The Boston Bruins have back-to-back wins, as they held on to defeat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 on Saturday.
However, there was bad news for the Bruins as forward Matt Beleskey left the game after the first period and didn’t return due to a lower-body injury. The injury occurred as Beleskey was hit by Taylor Fedun as he was cutting across the Buffalo blue line. There was no call on the play.
Beleskey’s right knee collided with Fedun’s hip, as the Buffalo defender pivoted at the last second.
So far, there has been no word on the severity of the injury.
Patrice Bergeron scored the winning goal for Boston.
In 24 games this season, Beleskey has two goals and five points. The Bruins host the Florida Panthers on Monday.
