Boston Bruins' Linus Ullmark Leaves Game Injured vs Coyotes

Boston Bruins fans are holding their breath as star goaltender Linus Ullmark went down with injury on Tuesday night against the Arizona Coyotes.

The incident occurred during the extra frame as the Coyotes and Bruins went back and forth all game and ended up going to OT, where the Coyotes would pull out the victory. Ullmark left the game after reaching to make a glove save on a Logan Cooley shot. He was helped off the ice and of course, did not return.

The Bruins are lucky to have 1-A backup Jeremy Swayman on the bench to come in, however coming in cold into overtime is always a tough situation and Nick Schmaltz would eventually score the OT winner shortly after Swayman's arrival.

After the game, Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery confirmed to the media that Ullmark suffered a lower-body injury and will be re-evaluated on Wednesday and Thursday. He made 32 saves on 35 shots before his departure.

On the injury front, rookie Matt Poitras was also injured against the 'Yotes and left the game after sustaining an upper-body injury from a hit by Coyotes d-man Sean Durzi.

As for Ullmark, he's appeared in 21 games and has recorded a .916 Sv.%.
