Don Sweeney issues update on Karson Kuhlman: Out at least four weeks

The Boston Bruins will be without another player for an extended period of time. 

Winger Karson Kuhlman sustained a hairline nondisplaced fracture to his right tibia in Boston's 4-3 shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday, Oct. 19 and will be reevaluated in four weeks.

Kuhlman, 24, earned the spot on David Krejci's right wing out of training camp. And although he hasn't recorded a point through eight contests, he's played an integral role in Boston's offense.The Minnesota-Duluth product has played 19 NHL games with Boston, tallying five points (three goals, two assists). 

In this case, it looks like recently-recalled Anders Bjork will remain with Boston for some time -- at least until Krejci and/or Joakim Nordstrom return.

Tim Thomas drops puck ahead of Bruins-Capitals

It's rare we see Tim Thomas make a public appearance nowadays, but he was in attendance for Wednesday night's Boston Bruins-Washington Capitals matchup at Capital One Arena.

Thomas was honored before the game as he was elected into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame and will be inducted on Dec. 12. The former B's goaltender and 2011 Stanley Cup champion topped off the ceremony by dropping the puck ahead of the game.

Watch Zdeno Chara drop the gloves with Tom Wilson during Bruins-Capitals

The fireworks started early in Wednesday night's Bruins-Capitals game as Zdeno Chara and Tom Wilson went at it in the first period.

Wilson cross-checked Chara, which is never a bright idea, and the 6-foot-9 B's captain made him pay.

Wilson definitely held his own, but it's safe to say Chara unsurprisingly was the victor in this one.
