The Boston Bruins got their first dose of bad news on the injury front on Thursday.
Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy was not happy with his team’s performance in a 6-3 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday.
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin is already talking trash ahead of the Bruins tilt with their Atlantic Division rivals in Buffalo on Friday.

According to Buffalo Sabres star defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, new Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark ‘talks a lot of s!?t’ and he’s looking forward to lighting up his former teammate Friday.
Rasmus Dahlin said he hated wearing the face shield after getting puck to the face Tuesday. He smiled (as best he could) and said he’s looking forward to scoring on his good friend Linus Ullmark, who “talks a lot of bleep” #Sabres #NHLBruins pic.twitter.com/HR07uGfbj1
