The Boston Bruins, like virtually every other team that reached the Stanley Cup playoffs, battled through injuries in the postseason.

Some injuries resulted in missed games, such as the pair Brad Marchand was sidelined for in Boston’s second-round series with the Florida Panthers. Others were dealt with while remaining in the lineup, like the broken hand Jake DeBrusk sustained earlier in the campaign.

Details of injuries in the NHL typically are kept under wraps until a season is over. So two days after the Bruins were bounced from the playoffs, players finally opened up a bit about their respective ailments.

Here is a list of players who revealed an injury to reporters Sunday:
