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.
You forget how good [Nieuwendyk] was. You hear the points and stuff and you almost forget until they kind of walk you through his career, and that was really cool for me. I might have felt it a little more than some of the other guys because he was one of my favorites growing up, but that was very cool and I'm honored to have been a part of it. I had chills the entire ceremony.
