The Boston Bruins won Game 2 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden, but the 4-1 victory came at a price.
The B's had multiple players get banged up and/or leave the game early due to the physicality of the action.
Bruins defenseman Torey Krug left in the second period and did not return after taking a hard hit along the boards. B's forward Jake DeBrusk also was shaken up after Leafs forward Nazem Kadri cross-checked him in the head during the third period. Kadri is facing a lengthy suspension and was offered an in-person disciplinary hearing from the NHL.
B's coach Bruce Cassidy provided an encouraging update Sunday on the statuses of Krug and DeBrusk, noting both players will travel with the team to Toronto for Monday night's Game 3 at Scotiabank Arena.
Injury updates, per Bruce Cassidy:— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) April 14, 2019
Marcus Johansson is still sick, so he won’t travel with team. Could meet group tomorrow in Toronto.
Torey Krug and Jake DeBrusk both “doing better” and are day to day. Connor Clifton (upper body) is also day to day. All three will travel. pic.twitter.com/oz2QRRTl0x
Defenseman Jakub Zboril also was recalled from the AHL's Providence Bruins.
The Bruins did not practice Sunday, so we'll have to wait until Monday's morning skate to see how Cassidy plans to mix up his forward lines and defense pairings amid all the injuries.
