After practice in Pittsburgh, Bruce Cassidy gave some updates about players…practicing back in Boston.
It turns out that barring a setback today, Linus Ullmark will return to game action sometime this weekend. Of course, this weekend is a back-to-back against the Rangers and at the Canadiens.
David Pastrnak and Hampus Lindholm also hit the ice at Warrior. They’ll be ready “soon” with no guarantee that that means this weekend. But they’re closer than they were.
Finally, the B’s announced that the final two home games will be when the annual awards, Shirts off our Backs, and Seventh Player will be awarded. On April 26th, against the Panthers will be the night for the Annual Player Awards and Shirts off our Backs. On April 28th against the Sabres will be the Seventh Player Award. I didn’t vote for it this year because I didn’t want to fill out the whole form to enter the contest, but if I had I would have chosen Erik Haula.
The Bruins play against the Penguins tonight in Pittsburgh at 7pm.
