OTTAWA — The Bruins entered Monday night’s match having lost only seven man-games to injury. That number might change.
At 0:42 of the second period, Chris Neil dropped former Ottawa teammate Chris Kelly with a knee-on-knee hit in the neutral zone. Kelly crumpled to the ice, staying down on all fours for several minutes. He needed help leaving the ice. The No. 3 center placed no weight on his left leg. Kelly didn’t return and the severity of his injury is unknown.
