Bruins coach Jim Montgomery gives an update on Charlie McAvoy’s workload
The Bruins couldn’t have asked for a better result in Charlie McAvoy’s homecoming game.
Boston defeated the Calgary Flames 3-1 on Thursday. He defends him scored the go-ahead goal in the second period while logging 19:18 minutes of ice time.
McVoy joined Brad Marchand on the Bruins’ roster over the past two weeks to make an immediate impact on his first return from injury. The 24-year-old blueliner he underwent a shoulder procedure on June 3 meant a projected recovery time of roughly six months, but McAvoy showed why he’s a Norris Trophy candidate when he was on the ice.
Since Marchand’s return, the Bruins have faced a back-to-back on their schedule as Boston continues its historic start to the season. The Bruins have claimed Marchand is not expected to play in back-to-back games. The Black and Gold face back-to-back games in their weekend set, and head coach Jim Montgomery spoke to the media before the B faced the Buffalo Sabres and provided an update on McAvoy’s condition over the weekend.
“He played well and he feels great,” Montgomery told reporters, via team video. “So that’s why he’s on the road, and hopefully he’ll play tonight and tomorrow night.”
Montgomery’s statement is obviously welcome to Bruins fans, and it should be continue to strengthen Boston’s blue linewho has seen Hampus Lindholm and Connor Clifton thrive during the initial stretch of the season
