TORONTO — While Chris Kelly’s injury got a bit lost in all that happened in Saturday night’s 3-2 win over the Penguins, its implications will impact the Bruins for an extended period. They announced on Sunday afternoon that Kelly will be out 4-6 weeks with a fractured right fibula, sustained when he was slashed in the second period by Pittsburgh’s Pascal Dupuis.
Kelly was placed on long-term injured reserve, meaning he can’t return until the beginning of January at the earliest.
“I think we’ve got enough players that can step up here,” coach Claude Julien said before his team faced the Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre. “Those are parts of the game that you face every year, every team.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
