Daniel Paille Just Waiting to be Cleared by Coaches

Bruins forward Daniel Paille, who skated this morning at TD Garden, said he has been cleared to play but is waiting on a decision from the coaches.

“I feel really good, actually,” he said. “You know, I feel really good out there when I’m skating. I feel like I have no issues. I haven’t played in awhile, I have a lot of adrenaline so hopefully I get to play with it and use it tonight.”

Bruins coach Claude Julien said he was a game-time decision.

“I’m gonna wait and see and hopefully I get a good positive out of it and find out that I get to play,” Paille said. “Again, we’ve played very well so far. If I do come in, if it’s tonight, I’m just gonna try not to change that and keep the momentum going for our team.”

Despite missing almost a month of hockey because of a head injury, Paille said he doesn’t expect there to be any rust if he’s back on the ice.

“I think I’m confident that I’ll blend in with the way I need to play.”
