For the second straight game, the Boston Bruins will be without the services of rising star forward David Pastrnak.

The team labels Pastrnak’s injury as upper-body-related. Claude Julien describes Pastrnak as day-to-day and notes that he’s expected to skate by himself on Saturday.

That certainly stings for a Bruins offense that occasionally seems a little top-heavy, especially since they’re facing the high-powered Winnipeg Jets tonight.
