Things haven’t been great to start out the last meeting of the B’s and Habs. Boston played like they’d been on a back-to-back, turnovers abound...
...and Charlie McAvoy left the game early, and is unlikely to return, according to the team.
This is the play he got hurt on:
If he’s out for any stretch of time...yikes.
Get well soon, Charlie. And I mean like...REAL soon.
EDIT (12:26 PM Sunday): For those who think Gallagher slashed McAvoy’s foot, it looks like he missed.
Looked at it 10 times. Doesn’t look like Gallagher ‘slash’ even makes contact with McAvoy foot, only the ice, and actually really only trips him it appears. pic.twitter.com/xHdQRl5V2u— Aaron Ward (@NHL_AaronWard) March 3, 2018
Looks like a non-contact injury, which is not ideal. Knee sprain? High ankle sprain?
