Bruins 3-0 under interim coach

Red Wings’ Ericsson out for remainder of season

As if the situation couldn’t get worse in Detroit, the Red Wings will lose defenseman Jonathan Ericsson for the rest of the season because of a fractured wrist. Ericsson sustained the injury in Thursday’s 6-3 loss to the Capitals after he was slammed into the boards by the Capitals’ Nicklas Backstrom.

 

Capitals’ Burakovsky out at least a month

Washington Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky will miss at least a month of action because of a right hand injury. Burakovsky suffered the injury during Thursday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings. The good news is that it’s unlikely he will need surgery on his right hand.
