We had hoped for the best. When Boychuk went to the bench after getting slashed by Brandon Dubinsky we were hoping it was just going to be a bruise. Then he came back and finished the first. He was tough, but surely he was okay. Right? RIGHT?!?!
Then the news came across Twitter. Our hearts sank.
You're damn right Joe. This obviously sucks for the Bruins defense. Boychuk has been great this season defensively and was helping on offense by pinching in the offensive zone and producing rebounds with his vicious shot. We're going to miss the Boychuk over the next month and we wish him a speedy recovery. But as for Dubinsky.... well Patrice Purrgeron is on the case.
