The biggest reasons the Boston Bruins were knocked out of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs by the Ottawa Senators was the lack of offense and the ridiculous amount of injuries suffered on the blue line. 

One of the few regular defensemen to actually play in all six postseason games was Kevan Miller despite being hampered by a shoulder injury. 

According to a report from Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe, the injury is not serious enough for him to require surgery this offseason, which is good news for the Bruins!

Miller had three goals and 13 points in 58 regular season games for the Bruins.  He finished the season with a +1 goal differential, 50 penalty minutes, 121 hits and 53.6 Corsi For percentage.
