Marcus Johansson, who joined the Bruins in a trade with New Jersey on February 25, was rocked by a Micheal Ferland hit and left the Bruins' 4-3 overtime win against Carolina in the first period Tuesday.

Marcus Johansson has a lung contusion and will be re-evaluated in a week, the Boston Bruins announced Wednesday.

Johansson spent the night at Massachusetts General Hospital for tests and evaluation and was released on Wednesday. He was monitored overnight and was discharged today after further evaluation by specialists.

Injuries dominated Marcus Johansson's tenure as a Devil.

I think it's shocking to a lot of Canadians to see inside how cabinet and the (Prime Minister's Office) works", Rusnak told CKPR Radio.

In his two seasons with the Devils, Johansson played in 77 games, including just 29 out of a possible 82 in 2017-18.

To get out of this Garden-echoing collision with a mere lung contusion, and with a timeline that could see him return in less than two weeks, seems encouraging. Now four games into his career with the Boston Bruins following his trade from New Jersey, another injury has hit Johansson.
