Bruins’ Ullmark helped off ice with injury in OT vs. Coyotes

Boston Bruins goalie Linus Ullmark goes down in pain after making a save against the Arizona Coyotes in overtime, having to be helped off the ice by teammates as he heads to the locker room.

Boston Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark was helped off the ice on Tuesday after suffering an injury during overtime against the Arizona Coyotes.

Ullmark appeared to injure himself while stretching to make a save about halfway through overtime. He remained sprawled on the ice until training staff could attend to him. Ullmark was eventually helped to the bench by his teammates and was replaced in the crease by Jeremy Swayman.

Nick Schmaltz would beat Swayman on the only shot he faced in overtime to lead Arizona to a 4-3 victory.

Coming off his Vezina Trophy campaign last season, Ullmark, 30, has put up respectable numbers for the Bruins this year, with a .917 save percentage and 2.74 goals against average as the Bruins sit atop the Eastern Conference and third in the league.
