BOSTON - Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli says forward Patrice Bergeron was discharged from a Chicago hospital and was expected to fly home with the team Sunday morning.
Bergeron was injured in the second period of Saturday night's 3-1 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals. Chicago leads the series 3-2 heading into Game 6 in Boston on Monday night.
The Bruins would not divulge any specifics about the injury.
What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
