In the season series finale against the hated Habs, Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy went down hard on his knee 35 seconds in, leaving the game. Bruins fans were notified that he had a lower body injury and that he wouldn’t return to the game.
Update: Charlie McAvoy has a lower-body injury and is not likely to return.

But what happened to him? What is the injury?
There is no information. None. No one os talking about it. Is it anything big or will he be back? I have no clue.
In the meantime, we can discuss how maybe Claude Julien was the problem all along with regards to the Bruins getting penalties called against rather than for.
“I think it’s pretty obvious. When your best shooter is on a breakaway and doesn’t get a shot away, I think everybody agrees that it should have been a penalty shot,” Julien began. “What’s embarrassing is Nash embellishing it. The stick hits his shoulder, it doesn’t even hit his face and he embellishes and looks at the referee. Those are embarrassing things in the game of hockey.
“We’re a tired team and we have to kill penalties and it eventually caught up to us. That’s disappointing that when we had some of those things happen, or another penalty that’s called five seconds later because we end up on a two-on-one. As I said, we evaluate ourselves and we expect others to evaluate themselves as well.”
Aw, that’s just TFB, Claude. I just can’t feel bad for you because you coach the Canadiens. That sucks for you, dude.
Anyway, if we get any info on Charlie, we’ll share it here.
