to the locker room after defenseman Steve Staios tagged him with a slapshot from the right point.

Despite painting the ice of the TD Garden with a few pints of blood, Paille skated to the locker room under his own power.

It seems that Boston has taken the injury personally, as the B’s have roared back and scored two goals following the bloodbath.

Milan Lucic (assisted by Nathan Horton and David Krejci) tipped one in at the 4:34 mark to put Boston up by two before Nathan Horton (assisted by Joe Corvo and Dennis Seidenberg) wristed one in to give the Bruins a 5-2 lead.

Stay tuned for more updates to Paille’s injury as they become available.
