BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Bruins got some good news on the Johnny Boychuk front, as his injury from Tuesday night does not seem to be as serious as it first appeared.
Boychuk is day-to-day with a midly sprained knee, Bruins coach Claude Julien said from Ottawa on Thursday according to Joe Haggerty of Comcast SportsNet New England.

Boychuk had to be helped off the ice midway through the third period in Tuesday night’s 5-3 loss to the Penguins after a leg-on-leg collision with Pittsburgh forward Arron Asham. He walked out of the dressing room on his own after the game and told reporters he felt “good,” but did not participate in the Bruins practice on Wednesday, and did not make the trip up to Ottawa with the team.
With just two games remaining in the regular season, it’s unlikely the Bruins would put Boychuk out there for either of them.
