GM Don Sweeney relayed that Pastrnak is off his crutches now and added that a second CT scan on the forward's foot yielded a positive report," the Boston Globe reports. "[The injury] showed up after the fact from the initial X-rays, so we're not going to take any chances at this point in time," Sweeney acknowledged. "We'll make sure we give him all the time he needs to heal properly."

While the general tone of the report is encouraging, it's pretty clear that the Bruins aren't inclined to rush back Pastrnak, who is dealing with a small, non-displaced crack in his foot. The skilled second-year winger -- who has notched two goals and four points in 10 games this season -- last suited up for the B's on Oct. 31.
