Johnny Boychuk via csnne.comThursday night’s win over Anaheim came with a big loss. Being considered day-to-day, Johnny Boychuk left in the second period of that game with an undisclosed injury. Boychuk crashed hard into the boards and after getting off the ice wasn’t able to return to action. This led to big time minutes being played by the younger group of the Bruin’s defense core with Dougie Hamilton skating 15:24 minutes and Torey Krug playing almost 19 minutes with 18:54. The more veteran players, Dennis Sidenberg, Adam McQuaid and Zdeno Chara all put up 20 minutes plus with Chara topping all with 29:45 time on ice.Coach Claude Julien was impressed by the way the defensemen came together to power through the second of their back to back games having played the night before in Pittsburgh. Especially being down one man on the bench for the majority of the game.Well, it’s gutsy; any time you play two and two [back-to-back], I don’t know how many people realize how tough that game
