Charlie McAvoy is the likeliest candidate for more power-play time with Torey Krug out of action due to an ankle injury.

McAvoy finished the night with one shot on goal, three hits and three blocked shots in 23:42 of ice time.

Charlie McAvoy logged nearly 27 minutes of ice time in Game 7 against Toronto.

However, he did have some struggles defensively in the opening round of the playoffs and contributed just one assist in seven games. "I think he's doing fine," said Bruins GM Don Sweeney. "He's going to continue to grow and learn and be exposed to situations. Teams are now coaching against Charlie. He has to continue to grow from that, learn from it. He's unfazed, which is a tremendous quality in a young player. So, we're excited about where Charlie is and more importantly where he can get to."
