If Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg knows whether he will be back in the lineup for Game 5 against the Rangers Saturday, he didn’t give it away to the media following Friday’s optional team skate.
However, he was one of the first Bruins to take the ice for a brief but intense workout at TD Garden.
Seidenberg, who hasn’t played since suffering a lower-body injury on his first shift in Game 7 against the Maple Leafs May 13, initially looked a bit stiff but appeared to loosen up.
Following the workout, the 31-year-old said he is continuing to improve.
“Ice time right now helps me,” Seidenberg said. “It helps you get your timing back a little bit and maybe a feel for the puck.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
