On Friday, the Bruins lost another goalie to an injury.
Linus Ulmark had to leave Friday afternoon game against the Carolina Hurricanes at TD Garden with an upper body injury. Ulmark was shaken at 6:57 into the third period and rolled to the bench and into the locker room after medical staff examined him on the ice.
Swaiman replaced Ullmark and stopped all six shots he faced as the Bruins took a 3-2 comeback victory in overtime.
The Bruins say Ullmark and right winger Craig Smith, who also left early Friday with an injury, are working day in and day out.
“(Ullmark) and (Craig Smith) both do upper body work. We think both will be day in and day out.” – Bruins Head Coach Jim Montgomery told reporters after the game. “They need to be looked at.”
Montgomery also said that Ullmark has his own “range of motion” and that “we’re pretty sure he’s fine.”
Ulmark was arguably Boston’s MVP in the first 21 games of the season. He posted a 13-1-0 record and leads the league with a .935 save percentage and 1.96 goals against average.
