    Charlie McAvoy exits Bruins-Habs game with lower-body injury

    Tim Rosenthal March 3, 2018

    As if things weren’t hard enough with Patrice Bergeron out of the lineup, the Bruins may have another significant injury to deal with.

    Just 37 seconds into Saturday’s matchup with the Canadiens at TD Garden, Charlie McAvoy was slashed by Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher in the defending end and hobbled his way down the tunnel. The Bruins announced that McAvoy was unlikely to return because of a lower-body injury.

    Here’s a further look at the hit that caused McAvoy to leave the game.

    On second thought, Gallagher might have tripped McAvoy. In any event, Gallagher didn’t make much contact with McAvoy, if any, from this angle.

    McAvoy carried a three-game point streak into Saturday’s game while leading all rookie defensemen with 32 points (7 goals, 25 assists) in 58 games played. The rookie defenseman missed four games following a heart procedure in late January.

    Stay tuned for more developments.
