Boston Bruins fans had a lot to celebrate last night as the Black-and-Gold finished the sweep of the Philadelphia Flyers on home ice at the TD Garden, 5-1. Unfortunately, the good vibes and celebration only lasts so long.
When the team’s General Manager Peter Chiarelli speaks, everyone listens. And this morning, with the team given an off-day from workouts and practice, the GM held a press conference inside Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington, Mass., to delievery some not-so-good news about the team’s Alternate captain, Patrice Bergeron.
“Patrice suffered a mild concussion last evening,” Chiarelli bluntly said to the media. “He went into the quiet room after being hit, was assessed by our doctors, took the NHL modified SCAT 2 test and he was deemed unable to return.
“What I am told is that he is, that the concussion is mild. I have not heard about him today, I think he was still sleeping earlier this morning.
