Injured Bruins defensemen Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid traveled with the team to Detroit yesterday and will take part in the morning skate.

One, both or neither could play tonight.

Seidenberg (lower-body injury) is doubtful; McQuaid is probably more likely to return after missing eight games with a suspected groin muscle strain.

“I feel good,” said McQuaid after practice yesterday. “I’m right there. So we have to wait and see, I guess. I haven’t talked to them yet, but I hope to at least put myself in the equation for (tonight).”

Said coach Claude Julien: “I think McQuaid is inching a little closer, but that doesn’t mean the other guy won’t be ready. He felt really good (yesterday).”

Seidenberg looked good in practice but put himself in the doubtful category.

“I’ve still got to be careful when I’m out there, but it’s good to see it’s getting better,” he said. “We go day-by-day. I’ll travel with the team, have the morning skate (today), but there’s no date set so far.”

If both veterans are out, rookie defenseman Kevan Miller will play his fourth game. As an emergency call-up, he’ll go back to Providence when someone returns. But he has taken a giant step forward by playing so solidly in his first three NHL games.

“We’ve had a pretty good three games here,” said the 26-year-old. “If I go back down, well, that’s what happens. I’m pretty happy with how this has gone. You get here and it’s like, ‘I know I can play here now,’ and if I do go down, you want to come back. You’d want to get back up here as soon as possible.”

After Detroit, the B’s (8-1-1 in their last 10) host the New York Rangers on Friday afternoon and the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

Free money

The NHL’s big news was the 12-year, $5.2 billion TV rights deal the league signed with Canada’s Rogers Sportsnet. That money will be shared by all 30 teams, and it is estimated it will mean a $3 million boost in next year’s salary cap.

“It’s great for the game,” said Julien. “We took a beating with all these lockouts, but our game is growing. It’s going to benefit everybody.

“When you look at our game as a whole right now, it’s pretty entertaining. You talk to people and people are loving our game now. I think we’re really heading in a good direction. I think we’re all in a good spot, which you can see from the news we got.”
