From Fluto Shinzawa of Bruins Blog at the Boston Globe:
Michael Ryder will not play today because of a facial fracture and is out indefinitely. Ryder was clipped by an Antoine Vermette high stick on Thursday. Ryder will be re-evaluated on Monday. Claude Julien said there is a possibility Ryder might require surgery, although Julien said the right wing’s eyesight is OK.
Update 1:38pm ET: From Bruins Insider at the Boston Herald—
“It’s a small fracture, so he’s out indefinitely. He’s going to be looked at again on Monday to see if he can play with a shield,” said coach Claude Julien.
The possibility of surgery cannot be ruled out, said Julien.
“It’s a shame,” said Julien. “When I say indefinitely, you hope it’s shorter rather than longer, but we’ll find out more here early in the week.”
