Bergeron’s Battle

Here’s the piece we did on Patrice Bergeron, the 22-year old Bruins center trying to comeback from a severe concussion he suffered at the hands of Philadelphia’s Randy Jones last October.

Jones creamed Bergeron from behind, a cheap shot that earned him just a 2-game suspension, while we learned yesterday that Patrice will miss the rest of the regular season, and very likely the playoffs.

When we were allowed to watch his workouts in the weight room and on the ice at the beginning of March, you could tell he was still trying to rebuild his stamina. I can’t help but think his return would be a huge emotional boost to a Bruins team that has been frustratingly inconsistent during this playoff push. But at 22-years old, he has a long career ahead of him, so being 100% sure he’s 100%, is probably for the best.
