The Boston Bruins are going to be pretty shorthanded Tuesday night.
Both Brandon Carlo and Torey Krug will miss the B’s meeting with the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center, Boston head coach Bruce Cassidy said after Monday’s practice.
Krug is out with an upper-body injury apparently sustained in Boston’s loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.
On the bright side for Boston, Carlo’s target return date is Friday, Cassidy said, so it doesn’t appear his injury is long term.
With both second-pairing defensemen out, John Moore will stay in the lineup. Connor Clifton will slot in alongside Moore. It’ll be Clifton’s first game since being activated from injured reserve following an upper-body injury suffered Dec. 29.
