Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons received a five-minute major and game misconduct for boarding Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy on Wednesday.

McAvoy, Boston's top blue-liner, was forced to exit the game, but Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said postgame the 23-year-old "is good" after getting stitches.

"Let's hope he wakes up feeling good tomorrow and is ready to go Friday," Cassidy said.

Girgensons, 27, has never been suspended in his eight-year NHL career.
