McAvoy makes presence felt in Bruins’ OT win

The first half of Charlie McAvoy’s season did not go the way anyone would have wanted. He missed nearly two months with a concussion and then another three weeks with a foot infection. By Jan. 12, McAvoy had played a grand total of 17 games.

There were grumbles among the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately crowd. His minimal impact on the B’s fortunes had a few crazies even willing to include him in a trade package that would bring back that long-coveted sniper.

But if the weekend proved anything, it is this: Chuckie Mac is back.
