Albany River Rats Bus Rolls Over

Don't have much Bruins news to report this morning. But there's something else worth addressing in the hockey world --

The Albany River Rats' bus flipped over on the Massachusetts Turnpike early this morning. 32 players, staff, and coaches from the AHL squad were taken to the Berkshire Medical Center as a precaution.

No word yet on what exactly caused the accident, but poor weather conditions may have played a role. The club was making its way back from Lowell after playing the Devils last night.

NECN reports that there were three serious injuries in the accident. Thankfully, none of them appeared life threatening.

The River Rats play the Providence Bruins a handful of times every couple of years. They also play the Syracuse Crunch, my local AHL affiliate.

Thoughts and prayers to the players and their families. Let's hope everything turns out OK.
