dangolka (CBS) — Within the NHL’s bubble, three phrases have been the worst factor anyone might presumably hear: Unfit to take part.
It’s a time period that might imply something with regard to a participant’s standing within the period of security and warning concerning COVID-19.
For the Bruins, the phrases “unfit to take part” reared their ugly heads on Thursday evening, shortly earlier than puck dropped for Sport 2 towards the Hurricanes, and it regarded their main objective scorer, David Pastrnak.
The crew introduced that Pastrnak wouldn’t be enjoying in Sport 2, with no clarification apart from him being “unfit to take part.”
UPDATE: David Pastrnak (unfit to take part) is not going to play in tonight's sport. #NHLBruins

Pastrnak, 24, missed two weeks of the Bruins’ coaching classes in July for a similar mysterious purpose, as he was compelled into further quarantine on the time. He did journey with the Bruins to Toronto and has been “match to take part” since. He scored the Bruins’ first objective of Wednesday’s Sport 1 vs. Carolina, and he picked up an help on the game-winning objective in double additional time.
Pastrnak scored an NHL-leading 48 objectives in 70 regular-season video games performed this 12 months.
“Unfit to take part” was a phrase that took place amid the NHL’s implementation of COVID-19 protocols, however the time period has come for use for primarily any missed time within the NHL’s bubble. Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask was “unfit to take part” and missed the crew’s first round-robin sport vs. Philadelphia, later revealing that he had a cough and was avoided the crew for security measures.
