When the Boston Bruins begin their Eastern Conference Finals series with Carolina they are likely to be without defenseman Charlie McAvoy. The NHL wants to talk with McAvoy about that hit to the head on Blue Jackets forward Josh Anderson last night.

The referee on the ice gave McAvoy a two-minute penalty of elbowing to the head but the league can add a fine/suspenion or both.

Here's the hit...

McAvoy is on the Bruins top defensive pairing with Zdeno Chara. He averages almost 25 minutes of icetime per game during the playoffs. McAvoy has a goal and five assists.
