Bruins center Marc Savard has moderate concussion @NHL

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Boston Bruins center Marc Savard has a moderate concussion, the second time in less than a year that he's been sidelined with the same injury.

The team said Monday there's no timetable for Savard's return and no further updates on his condition.

Savard was hurt in the second period of the Bruins' 6-2 win over Colorado on Saturday when he was checked into the end boards' glass by Matt Hunwick, his former teammate. He returned to Boston to be checked out, while the Bruins flew to Los Angeles.

Savard sustained his first concussion in a game against Pittsburgh on March 7, 2010, a hit that put him out for the rest of the regular season. He didn't return until the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Because of post-concussion syndrome, Savard missed the first 23 games of this season and didn't play his first game until Dec. 2 against Tampa Bay.

Savard has two goals and eight assists in 25 games.
