Bruins' Riley Nash needed more than 40 stitches after taking puck to ear
Hockey players are tough.
"He's in a lot of discomfort, so he's out today," Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters prior to Sunday's contest against the Philadelphia Flyers. "Going forward, hopefully there is no more damage than that. Right now, he would have a tough time getting his helmet on his head."
The possibility remains that Nash could join the team for its upcoming Florida road trip.
