Injury updates from around the league
Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now: Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk was dealing with an upper-body injury, and was slowed even more last night after a collision in the second period. He finished the third period but wasn’t able to get on the ice for OT.
“He was playing through some discomfort,” Cassidy said of Matt Grzelcyk following the Bruins’ first win on home ice. “He wasn’t gonna be able to cover the ice he needed to. He’s had a couple of tough nights now. … Hopefully, there’s no long-term damage there. Doesn’t sound like it.”
Kristen Shilton: The Toronto Maple Leafs have put forward Nick Robertson on the LTIR.
Pierre LeBrun: Thornton was having an MRI yesterday afternoon.
Chris Johnston: Maple Leafs Auston Matthews will miss tonight’s game with a minor injury. It’s believed to be short-term and they are being cautious.
