The Bruins face key injuries as playoffs approach

The Bruins are facing the injury bug in the final month of the regular season. With playoffs on the horizon, the team is facing some significant losses to their lineup. Unfortunately, these injuries have come at a crucial time. While they are in the playoff picture, they might not land home ice for round one of the NHL playoffs.

Bruins current injuries

The Bruins have been racking up losses since the start of April. Today it was reported that star forward David Pastrnak and big trade deadline acquisition Hampus Lindholm were skating prior to the Bruins practice on Friday. However, they did not participate in practice itself with the rest of the team. Leading us to believe they are close to returning; more than likely that return will not be this weekend. Meanwhile, Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo did rejoin the team at practice today. However, goaltender Linus Ullmark did not. The Bruins also called up rookie goaltender Troy Grosenick from Providence.

Bruins roster and playoff positioning

The Bruins were on a tear prior to this injury bug taking out various lineup players. At one point the Bruins were without three out of their top four defensemen. With Toronto still rolling along and Tampa starting to find its groove again, the Bruins may be without home ice for the first round of the playoffs. Currently they are slated in a wildcard spot which would put them up against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Hurricanes have dominated the Bruins this season and may pose for a tough matchup in the first round. Hopefully, the Bruins can get healthy and start to rest some other roster players as the regular season comes to a close.
