Bruins OK with Simon Gagne’s decision to leave team

For a brief time, it appeared as though the Simon Gagne experiment was going to work.Playing on the fourth line with Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille, Gagne struggled to get his game up to par after taking a year off from the NHL. But toward the end of his stay with the Bruins, there was some cohesion to the unit, so much so that coach Claude Julien felt comfortable throwing the line out against the opposition’s top lines during the West Coast trip in December.

B's coach, players back Gagne's decision

BOSTON -- Bruins forward Simon Gagne's decision to sit out the remainder of the season for personal reasons had the support of his teammates on Tuesday. Gagne took an indefinite leave of absence on Dec. 10 to be with his ailing father, who recently passed away from liver cancer. Gagne is now considered a suspended player in order for the Bruins to maintain a full roster. After the team’s morning skate Tuesday as it prepares to host the Tampa Bay Lightning at TD Garden, Bruins coach Claude Julien discussed the situation.
