The Boston Bruins’ 5-3 win over Tampa Bay tonight at the TD Banknorth Garden came at a price, as fourth-line center Stephane Yelle had to leave the game in the second period after a collision with linesman Mark Shewchyk. Yelle was trying to break across the Tampa Bay blue line and he fell awkwardly after running into Shewchyk.

Head coach Claude Julien said Yelle is day-to-day and that he suffered some muscle spasms and a contusion.

As a precautionary measure, the Bruins called up Vladimir Sobotka from Providence (AHL) after the game.
