In the second period of the Capitals/Bruins game, the Boston Bruins lost Kevan Miller to injury.
Kevan was going to get the puck along the boards when Alex Ovechkin hit Miler from behind, leaving Kevan going awkwardly into the boards. A scrum started up around the downed d-man.
When Miller attempted to get back to his skates, he appeared to be holding his shoulder. It looks like the shoulder that was surgically repaired last season. As the 28-year made his way down the tunnel, he fell to his knees due to the amount of pain he was in.
Now Miller has had a history with his shoulder. Back in 2014, Kevan dislocated his shoulder in a fight with Sabres player Nicolas Deslauriers. He missed over a month of action while recovering.
In February of 2015, Miller re-injured his shoulder and required surgery. He underwent successful surgery, but he missed out on the last 26 games.
Currently, Miller has 18 points (5 goals & 13 assists) in 58 games so far. Kevan also has a +15 rating.
