The Boston Bruins got some great news Monday when Hampus Lindholm was present and participating in a regular sweater at an optional practice Monday at Warrior Ice Arena. Lindholm has missed the last two games of the series with Carolina due to an upper-body injury sustained in Game 2 at Carolina.
Lindholm suffered the injury due to a hit by Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov and did not return to the game. In Lindholm’s absence, the Bruins were able to even the series at two games apiece after winning Games 3 and 4 in Boston. The possible return of Lindholm in Game 5 would be a welcome sight for Boston, who lost defenseman Charlie McAvoy to the COVID protocol list prior to a game 4. McAvoy will have to isolate for five days from the beginning of symptoms and will not play in Game 5.
The Bruins and Hurricanes play a pivotal Game 5 Tuesday night in Raleigh. There has been no word yet on Lindholm’s availability for the game.
