Boston Bruins W Charlie Coyle Could Miss Rematch With Caps Monday

Boston Bruins center Charlie Coyle missed practice Sunday and appears to be a gametime decision for the rematch Monday night with the Washington Capitals in Washington DC. 

“A bit of an upper-body issue there,” head coach Bruce Cassidy said of Coyle who went pointless with four shots in 17:33 TOI in the Bruins’ 4-3 overtime loss Saturday

“He came out of the game all right, but something that lingered this morning, so we gave him the day off. Hopefully that will help for tomorrow but we’ll see in the morning.”

Coyle has two goals and two assists in eight games this season. Thanks to a recent rash of injuries for the Bruins, Coyle has centered a variety of Boston Bruins wingers on the third line and also played right wing on the second and first lines. 

Cassidy also gave an update on the four injured Boston Bruins who did not make the four-game road trip that will take the Boston Bruins to Philadelphia after the game against the Caps Monday night. The Bruins will play a two-game set against the Philadelphia Flyers Wednesday and Friday. As of now, it does not appear that forwards Jake DeBrusk, Jack Studnicka, Ondrej Kase and defenseman Matt Grzelcyk will join the Bruins for the games in Philadelphia but there was some good news on DeBrusk. 

“Nobody is traveling of those four,” Cassidy said. “Not a lot to report. I think DeBrusk. …my understanding is he’ll get on the ice tomorrow so that’s a positive. The other guys I’m not sure yet if they’re ready to get on the ice but DeBrusk I believe will start skating, so once you’re on the ice, you’re a step closer but no, nobody’s here and I don’t believe anyone will meet us here right now. 

That’s my understanding but there could be some improvement over the next few days that changes that.”
