Boston Bruins star David Pastrnak didn't suit up in Game 2 against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday, but the undisclosed injury doesn't appear to be serious.

"We don't believe it will be long term," head coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters postgame, adding the forward will be a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 3, per NBC.

Pastrnak tallied one goal and one helper while playing nearly 25 minutes in Boston's Game 1 overtime victory. However, he appeared to be laboring while celebrating Patrice Bergeron's OT winner.

The 24-year-old tied for the NHL lead with 48 goals this season.

The Hurricanes evened the series at one game apiece with a 3-2 win on Thursday.
