Brad Marchand and Brandon Carlo of the Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins Make A Big Move With Surprising Player

Published January 13, 2024 at 2:34 PM

Amidst concerns about injuries, Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark and rookie center Matthew Poitras seem to have better news than expected, but the situation takes a different turn for defenseman Brandon Carlo.

The setting is T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, where the Bruins gear up for a face-off with the Vegas Golden Knights. Head coach Jim Montgomery, providing an update during the team's game-day skate, initially appears reassuring, labeling all three players as "day-to-day" and assuring their presence throughout the upcoming trip.

However, the optimism takes a hit when Montgomery, later in the day, reveals that Carlo, initially deemed 'day-to-day,' has been placed on injured reserve. This update follows the Bruins' decision to recall goalie Brandon Bussi.

Carlo, fighting a upper-body injury since one of the Bruins' recent clash with the Colorado Avalanche, now faces an extended absence from the lineup. The unexpected twist in Carlo's status adds a layer of uncertainty as the Bruins navigate through their upcoming games.
