Bruins C Bergeron taken to hospital during Game 5 vs. Chicago for 'observation'

CHICAGO - Boston Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron has been taken to a Chicago hospital for observation after being injured during Game 5 against the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

It wasn't clear what Bergeron's injury is, or even when he was hurt. But he played only 49 seconds in the second period.

The Boston Bruins said on Twitter that there is "no further update at this time."

Chicago led Boston 2-1 after two periods. The best-of-seven series is tied at two games apiece.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
