The Bruins return to TD Garden Tuesday for a brief home stint – all of one game against the Maple Leafs – before heading back out on the road to face Dallas and Chicago.
They’ll take on a Toronto team that has been hit with a flu-like bug that left David Clarkson vomiting all night and questionable for tonight’s game.
But the Bruins have their own injury concerns, yet again. Claude Julien announced this morning that Dougie Hamilton is suffering from a “mild concussion,” though he indicated that he didn’t believe the absence would be extended.
“He’ll be out for a little bit,” Julien said. “I don’t anticipate it being too, too long.”
