Bruins' Charlie McAvoy OK after twisting knee during practice


The Bruins narrowly avoided disaster during their Wednesday practice at Warrior Ice Arena.

Charlie McAvoy and David Backes got tangled up, causing the 21-year-old defenseman to trip and twist his knee. Luckily, McAvoy was uninjured and able to finish practice without any issues.

Not exactly what Bruins fans want to see this time of year, but they can breathe a sigh of relief as McAvoy will be good to go for the postseason.

For the second straight year, the B's will take on the Maple Leafs in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Game 1 will take place at TD Garden on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.
