Despite numerous projections by fans and pundits that the Boston Bruins would take a considerable backwards step in the standings this season, all they've done is go out and absolutely dominate their competition. Currently, they hold the National Hockey League's best record, and show no signs of slowing down despite having not been fully healthy.
As stated, they've accomplished this feat despite not having iced a full roster at all during this season so far. And it looks as though they're dealing with yet another injury woe. Center Trent Frederic, who left Monday night's victory over the Tampa Bay Lighting after sustaining an upper body ailment, didn't practice the following day.
According to head coach Jim Montgomery, he's currently listed as "day to day".
“He’s day-to-day. With the great depth we have, I’m leaning toward playing [Craig Smith] anyway. We’ll see how [Frederic] is feeling tomorrow,” said Montgomery. “Smith is ready. He’s a pro and his attitude has been great. He’s extremely well-liked by his teammates and he’s a big part of the culture here.”
Frederic has scored one goal and three points in 10 games this season.
