Boston Bruins prize rookie Tyler Seguin sits out game because of flu

BOSTON - Boston Bruins rookie Tyler Seguin is out of Saturday night's game with the Philadelphia Flyers due to the flu.

Seguin, the second pick overall in this year's draft, had played in all of the team's previous 27 games, scoring five goals and assisting on five others.

The Bruins gained the pick for the 18-year old forward from Toronto after trading winger Phil Kessel before last season.

Left wing Danile Paille took Seguin's place in the lineup and played for the first time since Nov. 28.
