Of the already-seen
Even if the loss of the attacker, 22-year-risk of doing poorly, the team has already had to cope without some of its best items for this season.
“We can count on the return of a player when he returns to the game,” said Sweeney.
“I think we have done a very good job [this season], even if [Patrice Bergeron] has missed 20 games, [Zdeno Chara] has missed 20 meetings and Charlie [McAvoy] has missed nearly 30 games, he added. Our guys have raised their game up a notch. We’re going to have to continue to play tight defensively and our keepers will be good.”
Head coach Bruce Cassidy was abundant in the same direction as his boss.
“We have faced this kind of challenge earlier in the campaign, he said. We do not expect that someone delivers the same performance as [Pastrnak], but we’ll see if some of our players that have experienced success will be able to fill some of the void left by his absence.”
