Published April 9, 2024 at 10:23

Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery issued an alarming health update regarding several players prior to the playoffs. Forward Justin Brazeau and defenseman Derek Forbort participated in a pre-practice skate yesterday, yet they continue to be sidelined.

"#NHLBruins forward Justin Brazeau and defenseman Derek Forbort skated again before practice today. Both are still not expected to be ready for the playoffs, but I'll double-check when Jim Montgomery speaks later."

Montgomery mentioned that Brazeau's status remains "week-to-week" and advised against inquiries in the upcoming week.

No real update on Brazeau, who did skate before practice.

Montgomery: "He's still week-to-week, and don't ask me next week."

Maroon on track for Saturday as long as Friday practice and Saturday morning skate go well. He's not an option for tomorrow.

The ambiguity regarding their participation sparks inquiries about the team's depth as they approach the postseason.

As crucial players continue their recovery, the Bruins confront a demanding journey ahead, striving to compete at their peak to achieve playoff triumph.
