Boychuk injured in loss

According to the Boston Herald, Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk suffered an apparent left knee injury during the third period of Tuesday night's 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at TD Garden.

The 28-year-old collided with Pens forward Arron Asham and was helped off the ice and to the dressing room. He did not appear to be putting any pressure on his left leg.

Boychuk was later seen limping around the locker room following the contest and was walking on his own. It could be a good sign for the B's, who can't afford to have him missing too much time.

In 77 games with the Bruins this season, Boychuk has tallied five goals and 10 assists for 15 points, 53 penalty minutes.

Meanwhile, starting netminder Tim Thomas was not in uniform for the Bruins on Tuesday, as coach Claude Julien took the opportunity to give his veteran goalie a full night off to prepare for the post-season.
