David Pastrnak will not travel with the Bruins for their upcoming road trip, an indication that he will miss Boston's next three games as he continues to rest a bruised foot. "He'€™s staying behind," Claude Julien said after Wednesday's practice. "He'€™s going to be staying behind for the weekend." Pastrnak suffered his injury early in the third period of last Tuesday's game against the Coyotes. He played in Boston's next two games, but ineffectiveness led Julien to give him just three shifts over the final two periods of Saturday's win over the Lightning. The Bruins then determined that Pastrnak was better off resting the foot and recalled Alexander Khokhlachev from Providence to play in his place. Dennis Seidenberg will travel with the Bruins for the trip, but will not play. Seidenberg, who is nearly six weeks into his recovery from back surgery, is practicing with the team but not close to playing. The three-game road trip won't be easy for the Bruins, who are coming off a disappointing 5-3 loss to the Stars at home. The B's will face the Capitals (8-3-0), Canadiens (11-2-1) and Islanders (7-3-3) on the trip.
