Sounds of the game: The Looch is back

Milan Lucic [1] couldn’t have picked a better time to return. The only problem was the good vibes last all of 28 seconds on Thursday night.

That’s because Marc Savard [2] went down with a right knee injury and the injury count continued at TD Garden as the Bruins dropped a 5-2 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks [3].

The Bruins are now without Savard, pending the result of Friday’s MRI. They are without Patrice Bergeron [4] for up to six weeks with a hand injury and they are without defenseman Andrew Ference [5] for six weeks with a bad groin. Add on top of that an achy back for forward Byron Bitz and TD Garden has become TD M*A*S*H for the Bruins.

Afterward, Lucic talked about his return and the bad luck of the Bruins [6].
