The Boston Bruins had a dramatic win on Tuesday night, coming back to win 6-5 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. It turned out to be a costly win as both goaltender Jeremy Swayman and defeceman Derek Forbort left the game and didn't return.

Forbort took a shot off the hand, that forced him to exit early in the first period. Forbort, who has been highlighted by Jim Montgomery again and again (rightfully so) as one of the B's best defensemen this season, racked up five hits and two blocks in that short amount of time.
Swayman exited in the third period after a collision with Bruins captain Patrice Bergeron.
Upon colliding with Bergeron, Swayman's left leg appeared to hyperextend. He was taken out of the game with help from the Bruins' medical staff as he could not put any weight on his left leg. Goaltender Linus Ullmark, who was replaced earlier in the game by Swayman after letting up five goals, came back into the game and relieved Swayman between the pipes for the remainder of the night. The Bruins completed the third-period comeback and won 6-5 in overtime after Hampus Lindholm found the back of the net. Ullmark has a 6-0-0 record with the Bruins this season so far.
Swayman and Forbort have returned to Boston for evaluation. Both are listed as week to week.
The Bruins are visiting the New York Rangers on Thursday night, as they bring their league best 9-1-0 record into Madison Square Garden.
