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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
