In what could be a sneaky-big loss for Jim Montgomery and the Bruins, Boston will find themselves down a fourth-line anchor for about a month at the very least, according to the latest medical update on Tomas Nosek.
“Tomas Nosek suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left foot during the team’s 3-1 win at the New York Rangers on Thursday, January 19,” a team-provided statement from Bruins general manager Don Sweeney read Saturday morning. “He will be reevaluated in approximately four weeks.”
Nosek, who has also been battling a lingering upper-body injury for close to a month now, finished Thursday’s contest with three blocked shots and two hits in 13:18 of time on ice.
