WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg skated at Ristuccia Arena for the second consecutive day on Sunday as he makes his way back from a lacerated tendon in his left forearm sustain against Toronto on April 3. Seidenberg had surgery to repair the tendon and was in a hard cast for the first four weeks of recovery. The hard cast was removed last Monday and Seidenberg wears a splint of the forearm to protect the area that has about a three inch scar five inches up from his wrist.

WALTHAM — Between Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett alone, it has never been easy to pinpoint the best player on the Celtics. It’s easy, though, for Kendrick Perkins. Not only does he consider Rajon Rondo to be the C’s top player, he also considers him their lifeline. “I think right now, he’s the best player on our team,” Perkins told WEEI.com following practice on Saturday. “Without Rondo, nothing goes. Pretty much we’ve got to play him the whole game because he just runs the whole team. Without him, we’d be dead.” Visit the Green Street Blog for more.
