Request for emergency backup from the Boston Bruins

Published December 23, 2023 at 3:44 PM
The Bruins return for consecutive games, aiming to snap their three-game losing streak.

After a disappointing performance against the Winnipeg Jets resulting in a 5-1 loss, the Bruins swiftly move on to face the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center. This encounter marks their second meeting in a week, following their previous overtime loss to the Wild at TD Garden.

During their last match, the Bruins held a 2-1 lead entering the final period, but Kirill Kaprizov's efforts initiated a comeback. Brad Marchand's late power-play goal pushed the game to overtime, where Kaprizov sealed the win with his second goal.

Although there was no morning skate, it's anticipated that Linus Ullmark will replace Jeremy Swayman in goal. As of Saturday afternoon, any potential adjustments to the lineup by head coach Jim Montgomery to reignite the team after Friday's defeat remain uncertain.

Charlie McAvoy sustained an injury during the Jets matchup but managed to come back and continue playing. In case McAvoy couldn't participate, Ian Mitchell, who was called up from Providence on an emergency basis on Saturday, was expected to step in and take his place.
