The Boston Bruins are battling for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but they'll have to do it without their leading goal scorer.

Forward Glen Murray most likely aggravated a groin injury and will be out indefinitely, according to a Boston Globe report on Wednesday.

"We're gonna have to win without Glen Murray," coach Dave Lewis said, according to the Globe. "That's it. Period. End of story."

Chuck Kobasew replaced Murray on the No. 1 line in practice.

The Bruins, who weren't playing on Wednesday night, have 69 points, just four behind Toronto and Carolina for the final Eastern spot.

Murray has 28 goals this season, along with 17 assists, in 59 games.
