Unfortunately injuries can throw away the chances of any team from winning games, series and even championships. This time, injuries are knocking the door of Boston Bruins’ center Patrice Bergeron who is expected to miss one or two games of the Eastern Conference finals with a concussion. Odds.
General manager Peter Chiarelli said Saturday that was “a safe assumption,” depending on when the series with the Tampa Bay Lightning starts. It can begin as early as Tuesday or as late as Saturday. The time table will be resolute once the Western Conference semifinals comes to an end. If that series continues, it will bring Bergeron some time to recover and get healthy once the next round starts.
Unfortunately for the Bruins, Bergeron is Boston’s top playoff scorer with two goals and 10 assists. He was wounded early in the third period Friday night on a blow by Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux. He could not come back to the Bruins’ 5-1 victory that completed a sweep of the Flyers. Scores.
Bergeron already has a medical history regarding concussions. He missed the last 72 games of the 2007-08 season with a severe concussion.
This one could be up for the bets as when might Bergeron heal and how many games he might miss due to his recent injury. Either way, we hope this guy gets ready for the start of the Eastern Conference finals. Las Vegas odds.
