The Boston Bruins will be without David Pastrnak for at least two weeks due to a freak accident.
The Boston Bruins are cursed. That is the only explanation for all of the injuries the team has had to deal with. Now the team will be without another major player.
The Bruins can’t afford to lose Pastrnak. He has been amazing this season. Pasta has 31 goals and 35 assists. He was on an absolute tear.

Now the story of how Pastrnak got injured is a wild one. The Bruins were at a team event on Sunday night and as Pasta was heading to his car he fell and injured his thumb.
I really don’t understand how the Bruins have been this unlucky. They have been forced to play without stars like Patrice Bergeron, and Zdeno Chara for significant amounts of time. Almost everyone on this team has had an injury at some point in the season.
Now the Boston Bruins have to make a deal at the deadline. They need some scoring to make up for the major loss. The Bruins were going to be active at the deadline, but this forces Don Sweeney’s hand.
I swear the hockey gods hate the Bruins and I don’t know why. What could this team have done to anger them?
Boston was just getting on the right track too. They had two quality wins and now play the red hot Chicago Blackhawks. Without Pasta these next few weeks got a whole lot harder.
