The Boston Bruins are set to take on the Minnesota Wild tonight at the Xcel Energy Center as they look to win their fourth consecutive game and fifth in six games.
Unfortunately, they’ll have to do so without the help of their leading scorer David Pastrnak, who is set to be scratched tonight due to an undisclosed injury:
With 10 goals to his name and three of which came with the man advantage as well as four assists, Pastrnak was on pace to best his career-high 27 points set in 46 games during the 2014-2015 regular season. Moreover, he posted 15 goals the following season and was more than certainly going to score at least 25 this year.
The 20-year-old has not been placed on the injured reserve as of yet, as the nature of his injury remains unknown.
More updates soon.
