BOSTON -– Bruins coach Claude Julien said Thursday morning that forward Vladimir Sobotka did not suffer a concussion after being hit by the Thrashers’ Evgeny Artyukhin in the early minutes of the first period on Tuesday in Atlanta.

The team is saying it’s a neck injury, but Sobotka told ESPNBoston.com between periods of Thursday's game against Tampa Bay at the Garden that he did suffer a concussion on the hit. He said it’s not serious and hopes to be back in the lineup soon.

Tampa is leading after one period 2-1. Boston outshot the Lightning 19-8.
