Bruins' Bergeron suffers undisclosed injury
Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron left Tuesday's game against the Ottawa Senators with 7:44 elapsed in the second period, and the team announced he would not return.

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins center Patrice Bergeron left Tuesday's game against the Ottawa Senators with 7:44 elapsed in the second period, and the team announced he would not return.

Bergeron's head collided with Colin Greening's elbow or forearm as the Boston center tried to prevent Greening from getting off a shot in the slot.

Bergeron, last season's Selke Trophy winner as the NHL's top defensive forward, began the night with a team-high 31 points. In his career, Bergeron has accumulated three high-profile concussions, starting with one in 2007 that forced him to miss two-thirds of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Bruins coach Claude Julien offered no update on Bergeron's condition after his team's 3-2 victory.

“I haven’t talked to him yet, but we all what kind of guy and kind of player he is," Bruins forward David Krejci said. "We don’t have to talk about it. It (stinks), but I hope it’s nothing serious and he’s going to be back in the lineup very soon."

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
