Hamilton's status for Friday's game against the Blue Jackets may come in doubt if he doesn't improve over the next couple of days. The Bruins' defensemen have been bit by the injury bug this season, and could ill-afford to lose another for an extended period of time.

With the Bruins trailing 2-1 in the third period, Hamilton went to work.
