Bruins Must Have ‘Next Man Up’ Mentality As Team’s Injuries Mount

The injury bug has bitten the Boston Bruins quite a few times already this season.

The team currently is without Kevan Miller (hand), Charlie McAvoy (undisclosed), David Backes (undisclosed), Urho Vaakanainen (concussion) and Torey Krug (ankle). Fortunately, Krug has been skating with the team and could make his return this week.

In the meantime, NESN’s Billy Jaffe said the short-handed B’s need to have a “next man up” mentality in each game they’re down a player. To hear all of his comments, check out the video above from “NESN Sports Today”, presented by People’s United Bank.
