Savard suffers another concussion
Marc Savard suffered what the team is calling a "moderate concussion" on Saturday after a collision during the Bruins' win over the Avalanche.
The Boston Bruins received the news on Monday that they didn't want to hear.

Marc Savard suffered what the team is calling a "moderate concussion" on Saturday after the Bruins' center collided with Colorado Avalanche defenseman Matt Hunwick in the second period of a 6-2 win at the Pepsi Center.

"After being examined by the Bruins medical staff today, Marc has been diagnosed with a moderate concussion," Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said in a statement. "There is no timetable on his return and no further updates at this time."

A hit from Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke on March 7, 2010, sidelined Savard for the final 18 games last season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He missed the first 23 games of this season and did not make his debut until Dec. 2. He has 2 goals and 8 assists in 25 games.
Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
