The Boston Bruins will get a bit of a break tomorrow night when they visit the Carolina Hurricanes because veteran forward Justin Williams will not be available to play.
Carolina today announced in its Tracking the Storm blog that Williams suffered a broken bone in his hand Sunday in a win at Buffalo and will miss a month of action. Williams was struck by a shot by teammate Anton Babchuk. In 32 games, Williams has posted 3-7-10 totals. He missed the first 25 games of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. Against Boston this season, he potted one goal in three games.
In other ‘Canes news, there’s a chance defenseman Tim Gleason could return.
