Brandon Carlo Scores for Bruins as New Dad

Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo missed the morning skate for the birth of his second child but made it back in time to score a goal in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference second-round series against the Florida Panthers.

Brandon Carlo, the Boston Bruins defenseman, was a no-show at Monday’s morning skate. Why, you ask? Well, he was in a pretty important place – by his wife, Mayson’s side. They just welcomed their second kid, Crew, into the world.

But don’t think Carlo let his team down. Nope. He hopped on a flight right after and made it to Sunrise, Florida, with time to spare. Just in time for Game 1 of the Bruins’ Eastern Conference second-round series. They were facing off against the Florida Panthers.

And get this – he didn’t just show up. He made his presence known. Carlo scored a goal. How’s that for a day’s work?
