The Boston Bruins face elimination tonight when they drop the puck with the Tampa Bay Lightning for Game 5 of their seven game series.
Unfortunately they'll be going to war without one of their regulars.
Head coach Bruce Cassidy announced that Chris Wagner has officially been ruled out for Game 5 tonight.
Wagner has actually been one of the team's most reliable players during the playoffs but he's struggled a bit against Tampa.
After looking great in the round robin and against Carolina in the first round, Wagner like the rest of the Bruins has lost his game against the Lightning.
Cassidy believes the whole team just needs to execute and will fight to stay alive tonight.
“I believe they will put their best foot forward and we’re going to have to. We’re playing against a good hockey club that’s not going to give an inch,” said Bruce Cassidy. “It’s on us to make sure we execute better with the puck and finish a few more plays. I don’t think it’s been domination, but they’ve made the right plays at the right times in games.”
Puck drop is at 7PM EST.
