Dennis Seidenberg, and probably the rest of the Boston Bruins as well, is still in a bit of shock after their season was ended on Wednesday night in the first round of the postseason by Washington.
"It's such a weird feeling," he said. "You play a hard, tight game. Suddenly a bounce goes against you and the season's over. For the first few minutes, even right now, you're wondering what time practice is tomorrow. But there is no practice." Every game in the seven-game series was decided by one goal and that one mistake often times was the difference in the outcome. In overtime, that bounce went to the Capitals and they seized the moment to advance into the second and knock out the defending champions. Seidenberg posted three points, 29 hits, 16 blocks and 17 shots in the playoffs.
