“It appears to be encouraging, but I really don’t want to communicate out of transform,” Cassidy explained. “When tests are done we’ll have a far better answer.”
Ferland also took a important hit himself but stayed in the sport. Even so, when he went back again to the ice, he and Bruins forward David Backes brawled. In the course of the scuffle, Ferland wounded his shoulder and also still left the sport with an higher-overall body injury.
