Boston Bruins winger Marcus Johansson is out with a lung contusion and will be re-evaluated in about one week, the team announced Wednesday.

Johansson left Tuesday’s win over Carolina in the first period after taking a hit from Micheal Ferland. Johansson was slow to get up, but left the ice under his own power.

The team’s statement said he was brought to Massachusetts General Hospital, where testing revealed the contusion. He was held overnight for evaluation.

Johansson, acquired from the New Jersey Devils in a trade last week, has 12 goals and 16 assists in 52 games this season.

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom each had a goal and an assist, and the Washington Capitals beat the Flyers 5-3 in Philadelphia on Wednesday night to reclaim sole possession of first place in the Metropolitan Division.
