Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy has been placed in COVID-19 protocol and will miss Game 4 of the team's first-round playoff series on Sunday.

In 78 games played this season, McAvoy has 10 goals and 46 assists for 56 points. McAvoy, who quarterbacks the team's No. 1 power-play unit, is averaging a team-high 25:15 of ice time in the playoffs.

Josh Brown, a healthy scratch for the first three games, is in the lineup on Sunday.

McAvoy's defensive partner, Hampus Lindholm, did not play Game 3 after exiting Game 2 with an apparent injury in the second period. He is a possibility for Game 5 on Tuesday. The Bruins also made a change in the net during Game 3 as Jeremy Swayman made his first career postseason start, replacing Linus Ullmark.

Boston trails in the series 2-1.

Bruins winger David Pastrnak is the only remaining player who has yet to be in protocol.
