    Blue line shuffle: Seids and McQuaid out, Kevan Miller to make pro debut

    With Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQauid nursing injuries, the Bruins have dipped into their blue-line reserves in Providence for the first time this season.

    Kevan Miller (and not Kevin Millar the former Red Sox first baseman, who's name I want to say since I've seen Miller's) will get his first taste of NHL action tonight versus the St. Louis Blues.

    Miller played his college hockey at the University of Vermont, where he was Captain in the '10-'11 season and recorded 30 points (5G, 25A) in 144 games played.

    He had a few things to say BostonBruins.com's Caryn Switaj this morning after the pregame skate:

    Miller's call up is a result of Seidenberg's injury, as coach Claude Julien revealed he will be out a week, give or take a few days.

    As for McQuaid, he skated for the first time today with teammates since his injury, as they just got back from their three-game road trip. He wont play tonight, giving him another day off with an eye towards Saturday when the B's host the Hurricanes at 1 p.m.

    The Bruins pride themselves on having depth not just at the NHL club, but on the AHL squad in Providence. The last three defensive callups on the blueline have all turned out pretty well for the Bruins you could say (McQuaid, Torey Krug, Matt Bartkowski).
