RALEIGH, N.C. — The Bruins will be without defenseman Hampus Lindholm for the third straight game on Tuesday night.

Lindholm, who suffered an upper-body injury in Game 2 of the first-round series against the Hurricanes after a brutal hit by Carolina’s Andrei Svechnikov, did not travel with the team for Game 5.

Lindholm has skated the last few days, and coach Bruce Cassidy is hopeful to have him back for Game 6 Thursday night in Boston.
