Noel Acciari will be out a while

He suffered a broke finger in the season opener against the Nashville Predators.

The Ocean Stater Noel Acciari exited the Bruins’ season opener on Thursday after blocking a shot and did not return. Postgame, Bruce Cassidy said Acciari wouldn’t be available for Monday’s game vs Colorado. Little did we know, the injury will keep #55 out for longer than that.

For a team without Patrice Bergeron or David Backes, forward depth is at a premium. Here’s hoping Bergy is back soon, Backes’ diverticulitis heals up and this team regains its forward strength.
