Vanek won't return, soft goal brings Boston closer

Apr 17, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

Tomas Vanek will not return to today’s game after suffering a “lower body injury” when he crashed into the boards during a first period odd-man rush. There’s no word on if the problem will cause him to miss extended time, but we’ll keep you up-to-date on that as we hear more.

Moving on, a Vladmir Sobotka point shot may or may not have been knocked in by Michael Ryder to give the Boston Bruins a crucial (and, according to some, soft) goal past Ryan Miller. The Bruins are now on a powerplay, showing some life now that they’re only down 2-1.

    If you watch the tape you’ll see Vanek getting slashed just above his right knee. It looks like that’s what caused him to go hard into the boards and might also be the cause of his lower body injury.
