The injury bug claimed another Boston Bruins victim Sunday night.
Boston not only found itself down two goals, but lost a player in the opening minutes of the second period against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Matt Grzelcyk was fighting for a puck in the corner when his right arm got clipped by Patrick Hornqvist. The B’s defenseman fell to the ice and was visibly in a lot of pain. The team trainer helped him off the ice and down the tunnel.

The Bruins issued an update on Grzelcyk before the start of the third period.
The B’s already are without David Pastrnak, Marcus Johansson, Jake DeBrusk and Kevan Miller, so they can ill-afford to go down yet another player for an extended period of time.
