Hits come to the Boston Bruins, who will have no Patrice Bergeron center for at least four weeks with upper body injuries.
Bruins issued a statement on Tuesday, stating that a 33-year-old player suffered from rib and sternoclavicular injuries during the second period of his match against Starburst. At that time he struggled hard on the boards by Radek Faksy. Bergeron was sent home from a trip on the West Coast and evaluated again after four weeks.
Bergeron is a great start with 26 points in 19 matches and anchors one of the best tracks in the league.
Joins a long list of injured Bruins. Defender Zdeno Chara will be missing at least four weeks after injuring the MCL in the left knee. Bruins had no longer defenders Charlie McAvoy (Keeper Miller), John Moore (lower body) and Brandon Carl (upper body) as well as newcomer Urho Vaakanainen, who suffered the shock of the dead when they were filled.
In spite of the injury, Bruins remains at 25 points, which is fifth in the competitive Atlantic division.
