Boston Bruins Matt Grzelcyk Injury

The St. Louis Blues could be without the services of Oskar Sundqvist, as he will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Thursday for his boarding penalty on Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk in the first period of the Blues’ 3-2 overtime win in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final Wednesday night. On Thursday, Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy told the media that Grzelcyk was not traveling to St. Louis for Game 3 and potentially Game 4 as well as he remains in concussion protocol.

“He’s in protocol. When we have a further update, we’ll give it to you,” Cassidy said. “Obviously we’re going to list him day to day. It’s Thursday, we don’t play till Saturday. Typically I’ll give out the lineup either Friday or Saturday. Right now that’s the best I got for you. See how it goes from there.”

Late in the first period, Sundqvist hit Grzelcyk from behind and went shoulder to head, leaving the Bruins rearguard dazed and confused. Grzelcyk would leave the game and not return and Sundqvist went to the box for two minutes.

 

 

 

Game 3 is scheduled for 8 pm EST Saturday night in St. Louis.
