Bruins announce critical health updates

Only three games remaining in the season!



With the Boston Bruins having already secured the President's Trophy, they can certainly afford to not have a few important faces in the lineup as the regular season winds down to a close. 

Defenseman Charlie McAvoy departed last night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs after sustaining a hit along the boards; he was held out of the rest of the contest due to precautionary reasons. The good news for him is that his ailment isn't believed to be serious.

Meanwhile, veteran forward David Krejci isn't expected to be able to suit up by the next time that his team hits the ice, according to head coach Jim Montgomery.

Krejci is very doubtful, I would say,” Montgomery said. “McAvoy is to be determined, it’s just how he responds to treatment today to be honest. [Taylor] Hall is getting closer. He hasn’t checked all the boxes, but he’s close. He is a possibility for this weekend.”

They host the postseason-bound New Jersey Devils tomorrow night at home at TD Garden.
