After the game, Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery provided an encouraging update on Lauko, who avoided a major injury.
"Good thankfully," Montgomery said of Lauko's status. "Scary with the skate. He got it in the corner of the eye, the eye is good. Nothing touched the eye."
The Bruins went on to beat the Blackhawks 3-0 to stay undefeated, a loss that did not please Chicago head coach Luke Richardson.
