After leaving them alone for a short while, the injury bug has bitten the Bruins again!
Per Bruce Cassidy, Jeremy Lauzon is out tonight, with Connor Clifton taking his place.
It appears that Lauzon is dealing with some kind of upper-body injury.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Bottom six got a shuffle just before game time! Let’s see if it sticks.
