  • OT - Bruins' Patrice Bergeron - UPDATED - GOOD NEWS!

    The Boston Bruins' Patrice Bergeron was just "boarded" by a Flyer behind the Bruins net.

    He hit the boards face first and his neck sprung back. He fell to the ice as lifeless as I have ever seen. They are just now taking him off the ice on a stretcher, but there is no movement.

    Talk about an eerie silence.

    Pray for him - this looks as bad as what happened to the Buffalo Bills a few weeks ago. This does not look good at this time.

    Watch for the play on TV later.

    I read on HFBoards that there was a little bit of movement in one of his legs while the brawl was going on after the hit.

    Haven't seen the hit, someone needs to get it up on YouTube.

        Some are speculating he may have just been knocked unconscious. It was eerie watching the other players getting involved after the cheap hit with Bergeron laying there lifeless.

        No vid links I can find as of yet.

                    I'm getting Travis Roy flashbacks. Hopefully Bergeron doesn't suffer the same devastating injury.

                      Jones issues statement

                      By Fluto Shinzawa, Globe Staff
                      From Randy Jones:
                      "Words really can't express the way that I feel right now. I am very apologetic for the hit and what I did. It was not intentional. It is something that I have never done before and it is not part of my character. I am extremely sorry. I hope he does OK and everything works out for him. I wish him nothing but the best in his recovery."

                      There is no update on Patrice Bergeron's condition.

                        It's hard to give a Flyer the benefit of the doubt in light of the recent dirty play from Philadelphia players, but I agree with Jones. I think he was trying to hit a guy along the boards and take him off the puck. He didn't try to hurt Bergeron.

                        This is not in the same league as Todd Bertuzzi or Marty McSorely.

                          Bergeron update
                          By Fluto Shinzawa, Globe Staff
                          Patrice Bergeron has been diagnosed with a concussion and a broken nose.

                          Initial X-rays and a CT scan have not shown serious injury to his head or neck, and he has full feeling and motion in all extremities.
