The Boston Bruins take on the New York Rangers Tuesday night at the Madison Square Garden. Here’s some pregame reading on the injuries of Patrice Bergeron, Matt Grzelcyk, and Urho Vaakanainen — each of which missed Boston’s 2-0 win over the Ottawa Senators Sunday.
Bergeron, who’s missed the past two affairs due to a head injury, is making progress with his injury. Bruce Cassidy said that Bergeron will “probably meet us on the road hopefully if he progresses well.”
The Bruins, who take on the Rangers tonight, will not travel too far when they take on the Islanders Thursday night in Long Island. With Cassidy saying he could join the team later in the week, Bergeron could play Thursday against New York.
Grzelcyk will “probably” be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers, said Cassidy. Grzelcyk left Friday night’s 6-0 loss to the Hurricanes after landing awkwardly in the second period.
Vaakanainen, out for the last three games with an upper-body injury, practiced and is “back in the mix” for the Bruins but won’t suit up Tuesday vs. New York. He’ll likely return against the Islanders.
