UPDATE (Saturday, 6:40 p.m.): The Bruins announced via team physician Dr. Peter Asnis that Torey Krug will miss the remained of the series against the Tampa Bay Lightning with a left ankle injury. It’s still not confirmed whether he’d miss the rest of the season should the Bruins come back and advance.
“Torey Krug injured his left ankle during Game 4 of the second round playoff series on Friday, May 4. He will not be available for the remainder of this series as he undergoes additional testing to determine the full extent of the injury. Further information will be made available after all testing is complete.”
Bruins defenseman Torey Krug had to leave Friday’s loss in Game 4 to the Tampa Bay Lightning after suffering a lower body injury in the third period.
As Krug raced for the puck in the corner against Lightning winger Alex Killorn, he fell awkwardly into the boards, appearing to suffer a serious injury to his left foot and/or ankle.
Krug was spotted leaving TD Garden in a walking boot with crutches. Head coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters after the game that Krug would be evaluated further on Saturday.
“Obviously he didn’t finish the game so that’s never great, but we’ll see how he is in the morning,” Cassidy said.
Krug logged 16:27 of ice time, including 3:48 on the power play, prior to the injury in Game 4. He had two assists on Friday and leads all Bruins defensemen with three points in the series.
