Brandon Carlo Suffers Upper-Body Injury In Second Period Of Bruins-Panthers

(UPDATE, 9:14 p.m. ET): The Bruins announced Brandon Carlo will not return to Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury.

(ORIGINAL STORY): Brandon Carlo was on the wrong end of an elbow Thursday night.

The Boston Bruins defenseman was headed for the corner in a race for a loose puck behind Florida Panthers’ Evgenii Dadonov. Dadonov looked over his shoulder as the duo got closer and laid a nasty (and dangerous) elbow into the face of Carlo in the second period.

Carlo remained down for several minutes before being helped off the ice.

Dadonov originally was assessed a five-minute major, but a review dropped it down to just a two-minute minor for elbowing.

The Bruins got their revenge, though, as Patrice Bergeron tied the score up at 1-1 with a power-play goal off a Torey Krug point shot.
